Screen Innovations (SI) has completely re-engineered its Solo family, now up to 3.5 meters wide in AC, DC and wireless lithium rechargeable options. One of the signature features of SI’s new Solo 2 motorized cassette is its decorator-friendly design; with cassette sizes starting at 90 millimeters in-depth and height, the Solo 2 is 17% smaller than the original version.
Solo 2 employs a longer-lasting rechargeable lithium-powered motor. This battery can last up to two years on a single charge and, when the Solo 2 batteries do need to be recharged, there’s no need to pull out a ladder to reach and disassemble the motor casing. SI’s patent-pending magnetic charging port simplifies the process. A charging cord attaches to the Solo 2 charging port magnetically; users simply extend a telescoping pole to reach the port and the magnetic clips on instantly. In addition to the rechargeable motor, a low-voltage, 24-volt motor is available, which also provides flexibility of integration and installation. An AC power option is a newly available option with wireless or hardwired control.
The Solo 2 also accommodates a wide variety of screen materials, such as SI’s popular ambient light rejecting Slate material, highly refined white and gray materials and options rated for 8K projection. Screen Innovations says Solo 2 is the only motorized screen assembly that supports short-throw projection materials.
SI is here.
