In early 2008, after years of research and development, Ryan Gustafson introduced a never before seen technology to the two-piece projection industry called Black Diamond®. Little did he know that he would literally be changing the entire landscape of projection for the first time in over 100 years. Black Diamond® was created because of the inherent challenged associated with projecting in a bright enfironment, i.e. losing all your contrast. In it's initial phase, Black Diamond® produced in only a .8 gain material and with it's ambient light rejection and black color, customers could now enjoy 900% greater contrast over matte-white and literally "step out of the darkroom."

Seeing the massive response to the initial introduction of Black Diamond® in 2008, we set out to push the limits of this technology and introduced a 1.4 gain version in 2009. Building on the greatness of .8, Black Diamond® 1.4 exploded and again changed the industry forever.

We developed Zero Edge® (originally with Black Diamond) to make projection sexy, and did so one week before CEDIA. We added LED lights on the back of the screen before shipping to the show and it was recieved with mixed emotions. Some loved it and a few said it would never work. Within two years Zero Edge is now the industry standard and many companies such as Stewart Filmscreen, Vutec, Dalite, Draper, Elite Screen, and many others have attempted to copy the SI Zero Edge® design and LED backlighting.

After radically changing the landscape of the two-piece fixed projection screen industry, we set our sights on motorized. We knew that in order to make some serious waves and solve major two-piece projection challenges, something drastic had to be created. Five years of research and development produced the worlds first (and only) "rollable television", Black Diamond® Motorized. BDM levitates on aircraft cables allowing customer to fly their projection screen in front of windows in really bright rooms without obstructing views.

Setting our sights on the rear-projection industry, we developed FlexGlass®, the best edge-blending and short-throw capable rear-projection screen ever invented. FlexGlass® was immediately adopted by Scalable and Mersive as the bar-none "best rear-projection screen technology ever to hit the market." Not only is it available in incredible large sizes (7.5' X 99') but it's rollable enabling a curved display like nothing ever seen before.

BDF is literally applied as a window tint to any window allowing the rear-projection of any content while retaining Black Diamond's® incredible ambient light rejection qualities. Great for retail spaces or window advertisements, BDF brings a whole new meaning to two-piece projection.
