Draper® Unveils Versatile and Elegant Screen for All Conditions

Projection conditions vary according to the surrounding environment. That’s why the new Acumen™ from Draper® was designed with maximum versatility in mind.

All Draper free-hanging and tab-tensioned viewing surfaces including TecVision are available with the Acumen, so you can enhance contrast, brighten the image, or reject ambient light depending on room and lighting conditions.

The Acumen is our most versatile projection screen yet. It is available up to 18 feet wide and with a variety of motor options. The optional rechargeable battery motor goes up to 500 cycles between charges, in sizes to 10’ wide. It is also available as a manual screen.

“Projection technology has improved drastically so it can be successful in more conditions than ever before. Along with that has come a need in the market for a surface mounted screen that looks great even when it’s not in use,” said Bob Mathes, director of audio visual markets. “The Acumen lets us accomplish these dual missions in a single product family that will be the most flexible on the market.”

The Acumen’s elegant extruded aluminum housing has fewer visible fasteners and features a stunning white powder coated finish to complement any room design. Floating mounting brackets allow quick and easy installation no matter where the wall studs or ceiling supports are located, and the fascia is easily removable for maintenance.

Draper is so confident in the Acumen’s quality that the company is standing behind it with an extended 7-year warranty. The Acumen will begin shipping in August. For more information, visit
