Screen Innovations (SI) will debut its new ST Moto, short throw motorized ALR projection screen at Booth W393. The new screen allows the use of an ultra-short throw UST projector and have the screen appear and disappear on command.

The short throw ALR material presents a stunning image up to 8K resolution, rejects the ambient light of the room and provides a no-glare surface with contrast enhancement. The CNC tab tensions system mounting design ensures a flat and tight screen.   

The ST Moto’s large screen size of up to 120-inch option is more than 140 degree of viewing angle, for complete coverage of any viewing environment. The screen is outstanding, with the use of a laser ultra-short throw projector that gives you the big screen experience and disappears when done.
