Screen Innovations' 2.35:1 aspect ratio version of its Black Diamond Motorized 'levitating TV' projection screen is now available.
The recent recipient of several new enhancements, Black Diamond Motorized is now available in diagonal screen sizes up to 138in. It can be configured with either a 2.35:1 or 16:9 aspect ratio, and with a flush or external mount.
Black Diamond Motorized is a sleek alternative to flat panel displays, delivering high-quality images yet disappearingwhen not in use. Equipped with one motor, four custom helixes, and a spool of slender aircraft cable, the mechanism silently lowers a thin wing containing the rolled Black Diamond screen downward from a recessed ceiling-mounted cassette. The cable-hung wing then stops; from it, a small tube quickly emerges and lowers itself down to an adjustable, pre-determined image height, leaving only the image space in sight. Because Black Diamond screens do not require masking or any black drop material whatsoever, there is no visible material above, below, or on either side of the screen surface.
Black Diamond Motorized screens can be used with ceilings up to 11ft (3.4m) in height. The 16:9 versions are available in 80in, 92in, 100in, 106in and 110in diagonal sizes, whereas the 2.35:1 versions are available with 110in, 120in, 132in and 138in diagonals. Custom sizes will be made available in the future.
Black Diamond Motorized delivers zero glare and reflection in a bright environment, and its ambient light rejecting screen technology is said to reduce light scatter by over 75%.
