Elite Screens Kestrel 80” Diagonal Floor Rising Electric Projection Screen: Overview

Elite Screens has developed a reputation for providing low-cost solutions for a multitude of projection screen needs.  This includes manual and electric pull-down screens of a variety of shapes and sizes, as well as fixed frame, whiteboard and portable screens.  Not stopping there, Elite Screens determined that there are conference room and home theater applications where a ceiling or wall-mounted screen is not practical.  The result was the creation of a new group of electric floor-rising screens, starting with the Kestrel screen series.

Available in sizes from 72” to 103” diagonal (16:9 or 4:3 format), the Kestrel uses Elite’s CineWhite screen material rated at a gain of 1.1.  The Kestrel has a variety of control options available and comes with everything you need to take advantage of those options.  In addition to the usual simple IR remote, the Kestrel also comes with an RF remote and an IR learning universal remote that allows you to control 7 other components in addition to the Kestrel.  Our review unit was a special 80” diameter model, which is not one of the standard models, so the specifications listed below apply to the 84” model.

Elite is known as a price vs. performance leader in the industry and the Kestrel is yet another product that fits into that category.
