Indianapolis - DNP is displaying at CEDIA Expo its Supernova screen, which it is calling "the world's first front projection screen designed for brightly lit environments."
The Supernova boasts an "active optical system" made up of seven material layers that DNP said doubles the image brightness and increases contrast by up to seven times. Layers include an optical lens film to reduce the impact of ambient light, an advanced reflection layer for half-gain angles up to +/- 85 degrees, a black color layer for improved color reproduction, and a hard surface coating for screen scratch-resistance and a shimmer-free image.
The series is made up of three types of optical screens -- fixed, retractable and portable -- available in a variety of finishes, formats and sizes.
Supernova screens feature an active high-contrast filter that reflects the projected image while effectively absorbing available light from other angles. DNP said this technology means the screen is virtually unaffected by diffused ambient light.
DNP is in booth 5545.
