Crystal Screens Announces New 120” and 150” High Gain Screens for Commercial Applications

Replacing the traditional screen manufacturing process with nanolens technology to achieve ultra-high gain and a wide viewing angle, Crystal Projection Screens are now available in larger sizes with a three-inch wide, easy-to-assemble bezel.

TORRANCE, CA – August 2, 2017 – Crystal Screens, a privately held, high technology company specializing in high gain projection screens, announces two new screen sizes, the 120” diagonal screen and 150” diagonal for professional A/V dealers and integrators. Utilizing the company’s proprietary holographic technology that rejects all types of ambient light sources and provides uniform optical performance over all color spectrums, the new screens are available in 16:9 and 16:10 aspect ratios and are designed for difficult lighting conditions common in commercial installations.

“Dealers have asked us for larger screen sizes and we’re very pleased to offer the 120” and 150,” notes Dave Cusick, Director of Sales for Crystal Screens. “Our engineering team worked tirelessly to create a virtually invisible seam that allows us to produce the larger screen sizes to accommodate retail spaces, house of worship, museums, corporate boardrooms and other venues where light is difficult to control.”

In addition to the exceptional gain and ambient light rejection, the Reflect 3.0 120” and 150” screens include a new three-inch-wide, velvet covered bezel with a proprietary frame tensioning design that is easy to assemble. “Dealers and integrators out in the field will appreciate the new modular frame design that can be installed in less time and saves valuable time,” says Cusick.

Originally developed for the aerospace industry by optical scientists, Crystal Screens’ holographic technology creates a random surface that manipulates light energy. The result is exceptional gain and ambient light rejection and zero hot spots. Crystal Screens provides a gain of 3.0, making it an ideal screen for brightly lit conference rooms, classrooms, theme parks, museums and other environments where ambient light is difficult to control.

Crystal Screens Announces Groundbreaking 130” Projection Screen for the Home Theater Market

The ultra-high-performance nano-lens screen material that manipulates light energy to provide a level of brightness and color vibrancy never seen before is now available in a seamless 130” 2.4:1 aspect ratio for home cinema.

TORRANCE, CA – July 27, 2017 – Crystal Screens (CEDIA 2017 booth #3451), manufacturer of ultra-high-performance nano-lens projection screens for the residential and commercial markets, announces the availability of a 130” diagonal screen tailored for high-end home cinema. Utilizing the company’s proprietary holographic technology that rejects all types of ambient light sources and provides uniform optical performance over all color spectrums, the new seamless screen has a 2.4:1 aspect ratio, commonly known as Cinemascope, which is becoming increasingly popular in home theater installations.

“This screen is a groundbreaking development for high-end home theaters,” notes Dave Cusick, Director of Sales for Crystal Screens. “Our technology and production capabilities are so vastly different than other screen materials that we are able to make the 130” screen without a seam and with all the amazing qualities of our smaller screens such as high gain, outstanding detail and black levels and zero hot spots.”

According to Cusick, the wider aspect ratio is becoming more common in residential installations because the 2.4:1 format matches the aspect ratio of many films being produced today. “It’s a wider format than standard 16:9 so you won’t have the distracting black bars on the top and bottom of the screen,” he exclaims. “The frame will match the video because most popular movies are now filmed using the wider aspect ratio.”

In addition to the exceptional gain and ambient light rejection, the Reflect 2.5 130” screen offers a 120° viewing angle and includes a three-inch-wide, velvet covered bezel with a proprietary frame tensioning design that is easy to assemble.

Crystal Projection Screens to Show 100” 2.5 Gain Screen at 2017 Infocomm

 The manufacturer of high-performance projection screens will show the capabilities of it 2.5 gain screen on the InfoComm show floor with no tenting, dimming or any ambient light control.

 TORRANCE, CA – June 13, 2017  – Crystal Screens by Luminit LLC, a privately held, high technology company specializing in custom and standard holographic diffusers, will show a 100” inch, 2.5 Gain projection screen with a new 3-inch non-reflective bezel frame designed for the professional audio/video market at this year’s Infocomm in Orlando, FL. Nevada (Booth# 1884). The first substantial development in front projection screen technology in decades, Crystal Screens incorporate holographic patterns to produce incredibly bright images for commercial spaces where ambient light is difficult to control.

“We purposely chose a booth where we knew the light would be bright to prove a point,” notes Dave Cusick, Director of Sales for Crystal Screens. “Our screens project a bright image without the need of an overhead tent or dimmed lighting because that is what our technology is designed to do.”

Originally developed for the aerospace industry by optical scientists, Crystal Screens’ holographic technology creates a random surface that manipulates light energy. The result is exceptional gain and ambient light rejection and zero hot spots. Unlike other screens where gain is reduced as the viewing angle increases, Crystal Screens provides a gain of 2.5 with a 120° viewing angle, making it an ideal screen for brightly lit conference rooms, classrooms, theme parks, museums and other environments.

Designed and manufactured in Crystal Screens’ high-tech facility in Torrance, California, the fixed screens ship unassembled via UPS, reducing shipping costs and lead times. Other benefits include the ability to produce endless screen lengths with no seaming and excellent contrast and black levels in bright, dim or dark environments.

Crystal Projection Screens Debuts 16:9 Screens at CEDIA

 Replacing the traditional screen manufacturing process with holographic nanolens technology, Crystal Screens offers a new level of performance for dealers and integrators.

TORRANCE, CA – September 14, 2016  – Crystal Screens by Luminit LLC, a privately held, high technology company specializing in custom and standard holographic diffusers, will introduce projection screens for the residential market at this year’s CEDIA in Dallas, Texas (Booth# 4147). The first substantial development in front projection screen technology in decades, Crystal Screens replaces the age-old screen manufacturing process with nanolens technology and the result is excellent ambient light rejection, zero hot spots, wide viewing angle and high gain.

“The viewing angle and ambient light rejection are so good that we’re showing the screen in a brightly-lit location so dealers and integrators can see how well it performs,” notes Dave Cusick, Director of Sales for Crystal Screens. “Whether it’s installed in a dedicated home theater or a brightly-lit media room, the screen is an ideal match for the latest projectors and can enhance the performance of older or moderately-priced projectors.”

Originally developed for the aerospace industry by optical scientists, Crystal Screens’ holographic technology creates a random surface that manipulates light energy. Unlike other screens where gain is reduced as the viewing angle increases, Crystal Screens provides a gain of 2.5 with a 120° viewing angle, making it an ideal screen for home theaters, media rooms, conference rooms, classrooms, and other environments where ambient light is difficult to control. Crystal Screens’ nanolens technology also preserves polarization effect so one screen can be used for both 2D and 3D viewing.

Designed and manufactured in Crystal Screens’ high-tech facility in Torrance, California, the fixed screens ship unassembled via UPS, reducing shipping costs and lead times. Other benefits include the ability to produce endless screen lengths with no seaming and excellent contrast and black levels in bright, dim or dark environments.

“Crystal Screens patented technology is unique to Crystal Screens and cannot be duplicated,” concludes Cusick. “It will not be sold on-line and custom integrators will appreciate the performance, the quality and fast turnaround times that comes with designing and manufacturing in the United States.”
