AUSTIN, TX and DENVER, CO (CEDIA EXPO booth #3331) September 17, 2013 – Screen Innovations (SI), a leading US-based manufacturer of projection screens and associated technologies, announced today that the company’s highly popular and newly-updated Black Diamond™ Motorized screen will be actively displayed for CEDIA EXPO 2013 attendees to witness firsthand. The recent recipient of several new enhancements, Black Diamond Motorized is now available in diagonal screen sizes up to 138” and can also now be configured with either a 16:9 or 2.35:1 aspect ratio with either flush or external mount, allowing integrators to specify the most appropriate screen for the job based on the type of content that will most often be viewed.
Featuring a truly unique motorized design utilizing SI’s proprietary Black Diamond award winning multi-directional ambient light rejection screen technology, Black Diamond Motorized is a sleek and sexy flat panel alternative that delivers stunning images yet disappears when not in use, making it ideal for virtually any environment, aesthetic or application. It has been installed in locations worldwide thus far, serving as a rollable TV that can enter and exit a space with ease. As such, there is no other product like Black Diamond Motorized on the market.
Utilizing one motor, four custom helixes, and a spool of slender aircraft cable, Black Diamond Motorized silently lowers a thin wing containing the rolled Black Diamond screen downward from a recessed ceiling-mounted cassette. The cable-hung wing then stops, and from it, a small tube quickly emerges and lowers itself down to an adjustable, pre-determined image height, leaving only the image space in sight. Because Black Diamond screens do not require masking or any black drop material whatsoever, there is no visible material above, below, or on either side of the screen surface, allowing the images projected on Black Diamond Motorized to appear as though they are suspended in air.
Now available in either 16:9 or 2.35:1 configurations, Black Diamond Motorized screens can be effectively used with ceilings that are up to 11 feet in height. 16:9 versions are available in 80”, 92”, 100”, 106” and 110” diagonal screen sizes, whereas the 2.35:1 versions are available in 110”, 120”, 132” and 138” diagonal sizes. Custom sizes will be made available in the future.
Unlike flat panel TVs, Black Diamond Motorized delivers zero glare and reflection when used in a bright environment, and by virtue of its industry-leading Black Diamond ambient light rejecting screen technology, light scatter is measurably reduced by over 75%. Delivering a next-level entertainment experience while literally disappearing into the room’s existing décor when not in use, Black Diamond Motorized appeals to the senses - and satisfies the needs of - a diverse audience in a variety of Commercial environments. Black Diamond Motorized is the ultimate blend of art + science.
