INSTA-DE 2 SCREEN SERIES
Section 1: Screen Design
1.1
What is it for?
The Insta-DE 2 Screen is a wall covering film material that instantly converts entire walls
into a professional dry-erase whiteboard / projection screen surface for use with
standard or short-throw projectors.
1.2
How does it work?
The Insta-DE 2 Screen is installed with double-sided film tape or with a spray adhesive
that is applied to its backing. It has a special anti-reflection layer to provide a wide
viewing angle when use in a projection application, which helps maintain picture clarity
and brightness. It combines the need of both chalkboard and drop down projection
screen into one simple low cost solution. Preferable locations for the Insta-DE 2 include
entire empty wall spaces or converting old whiteboards into professional-grade 1.1 gain
projection screens with dry-erase capabilities. This 2-in-1 product combines both
projection screen and whiteboard into a cost effective and space conscious instructional
tool. During video presentations, its diffusion uniformity provides a wide viewing angle
for superior color reproduction and picture quality. As a dry-erase whiteboard, it
utilizes ordinary dry-erase markers and is just as easy to maintain as a regular
whiteboard.
* The biggest problem with projecting directly on a whiteboard is that a whiteboard is not designed for
picture quality which results in a resoundingly poor image. The Insta-DE 2 screen’s 1.1 gain material
corrects all that and is easily attached to a smooth surface, instantly converting entire walls or chalkboards
into a quality dry-erase writing surface that doubles as a projection screen.

4.2 Preparation & Installation
4.2.1 Preparation
The Insta-DE 2 product is to be solely installed on flat surfaces.
Prepare the flat
wall/surface by cleaning the entire area. Do not install if any imperfections are found on the
surface such as drilled holes, glue/tape residue, dents, etc. We recommend sanding the
area first to make sure you have a clean flat and smooth surface. Failure to remove such
imperfections can damage the product. The dry erase function of this product requires a
smooth writeable surface and Elite Screens is not responsible should these instructions not
be properly followed.
Take the Insta-DE 2 film roll out of the package and unroll it on a clean surface and lay it on
its front side.
4.2.2 Installation
1. Begin by marking the size of the screen size to be installed on the wall or surface.
2. Peel off one side of the double-sided adhesive tape and apply it from top to bottom
(vertically) every four to six inches apart until the marking has been completely filled
with the tape strips.
3. Remove three to four strips from the double-sided tape.
4. Carefully pick up the Insta-DE 2 film and make sure the back side is facing the wall it will
be installed on. Do not allow the film to fold in any way to avoid permanent damage.
Note: The back side of the Insta-DE 2 is shinny.
5. Gently bring the Insta-DE 2’s edge as close as possible to the first vertical strip (avoid

allowing the material to touch the other tape strips) double-sided tape, align it, and
gently press on the Insta-DE 2 with your fist to finish attaching the first end. Continue to
attach the rest of the material to the other adhesive exposed tape strips and smoothen
out as needed using the included smoothing tool.
6. Repeat the process throughout the rest of the material and use the smoothing tool in an
upward and downward motion to assure a flat installation and to remove any air
bubbles/pockets that could arise.
Caution:
The adhesive surface is meant to be permanent for the life of the product. It does not
remove easily. Please attach very carefully to avoid having to remove the product and
positioning it in a different location.
