Not all home theater screens are created equal. Severtson Screens is throwing a little curve into the market—literally. The company just announced plans to start shipping the new SeVision 3D GX Micro Perf Curved Screens.
Made in the USA, the SeVision 3D GX promises to enhanced 3D effects, all while offering an acoustically transparent audio experience. In other words, you should be able to place your home theater speakers behind this screen, with no problems and no reduction in audio quality.
It also has something called PristiVue technology, which boasts images just like the director intended them for theater use.
The SeVision 3D GX is also known as a “Green Screen,” because of its water-based optical coating, which is lacquer-free. That should protect the life of the screen, so it won’t yellow or sag over time.
“The SeVision 3D GX’s signal-to-noise ratio is an industry shattering 250:1 and the gain is 2.4,” said L. Craig Shelley, Severtson Screens CEO. “These features make ‘ghosting’ near obsolete, and thus allow it to work beautifully in ambient lighting. The SēVision 3D GX is the first home theater screen to be certified by all the major 3D licensors for digital projection, and can also be used for viewing 2D projection. It utilizes the same technology that helped earn an Oscar for IMAX in 1996, assuring that through viewing movies on this screen, everyone can experience the pristine visual presentations 3D digital projection has to offer.”
Designed for fixed and electric/motorized applications, the SeVision 3D GX is available now in custom and standard sizes. Shelley recommends contacting the company directly for pricing information.
