SI Features New Reference Motorized Projector Screen at 2009 CEDIA Expo

~ SI's New Reference Motorized Series is the First Flush & Décor Motorized Low Voltage Projector Screen Available, Making it the Leading Motorized Screen Solution for Home Theater Applications ~

Austin, Texas, July 28, 2009 - SI (www.siscreens.com) is proud to announce that it will feature its new GREEN low voltage Reference Motorized projector screen during the 2009 CEDIA Expo, held in Atlanta from Sept. 10 -13 at the Georgia World Congress Center, booth 1137. Now shipping, the new Reference Motorized projector screen is the first flush and décor motorized low voltage projector screen available today.


"Our new Reference Motorized Series sets the standard for high -end electric projector screens," explained Tim Freemyer, SI product development manager. "Reference motorized has changed the industry standard by eliminating the need for flush mount chassis. No longer do dealers and installers have to sell their customers an extra 'box' to mount the motorized screen in the ceiling. In addition, the Reference Motorized controls are external, giving installers the ultimate flexibility when installing high -end custom jobs. The controls can reside in the installation cabinet or equipment rack, making integration a breeze. This elegant new design includes all the amenities along with the convenience of a low voltage system."

According to Ryan Gustafson, SI president, transformative design eliminates the need for a flush mount chassis. "For over a century, flush mount screens have been shipped as a two piece system. With our new transformative design, we have completely eliminated the need for the box -in -a -box concept. No extra costs."

Low voltage eliminates the need for an electrician during installation. SI has developed one of the most powerful low voltage "quiet" motors available today. You can now hook up your motorized screen with a simple 16 gage two conductor wire, thus eliminating the need for line voltage at the screen location. "We have been constantly getting complaints from our dealers about hiring and relying on costly electricians," Gustafson continued. "With Reference Motorized, our dealers can simply plug in the motorized screen controls box with small power supply similar to a laptop."

Rack mount controls allow installers to mount the controls box in the customers equipment rack. No longer do you have to run a low voltage trigger wire, IR extension, RS232, etc. to the screen. Now, IR, LV trigger, RF, and RS232 can be hooked up in the equipment rack. Only a 16 gage two conductor wire is needed to power the screen.
