A New Curve in Elites Lineup of Projection Screens
CERRITOS, Calif., April 22, 2010 — Elite Screens, Inc. an innovative company that specializes in affordable high quality projection screens, today announced the availability of the Lunette curved frame projection screen.
“There is a need for lot of diversity in screen designs and the Lunette is the latest in Elite’s many product lines.” said David Rodgers, marketing manager, Elite Screens, Inc. “A curved projection screen is essential for both the way it enhances the visual experience and the way eliminates a visual artifact encountered in some widescreen presentations.”
The special curve design directly enhances the aesthetic appeal of the presentation by giving its viewers the sensation of being physically drawn into the film. As an added benefit, the curve design eliminates the “pincushion effect” commonly experienced when projecting in a 2.35:1 (Widescreen) format. Pincushion effect is when the top and bottom center of a widescreen projection appear to droop inward. It occurs because as the length of an aspect ratio increases, the light from the projector must travel a greater distance to the sides of the screen than it does to the center. Elite’s curve design brings the sides of the screen forward to even out the projection footprint resulting in a perfectly formatted image. In addition to this, it creates a sense of immersion that only a curved screen can provide.
Elite’s Lunette measures from 85” to 166” diagonally in 16:9 (HDTV) or 2.35:1 (Widescreen) aspect ratios. Material options include Elite’s CineWhite tension matte white 1.1 gain material that is black backed to eliminate light penetration or the acoustically transparent Acousticpor1080 matte white woven material with black fabric backing material. The frame is 2.36” thick and is surfaced in black velour to avoid light reflection. Product assembly and installation is quick and easy.
