Eastporters is based in Hamilton, Ontario, but they do a lot of US business and have a US-specific web presence.

I ordered a 106" manual pulldown screen from Staples.ca and it did say 3-10 business days before it ships but I think it's been more than that and it still hasn't shipped.

Is there a place in Canada that has these and ships fast? If so I might cancel my order with Staples if it doesn't ship very soon.

Thanks

I got my screen (as well as a few other items) from Eastporters.  Both times I ordered from them my items shipped the same day or the next business day and I received them within 3 days.

Just wanted to post my experience with Eastporters when it comes to ordering items and it will really depend on what your ordering. I placed an order for a 120" 2.35 Reference tab-tensioned motorized screen and was told it took about 3 weeks to fulfill. It will now be going on 7 weeks and I still have not gotten it which I feel is way to long to have to wait. So just know that not everything ordered through them will arrive to you the next day. If I ever get this screen in my hands I will post impressions but at thus point I wish I just paid more for another Stewart screen as I got that a lot quicker.

It appears that Visions.ca doesn't sell the manual, but they have the motorized 106".

I have made many purchases from Visions, both in brick and mortar and online and I have always been happy with them.

We apologize for the delay on custom-built screens this holiday season. It was an especially busy holiday season at the factory this holiday, and that, coupled with the fact that once the screen got to Canada, there were about a week worth of delays due to the storm in Ontario (Purolator here worked for only two days last week, for example, and on those two days, they didn't really have movement on the shipments) made the 3-4 week delivery guidance we give our customers who order custom-built screens for their unique size needs slipped to about 6-7 weeks for a few of the customers. All the screens for these customers are now on route to their homes, and they should be getting it in the next few business days.

As far as non-custom screens, like the manual 106" screen the Canadian gentleman was asking about, if Eastporters.com has it shown as in stock, it will be shipped the next business day after it is ordered, and he would get it in 1-5 business days, depending on your location relative to Hamilton, Ontario. If ordered today, it will ship on January 2nd.

Please any help on this would be appreciated.

I don't know if this is the only way to do it, but it's the way that worked for me:

 

1. Raise the screen up all the way

2. Insert the yellow tool into the hole "B" (3/4)

3. Turn in the direction that you want based on whether you want to increase or decrease the drop (I did 2-3 full turns to see how much of a change it would make, then did more or fewer turns afterwards based on the result).

4. Remove the tool and press the button to lower the screen.

5. Repeat 1-4 as many times as necessary until you're happy with the drop.

 

This is what worked for me, but as with any advice, your mileage may vary.

Has anyone here had curious experiences with the Elunevision fixed screen hardware? I started putting together my 100" screen today and hope to finish the assembly on Saturday.

When I opened the hardware box there were four pieces that were jot shown in the printed manual or online. They looked like they should be added to the corners, so I put them there.

There were 16 places for corner L joiner screws, but only 13 screws and 14 washers. That turned out to not be such a problem as not all of the holes lined up and I could get only 13 screws onto holes without fear of stripping them.

My biggest problem however has been with the material tensioners. The manual shows them as being black. The ones I received were opaque white. There were supported to be 26 of them, but there were more, maybe 10 extras.

Unfortunately, it looks like I am going to need the extras. So far two of the 26 have distorted under tension causing the screen material to slip out of the holes. I have attached the screen material to five end piece tensioners and to the 16 width tensioners, but these opaque white tensioners seem to bend when I get the tension on them.

Of course, these means that every time one bends, I have to take the end piece off to replace then tensioner piece.

Did anyone else get these white tensioners and did they work without incident?

Can someone post some pics of their images on their screens? I am curious about my setup cause I cannot get the image to fill the entire screen. I got the 120" reference tab-tensioned screen and I am unable to get the top/bottom to get filled by the image. However I do have the image bleeding into the left/right. I am using a W1070. From this I think either some sort of dimensioning is wrong somewhere. It is very subtle but I am just curious if it is just my setup or something else that people notice.

I got my screen from Eastporters. It is the tab tension reference 4K screen 92 inches with wireless trigger. I paired it with one of their JVC X35 projectors and the picture is outstanding. No problems what-so-ever.

The quickest way to see if the dimensions are wrong is to measure the screen.

For a 16:9 120" diagonal:

Width = 104.59 inches
Height = 58.83 inches

Hi Mexicanuck, I just unboxed my 115" 16x9 4k screen today and I noticed some of the same issues you mentioned.

Same here. I'm guessing you're referring to the black L-plates that match up with the hole patterns in the corners. Looks like the manual was printed before those parts were added to the design, so the manual is a bit out of date and they are not shown anywhere. They seem to work just fine in the corners.

In my screen I received 16 machine screws with hex heads, as expected. However, I don't seem to have received any washers at all. I didn't need the washers so I'm not worried about it.

Curiously, there was a dead bug at the bottom of my hardware parts baggie. No extra charge I guess. smile.gif I fished him out of the bag and threw him away -- the parts were just fine. Maybe he ate the washers? biggrin.gif

The machine screws matched up nicely with the corresponding holes in the L-brackets. However, it took a lot of elbow grease to get things aligned properly. In my case it was very important to make sure the screen frame was exactly squared up as I was lining up the screws with their holes. Also, it's very important to make sure the two pieces are precisely aligned along the miter joint. Lastly, it helped when I threaded the outer screws first, then threaded the inner screws, then tightened all four down bit by bit, alternating between the four screws as I tightened them down.

