Screen Innovations has officially confirmed new versions of its Zero-G rollable TV. While initially available in white, grey and black, the company has confirmed that it will now also be available in sky blue, forest green and warm grey (beige).
The Zero-G rollable TV concept is different from other projection screens on the market due to the absence of a black mask in between the top of the viewing surface and the case. Instead, the screen is suspended by Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMwPE) cable. It’s that cable that is now available in the additional colours, giving integrators the opportunity to blend the screen into whatever décor they’re working with – whether it’s a wall, window, or art-deco piece.
“We ran Zero-G through an extensive destructive testing cycle, and standard aircraft cable continued to have metal failure due to friction created in each individual stainless strand. We moved to UHMwPE cable because it is 80% lighter than a comparably strong steel cable, far more flexible, longer-lasting, and it maintains its strength and flexibility in all conditions,” says Ryan Paul, director of design at Screen Innovations.
“On top of that, it has the lowest carbon footprint across its service life of any comparable alternative. At SI, it takes the best to make the best.”
The Zero-G rollable TV was always designed to blend into the background and remain discreet, although some installers have previously been unable to achieve that effect, due to the colours available. Screen Innovations hopes that with the new colours, installers will have more flexibility.
“When you match our Zero-G cord colours to the wall, or window behind the screen, it looks as though they completely disappear. It’s incredible,” concludes Skyler Meek, director of marketing for Screen Innovations.
“SI has always been about the complete experience, encompassing both the image on the screen and how the screen is presented in the room. This is another link in the chain that separates SI from all the noise.”
The additional cord colours are now available at no additional charge.
