Recycling Your AV Equipment
Draper encourages everyone to recycle as much as possible. That includes all products shown in this brochure! When
you are replacing projection screens, lifts, mounts or window shades you have recyclable products. Shipping unwanted
products back to the manufacturer for recycling is expensive for you and creates unnecessary emissions. The earth-
friendly choice is to recycle locally.
If the product being replaced is in usable condition, donate it to a church, school, a charitable organization that needs
audiovisual equipment, or to a local thrift store. Reuse is the most efficient form of recycling, and your donation may be
tax deductible! For recycling instructions and help locating recyclers and thrift stores in your area, please visit
Draper Conceal/Reveal™ Range of Products
Products bearing the Conceal/Reveal name hide a projection screen, window shade, projector or flatscreen display
while not in use, moving them quickly and quietly into view when they are needed. Draper’s quality Conceal/Reveal
products allow you to get the most out of your technology and your living space. Conceal/Reveal products offer tech-
nology that’s never in your way. Watch for this logo on screen, shade, projector lift and flatscreen lift models which are

AutoReturn™ Roller for Manual Projection Screens
Available as an optional upgrade on selected models of Draper wall- and ceiling-mounted manual screens, the
AutoReturn spring roller includes a built-in inertia reduction mechanism. With AutoReturn the screen unrolls in the
conventional manner, then after a simple tug on the handle or pull cord gently retracts and slows to the closed position
on its own.
The screen (motor-in-roller with fabric attached) comes with easy-to-install latching brackets.
Latching brackets slide along a track inside the top of the case, so the case can accommodate
different sizes of screens. A large case allows for maximum flexibility. For more information visit
• Redesigned hanging brackets that slide in channels on top of the case, allowing unlimited
adjustment to avoid interference with conflicting structures above the ceiling.
• A pre-wired junction box inside left end (of audience side) and a cable exit hole on top.
• Redesigned case with a smaller overall height. White flange around the perimeter of the
case supports ceiling tile or trims out rough ceiling opening.
• “Pin connector” electrical connection of screen to internal junction box eliminates tools.
• Bottom of case that forms a slot for fabric passage and is removable without tools
for installation or replacement of screen.

Cineperm, Draper’s most economical permanently tensioned screen, consists of a 1˝ tubular aluminum frame with a
snap-on viewing surface. The viewing surface conceals the frame completely with 2˝ black borders on all sides. Because
the snap heads and the border are exposed, the Cineperm appears less “finished” than other permanently tensioned
screens. However, the Cineperm is the perfect screen for custom applications involving a cabinet enclosure or the
Draper Eclipse Screen Masking System.
Cineperm is offered with your choice of M1300, M2500, HiDef Grey, AT1200, AT Grey, or Cineflex surfaces, in all
projection formats. For more information visit www.draperinc.com/go/Cineperm.htm.
Clarion is designed for simple installation. The Clarion, like the Onyx, features snap-free and
uniform adjustable tension but with a slimmer 2” frame. The 2” wide beveled, extruded
aluminum frame interconnects on site. Permanent wall mounting brackets included.
M1300, M2500, HiDef Grey, AT1200 and AT Grey are the viewing surface choices. Any custom
size is available up to 161” diagonal HDTV. Overall size, including frame, equals image
area plus 4˝. Black aluminum is the standard frame finish. Cover the frame with optional
velvety black Vel-Tex® to eliminate reflections. Visit www.draperinc.com/go/Clarion.htm for

Rear Projection Systems
Draper RPX Systems take the guesswork out of rear
screen system design. This system folds the light
from the projector source using the finest optical
quality, first surface glass mirror. RPX provides
perfect rear screen picture quality while saving
valuable floor space. Three systems to choose from:
Mirror height, projector height, mirror angle, and
projector position (front-to-back) are all adjustable.
Custom built to accommodate any required screen
size or height.
The world’s most precise image alignment
capabilities in a custom-built rear projection system

it gives you isolated adjustment of a projector in all

position, pitch, roll and yaw.

attached to structural supports. Framed screen
“floats” in your wall opening. The wall does not
bear the weight of the screen, so no finishing or
reinforcement of the opening is required. Cut a
rough opening and set up the system. Each element
is square with the others: screen-to-projector
platform; projector platform-to-mirror; mirror-to-
screen. Saves installation time, plus installation of
projector and alignment of image is made easier.

horizontally. With a DiamondScreen, you can expect the brightest rear screen image
in the world—3.5 gain on axis. DiamondScreens have a panoramic 180° horizontal
viewing cone. The High Contrast grey optical tint provides superior color contrast,
and its anti-reflectance properties give superior performance even under conditions
of high ambient light. DiamondScreens feature superior corner-to-center brightness,
with no “hot spots.”
Infinite Resolution Uniformity Screen
Specifically designed to provide maximum legibility with any projector. Today’s
projectors offer higher resolution than ever before—and that means sharper, crisper
images. The IRUS is up to the challenge. To maintain digital image quality, the IRUS
uses proprietary technology to display the sharpest, most uniform image you’ve ever
seen. An improvement for every rear screen application, the IRUS actually provides
higher resolution than the human eye can perceive. The image is so consistent that it
can be clearly perceived even at 90° off axis.
Draper’s Cutting Edge Controls Make the Difference
Draper offers a wide range of cutting edge control options for our projector lift products. Whether
you need IR, RF or even control integration with an existing system, Draper controls mean quality and
reliability. For more information visit www.draperinc.com/go/MotorizedLiftControls.htm.
