SI Announces New Projector Screen "EZ -snap" Frames at 2008 CEDIA Expo

~ Catering to the Needs and Requests of its Customers, SI's New "EZ-snap" Frames Install in Minutes as Well as Provide an Option to Curve the Frame ~

Austin, Texas, August 11, 2008 - SI (www.siscreens.com) is proud to announce that it will unveil its new Reference and Performance Series "EZ -snap" projector screen frame system at the 2008 CEDIA Expo, held in Denver from Sept. 4 -7 at the Colorado Convention Center, booth 1056. The new "EZ -snap" system is scheduled to begin shipping in October.


"This represents the next evolution in creating the ultimate home theater experience," explained Aaron Reilly, SI CTO "Our customers love our new projector screens, but have been asking for an enhanced and quicker way of installing them. SI's new Reference and Performance 'EZ -snap' Frames with sliding attachment points are the answer that sets the standard for high -end fixed projector screen frames and material tensioning systems."

The new "EZ -snap" system installs in minutes and, when compared to all other snap systems, maintains improved uniformity of perimeter tension. This dramatically reduces tension points that eventually create screen sag over time. "EZ -snap" has even retained the benefits of SI's existing T -Line attachment system, but provides a much quicker installation.

"'EZ -snap' screen materials install in less than five minutes, and have zero learning curve," Reilly continued. "Its performance is equal to or better than T -Line, so our existing customers need not worry that they are sacrificing performance for ease of install. They are getting the best of both worlds."

The new "EZ -snap" system will be the same price as the current Performance and Reference series SI products. For more information, please visit the web at www.siscreens.com or call 512 -832 -6939.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
