As some of you know the misses and I are in the middle of renovating our home and she suggeted we do a nice, clean & no hassle ht install in one our 14x18 rooms. She was on the board and was reading up on Clearpix2 screens and remembered a photo taken at CEDIA 2003 of a Clearpix setup and noticed the aluminum frame attached to the wall with the screen attached to the frame using hinges. The little idea light went off, and now wondered how we can duplicate this in the home using any fixed pro(Screen Research, Vutec, Stewart) or diy(Dazian) AT frabric in their respective frame and attach it to the two aluminum (bars, brackets?) thats attached to the wall! Of course this would be in lieu of building a proscenium, and could probably only used with inwalls or onwall speakers, but we pretty much got that covered. Just wanted some imput on what materials you could find at HD or Lowes.


Here are a few photos of what she found from CEDIA 2003

We would deeply be indebted to anyone who can come up with an idea on how to implicate or replicate this. i.e. using aluminum, hinges, drywall anchor screws etc.


Thanks Guys;)

Are you looking to duplicate the ability to have the screen swing up and stay in the horizontal position? Or just a way to mount it in front of the speakers? Mounting doesn't seem like it would be too big of a deal. From the pic, the aluminum frame seems to be giving about 8 to 12" of clearance from the wall.


For the swinging screen part, you would probably need to get some locking hinges to hold the screen in place when it is opened up.
