Screen Innovations Ships Black Diamond Projection Screens
Screen Innovations announces that it will feature its new award-winning Black Diamond™ projector screen at the 2008 CEDIA Expo. Now shipping, Black Diamond, winner of a “Best of Demo Alley” award during the Electronic House Expo Spring 2008 trade show, has also recently been named a 2008 CEDIA Manufacturer’s Excellence Awards Finalist.
“The exclusive technologies in our Black Diamond projector screen represent a breakthrough in picture quality for home theater applications,” explained Aaron Reilly, Screen Innovations CTO. “Black Diamond enhances projector performance by creating the ultimate contrast (blacker blacks, whiter whites) and color accuracy (with added vibrant color delivery) in both ‘dark’ and ‘bright’ environments.”
Screen Innovation’s new exclusive technology for Black Diamond that will change the home theater landscape delivers dramatically higher picture quality at sharply competitive prices. Black Diamond simultaneously enhances contrast, color saturation, depth of field, and video immersion in both bright and dark environments. This represents a quantum leap forward in combined performance and versatility.
“Since Black Diamond was launched this past spring, we have already garnered a tremendous amount of interest from dealers, installers, and consumers,” added Reilly. “When demonstrated, customers can’t believe the screen’s contrast in both dark and bright rooms…they had never seen anything like it before. Black Diamond is perfect for any home theater application. No more does the customer have to worry about their projector’s contrast in order to enjoy industry leading high quality video projector screen performance.”
Black Diamond features include:
Dark Environment; dramatically reduces light scatter, increasing viewer immersion and contrast by minimizing the room washout that exists with standard front projection screens.
- eliminates the need for masking by creating deep black bars when used with
2.35:1 format projection screens
Bright Environment; allows for viewer use in brighter environments versus standard screen surfaces. For use in applications such as lighted living rooms, game rooms, and theater rooms
Truly black native screen material color; higher aesthetic appeal when the projector is off - the screen material looks like a flat panel display
