Austin, TX — July 21, 2016 — Screen Innovations (SI), the innovators who introduced Black Diamond®, the first ever ambient light screen that revolutionized the video projection screen industry, has announced the introduction of Tiles a new screen tiling system that redefines the video wall category. Built with the award-winning Black Diamond® screen technology, Tiles can go as large as 288” W by 162” H (330” diagonal), is 4K/8K+ rated and UHD/HDR ready.
“Black Diamond® has been touted as the best screen that money can buy, however it comes with limitations,” says Skyler Meek, Director of Marketing for SI. Because of the extreme engineering required to manufacturer the optical qualities in the material, it is limited in height. To overcome this, SI has created a system that uses smaller, rigid tiles precision-bonded together in order to create one larger screen.”
To build a Black Diamond® video wall, panels are placed next to each other with a nearly invisible seam and stacked in a running-bond pattern for superior strength. This is achieved by SI’s all-new computer controlled cutting system which is capable of extremely exact specifications. This attention to detail is what ensures that customers receive the best possible accuracy, quality, and longevity out of their tile screen.
To ensure that the installation process is time-efficient and as simple as possible, SI has designed a system that is 75% pre-fabricated, each panel then “snaps” into place with an attachment system that utilizes neodymium magnets. This installation process allows integrators to assemble a video wall of any size with ease minimizing hassle on the job. All panels are precision-cut and stocked in three sizes: 45”, 50” and 55” for 16:9 and 43”, 48”, and 53” for 16:10.
Skyler Meek continues, “What’s so revolutionary about this system, is that there is now a solution for a massive “video wall” type screen without any of the headache, installation issues, or budget concerns that give integrators nightmares. Tiles require only one light source, is a breeze to install, and maintenance-free (except for the occasional gentle dusting.) And it’s future-proofed with 8K+ resolution rating and UHD/HDR capability.”
“Tiles with Black Diamond® are the perfect solution for commercial installations and high traffic areas such as digital signage, restaurants, educational facilities, stadiums, and just about any location where bright, detailed images are critical.”
