Screen Innovations has added a .8-gain material to its Slate line of ambient-lighting-rejecting screen material. The new, black Slate .8 material is available in sizes from 80 to 250 inches and can be used in Screen Innovations’ Zero Edge FLEX, fixed-frame, and motorized screens.
From Screen Innovations
Screen Innovations (SI) has again changed the game by offering the first ambient-light screen that’s massive and black in color–Slate .8. Since its introduction in 2013, Slate has taken the middle market by storm by delivering amazing contrast, clarity, and color reproduction in brightly lit environments. The new, black Slate .8 gain screen (along with Slate 1.2 gain) features SI’s largest, most versatile ambient-light-rejecting screen technology to date, and is available in sizes of up to a 250 inches (diagonal) in Zero Edge FLEX, Fixed, and Motorized screen formats.
Made in the USA, Slate was invented in 2013 as an affordable alternative to Screen Innovations’ legendary, award-winning Black Diamond screen technology. Slate delivers stunning images and a fully immersive entertainment experience by rejecting 65 percent of a room’s ambient light, versus a white or grey screen’s rejection of less than 10 percent.
Slate is made from a flexible, multiparticle optic material that delivers a 55 percent increase in contrast over its nearest competitor, and is designed to blend flawlessly with the décor of any environment.
