Elite Screens Peregrine (Lunette) AcousticPro 4K
The new Peregrine AcousticPro 4K (A4K) frame projection screen with next-generation 4K acoustically transparent material is available in a variety of sizes and aspect ratios in either a flat or curved “Lunette” format for the dedicated residential/commercial integrator.
The AcousticPro 4K acoustically transparent (AT) material has phenomenal color uniformity and off-axis luminescence that wraps the viewer in a vivid image as sound breathes through the material with a minimal acoustic insertion loss or dispersion. Additionally, the material has a black backing to eliminate bounce back shadowing and distortion. The AcousticPro 4K has a 1.1 gain projection surface designed for use with high resolution 4K (4096x2160) projectors. The AcousticPro 4K material is crafted to allow in-wall speakers to give an excellent audio performance from behind the screen with mean attenuation of -2.05dB at 8 k - 20 kHz test frequencies. Visually, the A4K provides wide diffusion uniformity while working beautifully with anamorphic lenses and scalers to enhance clarity and resolution in its Cinemascope format. the AcousticPro 4K material eliminates the moiré artifacts commonly produced by the traditional loose weave AT materials of other brands.
The 3.5” wide framework is of anodized aluminum that is velour surfaced to eliminate projector glare while enhancing perceived image contrast. It is available in either a flat or curved “Lunette” frame for either an HDTV or Cinemascope aspect ratios. The curve design of the Lunette enhances the image’s aesthetic appeal by giving its viewers the sensation of being physically drawn into the cinemascope film. The curve design also eliminates the “pincushion effect” commonly experienced when projecting in a 2.35:1 (Cinemascope) format. The Peregrine AcousticPro 4K assembles quickly and its sliding wall brackets allow for each installation to be perfectly centered. Product is available for immediate integrator fulfillment through our Elite Prime Vision (EPV) Custom Install channel.

The Peregrine AcousticPro 4k combines the elements of functional simplicity with the refinement of cutting-edge home theater technology. It has 4-basic features that set it far ahead of other brands. Those features are the superior audio-video performance; its compatibility with high-resolution 4K projectors; its convenience to acquire through competitive pricing; and lastly, its easy assembly and availability.
Material & performance:
The material presents a lightweight, high-density weave that is compatible with high resolution 4K (4096x2160 pixel ratio) projectors without moiré artifacts. It provides superb picture quality and color temperature yet still allows sound to penetrate with minimal attenuation. Other AT materials on the market today struggle with eliminating moiré when used with high resolution projectors; the A4k with its revolutionary weave, does not.
The few AT materials that are capable of working with 4K projectors generally do so at a price point that is now unacceptable to most potential buyers. The AcousticPro 4K material itself is American-made and when coupled with it's Elite frame, offers the high-level performance at a cost that integrators can actually propose to the average consumer. For this reason, it has a game-changing advantage. The Peregrine A4K brings award-winning performance and high-end quality at a price that will save bids or win over hesitant buyers with great end results.
Assembly & Availability:
As an added value, the Peregrine AcousticPro 4K fixed-frame projection screens are easy to assemble. Experienced hands can put them together it in less than 20-minutes.The material mounts quickly and with perfect tension distribution by using its removable "fix-plate" fasteners. These simple, removable fasteners ensure that the material can always be fitted with uniform tension over the entire surface. Lastly, all product lines are made in the most commonly requested sizes and aspect ratios for immediate order fulfillment.
Simply put, the Peregrine AcousticPro4K gives the consumer an unparalleled combination of video performance with acoustic transparency at a price point most home theater customers can afford.
Versatility: It comes in either a traditional flat or curved "Lunette" configuration with choice of 16:9 (HDTV) or 2.35:1 (Cinemascope) aspect ratios in a variety of 84"-158" sizes. The flat configuration is for general applications whereas the curved "Lunette" configuration suits wider Cinemascope formats by eliminating the pincushion effect and creating a heightened sense of immersion.
Performance: It wraps the viewer in a vivid image with excellent direct and off-axis luminescence along with stunning color uniformity. Sound pierces through the AcousticPro 4K material with minimal attenuation while presenting a high resolution 4K (4096x2160 pixel ratio) image free from moiré artifacts.
Convenience: The revolutionary concept of the Lunette 4K is that it is produced in the most commonly requested sizesand formats giving it both a price and availability advantage for installers on a project that until now, was available. The product represents the ultimate convergence of quality and cost efficiency that has been sorely lacking in the dedicated installer market. Such innovation provides a tremendous increase in new-customer opportunities for installers.

Peregrine (Lunette) AcousticPro 4K
The Peregrine Acousticpro 4K projection screen has next-generation high resolution 4K acoustically transparent material. It’s available in either a flat or curved frame in various sizes and aspect ratios.
The Dark Star is professionally engineered to incorporate optical filters that actively reflect a projected image while preventing indirect or ambient light from “washing out” the picture. The retro-reflective material has been designed specifically for the home theater environment. With the sublime balance of gain, contrast and viewing angle, the DarkStar brings a hard-hitting performance to either a well lit or dark projection room. The 1.4 gain material offers dazzling brightness with color neutrality while maintaining superior contrast for enhanced black levels. From a microscopic perspective, the DarkStar utilizes a complex design that enhances brightness, filters ambient light and even provides exceptional contrast all within its .03mm thick material. Direct light is reflected back toward its source with a half gain of 35° horizontally and 16° vertically. This combination of retro-reflective filters and neutral black contrast layers creates an image where “black-level” details are easily seen without compromising the color balance. In addition to this, a durable surface coating diffuses the light to eliminate hot-spotting, glare or other visual artifacts commonly encountered with higher-gain screens. Lastly, the material’s durability makes it ideal for either fixed, curved or even roll-up screen applications.

Airflex5D-5S is a projector stacking processor that precisely aligns the images of multiple projectors vertically and horizontally into a single 2D or even passive 3D (linear or circular) image with superior brightness levels. High-end 1080P projectors that produce 10000+ lumens are upwards of $50K to $80K or more! When breaking down the cost-to-lumen ratio, this is about $5-8 per lumen in picture brightness. However, with an AF5D-5S system, you can get similar results by using a combination of 4x standard 3000 lumen projectors with a pair of AF5D-5S stacking processers and get similar results while paying on average below $1 per lumen. The Airflex5D units can accommodate up to 1920 x 1200 resolution projectors with dual-channel geometric image correction while supporting de-interlacing, scaling and image enhancement. The innovative design creates a high-performance image similar to the high-dollar, high-lumen commercial 1080P projectors. The Airflex5D-5S utilizes geometric image correction that is crucial in projecting on extreme curved or dome screen projection arrays. This is a groundbreaking opportunity for home theater enthusiasts because it finally makes the superior but costly passive 3D array affordable to the average consumer’s budget. with a choice of circular or linear passive 3D performance.
