Video Product Review: Camp Chef Outdoor Big Screens
Family night just got a whole lot better with the addition of the Outdoor Big Screens from Camp Chef.
Currently, these jumbo movie screens are just available online at www.SportsmansWarehouse.com and are available in two sizes, 92-inch and 144-inch.
They easily assemble by just sliding the poles together and then snapping the plastic hooks on the screen to the frame. The hooks feature friction buckles that allow the screen to be tightened to keep it from flapping in the breeze.
The screen itself is made of a 600 Denier weight Oxford nylon with a silver reflective surface for sharp images with deep color saturation.
The 92-inch screen stands 80 inches high by 92 inches wide with a 45-inch high viewing area. It folds down into its included carrying bag and weighs 16 pounds. It can be used both indoors and outdoors for classes, presentations, seminars and watching your favorite films on the big screen.
The 144-inch screen is the big boy. With 126 x 71 inches of viewing area with a 16:9 aspect ratio and standing at 9.5 feet high, this one is best set up outside, unless you have very tall ceilings. It collapses down in minutes into its included carry bag and weighs 38 pounds. The 144-inch model also features a blackout drape that attaches to the rear with hook and loop attachments. It can be folded down to allow the screen to be used for rear projection.
Both screens feature the ability to place pegs through the wide legs for additional stability and even have guy lines and stakes for use in windy environments.
The one-inch steel poles are shock chained together and easily marked for quick assembly. Instructions for setup and takedown are stitched to the inside of the carrying bags so you can’t lose them.
With no noisy motors or fans, light weight and large viewing area, these screens are a great way to get the whole family together for movie nights, without any of the drawbacks of other outdoor screens.
So make the popcorn, fire up the projector and surround sound system and view your favorite movies in the comfort of your own back yard. With what you will save on movie tickets and expensive concessions, these screens will pay for themselves in no time.
