DNP Unveils Supernova Mobile Screen
Jul 3, 2007 12:00 PM
DNP, a supplier of optical projection screen technology, has recently unveiled the Supernova Screen, the first-ever optical front projection screen that allows viewing in brightly lit environments. The new DNP Supernova Mobile Screen is the portable edition of the award winning Supernova Screen family. This advanced optical front projection screen is quick to set up and conveniently rolls back into its lightweight metal case for easy transport and storage. Exceptionally high-contrast, vivid images in a handy, portable format make the Supernova Mobile perfect for situations where viewing locations and conditions change.
“Contrast is what gives a picture depth, nuance, atmosphere,” says Manfred Freiberger, senior account manager for DNP USA. “With Supernova Mobile you get up to 10 times more contrast. And since optical screens filter out unwanted reflections, DNP can deliver this quality even in broad daylight. Finally, no more darkened rooms or yawning audiences due to low lighting in a room.”
The Supernova Mobile allows presentations to be performed with the lights on, where speakers are free to maintain eye contact with the audience. This allows them to read their facial expressions for instance, or clarify a point by quickly drawing on a whiteboard, hold up a product sample for the group to see, and keep every viewer captivated.
The Supernova Mobile was created by applying DNP’s Supernova Screen surface to an ultra-thin yet durable polymer backing. The backing material resists light from behind and also serves as an attractive frame around the image area. The Supernova Mobile delivers up to ten times higher contrast than standard front screens. The technology used to develop Supernova is based on a revolutionary high-contrast filter that allows the projected image to be reflected from the screen, effectively absorbing incident light from other angles such as windows and room lighting. As a result, the screen is virtually unaffected by ambient light. Supreme black levels are balanced with an ergonomic brightness level to create vivid images with full color saturation to prevent eyestrain regardless of viewing position.
Complete with foldable supports to mount the screen either on a table or floor (depending on the screen size) and a metal case for storage, the Supernova Mobile can easily be taken along for use in various locations. After unfolding the built-in supports, the smaller 40in. screen unrolls horizontally and stands on a table. The larger 80in. screen is unrolled vertically and stands on the floor. Supernova Mobile is intended for use with a table-mounted projector.
