Although there are other ambient light rejection screens out there, the dnp brand and line, by our analysis, seems to be the dominating screen for that application — with over 68 percent of the installs. This carries over to both rear-screens and front-screens.
dnp arguably invented that category of screen technology. So, how does an ambient light rejection screen work? Watch this video:
But now that projectors are regularly being integrated with 3000+ ANSI lumens, the lights are being left on — so students, meeting attendees and presenters aren’t in the dark. So, that created the need for the ability to “reject” or throw away (aka: absorb) the room lights. This is EXACTLY what dnp invented.
This company is going to keep getting bigger and bigger. And, I am shocked that someone like Da-Lite, Stewart or Draper hasn’t purchased them. Instead, a screen or two is being OEM’ed from them and branded under their US-counterparts. But look for that to change.
dnp is ripe for an acquisition and I wouldn’t be surprised if Milestone AV or even Peerless-AV hasn’t already made an offer. Plus, dnp is run by some amazing people — something you can’t always say is true in an acquisition. The dnp team is highly technical, focused and understand the value of a screen company sis highly service-based. Screens aren’t one-size-fits-all any longer.
