Rigid screen design supports up to an 8K resolution, frameless edge, and LED backlighting.
Screen Innovations, credited for producing affordable screens that excel in dark and light environments, is now offering the Pure Zero Edge line of screens.
From SI, "Filling a void onscreen and in the marketplace, our new Pure™ projection screen materials feature an enhanced texture that is 9x finer than that of the best screen available. Redefining what white and gray screens can do to enhance the visual entertainment experience, our proprietary Micro Texture delivers absolute perfection when reproducing resolution from 1080P to 8K. The image is razor sharp with perfect color and uniformity, providing a sensory experience unlike any other."
The aluminum-backed rigid screen design aims to offer the kind of appearance that consumers normally seek in bezel-less screen design without compromising image quality. Pure White and Pure Gray now join the company's Black Diamond screens. SI promises that these screen options in a two piece projector set-up yield much larger screen sizes than comparably priced flat panel TVs.
One capability being pushed by Screen Innovations is LED backlighting, which can easily be included in the Pure Zero Edge backing. The idea behind LED backlighting is to complement onscreen content while making it easier to watch bright content in a dark room.

Screen Innovations Introduces Motorized Options for Its Black Diamond Screens

The resulting effect is a screen that can float and disappear at will.
Screen Innovations has pulled together several innovations in order to produce a motorized version of their Black Diamond Screen that both impressive and extravagant. The Black Diamond itself is designed to diffuse ambient light to such a degree that the glaring power of the setting sun cannot separate the viewer from the content on screen. This resilience is coupled with plasma-like black levels.
With the Black Diamond screen created in mind for residential application in living room environments, the goal was also to eliminate any unnecessary or unsightly aspect of the screen. Not only is taping unnecessary, but now, if desired, no edifice of screen is visible when not in use.
The Black Diamond Motorized rests within a ceiling recess until needed, at which point the projector's housing lowers itself to the preset height before unrolling the screen. Ultimately the screen is suspend by two cables, for the absolute minimum non-screen visible out-crop when in use.
Despite containing an elaborate motor system, the whole thing mounts with relative simplicity, and because the screen is hidden when not in use, it is actually cheaper than a wall mounted motorized version.
Prices for the Black Diamond Motorized Screen line range from $5000 - $8000 depending on size and options.

Ceiling hanging the new screen can even create the illusion of a floating picture.
When talking about projectors, people love getting into the nitty gritty details regarding contrast, light output, light sources, 3D capabilities and plenty more. One thing that gets brought up far less often despite its importance is a high-quality screen.
The latest from Screen Innovations is the Black Diamond Zero Edge, which is available in a variety of gains in sizes from 80 inches on up to 142. It's a fine screen by its own rights, but what makes it particularly appealing is the aesthetics of the screen itself.
The Zero Edge is exactly what it sounds like. The only thing surrounding the screen itself is a pencil thin bezel that gives the screen a very slick appearance. "With Zero Edge," says Screen Innovation president Ryan Gustafson, "you can have the same big screen experience with cutting edge aesthetic appeal."
Black Diamond Zero Edge screens will be available in October.
