Austin, TX – May 1, 2013 – Screen Innovations (SI), a leading US-based manufacturer of projection screens and associated technologies, today announces the addition of two (2) new reference quality screen material options to the Company’s acclaimed Zero Edge line of projection screens. Aptly named, Pure™ White is a 1.3 gain screen, Pure™ Gray is a .8 gain screen, and both feature SI’s sleek and stylish Zero Edge bezel.
Touted by integrators as being “the coolest, most forward-thinking solution to hit the Residential and Commercial entertainment space since the flat panel TV,” Pure™ Zero Edge redefines what white and gray projection screens can do to enhance the visual entertainment experience.
Filling a void onscreen and in the marketplace, Pure White and Pure Gray Zero Edge projection screens feature SI’s proprietary Micro Texture that is nine (9) times finer and smoother than that of the best screen material available on the market today. Capable of reproducing perfect resolution from 1080P to 8K and beyond, Pure delivers image quality that is razor sharp with perfect color and uniformity that provides a sensory experience unlike any other.
“Resolving the most common complaints associated with white and gray projection screens, Pure™ reproduces projected images brilliantly without any measurable color shift or visible texture,” stated Ryan Gustafson, president and founder of Screen Innovations. “It redefines the middle market by providing the coolest, most impressive and cost effective solution for video purists, enthusiasts and everyday viewers alike.”
Designed to be quickly and easily installed, Pure Zero Edge screens do not require any additional assembly once unpacked. Mounting options include on-wall or flown from the ceiling by slender cables. New optional LED Lighting is built in to the frame and now incorporates six (6) custom preferences and 256,000 colors, including 6500 kelvin white. This unique feature set provides an incredibly sleek appearance and immersive entertainment experience that can’t be achieved with any other screen.
Available in large-format projection screen sizes up to 120” in 16:9 and up to 150” in 2.35:1, the Zero Edge line now includes Pure White 1.3 gain, Pure Gray .85 gain, Black Diamond 2.7 gain, Black Diamond 1.4 gain or Black Diamond .8 gain screen materials. Prices start at $1599 MSRP and are based on configuration.

Our Solar 4K and Black Diamond screens were recently selected for use by Chris Heinonen of Secrets of Home Theater and Hifi as part of his “Anamorphic Lenses and Projection Screens: Affordable?” review. Is an affordable projection screen, projector and anamorphic lens setup possible? Absolutely. Read on…
Introduction to the Affordable Anamorphic Lens System
When I finally took the plunge into a projection setup in my home theater, the hardest decision I had to make was what aspect ratio to get for my screen. Everything that came after that, from the screen material to the projector, was dependent on that decision. For most people it is simple and they go with a standard 1.78:1, or 16:9, ratio for their screen, as that is the HDTV standard. Years of going to CEDIA and seeing these setups with massive anamorphic screens where cinemascope films fill the whole screen had led me to go down that road. Most films that I watched seemed to be 2.35:1 or greater, and I didn’t want the possibility of black bars to distract me.
All of the anamorphic setups at CEDIA are often incredibly expensive. They use automated masking screens from Stewart that can cost up to $50,000 alone, lenses from Panamorph and ISCO that also approach $10,000, and expensive projectors to drive those screens. None of this was close to falling inside my budget. Recently JVC and others had started to demo their projectors with lens memory on a Screen Innovations Black Diamond screen, which allowed them to fill the full 2.40:1 area of the screen automatically, but also hide the sides of the screen when watching 16:9 content. These worked well, but lens memory from the projectors can often be hard to setup, misalign, and requires a specific throw distance.
This year Panamorph announced their least expensive anamorphic lens, the CineVista. Now for $1,200 you can have an anamorphic lens for your system, and so the pieces for an affordable system had fallen into place. For this review I used a 122″, 2.40 Black Diamond 1.4 screen, the Panamorph CineVista lens, and the Sony VPL-HW50ES projector that won our award for the Best Projector of 2012. Would I finally be able to assemble the anamorphic system I wanted, and keep both kidneys?

New Black Diamond Motorized Projection Screen is Now Shipping Worldwide
Innovative Motorized Screen Technology is Easy to Install and Delivers Impressive Image Quality While Preserving Existing Room Aesthetics
Austin, TX – March 25, 2013 – Screen Innovations (SI), a leading US-based manufacturer of projection screens and associated technologies, announced today that the much-anticipated Black Diamond Motorized projection screen is now shipping to integrators and end users worldwide.
Black Diamond™ Motorized
Featuring a brand new and truly unique motorized design utilizing SI’s award-winning Black Diamond 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 or application.
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.
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 rejection 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 either residential or commercial environments. Black Diamond Motorized is the ultimate blend of art + science.
Those interested in learning how Black Diamond Motorized solves complex installation challenges and delivers next-level entertainment experiences for a wide range of applications are encouraged to visit www.screeninnovations.com or call (512) 832-6939.

This unique children’s playroom won Best Media Room/Family Room honors in the Electronic House 2012 Home of the Year honors. It features a JVC projector, 133″ SI Reference Motorized projection screen and Triad speakers, which transform the playspace into a rockin’ media room.
“This is truly a dual-purpose room that operates equally well as a playroom and a powerful and compelling movie theater,” says Bryant Moore, president of custom electronics design and installation firm Moore Audio Design in Matthews, N.C. For true cinematic viewing, an anamorphic lens slides in front of the projector to display CinemaScope movies in the ultra-wide format.
With the screen retracted, the playspace looks like this:
