A smart decision for any setting

The Acumen series of surface mounted projection screens from Draper is designed from the ground up with maximum versatility in mind. Part of our range of Core Solutions, this newly engineered screen model addresses virtually any projection environment and complements any room design.

Keenly stylish

The elegant extruded aluminum housing features a powder coat finish and a sleek radiused fascia, so Acumen looks great even when not in use.

Simple to install

Acumen features floating mounting brackets for wall mounting and ceiling mounting, and a removable fascia to allow for easy installation. No wiring is necessary with rechargeable battery-operated options that further reduce installation costs.

7-year warranty

Draper is so confident in the quality of the Acumen that we are standing behind it with an extended 7-year warranty (USA and Canada only).



Acumen was announced at InfoComm 2020 Connected and Projection Expo, two virtual trade shows that opened in June 2020. Acumen won Best of Show awards at each. And we're proud to say that once again in 2021, Acumen Recharge won Best of Show at InfoComm 2021 from AV Technology!

When delivering the award, Projector Central had these kind words to say about Draper and Acumen:

    "Before designing its new line of surface-mount, roll-up screens, Draper listened to the market and saw three key demands: for flexibility in screen materials to accommodate different lighting conditions, for motorized options that don't require nearby power, and for ever-increasing size. Acumen hits all the buttons, accommodating all of the company's free-hanging and tab-tensioned materials (including its premium TecVision line of traditional and ALR surfaces), providing motorized options that include a battery-rechargeable version that goes 500 cycles between charges, and hitting screen sizes up to 18 feet wide. The simple but elegant, durable extruded aluminum casing was also designed with ease of installation and access for maintenance in mind."
