CEDIA Expo 2009 Atlanta - Screen Research introduced at CEDIA Expo its new MultiPix range of multilayer projection screen fabrics.
Three new fabrics use Screen Research's proprietary multilayer technology to offer a positive gain performance between 1.3 and 1.5 and "excellent" light rejection for use in a range of ambient light conditions, the company said.
The line consists of the MultiPix ultra-contrast white 1.3, ultra-contrast white 1.5, and ultra-contrast gray 1.3. Screen Research (booth 1558) said its multilayer technology optimizes performance. In contrast to conventional painted gain coatings, which the company described as "a fragile surface treatment," the multilayer technology results from a scientifically controlled manufacturing process that ensures a homogenous structure that is durable, flexible and consistent in terms of performance and structural integrity, the company said.
The MultiPix ultra-contrast gray 1.3 offers what the company called unparalleled black-level contrast performance. Its light-rejection characteristics allow use in environments with high ambient light levels.
MultiPix ultra-contrast white 1.3 and 1.5 are best used for high gain applications, maximizing the performance of lower-powered projectors.
The MultiPix range of screen fabrics are currently shipping.
