WhiteBoard Screen Eliminates Ambient Light Control in Classrooms and Boardrooms
CERRITOS, Calif., June 9, 2009 — Elite Screens, Inc. an innovative company that specializes in affordable high quality projector screens, today announced that its WhiteBoard Screen is now in inventory and available for immediate delivery.
Elite’s WhiteBoard Screen is an innovative product that merges a premium grade ultra-high gain reflective material with a dry erase whiteboard for classroom and boardroom presentations in environments with bright ambient light. Speaking points may be emphasized more easily while teaching and presenting; students can learn more effectively because users write directly on the board while a lesson, presentation or video is projected. When the projector is stored away, the WhiteBoard is available for traditional uses.
“We combine state of the art materials with specialized layers that maximize light reflectivity with a dry-erase surface and the results are incredible,” said David Rodgers, marketing manager, Elite Screens, Inc. “The image rivals a flat panel display in terms of brightness and clarity, and an instructor or presenter can write over it at the same time.”
Elite’s WhiteBoard users save space and money because the screen combines both a projection screen and a classroom writing board in one, eliminating the need for two separate products. Just like any educational whiteboard, Starbright4 material is surfaced in a dust resistant dry erase surface. To make selection easier, the WhiteBoard Screen comes in a standard class writing board format as well as 4:3 and 16:9 projection screen aspect ratios with sizes ranging from 60 to 96 inches.
Using Elite’s Starbright4 projection material with a brightness four times greater than a standard matte white projection surface, its new WhiteBoard Screen uses a multi-layered design that concentrates reflected light to create a bright image while its following layers diffuse the intensity to control hot-spotting, which can be difficult in all high gain materials. It also eliminates the wash-out effect by filtering out ambient light to provide a clear high-contrast picture. These layers rest on a primed sheet of galvanized steel for total flatness and magnetic attraction, which is useful when writing references on the screen during a lecture.
“Now teachers and audience members don’t have to turn the lights off to see the projection screen,” added Rodgers. “Plus, it is a lot easier to take notes since you are not sitting in the dark during the presentation.”
