With CEDIA around the corner, manufacturers are beginning to provide sneak peeks at some of the new products that will be at the show. Severtson Screens plans to show one of its older home theater screens—but with a new twist.
Severtson Screens announced a new pricing model for its Legacy Series fixed frame home theater screens. However, they are also adding in a Bright White Acoustically Transparent (BWAT) option to the lineup.
According to Severtson Screens, the Legacy Series features acoustic material that is framed on a 30-degree angle to avoid moiré. The acoustically transparent material is also washable, flame retardant and mildew resistant. Other features include a 1.0 gain, a 60-degree viewing angle, light absorbing black velvet around the frame, sliding mounting brackets, and Severtson’s Tension Rod system. Basic materials include Cinema White and Cinema Grey, with assorted sizes available.
“Our customers asked for a high-end, acoustically-transparent screen solution for the Legacy series and an even more affordable price structure, and we responded,” says Toby Severtson, president and CEO of Severtson Corp. “Utilizing new state-of-the-art materials designed for applications where a more realistic soundstage is desired, the Legacy’s addition of the BWAT screen allows for the installation of speakers to be placed directly behind the screen surface. With virtually no loss to the audio soundstage along with sharp image quality, its specially designed perforations allow the sound to pass through the screen material smoothly. We have also reduced pricing for this line, making a great projection screen option even more affordable.”

“Watching movies at home is supposed to be fun and a great way to bring the family together much like a trip out to the big cinema does,” Severtson continues. “We designed the BWAT Legacy Series to be just that… a way to bring the big-screen experience home so that everyone can enjoy both the stunning visuals and unaltered audio as the movies were intended to be seen.”
