We’ve seen a lot of Ultra HD 4K TVs and projectors this year. However, there haven’t been too many screens being pushed for 4K use. Severtson Screens is hoping to stand out by making its Spirit Series “4K ready.”
Before you ask, know that there isn’t really a difference between a 4K-ready screen and a regular screen. However, if you’re going to create a 4K-capable home theater, you’re going to need a good screen. The Spirit is a motorized projection screen that’s designed for on-wall, in-ceiling or suspended installations. That basically means that this unit can disappear when it’s not in use. It has a really clean appearance, thanks to a triangular-shaped weight bar that forms a solid bottom when closed, with no slot opening. Also, the motor is mounted inside the roller for an ultra-silent operation.
The company has also made the Spirit Series flame retardant, mildew resistant, and available in either matte white [1.0 Gain] or matte grey [.8 Gain].
“The enhanced 4K-ready Spirit Series electric screen is a motorized screen that is designed for use in commercial and residential environments where the screen is needed to disappear when not in use,” explained Toby Severtson, president and CEO of Severtson Corp. “Any installer will tell you that no two installations are alike, no matter if it’s in a home, church, boardroom, school, hospital, or any other setting. The Spirit Series gives the customer and the installer the flexibility of yet another option to ‘hide’ the screen when desired. That’s great news because sometimes it’s just not aesthetically pleasing or functionally practical to always have the screen showing.”
Made in the USA, the Spirit Series is shipping now in standard sizes ranging from 92 to 120 inches (diagonal) in the HDTV format (16:9/1.78:1) or 95 to 123 inches for a wide PC (16:10/1.6:1). Of course, custom sizes are also available. Contact the company directly for pricing and purchase information.
