The Pro Frame Thin DarkUST is Elite ProAV’s EDGE FREE® ultra-short throw fixed frame screen. It uses our innovative ceiling/ambient light rejecting DarkUST material which absorbs up to 95% of overhead light.

The DarkUST material has a serriform optical surface structure made specifically to negate the washout effect caused by overhead and other off-axis light sources. This technology allows the material to retain image brightness, color saturation and contrast for superior picture performance. The EDGE FREE® design permits the DarkUST material to wraparound the inside of the frame to maximize the viewing area in a smaller footprint. The material is designed for use with ultra-short throw table-top configurations without worrying about shadowing the picture when giving a presentation in front of the screen. The Pro Frame Thin DarkUST compliments any boardroom, training facilities decor.

Screen 5 stars, Light Kit 0 Stars
The screen is built extremely well - especially seeing I had to take it off the wall numerous times to try and figure out the worthless light kit. I had a cheaper Elite screen and there is a major step up in quality when going with their pro model. I can't compare this with the Grandview (the other close option), but the screen material is excellent. I have this paired with the Epson UST and I have a very good viewing experience with a TON of ambient light. Light coming from the side is still an issue (way too many windows in my space), but it's amazing at blocking overhead lights - we leave our skylights open 100% of the time now! FYI - when viewing the screen from the floor, it looks light gray - when viewing from above, it looks black.

I decided on the elite screen as it was supposed to be easier to put together and have a channel for a light kit. The second part (direct quote from customer service) was extremely misleading. Turns out the light kit is for Elite's Aeon series screens, not the Darkstar. For light kits to work with screens, the LED strip needs to be perpendicular to the wall or at least shine outwards on the wall - similar to how Screen Innovations does it. After WEEKS of going back and forth with customer service and having to prove that placing the LED strip *anywhere* on the back of the screen will not produce ambient light, I am told that Elite wants me to attach the $10 strip of LEDs to the outside of the frame. Obviously, this is a joke, as it's a $2700 screen and I won't tape a tacky LED strip on the outside of it. In the end, I made my own .5" frame out of wood and then mounted the screen to that frame. I was very disappointed that customer service did not offer any compensation for the weeks of back and forth trying to figure this out, the additional expense, or the misleading advertising. They should say the screen comes with a light kit, but won't work unless you tack it to the outside of the frame. Hopefully, this either saves someone a similar headache of figuring it out or an idea for how to make a subframe work!

Elite PFT120H-DST

Nice quality construction and everything fits together nicely. Worth the price. Results are amazing. The instructions are inconsistent between what’s comes with the product and what is available on-line.

Example, Sequence of when to install center support, no mention of black springs use. (I figured it out after putting on wall the obvious sag of bottom outer trim piece.

Special thanks to David Solomon for recommending this screen!
