That's likely too long for the Redmere cable to maintain the bandwidth. You'll likely need an active or fiber solution.

You'd be close, but the material will stretch ~1/2"-1". If you have fine fingers no problem. If you have Andre the Giant hands, you may appreciate more area.

Hi Stefano -

The retractables all feature a secondary black backing layer, so your library wall (or flat panel, or white speakers) won't affect the image.

Tab tensioning gets you flatness. The material design eliminates moire. Pincushioning is essential in a tensioned retractable design to maintain lateral forces and flatness. We construct a fabric...

You'll be fine. Only perhaps one out of 30 XD users use a secondary black backing layer. It's a fine fix that can be added later if you need it, but with what you've stated you'll be fine with just...

I seem to recall a few. What's required is a sequential control, so that the retractable (120v) motor can't operate until the trap door motor (usually dc) is finished operating. ESI used to make a...

I'm not sure on the...
