Da-Lite Expands Home Theater Offering with New Multi Format Imager Masking System

Press Release  |  Sep 17, 2010
WARSAW, IN – September 17, 2010 – Da-Lite Screen Company introduces a new addition to its comprehensive line of home theater projection screen options with the launch of the Multi Format Imager masking system. In a response to the home theater market demand for screens that can display optional format choices while maintaining a constant height, Da-Lite’s new Multi Format Imager allows for sizes up to 16’ wide.

With the masking retracted, the native aspect ratio of the Multi Format Imager is Cinemascope (2.35:1). With masking, you can achieve Letterbox (1.85:1), HDTV (1.78:1) and NTSC Video (1.33:1) formats. Da-Lite’s Multi Format Imager is standard with Pro-Trim finish, which is a fabric frame covering that aesthetically enhances the appearance of the installation while absorbing light that surrounds the viewing area.

“Da-Lite offers both home owners and home theater dealers a comprehensive line of home theater projection screens and masking system options,” stated Dan Drook, DaLite Vice President of Home Theater Sales. “The new Multi Format Imager masking system can also be combined with our innovative JKP Affinity Screen series material featuring the highest uniformity in the industry.”

Pair the Multi Format Imager with Da-Lite’s Cinema Contour, Da-Snap or Imager fixed frame projection screens that are available in 13 fabric choices in either front or rear projection styles. Combined with the Multi Format Imager masking system, you can specify a Da-Lite home theater projection screen that’s the perfect Da-Lite home theater solution and give your customers the format they desire
