[The following is a release from Elite Screens]
   

Elite Screens, Inc. an innovative company that specializes in affordable high quality projector screens, today announced the Kestrel projection screen. It is a premium grade mobile electric floor-rising screen designed for executive presentations, formal functions or residential home theater rooms that require a flexible alternative to fixed wall or ceiling-mounted installations.

Elite’s Kestrel measures 84 or 100 inches diagonally in either a 4:3 or 16:9 aspect ratio and has a stylish piano gloss finish that combines its aesthetic appeal with the functional portability of its plug and play design. It’s available with Elite’s MaxWhite FG fiberglass-backed material to provide a flat and easily visible surface in 1.1 Gain.

Each unit has a built in 5-12V trigger for drop/rise synchronization with the projector’s power cycle along with Infrared and Radio Frequency (RF) receivers for a complete wireless operational package.

Reason #25 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:

I want to see product reviews of home theatre equipment that non-millionaires can afford to own. Reading articles about $50,000 home theatre setups is admittedly rather fun but, in practical terms, the info is really useless to me. While Darling Wife and I make a decent living, there's no way we can spend that kind of money on a home theatre. What I also really like and want to see: Practical advice articles that help people who are at least minimally technically competent to assess their needs and assemble a home theatre. That is, a periodic (yearly? twice yearly?) in-depth look at points to consider and equipment to buy to assemble a good high definition home theatre. Ideally, it would examine several total package price points. If you're willing to spend $10,000, here's what we recommend in terms of equipment and how to connect/install them. If your budget is smaller, here's what we recommend. If your budget is somewhat larger than $10,000, do this instead. Yes, I know you have your reference systems section each month, but an explanatory article would be nice, too. Finally, keep us up-to-date on the development of high definition DVDs and DVD players. This is what I'd like to see.
