Any UST ALR screens larger than 120"??

Hi everyone,

I'm about to swap out my conventional long throw projector for an UST. I'm leaning toward the Epson, which officially supports 130", but I can't find an UST ALR screen that is greater than 120". Anyone run across one? I don't care if it's fixed or motorized. The closest I've come across is buying the screen material and DIY frame.

Cheers

I think some of the higher end brands do, but then your talking big money custom order upwards of $5,000 at least. As far as I know there isn’t any company that sells lenticular screen material. Regular non-lenticular ALR material won’t work, as it will treat off axis light coming from a UST as ambient light. Unless you have a lot of ambient light a standard screen would be an option too.

Hi bix26,

Thank you for your post. There are still a couple of months before the Epson goes on sale so hopefully there will be more options by then.

Cheers
