The Made in the USA Enhanced SAT-4K Offers a Finer Weave and Brighter White Material for Increased Visual Performance; the SēVision 3D GX-WA Coating Offers Increased Uniformity & Brightness Typically Seen More Often on 2D White Screens
San Tan Valley, Ariz., USA, Sept. 22, 2022 – Severtson Screens (severtsonscreens.com), a global leader in innovative and quality projection screens for the cinema, commercial, pro AV, and home theater markets, is proud to announce that it will feature its next generation SAT-4K Acoustically-Transparent cinema projection screen line and enhanced SēVision 3D GX-WA projection screen coating during the 2022 MENA Cinema Forum, held in Dubai, United Arab Emirates from Oct. 25-26 at Atlantis, The Palm for which Severtson is a strategic Cinema Screen partner, ShowEast, held in Miami from Oct. 17-20, and ICA-Australia, held in Queensland, Australia from Oct. 25-27. Severtson will also feature its updated cinema screen “Price Estimator” for its dealer base during these shows.
“Our SAT-4K has received tremendous accolades since its launch, and we are proud to build upon its success with the next generation which features an even finer weave and whiter material that makes the viewing image even better than before,” explained Toby Severtson, president and CEO of Severtson Corp. “Made in the USA, the SAT-4K’s acoustic abilities are not hampered by the finer weave, and we can now also seam SAT-4K for larger cinema screens to virtually limitless sizes.”
Said Ricardo LaPorta, South America Territory Sales Manager for Christie Digital Systems, “When we first saw a demonstration of Severtson’s SAT-4K material, we did not have any sound quality loss with high pitch frequency audio, as such loss is apparent in vinyl screens. The SAT-4K has tremendous sound transfer capabilities, along with remarkable visual clarity. To say we are impressed is an understatement.”
LaPorta added that due to the SAT-4K’s performance, they are now using the SAT-4K screen in Christie’s Sao Paulo, Brazil training facility.
Severtson continued, “The foldable SAT-4K is the ideal projection screen for virtually all cinema requirements. Like perforated screens, the sound stage can be placed directly behind the screen at the same horizontal axis, allowing the vocals and the special effects to be completely in sync with the brilliant images on display. Due to almost no audio frequency loss, the SAT-4K screen allows for a completely immersive cinema experience.”
Severtson Corp. V.P. & Chief Operating Officer Dan Maxwell added, “Our folded shipping method allows for no loss in the screen’s structural nor visible integrity, and now makes international distribution of the SAT-4K cinema screen line highly affordable, reducing international shipping costs by up to 70 percent.”
Currently available to nearly limitless sizes in both height and length, the SAT-4K cinema screen meets or exceeds all industry standards for optimum video and acoustic performance, with reference quality reproduction of the digital image combined with true fidelity of the original soundtrack.
Additional specifications include:
- Surface: SAT-4K acoustically woven screen material
- Gain: 1.18
- Max height: 16 ft seamless; customizable to desired specifications with seams
- Viewing Angle: 160 degrees

Custom and standard sizes are available. Severtson asks that customers contact them directly for individual pricing for their specific needs.
“Our enhanced SēVision 3D GX-WA projection screen coating is a brilliant example of Severtson Screens’ continued quest for quality, improvement, and innovation,” added Severtson. “The SēVision 3D GX-WA coating provides the benefits of the standard SēVision 3D GX coating, but offers increased uniformity and brightness typically seen more often on 2D white screens. It is also engineered specifically to increase the viewing angle over standard silver screens while also reducing hotspotting.”

“Do you already know exactly what you’re looking for in a cinema screen and want to know the price right away, any time of the day or night?” asked Severtson. “We’ve designed the price estimator to do just that for our dealer network.
