This is great news. I understand someone else may also have an ALR screen for UST projectors that is motorized, but I haven’t tracked I down yet. This one should work great though, with performance similar to the rigid UST ALR Black Diamond SI screen that I have been using to evaluate UST projectors (business/education/home) under far less than ideal room conditions!
What makes this one very different from the SI Slate ALR screen that I have in my living room setup is that this new version is for ultra short throw projectors. Now, that’s important because UST projectors can do well in non-dedicated theater type environments. But, until now, you were stuck with a fixed wall screen.
With the SI motorized ALR UST Slate screen, now you can have your wall back, when not viewing. That’s a huge advantage in a living room or family room compared to having, say, a 65” or 71” LED TV on the wall, which, when not on, of course, is just a big black hole on your wall, aka ugly!
More later on the Solo Pro, but it should be an ideal screen to pair with Sony’s VZ1000ES, which, being UST cannot work with normal ALR screens. Cool!
More to come from CEDIA. Including new projectors from JVC, Epson, and others!
And look for a number of videos from the show, which we will publish over the next week or so. Most will be on our YouTube channel, but a few will be our website only.
