Is the High Power available for ceiling mount. I would like to recess it into the ceiling with a trap door that opens when the screen comes down. Is it also available with tab tensioning on the sides?


I have an LT-150 and everyone on the forum say's this is the screen to get. I may upgrade in the future to the JVC-DILA G15. Should I just buy a Greyhawk now and live with the picture until I get a DILA? What would I be giving up now?


Thanks, Alfred--

Yes. In looking at the Da-Lite product book that came with the screen samples, the High Power is available in the Advantage Electrol, Boardroom Electrol, Director Electrol, and Executive Electrol all of which are concealed in the ceiling.


The High Power is not listed in the tensioned versions of the above screens.


Don't know about the Greyhawk. The Da-Lite High Contrast sample I looked at was way too dark with the LT150. I know the Greyhawk is higher gain than the HC but I'd want to check it out before purchasing. Does Stewart send out samples?

So what is the largest screen size you could go with before quality would be sacrificed? The room would be completely dark.


Screen sizes available:

45" x 80" 92"

52" x 92" 106"

58" x 104" 119"

65" x 116" 133"

78" x 139" 159"


Also, I noticed that all of the tensioned screens do not offer the High Power material. I sent an email to da-lite to see if this can be custom ordered. Does anyone know?

I would recommend width such that at your viewing position you are something like 1.5 screen widths away. I don't think pixel structure will be a problem (if closer then 1.5), but it is more of a personal preference on field of view, etc.

If I remember correctly the term, the HighPower screen is a self supported screen that cannot be tensioned because its not flexible. To have a tensioned screen, it must be flexible so that the guy wires may pull the screen tight.


Hope this helps, even if its not the correct term.

So are you saying that since the screen is not flexible that it does not need tensioning? Alfred--
