Screen Innovations (SI) is now offering its new ambient-light screen that’s massive and black in color—Slate .8. The new, black Slate .8 gain screen (along with Slate 1.2 gain) features SI’s largest, most versatile ambient-light-rejecting screen technology to date, and is available in sizes of up to a 250 inches (diagonal) in Zero Edge FLEX, Fixed, and Motorized screen formats.
Made in the USA, Slate was invented in 2013 as an affordable alternative to Screen Innovations’ Black Diamond screen technology. According to SI, Slate delivers stunning images and a fully immersive entertainment experience by rejecting 65% of a room’s ambient light, vs. a white or grey screen’s rejection of less than 10%.
“We will stop at nothing to fulfill the needs of our customers. During testing, Slate .8 caused our beta partners to think beyond the former capabilities of their projectors,” says Ryan Gustafson, chief designer, founder, and president of SI. “Our dealers are installing Slate .8 in well-lit rooms, and experiencing black levels and improved contrast that were unimaginable a year ago. SI employees, motivated by our enthusiastic beta partners’ response, are pushing the boundaries of two-piece projection every day, creating major industry advancements. Slate .8 is the first massive, ambient-light black screen in the world that has created a paradigm shift for large screen projection applications. Innovation is in our DNA.”
Slate is made from a flexible, multi-particle optic material that delivers a 55% increase in contrast over its nearest competitor, and is designed to blend with the décor of any environment.
