Austin, TX (June 6, 2023) — Screen Innovations (SI) understands the complexities professional AV integrators often encounter when installing motorized projection screens in commercial environments. Aesthetics, performance, reliability, longevity, and interoperability all contribute to a successful deployment. With the introduction of its award-winning Solo 3 motorized projection screen cassette, SI addresses all key factors in one compact, design- and installation-friendly solution.
At InfoComm 2023, Booth #1282 SI pairs Solo 3 with an ultra-short-throw, ambient light rejecting screen material. This configuration is well-suited for applications such as corporate boardrooms, higher-ed classrooms, and training facilities where the audience needs light to view reference materials. Attendees can see at Booth #1282 how SI differentiates its Solo 3 cassette and screens through the use of several trend-setting features that lend a clean modern aesthetic, enable reliable performance, streamline installation, and withstand wear and tear in the most challenging of commercial environments.
“We’ve taken the most popular designs and best features of our motorized solutions and applied them to our signature Solo 3 motorized screen assembly,” says SI founder Ryan Gustafson. “Thanks to all the feedback from our dealers and customers, we built in all the features to enable systems integrators to deploy a large-format display solution with ease and efficiency. By pairing the Solo 3 cassette with one of our many screen materials systems integrators can deliver an imaging experience for a wide range of commercial applications.”
Compact, Discreet Footprint Blends into Any Commercial Environment
Featuring a slim, sleek design the Solo 3 is one of the smallest motorized projection screen cassettes in the AV industry, ranging from just under 4 inches to just under 7 inches, depending on the screen size selected. Unlike most other motorized projection screen cassettes, Solo 3 is manufactured as a visually flawless unit with no typical demarcations of the end caps. Units come powder-coated in white, black, or painted to match the surrounding surface, or the entire unit can be installed flush with the ceiling surface by using SI’s innovative suspended ceiling mount with locking zip nuts or tile grid mount. Units come powder-coated in white or black and can be painted to match the surrounding surface.
New Design Features Streamline Installation and Configuration
Thanks to Solo 3’s modular design, the fabric roller tube can be installed separately, making the cassette lighter and easier to handle. A trap door enables quick, easy access to the motor, cabling, projection fabric, control board, and other components. A variety of mounts and power options, including 24-volt and rechargeable lithium battery, deliver even more installation ease, while an internal control board, MOAB (Mother of All Boards). This advanced 485-based control board enables faster programming of setpoints, rotation, and motor reset, automatic discovery and programming of keypads and remotes, and seamless, customizable integration with control systems. Designed and engineered by SI, MOAB features numerous inputs/outputs to support a wide range of 485-based automation and control configurations to quickly commission the screen settings with other devices such as SI keypads. Built into Moab’s eye-catching translucent housing (which may be purchased separately for programming assistance) are 485- and dry contact ports, 12-volt triggers, and IR receivers. All programming can be accomplished directly via Moab without a computer or software.
Trend-Setting Features Lend Longevity and Better Performance
CNC cut tabs are a necessary feature of projection screens to help keep the attached material smooth and taut. Unlike most manufacturers, SI integrates its tabs directly into the screen fabric. This approach prevents the tabs from ever falling off, maintains a clean, smooth, undetectable appearance, and allows the screen to roll up uniformly in the Solo 3 cassette.
SI also prints the black borders of its screens using a micro-thin layer of ink instead of painting them. Unlike paint that can off-gas, smear, crack, and flake off over time, the printed drop and borders stay smooth and beautiful over the life of the screen.
