Projector screens can provide a cost-effective alternative to large-screen televisions for viewing media with a projection system.They take up less space than a traditional television set and can be easily rolled up if you wish for it to remain out of view. If you are currently using a manual pull-down projection screen to view media and wish to roll it up, you can do so manually. Rolling up your pull-down projection screen can allow you to store the screen in small, compact areas.
