Elite PrimeVision DarkStar UST eFinity Screen

The DarkStar UST eFinity employs a multilayer optical microstructure to filter approximately 95 percent of overhead light. The screen’s .5-gain and 180-degree viewing angle provides homeowners with a sharp image that maintains a high amount of contrast in rooms with lots of ambient light. Elite trims the screen out with a 9mm bezel. The DarkStar pairs just about perfectly with short-throw projectors from companies like Sony and Epson to make a killer large-screen solution at sizes starting at 120 inches (16:9).
