Screen Innovations (SI) has enlarged the Black Diamond ambient-light-rejecting screen for home theater. The largest Black Diamond screens to date feature 1.4 gain in new sizes: 16:9 120” and 2.35:1 150”, in Fixed and Zero Edge formats.
Black Diamond, which claims to offer the only vertical and horizontal ambient-light-rejecting screen, has a multi layer optic that reflects only the light generated by the projector resulting in a 900% boost in contrast. Additionally, Black Diamond is the only screen that greatly benefits dark environments by reducing light scatter by over 75%. The result is the richest, sharpest image, with the best blacks now available from a screen.
Ryan Gustafson, President of Screen Innovations, boldly announced, “At SI, we believe innovation means that a design is never complete, just more perfect with each iteration. He continued, “We are excited to announce that plans are underway to invest in and expand our production capability to better support today’s large display needs. Our customers asked, and we delivered.”
All Black Diamond screens feature active 3D capabilities and are future-proofed and 4K ready. Screen sizes start at 80” fixed, curved, motorized, and popular Zero Edge formats.
Price and Availability
The larger Black Diamond screens will be available from May 2014, starting at $2,199.
