The ultimate home theaters are based around projection systems, but many people mistakenly believe putting a big screen in their room will look terrible. At the same time, those people are very willing to hang a big flat panel TV that protrudes several inches from the wall and requires heavy mounting hardware and new wiring (well, Ok, projectors require wiring too).

Anyway, Screen Innovations, a projection screen company, has come up with a screen designed to satisfy the aesthetic complaints and also work perfectly in a normally lit room rather than be restricted to a dark theater

The Black Diamond Zero Edge screen is billed as an “affordable flat-panel alternative.” 

First, the screen is a fixed, rigid panel only 9mm, so you hang it on the wall like you would a flat-panel TV. It has a ¼-inch “pencil-thin bezel” even thinner than found on a thin LED LCD TV.

Among the mounting options are: recessed (unframed), flush, projected off-wall or “flying” from ceiling-suspended cables. Screen Innovations notes that there’s no assemble required—just unpack and hang (fabric screens require frame assembly).

The Diamond Zero is available in standard screen sizes from 80 to 142-inch diagonal as well as custom sizes. Screen materials available include Black Diamond 2.7, Black Diamond 1.4 and Black Diamond 0.8. Look for it in October.
