Dark Star Max UST Screen by Elite Screens at CEDIA 2019 – Video

Posted on October 11, 2019 By Phil Jones

Elite Screens had their new Dark Star Max UST Screen displayed this year at CEDIA 2019. The booth was bathed in ambient light, but this ambient light rejecting screen for ultra short throw projectors performed quite well!

Unlike your typical motorized screen, which comes down from a box mounted to your wall, the Elite Screens Dark Star Max UST Screen rolls up from a box that you can put on a low table.

Your typical ALR screen that’s designed for standard throw projectors interprets the light coming from a UST projector has ambient light, and therefore don’t provide the right quality of image for these projectors, as they significantly wash out the projected image.

That’s where a screen like the Dark Star Max UST come in. We will be getting one of these in for review soon, and Art will be testing it out with some ultra short throw projectors for his review.
