Seymour-Screen Excellence Introduces New Enlightor-Neo

Seymour-Screen claims its new Enlightor-Neo is the smoothest acoustically transparent film screen that has a thin-fabric pattern so finely-woven that it’s nearly impossible to detect, even when standing inches away.  A step-up from the company’s Enlightor-4K A.T. screen, Neo is more matte, higher gain and delivers improved acoustic attenuation.

For a decade now, Seymour-Screen Excellence’s Enlightor-4K A.T. surface claims to be reference choice among top CEDIA integrators and movie / TV post production facilities for its class-leading sonic and visual qualities.

Enlightor-Neo takes acoustical transparency film screen technology to another level as its surface is comprised of a newly-woven pattern which contributes to improved audio and video performance. Like Enlightor-4K, Enlightor-Neo is rated for 4K and higher resolutions and delivers enhanced dynamic range performance (HDR).

Enlightor-Neo boasts a more matte finish (1.0 gain) and a slightly brighter look than Enlightor4K (.9).  It also has more “stretch” to it, meaning it can be pulled tauter then other A.T. surfaces on the market, making it ideal for difficult custom applications such as motorized retractable applications.

Seymour-Screen Excellence offers a wide variety of fixed-frame designs including magnetic or motorized (single, two- and four-way) masking options, frameless designs and a motorized retractable option.  All the company’s products are manufactured in Iowa and shipped within five to seven business days from receipt of purchase order, with elaborate motorized designs shipped within two to three weeks.

The company’s different Enlightor Series of A.T. film screen surfaces are:

  • Neo (4K, 1.0 gain, ideal for home theater and studio, no minimal seating distance required)
  • 4K (.9 gain, no minimal seating distance required, ideal for home and production)
  • Bright (1.1 gain, optimized for larger home theaters and film production)
  • PRO (.9 gain, optimized for film production, commercial cinemas)
