Unparalleled Image Quality and Size

The Short Throw Lift doesn't compromise on image quality or size. With a maximum width of 113 inches and a 120-inch diagonal, this screen is a behemoth that brings movies to life.

Our Review


The Screen Innovations Short Throw Lift is a remarkable solution for those seeking to integrate high-quality video projection in both home theater and corporate settings. It's specifically designed to accommodate the growing popularity of ultra short throw (UST) projectors, offering a seamless visual experience without the common drawbacks of ambient light interference. This review delves into the product's design, performance, and overall value, providing a comprehensive look at its place in modern AV installations.

Design and Build Quality

The Screen Innovations Short Throw Lift boasts a Seamless Clamshell design that exudes a minimalist aesthetic while ensuring practicality. Its bottom-up motorized functionality allows for an unobtrusive presence in any room, appearing only when required. The screen's build is further enhanced by CNC tab tensioning, guaranteeing a consistently flat surface that's crucial for maintaining image integrity.

The screen material itself is of high quality, demonstrating a robust opaque nature that aids in delivering a purer image by preventing light from passing through. The craftsmanship is evident, reflecting Screen Innovations' commitment to durability and performance.

Compatibility and Installation

Ensuring seamless integration with UST projectors, such as the Samsung LSP9T, the screen is tailored for compatibility with the latest projection technology. Its 120-inch size and the aspect ratio provide an expansive canvas for crisp, large-scale viewing. Installation is thoughtfully addressed, with hidden handles aiding in positioning the screen without detracting from its sleek design.

Image Quality and Performance

The ALR properties of the screen are a standout feature, effectively enhancing image clarity even in bright environments. The .6 gain strikes a balance, optimizing brightness without compromising on the ability to handle ambient light. With an 8K resolution capability, the screen is future-proof, ready to deliver exceptional detail and sharpness as content standards evolve.

Diffuse Reflection imaging is another noteworthy aspect, ensuring saturated colors and preventing hotspots, which is especially important for UST projectors known for their steep projection angles.

Viewing Experience

The screen's 140° wide viewing angle is expansive, accommodating a broad audience positioning without loss of quality. Moreover, the ultra-wide 170-degree viewing angle is particularly impressive, allowing for flexible seating arrangements and ensuring a consistent viewing experience from virtually anywhere in the room.

In ambient light conditions, the screen's performance is enhanced by its ALR capabilities, which reject light from above and perpendicular angles, thus preserving image contrast and color saturation when compared to matte white screens.

Features and Functionality

The motorized retraction and extension feature of the screen is a testament to its convenience and user-friendliness, catering to modern needs for multipurpose spaces. The effectiveness of its ambient light rejection solidifies its position as a top performer in various lighting scenarios.

The edge blending capability is a boon for those looking to create an even more expansive viewing area by combining multiple screens, while the Build-a-Bundle program and the inclusive extended warranty offer additional value and peace of mind to consumers.

Practicality and Aesthetics

Aesthetically, the screen is designed to blend seamlessly with different room decors, offering a clean and uncluttered look. Its ability to disappear when not in use is a significant advantage for maintaining the aesthetics of a space. Moreover, the screen's design effectively combats glare from both artificial and natural lighting, ensuring a bright and well-defined image.

Pros and Cons Recap

Pros of the Screen Innovations Short Throw Lift include its UST projector compatibility, motorized functionality, wide viewing angle, exceptional ALR properties, and high-resolution support. However, potential limitations such as the .6 gain not being ideal for very low light conditions and the restriction to front projection should be considered.

Final Thoughts

The Screen Innovations Short Throw Lift represents a significant advancement in screen technology for UST projectors. Its design, image quality, and functionality cater to a range of users, from home theater enthusiasts to corporate professionals. While it may have a few limitations, its strengths overwhelmingly suggest that it is a product well-suited for those prioritizing a high-quality, versatile projection screen that harmonizes with modern living and working spaces.
