Screen Innovations (SI) just announced that the company’s Black Diamond Motorized screen has received 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 a flush or external mount.
Featuring a motorized design utilizing SI’s proprietary Black Diamond multi-directional ambient light rejection screen technology, Black Diamond Motorized disappears when not in use, making it suitable for many environments.
Utilizing one motor, four custom helixes, and a spool of slender aircraft cable, Black Diamond Motorized 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 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.
