I have a 100" Elite screen that I want to be able to make free standing so it can sit on top of a media console by itself without needing support from a wall. Does anyone have suggestions on where to buy such a thing, or the best way to build it?

Maybe you could attach 2 or 3 vertical support posts directly to the back of the console? Alternatively, you could also hang the screen from the ceiling with chains or cables? confused.gif

Is this a fixed frame, manual pull down, or electric drop down?
Fixed frame may need more support than you would think to keep from flexing as in possible a drywall or ply wood sheet attached to the uprights under the screen. .. Anything is possible with the proper skillset, and/or money..
The assumptions is this media center is out in an open concept room with no wall? Since you want it over a media center (heavy furniture) I would modify the media center to act at the base to the supporting structure.. Assuming carpentry skills and equipment..
Typically from what I have seen online, free standing screens are much larger and I do not recall ever seeing a universal stand assembly...If Elite does not offer what you want, I think it is a DIY project.

It's a fixed frame. I agree I'll probably have to build a stand.
