Screen Innovations Introduces Zero-G Rollable Screen

By |


SI-Zero-G-screen.jpgScreen Innovations has introduced a new rollable screen called the Zero-G. This motorized projection screen rolls into place and is suspended by cables that can be color-matched to your environment, helping to create the appearance of a screen floating in space. The Zero-G can be mated with SI's Slate or Pure screen material and is available in screen sizes up to 160 inches diagonally. The Zero-G will be available to order on September 15.

From Screen Innovations
Screen Innovations (SI) has announced the future of television with Zero-G, a revolutionary new motorized projection screen that, when deployed, literally appears to be floating in midair and rolls out of the way when not in use.

"Zero-G has created a lot of buzz in the industry, and many competitors are already taking pictures of it at our trade shows, trying to figure it out," said Ryan Gustafson, Chief Innovator of SI. "We are pleased to announce that Zero-G--the world's first Rollable TV--will be available to order on day one of CEDIA, September 15."

Levitating
Zero-G was created to allow you to watch the game or your favorite movie on an image that "levitates" in your space on cables that can be color-matched to their surroundings using their proprietary "color matching system" in order to be as unobtrusive as possible. Although, SI says, "this is just a box of crayons."

Don't Re-arrange Your Room
"We have heard from so many people that they had to completely alter the natural orientation of their room because there was only one place they could mount a television." Said Blake Vackar, VP of Sales at SI. "Even motorized screens can sometimes be a visual nuisance with a large 'black-drop' connecting the viewing surface to the case. Since Zero-G is suspended by cables it can be placed anywhere in a room even in front of a bay of windows or art-deco wall.

Simplified Installation
SI has included an array of features that makes Zero-G a simple product to install and set up. Removable PCB, upper lift tubes, and factory pre-programmed bomb-bay doors on its flush model are just a few of these features. SI has also engineered an automatic upper limit setting by using an optical sensor, and will also optionally ship the material tube separate from the case for new construction installations.

A Completely Unique Screen
Vackar continues, "Zero-G is a completely unique screen that does not exist anywhere else and is completely new to the two-piece projection industry."

Screen Material Options:
SI's award-winning, ambient-light-rejecting Slate material or Pure--SI's superior quality white or gray screen.

Screen Sizes:
Up to a maximum of 160 inches diagonally in 16:9 aspect ratio--ideal for large residential or commercial installations.

Shipping:
September 15, 2016
