It’s tough to get video enthusiasts to agree on anything, but in the case of 3D, it’s just about unanimous: bigger is definitely better.
Looking to capitalize on this universally accepted sentiment, the screen manufacturer SI is promoting the high contrast capabilities of its Black Diamond screen material as a solution for consumers interested in large 3D video projection systems.
The company offers the screen material in a choice of 0.8 and 1.4 gains, and through authorized dealers, it can be ordered in a range of sizes and configurations, which include motorized 2.40:1 CinemaScope.
In addition, the screens can be used in a dedicated home theater room or in a media/great room type of environment where ambient light becomes a performance issue. The company also says the Black Diamond products are made in the U.S. and they are future-proof ready through their 2k x 4k compliance.
