Austin, TX—October 20, 2918—SI has announced that its popular ambient-light-rejecting Short Throw (ST) screen material is now available on Solo Pro. The Solo family of screens are highly customizable motorized screens that can be carried and installed in 5-minutes by a single person.
The combination of Solo Pro with SI’s ALR Short Throw material, overcomes a litany of barriers that have been traditionally associated with two-piece projection. With Solo’s lithium-rechargeable and low-voltage options, electricians are no longer required, enabling two-piece projection nearly anywhere.
Short Throw, which uses a microscopic lenticular optical technology (think window blinds), is best suited for ultra-short throw projection applications where the projector is located directly below the screen at throw ratios as close as 0.1 times the image width. This technology can successfully reproduce 8k resolution while rejecting up to 90% of the ambient-light in the room.
“The extraordinary Short Throw screen material is very difficult to work with due to its optical qualities. It took almost two years to perfect a method to manipulate it to function in a motorized system. Thankfully, SI has the manufacturing capability to not only develop this methodology, but we also have the capacity to create repeatable results to scale for production.” Said Tom Nugent, SI’s Chief of Material Technology.
The cassette housing that Solo Pro ST is available in 12 designer colors.
Available sizes: Up to 106”
Starting retail price: $4500
This screen was first unveiled at the custom integration show, CEDIA 2018 in San Diego and SI is now accepting orders to begin shipping in October.
