Screen Innovations has announced what it calls the ‘first ambient-light screen that’s massive and black in colour’, the Slate .8.
The Slate range was first introduced in 2013, with the company claiming to have ‘taken the middle market by storm’.
The newest addition to the range, the black Slate .8, is Screen Innovation’s largest and most versatile ambient-light-rejecting screen technology to date.
Installers will be able to get the screen in sizes up to 250” in Zero Edge FLEX, fixed and motorised screen formats.
The latest product in the Slate range was once again made in the USA, like many of the company’s other offerings.
Screen Innovation’s promises that its ‘Black Diamond’ screen technology delivers a ‘fully immersive entertainment experience by rejecting 65% of a room’s ambient light vs a white or 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,” says 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. Innovation is in our DNA.”
The Slate range is made from a flexible, multi-particle optic material which Screen Innovations claims delivers ‘a 55% increase in contrast over its nearest competitor and is designed to blend flawlessly with the décor of any environment’.
