Vutec Offers Retracta-Vu Theater, a Complete Cabinet-Based Front Screen Theater; Unit features NEC WT610 Projector

POMPANO BEACH, Fla.–Feb. 23, 2005–Vutec Corporation, the world technology leader in video projection screens launched Retracta-Vu(a) Theater, a motorized, completely retractable and disappearing home theater that houses a screen, an NEC WT610 projector, audio equipment and accessories.

The projection screen includes Vutec’s VuFlex Pro material, and features patented Retracta-Vu technology that causes the screen to ascend and descend into a cabinet eight feet long, 32 inches high and 25 inches wide. The system can interface with most standard IR or RF controls.

The display uses NEC’s patented lensless mirror design to attain the shortest throw distance of any front projector. The WT610 features a 3500:1 contrast ratio for outstanding image quality with deep black detail and produces 2000 ANSI lumens.

“The Vutec cabinet theater provides an excellent venue for the WT610 projector,” said Keith Yanke, product manager, NEC Visual Systems Division. “This unique home entertainment unit combines the newest technologies of each company to bring both convenience and viewing excellence to the home theater enthusiast.”

The NEC WT610 display mounts into a projector drawer in the Retracta-Vu Theater below the 92 diagonal inches screen that automatically opens and closes as the screen ascends and descends.

“All components completely disappear into beautiful cabinetry,” said Howard L. Sinkoff, president of Vutec Corporation. “This is a designer or homeowners’ dream. The theater will retract into a visually appealing cabinet that will be offered in a selection of finishes.”

Vutec Corporation and NEC will jointly market the custom made Retracta-Vu Theater through their networks of authorized dealers. The dealers will package the components, including audio, video and electronic accessories that all fit into the cabinet compartments.

“This theater setup meets the needs of those who wish to have a home theater, don’t have a dedicated room but want the theater atmosphere,” added Sinkoff.
