Screen Innovations announces first ambient light multi-format screen11 May 2015
Screen Innovations (SI) is now offering the first ambient light screen, the Slate .8 featuring SI’s largest, most versatile ambient light-rejecting screen technology to date. It is available in sizes up to 250in (diagonal) in Zero Edge FLEX, fixed and motorised screen formats.
The lower gain slate screen was invented in 2013 and functions by rejecting 65% of a room’s ambient light, compared to a white and grey screen’s rejection of less than 10%.
“We will stop at nothing to fulfil the needs of our customers. During testing, Slate .8 caused our beta partners to think beyond the former capabilities of their projectors,” said Ryan Gustafson, chief designer, founder, and president of SI.
“Our dealers are installing Slate .8 in well-lit rooms, and experiencing black levels and improved contrast that were unimaginable a year ago. SI employees, motivated by our enthusiastic beta partners’ response, are pushing the boundaries of two-piece projection every day, creating major industry advancements. Slate .8 is the first massive, ambient-light black screen in the world that has created a paradigm shift for large screen projection applications.”
Slate is made from a flexible, multi-particle optic material that delivers a 55% increase in contrast over its nearest competitor, and is designed to blend with the décor of any environment.
