Norwegian system integrators (and dnp denmark partners) Intrepid AV recently revitalised a film enthusiast’s home theatre.
Frequently, home theatre environments are not completely darkened, so the challenge is to be able to deliver top-quality images in conditions with a certain level of ambient light. Intrepid found exactly the right screen to meet the customer’s needs.
The customer made a heartfelt plea to the specialists to “find a screen that will improve the picture quality” at his home theatre in Drammen. Intrepid AV already had the perfect solution in mind. “A picture paints a thousand words, they say, so we arranged a live demonstration of a dnp Supernova screen,” recalls the company’s Kjetil Tveter. “And I am glad to say that our customer was overwhelmed by the quality.”
Intrepid specified a large 128-inch Supernova Core 2.35:1 (cinemascope) optical projection screen with black velvet frame, configured with 08-85 screen material. This is used in conjunction with a Sony VW1000 4K projector.
What exactly is it that makes dnp’s Supernova screens stand out from the crowd? Kjetil points out that Supernova is the first front projection screen to break the 15:1 image contrast barrier. “Compared with an ordinary 1.0 gain screen, it dramatically enhances the dynamics in the picture,” he says. “Moreover, the ANSI contrast is many times greater, while the black level is deeper.”
The new owner is delighted with the new equipment. “The screen has made a huge difference even in my dark, dedicated home theatre. I would recommend the dnp Supernova screen to everyone who loves watching movies on big screens.”
