Screen Innovations "Long Drop" Option Ups Ante on Zero-G Screens
All things considered, Screen Innovations Zero-G screens are already a tremendous idea. It shows a dedication to your craft to update your portfolio both technically and aesthetically, and this is a product that hits both on the head.
That makes the new 'long drop option' another home run.
Screen Innovations says they have re-engineered many of the internals of the Zero-G chassis "including mechanics such as a new end-cap design that is milled entirely from one block of aluminum, and improved consistencies for internal mounting points by using barrel mounts instead of a pulley system." Alongside those new solutions, the long drop allows the viewing surface to display with nearly 16-feet of drop. That becomes insanely useful to put a screen almost anywhere, including raised ceilings of beautiful residential homes or other tricky commercial locations.
"Zero-G has always been an incredibly impressive screen, but the long drop option takes it to a whole new level," said Skyler Meek, Director of Marketing. "Sure, the awesome ALR capabilities of our screen materials solve a huge problem, but the most jaw-dropping part of the whole thing, for me at least, is just watching the thing roll up and down. No other screen on the planet offers this kind of experience."
The Zero-G screen is housed in a two-piece tube that is suspended from Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene cables and has no black mask above the viewing surface. The viewing surface is acoustically transparent and does not negatively impact the viewing experience like a standard motorized screen with black masking material would. Because it's completely open above, art-deco walls, large windows like what you will find in a house of worship, speakers, or even lighting systems all remain visible, not covered by a large black mask such as you would find in traditional motorized screen systems.
Zero-G is completely custom built by hand just like the rest of SI's screens in their Austin, TX facilities. This ensures complete control over the development, engineering, and production processes. To further simplify the specification process for its dealers, SI has made it easy to order and configure a screen in less than 30-seconds with the online screen builder tool.
