Creating a good MTR is not as simple as purchasing a bill of materials (BOM). Even with the best, most expensive hardware, you can still get a poor end result if it’s not deployed properly. 

With our MTR solutions, we’ve done the hard work for you. Created to meet the growing need to simplify the MTR design process, our standards-based systems make it easy for you to specify, order and install the latest Microsoft recommended display configurations, with guaranteed results.

Exceptional image quality and AV standards compliance, guaranteed:

  • dnp Supernova - ambient light-rejecting projection screen with an advanced optical lens system and matt black surface for perfect, detailed images and no reflection, even in brightly-lit environments 
  • Epson 3LCD projector (with 21:9 EDID for direct connection to MTR Compute PCs)

Call us for advice and a wide range of options.


These are the models for a standard room height of 2.7m (9’) where image height is constrained between the height of the ceiling and the bottom of the image.

Ask us for alternative options as needed.

What is Front Row?

Front Row is a 21:9 aspect ratio widescreen layout, which allows multiple essential content, video and dialogue windows to be displayed simultaneously on the same screen. 

Features include: a centralised main content window (making it unsuitable for use with twin screen displays); a row of individual remote participants ranged along the bottom (as close to lifesize as possible); plus side windows for chat, dialogue etc. 

Although it can be deployed in both 21:9 and 16:9, it really is a 21:9 layout.

When do I use 21:9 and when 16:9?

Rooms intended for exclusive Front Row use - and/or want a modern version of telepresence - usually with the shallow curved table and a single row of seating - should use 21:9. 

Rooms intended for multiple types of Teams use, non-Front Row, or non-Teams should use 16:9.

How large?

In theory, display size is calculated using AVIXA’s DISCAS standard. In normal use, it applies to the height of the entire display image.

However Front Row has the main content in a window that’s about 60% of the image height - and DISCAS should be applied to this content window rather than the entire display image.

Which projector?

Microsoft uses Epson projectors in The Hive, whose models are now upgraded with 21:9 EDIDs for direct connection to MTR Compute PCs, for full Front Row support.

The EB-PU1006W fitted with the X01 UST (ultra short throw) lens is their main choice, with the EB-800F the low-cost alternative.

Which screen?

The dnp Supernova range of ALR (ambient light rejecting) screen material (standard and UST) is the only screen material guaranteed to work under normal room lighting conditions.

If you can’t do it with dnp Supernova, you can’t do it, it’s as simple as that.

What are the projector mounting options?

Depending on your chosen solution, there is a range of mounting options available.

For the EMRs you can either use the floor-mounted system, comprising projector stand, mounting plate for Compute etc and stand for VC camera, or credenza all-in-one units housing screen, projector and equipment rack.
