Screen Innovations' Mirage Screen Takes Projectors Out of the Dark

New Projection Screen Shows Vibrant, Sharp Pictures in the Brightest Environments

Austin, Texas - July 22, 2005 - Screen Innovations today introduced the latest convenience in home and commercial entertainment with the new Mirage Screen, a new front projection screen product that allows users to see clearly in high -brightness environments. This new technology represents a true breakthrough as it allows viewers to enjoy a realistic home theater experience in environments other than darkened rooms. Mirage revolutionizes screen technology, letting customers enjoy the benefits of big -screen entertainment in virtually any setting, transforming home theater into home entertainment.




Set for official launch at the Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association EXPO (CEDIA) on September 9, 2005 in Indianapolis, Indiana, the Mirage Screen offers 10 times greater contrast than standard front projection screens.



"We are pleased to introduce to the market a new product that offers consumers better technology, with a creative flair at an affordable price," said Ryan Gustafson, president of Screen Innovations. "The key to quality home entertainment is always comfort. Now consumers will enjoy the best performance from a product that fits any lifestyle."



How does it work?

The Screen Innovations Mirage Screen, with optics by DNP, features a patented high -contrast filter that covers 60% of the screen surface. This filter allows the projected image to be reflected by the screen and effectively absorbs incidental light from other angles from such sources as windows and room lighting. As a result, the screen is virtually unaffected by ambient light.
