Austin, TX and DENVER, CO (CEDIA EXPO booth #3331) – September 23, 2013 – Screen Innovations (SI), a leading US-based manufacturer of the acclaimed multi-directional ambient light rejecting Black Diamond projection screen technology, announces today that the company will demonstrate the new FlexGlass™ flexible rear-projection screen material to CEDIA EXPO 2013 attendees. Designed to resolve size, space and shipping concerns, as well as to deliver an impressive and unrivaled image quality for a variety of applications, FlexGlass is poised to become a top-rated solution for rear-projection applications.
An innovative new rear-projection screen material, FlexGlass offers all of the benefits of the best rigid optical panels with the added benefit of custom and curve capabilities that can only be achieved with a flexible screen material. Delivering unmatched edge-blend capability, zero hotspot, almost infinite viewing angles and as the ability to be rolled on a 2-foot core to significantly reduce freight and jobsite handling issues, FlexGlass is an ideal choice for multiple-projector, edge blending and short throw projector applications; all of which serves to fulfill a very real need that isn’t currently being met by any other manufacturer in the marketplace.
“FlexGlass™ is an absolutely amazing product,” said Richard Cope, CEO of NanoLumens. “Not only does it give us the uniformity, contrast, and viewing angles that we need, but its ability to be rolled on a 2-foot core allows us to get it into places where other screens simply cannot go.”
“FlexGlass™ offers a very wide viewing angle and good contrast that’s excellent for rear-projected edge-blending because of its very high half-gain angle, low absolute gain and darker tint. It’s semi-rigid, which allows FlexGlass to be rolled in long seamless sheets onto 2-foot cores, doing away with the logistical problems often associated with getting rigid glass or Plexiglas sheets into buildings, upper stories, elevators and through small doorways,” said Rajeev Surati, Chairman, President and Founder of Scalable Display Technologies. “Being semi-rigid also means FlexGlass can be used in curved applications, as one of our customers has done for a large cylindrical cave configuration. Being lightweight, it’s truly portable, which is another plus. In fact, we use FlexGlass for a 20-foot by 6-foot display provided to our partners who use it to show off their large visualizations at trade shows.
“The introduction of FlexGlass™ rear-projection screens and our other Commercial product solutions serves to further establish SI as a force to be reckoned with in the Commercial market,” said Ryan Gustafson, President of Screen Innovations. “It’s my belief that our new Commercial lineup will surpass that of traditional standard-bearers as it delivers more overall value and versatility than what’s currently available. At CEDIA EXPO 2013, SI will have many new and innovative screen solutions designed for a variety of Commercial applications that haven’t been seen anywhere before. We’re excited to show off these ground-breaking technologies and are eager to see how they’ll be used.”
