I bought two pieces of structural aluminum tube from Online Metals to raise the height of the screen. (Structural aluminum tube, not pipe. It's not cheap, but worth it.) Bottom edge of my screen is now about 59" off the floor. Each aluminum tube is 24" long, and one fits snugly inside the other. One has an outside dimension of 1.375" (same as the center post) and the other has an inside dimension of 1.402" The larger tube fits snugly over the center post and the smaller tube, extending the height by 24" It fits well, so the screen does not teeter or become appreciably less stable. (Remove the black plastic plug from the top of the center post for everything to work.) I also bought from B&H photo the Hakuba PSTC 400 Pro Series Light Stand or Tripod Case - for Light Stands or a Tripod up to 46" Long (Black). It doesn't fit perfectly but allows me to check the screen safely on airplanes. Also, the lines on the screen will largely disappear if you store the screen with the center line facing up or leave it open awhile before you use it. I haven't figured out how to lessen the sag at the top yet but it doesn't bother me much.
While the convenience of the 2 part system makes it easy to transport and set up, the fact that it is simply a roller blind set sideways means the top and the bottom edges curl toward the back making the edges of the projection distorted or reducing the actual projection area. I will be looking for alternatives.
This is a real handy screen. I put on photography workshops and the screen fits perfectly in one of my light stand bags for airline travel. Screen sets up and tears down quickly and easily. The only problem I have with it is that it doesn't go very high. You are really limited as to how high you can put it. I have had people standing in the back because it was too low for them to see. They should make an extension pole that you could place on top of the stand to connect to the screen. SHould be easy to do.
I recently purchased an Epson 5210 projector as well as the duet portable projector screen. They are both great products. However, the screen has 2 vertical lines in the center. The top rolls as well, but my main concern is with the 2 vertical lines in the center. can anyone tell me how to fix this?
