Screen Innovations (SI) just released their Black Diamond Motorized projection screen, which features a unique motorized design along with ambient light rejection screen technology. 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%. This technology enables Black Diamond screens to be also used in less conventional places, such as by windows, doorways, and other brightly lit areas. Black Diamond Motorized boasts an elegant design for home or business settings; open concept or multi-purpose rooms; board rooms; classrooms; training centers; bars & restaurants; houses of worship, and almost anywhere else a projected image is desired.
