Visage Screen Allows for Projector Use in Bright Light Environments
Austin, Texas — March 8, 2006 — Screen Innovations, a manufacturer of premium residential and commercial theater projection screens, has received critical acclaim with the release of the Visage front projection screen. The Visage screen’s front projection technology offers a patented filter that allows for viewing in the brightest of environments. The company has also launched a worldwide distribution initiative to bring its breakthrough projection viewing technology to home theaters and commercial environments around the globe.
In addition to the company’s preexisting relationship with Canadian-based distributor Precor, Screen Innovations has entered into distribution agreements with Radionic Distributors in South Africa and Trends4U in Switzerland. This is a major step towards reaching Screen Innovations’ goals to be a worldwide brand in over 15 countries in 2006.
“We new we had a world-wide winner when we rolled out the Visage front projection screen,” said John McCumber, chief executive officer of Screen Innovations. “The Visage screen adds a powerful tool to any Electronic System Contractor’s equipment offering and allows our dealers to better serve their clients needs by being able to specify front projection systems regardless of the amount of ambient light in the client’s home or commercial property. We’re very pleased to offer this product domestically and abroad.”
The Visage screen has garnered positive feedback from the industry press as well as from many of Screen Innovation’s dealers across the country, who are now completing the first installations of this remarkable projection screen product. The Visage has single-handedly created a new market for front projectors in both the residential and commercial arenas. Being able to capture full color and contrast images in brightly lit environments was unheard of just several months ago. But thanks to the patented technology incorporated in Screen Innovation’s Visage screen, projectors can now come out of the dark to find a whole new set of applications that appeal to clients at home or at work.
One of the first residential projects to incorporate the Visage screen was recently installed by Audio Video Integrators of Cedar Falls, South Dakota. Jerry Cook commented: “When our guys installed the Visage screen, it was the best opportunity to see the product in action in a ‘real-world’ application. The screen is doing a phenomenal job and our client was pleased about being now able to use his two-piece projection system during the day.”
Audio Video Integrators installed the Visage screen in the home of Joe Zueger, president of Workplace Technology Center, a commercial custom installation firm which specializes in boardrooms. Zueger was so impressed with the Visage’s performance that he’s in the process of becoming a Screen Innovations dealer. He stated: “The install went very well, and the screen looks really good. It’s certainly usable during the day, as I watched the Target Challenge the first Sunday after the product was installed. I plan to install several of these fantastic Visage screens in our commercial operation–they’re perfect for boardroom settings.”
Screen Innovations’ front projection Visage screen takes projectors out of the dark by enabling a realistic, big-screen film experience in the brightest of environments. Through a patented filter, Visage absorbs incidental light from windows and lights to achieve 10 times the contrast of ordinary screens. As a result, the projected image is virtually unaffected by ambient light. A highly versatile product with extraordinary capability, the Visage sets the stage for unprecedented viewing in any environment, both commercial and residential.
