New Retractable Version of Award-Winning Supernova Screen Now Available; ISF-Certified
COSTA MESA, CA — April 25, 2007 — dnp, the world’s leading supplier of optical projection screen technology has recently revolutionized the industry with the Supernova Screen, the first-ever optical front projection screen that allows viewing in brightly lit environments. The new and groundbreaking Supernova Flex Screen is a retractable, motorized version that blends effortlessly into any environment and disappears into a stylish wall mounted enclosure when not in use. Setting new standards in front projection, the Supernova Flex Screen delivers the ultimate widescreen experience outside of the confines of a traditional dark room.
Like the fixed Supernova One Screen, the Supernova Flex Screen delivers up to ten times higher contrast than standard front screens. And since the entire screen is retractable, it combines the outstanding Supernova image quality with a discreet and stylish presence perfect for viewing in any setting. The technology used to develop Supernova is based on a revolutionary high-contrast filter that allows the projected image to be reflected from the screen, effectively absorbing incident light from other angles such as windows and room lighting. As a result, the screen is virtually unaffected by ambient light.
“The Supernova Flex Screen offers the best of both worlds,” stated Manfred Freiberger, senior account manager for dnp USA. “It provides the superior image quality of optical rear projection with front screens’ minimal space requirements and ease of installation.”
dnp’s Supernova Flex Screen opens vast new opportunities for display solutions in environments with ambient light such as living rooms, boardrooms, and retail applications. At the push of a button, a fast motor allows the screen to drop down and retract into its elegant housing. The cover of the wall mounted enclosure is removable and replaceable, and offered in a variety of beautiful options including black, white, silver-grey aluminum, blond maple and cherry wood. The cover is also available in a special stainable surface that can be painted to match any decor.
Among the finest screens in the market, the dnp Supernova Flex Screen material has recently been certified by the Imaging Science Foundation (ISF) for its outstanding image quality. This means the product exceeds the high-standard benchmarks that define the best video performance available for consumers. With a half gain of 82 degrees, the widest in the industry, this screen provides full 180 degrees of viewing. The Supernova Flex Screen combines neutral color reproduction and uniform image quality with extremely high contrast ratios and superior black levels.
Compatible with all standard projectors, the dnp Supernova Flex Screen is now available in 4:3, 16:9 and Cinemascope formats in sizes up to 100″. dnp’s Supernova Screens provide an unparalleled widescreen viewing experience surpassing that of a flat panel display.
