Austin, TX—July 25, 2016—Screen Innovations (SI), the innovators who introduced Black Diamond®, the first-ever ambient-light rejecting screen which revolutionized the video projection screen industry, has announced the introduction of Tiles, a new screen tiling system that redefines the video wall category. Built with the award-winning Black Diamond® screen technology, Tiles can go as large as 288” W by 162” H (330” diagonal), and is 4K/8K+ rated and UHD/HDR ready.
“Black Diamond® has been touted as the best screen that money can buy however, it comes with limitations,” says Skyler Meek, Director of Marketing for SI. “Because of the extreme engineering required to manufacture the optical qualities in the material, it is limited in height. To overcome this, SI has created a system that uses smaller, rigid tiles precision-bonded together in order to create one larger screen.”
To build a Black Diamond® video wall, panels are placed next to each other with a nearly invisible seam, and stacked in a running-bond pattern for superior strength. This is achieved by SI’s all-new, computer controlled cutting system, which is capable of cutting to extremely precise specifications. This attention to detail is what ensures that customers receive the best possible accuracy, quality, and longevity from their tile screens.
To ensure that the installation process is as time-efficient and simple as possible, SI has designed a system that is 75% pre-fabricated; each panel then snaps into place with an attachment system that utilizes neodymium magnets. This installation process allows integrators to assemble a video wall of any size with ease minimizing hassle on the job. All panels are precision-cut and stocked in three sizes: 45”, 50” and 55” for 16:9 and 43”, 48”, and 53” for 16:10.
“What’s so revolutionary about this system,” Skyler Meek continues, “is that there is now a solution for a massive ‘video wall’ type screen without any of the headaches, installation problems, or budget concerns that give integrators nightmares. Tiles require only a single light source, are a breeze to install, and are maintenance free (except for the occasional gentle dusting.) And the technology is future-proofed with 8K+ resolution rating and UHD/HDR capability.”
“Tiles with Black Diamond® are the perfect solution for commercial installations and high traffic areas such as digital signage, restaurants, educational facilities, stadiums, and just about any location where bright, detailed images are critical.”
