Ambient Light Rejecting Electric Screen

Polar Max Recessed

ISF Certified Products

The Polar Max Recessed Series is an In-Ceiling projection screen that features a tensioned ambient/ceiling light rejecting (ALR/CLR®) material.

Polar Star® is an award winning, ISF-Certified front projection screen material that enhances picture brightness, color, contrast, and black/white levels for use in a bright or dark room.  The screen uses a tab-tensioning system to achieve optimal flatness with surface tension uniformity. Infrared (IR) and Radio Frequency (RF) remotes are included, a detachable wall box controller, and wired and wireless 12-volt trigger capability. The retractable design provides a big screen performance without dedicating wall space to exclusively one purpose, enabling the viewer to enjoy greater versatility with a disappearing screen when not in use.

Notice to Installer:

Please use the following installation instructions to obtain superior optical performance from the Polar Star® Angular Reflective ALR (Ambient Light Rejecting) Screen.

  • Angular-Reflective material is not compatible with ultra/short-throw projectors
  • Minimum lens throw ratio 1.5x image width
  • Ambient light must not come from the same direction as the projector

Since angular-reflective means that the projected image will reflect at the mirror-opposite angle, it is important to position the projector so that the viewer will get the best possible image.

  • Step 1: Establish the general “eye level” of the viewers
  • Step 2: Set the appropriate projection level
  • Step 3: Adjust the screen height level and projection angle

Input Angle (A) = Output Angle (B) aligns with the viewer’s angle
