Garden Grove, Calif., August 26, 2013 — Elite Prime Vision, the dedicated Custom Installer division of Elite Screens Inc., today announced the development of its PolarStar ambient light-rejecting projection screen with 3D polarization.
“Although 3D home theater is fun once in a while, customers want a versatile solution that gives stunning picture quality the other 99% of the time.” said David Rodgers, marketing manager, Elite Screens, Inc. “Current trends show that home theater enthusiasts like 3D but don’t want to be stuck with it 24/7. That is why we developed an angular reflective material that is polarized for 3D but is equally serviceable as a 2D ambient light-rejecting material so that our customers get exactly what they want in a projection screen, when they want it.”
The PolarStar is EPV’s latest edition to its line of ambient light-rejecting projection screens.
Its uses Elite’s Airbright™ 5D material for superb brightness and contrast through a combination of its highly reflective surface coated by a gray diffusion layer. This angular-reflective screen material has a brightness of 1.8 gain and a 120 º wide viewing angle making it ideal for home cinema and commercial applications alike. The material is an unsupported PVC (tension) multi-layer screen fabric with enhanced flatness and durability. The Silver-white protective surface coating is a reflective compound that is polarized to allow its use in active or passive 3D presentations while maintaining 92% polarization levels. It is designed to enhance a higher contrast ratio while playing in high definition video modes such as 4K, 1080P, 720P, WXGA and XGA formats.
It is a perfect companion with ceiling mounted projectors and alternating 3D projection systems. It utilizes the same 3.5” framework seen on the Peregrine series of fixed-frame projection screens. This makes it an easy-to-assemble product with sliding wall brackets to ensure a perfectly centered installation, every time.
