Most manual screens can only look at 5-7 positions which are spaced 5”-6” apart, furthermore, manual screens when released will retract very quickly into the housing causing “slamming” sound.
Our exclusive patented CSR buffer slows the projection screens return into the housing allowing for less wear and tear on the screen material and hardware. The CSR’s self-locking mechanism with advanced bearing design will allow the screen to be set in just about any position by simply holding the screen for 1-2 seconds at the position that you want the screen to stop to.
Black Borders for Enhanced Contrast
It seems like a small feature to have black borders around the viewing area, but it should not be underestimated. Having black borders improve the perceived brightness and contrast of a projected image by surrounding the projected images in black. This adds both punch and brightness.
There are many manufactures of screens today that just use a black metal bar to create the black border on the bottom of the screen. We believe this is completely unacceptable. The reason why the bottom black border is so important is:
- It is extremely difficult to have the projected image fit perfectly within the viewing area. So a bit of stray light will hit the black border. The border absorbs the light so that contrast and brightness is enhanced
- The metal bars used by other manufactures are very small and narrow. This creates an unbalanced image as the top borders are bigger than the bottom border
- The metal bars typically are more reflective than an actual black border which means that the light will reflect off the metal bar, thus decreasing the perceived brightness and contrast
Triple-Layered, Fiberglass-Enforced Screen Material
The Premium CSR series uses an extremely durable, heavy duty, triple layered material. The first layer is consists of the optical viewing surface, which is available in any one of our five materials. The second layer is a thick fiberglass layer giving the material strength and durability. The last layer is a fully black material that is opaque to all visible light.
At 1mm thick the middle fiberglass layer is extremely strong and resilient. This means that material is extremely resistant to having creases or folds and will easily last a life time. Not many manufacturers are using such thick material due to cost and most materials in the marketplace today will be paper thin and can be easily punctured with even a pencil.
The light absorbing black backing effectively stops light loss through the back of the screen. This results in more of the projected image reflecting back through the audience. The increase in projected light not only improves contrast levels, colour saturation, and brightness, it also allows for the projector to be run at a lower brightness setting, saving precious lamp life. Most projection materials sold today do not have the black backing and many manufactures claim they have opaque material. In reality, when the materials are held up to the sun, the light will pass right through showing the loss of light.
Extra Black Drop for High Ceilings
Our screens come with extra drop which is useful for high ceiling installations. The extra drop allows the screens dropped low enough so that screen is within the audience viewing cone. This feature saves installation costs by reducing the need for difficult and complex installation procedures.
The retraction system on our screen is specially designed so that it stops at regular intervals. This allows the flexibility to only use the surface area that you want. Additionally, the screen recoil mechanism uses heavy duty springs and locking mechanisms that will perform with clockwork precision year after year.
Designed with Installation Versatility in Mind
We believe building the screen to match your requirements, not the other way around. The Premium CSR screen can be installed on both walls as well as hung from ceilings, giving you ultimate installation flexibility.
Heavy Bottom Metal Bar to Keep the Screen Flat, Year after Year
A weighty steel bottom bar is used despite the extra costs added to the manufacturing of the screens. The extra weight of the steel bar keeps the screen flat and wrinkle free for years of use. Unlike our competitors, the Triton series screens, through the use of steel bar and heavy duty materials, will be in great condition after years of use.
All Premium CSR screens come packaged in two layers of 1 cm thick cardboard. This ensures that your screen is not damaged during the shipping process. In addition to the outer cardboard packaging, the screen housing is covered by a layer of plastic film to ensure the frames are delivered in impeccable condition. The material is well protected, as all parts are tied down to prevent any knocking during transportation.
