High End Projection Screens

Black Diamond High End Projection Screens

Screen Innovations is proud to offer Black Diamond high end projection screens. Black Diamond represents the acme of screen technology, making clear, crisp, color-saturated projection possible under conditions that were simply unworkable before.

Black Diamond Represents the Ultimate in High End Projection Screens

Black Diamond projection screens have been engineered to absorb both ambient light and light scatter from the projector. In a bright room, even with lights on, the Black Diamond screen material can absorb ambient light, making it possible to obtain a crisp, dimensional image in applications where only a flat-screen HDTV would work before. In a dark room, the Black Diamond screen can absorb more than 75 percent of the light scatter that would otherwise be reflected back onto the screen, washing out the image. This ability to absorb light was accomplished when Screen Innovations developed a way to produce screens with multiple optical laminations. The advanced reflective layer in Black Diamond has a resolution optimized for 1080p HD projectors. This focuses more projected light to the viewer and wastes less on scatter. The result is dramatically enhanced contrast, color saturation and depth of field, as well as the blackest blacks and the whitest whites. Black Diamond is available in 1.4 and 0.8 gains, and in Five aspect ratios. For screens that are 2.40:1, the maximum seamless screen size is 142", measured diagonally. A screen with a 16:9 ratio can be 113", and a 4:3 screen can be up to 93".

Our Reference series of screens represents the ultimate in innovative technology, allowing you to experience your home theater in ways that simply were not possible until now.

Reference Motorized HDTV Projector Screens

Our Reference motorized screens are state of the art. Let’s start with the flush mount chassis. Throughout the industry, if you want flush mount, you need to buy a separate chassis. Not so with the Performance screen, which includes flush mount plates at no extra cost. The low-voltage motor is quiet, efficient and economical, not only in terms of the money you’ll save on your electric bill, but also because it eliminates the need for costly rewiring. Flexibility is optimized, too, with controls that can be mounted either on your equipment rack or on the unit itself. Screen material is available in Solar, Gamma or Lunar HD, and also in Gamma and Lunar Maestro HD, which are specifically designed for optimum sound clarity. Screens can be selected in 16:9, 16:10, 2.40:1 or 4:3 ratios, with custom sizes ranging from 77” to 133”. Installation is easy, using our “Super Flat” screen tensioning system to ensure a perfectly flat screen with no distortion. The screen can be mounted flush in-ceiling, external wall mount or on-ceiling. The standard black drop is 24”, but it can be customized up to six feet to accommodate vaulted or cathedral ceilings. The “Easy Set” upper and lower limit adjustments ensure that it is perfectly positioned every time. In every aspect, from ease of installation to quality of materials, the Reference series sets the standard.

HDTV Projection Screen

The Best HDTV Projection Screen

When you’ve invested in a top-quality HDTV system, you’ll want to make the most of that investment with the best HDTV projection screen. Most projection screens on the market today utilize a texture that results in a fuzzy, soft image that negates the quality of your projector. At Screen Innovations, we have developed a micro-embossing technique that provides the clearest, sharpest image and makes the most of your projector’s capabilities. This texture is available on our Gamma, Solar and Lunar HD screens, and Gamma and Lunar Maestro HD options, which have been specially developed for sound clarity as well. These screen materials are available in the Performance and Reference series.

Black Diamond: The Elite HDTV Projection Screen

The jewel in our crown is the Black Diamond, the most advanced screen material on the market. Available in Reference series fixed screens, the Black Diamond absorbs ambient light to increase projection contrast by over 300 percent, allowing clear, sharp images and vivid color saturation even when viewing in a lighted room. In a dark environment, the Black Diamond screen also absorbs more than 75 percent of the light scatter from the projector, which otherwise would be reflected back on to the screen, resulting in a washed-out image. This means that you can now achieve projection system results that equal a flat-panel HDTV screen. Black Diamond screens are available in 0.8 and 1.4 gains. The maximum seamless size for the 2.40:1 ratio is 142", measured diagonally. A 16:9 screen can be113" and a 4:3 ratio allows for 93". Screen Innovations has also patented a unique bungee attachment system, which allows one person to install the screen quickly and easily, and ensures that every screen is completely uniform. Like all our products, our Black Diamond screens are protected by a lifetime replacement policy.

Motorized Projection Screens

Motorized Projection Screens Are a Great Choice for Rooms With Limited Wall Space

You essentially have two options when it comes to projection screens. Fixed screens are installed fully extended and do not move. Your other option is a screen that retracts either manually or motorized. The choice that's best for you depends on what the screen is for and where it will be installed. While a fixed screen is an attractive addition to a home theater or a sports bar, not everyone has the luxury of having enough dedicated wall space to install a fixed screen. For those who need a projector screen that can be raised and lowered, in a classroom or conference room, for example, where wall space is also needed for white boards or other fixed displays, movable screens are a practical solution. Movable screens are available in manual and motorized versions. A manual screen can be either pull up or pull down and can be adjusted by hand to the exact size needed. Screen Innovations' Reference series motorized screens utilize low voltage motors that do not require a certified electrician to wire for power. They also reduce energy use. The motion of the screen can be controlled with a wall switch or projector screen controls may be mounted remotely, to control via IR control, i.e. remote. Our screens also come with the necessary hardware to install them flush or external for maximum flexibility. Décor plates also allow a truly attractive fixture that easily integrates into the room's design.

SI’s Black Diamond Screens – This changes everything

Bob Gatton's Tech Talk WWW.HGTVPRO.COM Traditional home theaters can be a lot of fun. Turn on the system, turn off the lights and start the movie. Being in a dark room, in my opinion, is part of the movie experience. But I don't like watching sports and other programming in a bat cave. Now you don't have to. SI recently launched their Black Diamond screens. With these screens you can use a front projector and still have some lights on. With a normal screen, if you turn up the lights, the picture is washed out and unwatchable. SI's Black Diamond screens, combined with projectors that are both rapidly improving and decreasing in price, is a game changer. You can have a huge, high quality picture in a cave... or in a room with lights, as shown below. This was, in my opinion, the most impressive product at the CEDIA Expo last week. I'm planning to get my hands on an SI Black Diamond screen and give it a test drive. After I do, I'll report back with more details.