If the screws don't thread into their holes with finger strength, it's worthwhile checking the frame is true and the miter joint is matched perfectly. I had to readjust (partially disassemble and reassemble) a couple of the corners a few times before everything lined up correctly.

My tensioners are also white nylon, not black nylon as shown in the manual. Again I think the manual is slightly out of date. However, white or black nylon shouldn't make a difference, hopefully. There are a bunch of extras. Perhaps they put the same number of tensioners in regardless of screen size, with the extras thrown in in case some tensioners get warped.

I haven't tried stretching the screen into the frame yet, I'll post again when I do. So far the assembly has gone smoothly, knock on wood. smile.gif

Hey guys, here are pics from my build...this was from May 2013.

I purchased a 145” diagonal 2.35 EluneVision AudioWeave 4k – I had 6 different screen samples on my wall. It came down to Seymour center stage XD and the AudioWeave. AudioWeave edged the XD out.

Delivery was right on time and I had it a few weeks before I needed it for the build.


One long box!!




Well packaged:


It was nice to NOT have my chairs in the room yet. They were still in the garage:

The frame is strong and easy to put together.


The plastic rods were LONG I had to be creative to get them in





Standard french cleats to hold it up. I only put them on the top...I used 4. I can't imagine doing this without a laser.



Panels going back up


Screen! ... the wide angle lens makes the size look small....it's huge smile.gif

Due to the delays with my order from Staples.ca I cancelled the order. I had ordered the 106" manual pulldown screen with white 1.2 gain material.

I've since gotten my Mitsubishi HC7900DW and blacks aren't as good as I was expecting given the rated 150 000:1 contrast and it's brighter than I was expecting so I'm wondering if I should consider a gray screen?

I was also considering an electric screen, is it true the least expensive electric series doesn't allow you to set how far down it goes before stopping? Do they support the 12v trigger from my projector?

Thanks

In what way did the AudioWeave edge the XD out?
When I put a sample of the AudioWeave up against my XD screen it was not only darker in colour but the holes were larger.
When I played a number of BDs with the sample AW up against my 146" XD the AW was less bright, its gain must be lower.

Holes are smaller on AW. But gain is higher on XD. If I sat 18' further back I would pick XD for the gain. For me, I can see the XD weave more. I tested even after putting up the AW against my 24" XD sample...same results.

I had 4 non AV folks look at samples side by side from 12'. All 4 picked AW for less weave and XD for more gain (brightness in their words)

Hi RapalloAV

Maybe possible you have the wrong sample or was sent wrong sample perhaps by mistake? Send me a PM, and maybe some photos and I can tell you. I know for sure that the holes on the AudioWeave Reference 4K has smaller holes and more of than then XD material. I have compared both as well. The weave is also smoother and less bumpy that contributes to seeing much less texturing.

I stayed with XD rather than the sample I had from AW as the gain on XD is much higher. I have a 146" diag scope screen and I need a screen with the higher gain, Centre Stage XD will give a much brighter image on a large screen than a Audio Weave screen will.

My front row is 3M from my screen, you certainly don't see texture or weave at that distance.

If I used an Audio Weave screen that was 146" diag the image would be too dull for my taste.

Sorry I made a mistake, the holes are not larger on the AW screen compared to the Centre Stage XD screen. I meant to say the gain is much lower than the rated 1.15, the XD screen produces a much brighter image.

I’ve compared several screen materials. My “guess” the XD is about 1.0 and the AW is about .95.
This test puts the XD at 0.94
http://www.accucalhd.com/documents/accucal_front_projection_screen_report.pdf

But any way you slice it, clearly the XD has a bit more gain than the AW.

You have a great build!

I shoot a 145" 2.35 screen with A lens too. (my build thread is behind....I've put ~600 hours on my PJ and screen set up)

I know I couldn't be 3M (~10ft) from either screen without seeing the texture. I guess I'm more sensitive to the texture...and I have 20/15 vision (better than 20/20).

Also, I think your e-shift could also be helping too. I *think* more pixel fill allows closer seating and less texture to be seen. I know I’ve seen the Sony 1000 (true 4K) on a micro perf and IMO the holes were harder to see…so I assume the same is probably true for a weave too….can’t wait for the Sony 600 to cost $5,000 smile.gif

I got my EluneVision Triton manual pull down screen last week but I have a very hard time getting the screen to stop at the same level each time, almost each time I pull it down I adjust my vertical lens shift to align the image to there the screen stopped. Even with the projector on so I can see the image as I pull down it never seems to stop at the same place.

I thought I read you can set the stop position on this model, is this right? I don't recall seeing that in the small instruction sheet that came with it.

Thanks for any help with getting it to stop at the same place each time.

I'm also curious about this. If you can't set that point with the manual Triton screens, can you with the Triton motorized and/or tensioned?

Also, I was wondering if there is any hope of fitting a 106" screen in anything smaller than a commercial van? I live within easy driving distance of Hamilton so I could potentially pick up my order.

Has anyone had a tensioned Elunevision screen (Reference or Titan) for a number of years now? Any waves or sags show up after a while?

Thanks!

On a portion of the top left side of the screen, about the size of a pizza box, is a image distortion that looks like swirling heat waves. Now my JVC is on an open shelf with lots of breathing room, so there is no heat build up. It really only shows on white or light color scenes but is rather distracting. I lived with it, because I was convinced my old PJ was the issue, in fact I went and got a different totally open shelf when I got the new PJ. Has anyone else experienced this? I was also curious how one cleans these screens ?


Ok I am a meat head, there was a heat vent blowing between the screen and the PJ eek.gif . Can't believe I didn't think of that. The screen is perfect.
