In response to the unprecedented demand for the JKP Affinity Screen series for post production, home theater and commercial applications, Da-Lite and Joe Kane Productions are launching the new JKP Affinity 1.1 gain screen material.

In response to the unprecedented demand for the JKP Affinity Screen series for post production, home theater and commercial applications, Da -Lite and Joe Kane Productions are launching the new JKP Affinity 1.1 gain screen material. The new JKP Affinity Screen is designed for use in larger venues in combination with high lumen output HD projectors. The new HD Progressive 1.1 gain projection screen retains all of the product features that have made the JKP Affinity Screen series one of the most award winning in Da -Lite's history.


"Although the JKP Affinity Screen series was first introduced less than two years ago, we were experiencing demand for a wider selection of HD Progressive fabrics across all market segments," stated Wendy Long, Da -Lite's Vice President of Marketing. "The system integrators and AV consultants in the Pro AV market are seeing the same improvement in flat field uniformity, clarity and contrast that the post production and home theater dealers experienced with HD Progressive 0.6 and 0.9 gain screens."

"When we first announced the strategic partnership with Joe Kane in 2008, our goal was to produce a comprehensive line of HD Progressive projection screens that would address the myriad of AV applications," continued Long. "The Da -Lite chemists and engineers have now developed the third HD Progressive projection material that can be installed in larger venues or used with today's most powerful HD high resolution projectors. The results have been rewarding and must be experienced to be appreciated."

The new JKP Affinity Screen series now features three specific fabrics that can be used to address any market segment that demands the absolute best reproduction in a low ambient light installation, HD Progressive 0.6, 0.9 and 1.1. With its unmatched uniformity, clarity, contrast and picture fidelity, the addition of the HD Progressive 1.1 gain material gives both end users and integrators a wide range of JKP Affinity Screens to fit their needs. The new HD Progressive projection screens are available in seamless heights up to 16 feet and in fixed frame or electric screen versions.

Joe Kane is a past chair of the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) Working Group on Professional & Studio Monitors. He has also produced several groundbreaking programs, including A Video Standard, two versions of Video Essentials and multiple versions of Digital Video Essentials.
