This tension PVC surface is the best choice for today’s high-contrast ratio projectors in commercial or residential presentations. The CineWhite material equals the performance of Elite Screen’s MaxWhite® product but makes it even better due to the CineWhite material’s superior surface flatness.

My experience: The image I projected onto the Cinewhite surface had no visible distortion from ripples or creases in the screen material.

The CineWhite screen has a black-backing designed to eliminate unwanted light penetration from the year. This screen features a 1.3 gain with a 180-degree viewing angle and is ISF certified for achieving accurate color reproduction and image fidelity.

My Yard Master became a Deck Master :)

My experience: The CineWhite screen lived up to its off-access viewing specifications. I had to place the screen to the far-right due to my deck’s size, which allowed me to test the off-access viewing on this screen from the left side. I have to say the image maintained its brightness, color, and consistent contrast even at extreme angles. The screen is designed to maintain image quality up to 90 degrees off-access. To my eye, the image looked good beyond this, which is good to know even if you probably won’t ever seat people at this extreme angle.

The screen is built using a mildew-resistant, multi-layer PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) with texture and surface coating that can be easily cleaned with water and a moist cotton cloth. This screen is perfect for projecting a wide range of content from Active 3D, 4K Ultra HD, and HDR sources and can be used with ultra-short and standard throw projectors.

My experience: I did a test by cleaning the corner of the screen with warm water and a soft cotton cloth. Once the screen dried, there was no visible difference between the area I wiped down and the one I left alone. The image just looked uniform. I would also add that the screen material is not as heavy as I anticipated, which is great because this made installation must faster.

WraithVeil Screen Material

Elite Screen’s second screen formulation is its WraithVeil rear projection screen material. WraithVeil is Elite Screen’s rear projection screen material. It has a high gain performance for applications with high ambient light conditions. The screen offers a 2.2 gain with a 160-degree viewing angle, so it’s ideal for events such as clubs, restaurants, trade shows, meeting rooms, and outside evening presentations.

Supports 4K, HDR, 8K, and 3D Sources

The WrathVeil screen can display content from various sources, including Active 3D and 4K Ultra HD Ready. This high-quality screen material will work with ultra-short and standard throw projectors with rear projection capability.

Like the CineWhite screen, the WraithVeil screen is built using textured PVC with a mildew-resistant surface coating, so it can also be cleaned with a soft cotton cloth and mild soap and water.

OPTIONAL LEGS FOR A TALLER SCREEN

Optional Zoom Legs

Sometimes we just need the screen to be raised higher. Our backyard movie night requires a higher screen setting so all the guests can easily see the movie. The Yard Master 2 now has an add-on feature that makes this possible. Elite Screens is now offering high-quality extended legs that perfectly match the Yard Master 2 and Yard Master 2 WraithVeil Dual models, adding more than 27 inches of extra height. This provides a significant height advantage allowing your movies, presentations, or any projected content to be seen by a larger group of colleagues or friends from a greater distance.

WARRANTY

Each Yard Master 2 screen system version comes with a 2-year warranty on the screen and frame. You may be eligible for a 3-year warranty offered through the Elite ENR-G program designed specifically for education, non-profit, religious, and government institutions.

Elite Yard Master 2 on My Deck

The Elite Screen Yard Master 2 portable screen system with CineWhite screen provides an excellent picture with no visible distortion introduced because the system is remarkably flat for a portable screen. The Yard Master 2 system I reviewed was quick and easy to assemble, only taking me about five minutes by myself. The screen 1.3x gain makes for a great-looking image with excellent color reproduction. The black vinyl backing prevents any light from coming through in a room with uncontrollable ambient light sources from the rear, so the front image looks great.

The CineWhite screen maintains a highly viewable image, excellent viewing angles, and provides the best possible picture in dark outdoor environments.

You can purchase the Elite Screens Yard Master 2 Series directly from Elite’s online store or several authorized Elite dealers/resellers.
