Seymour-Screen Excellence to unveil new 4-way acoustically transparent masking film screen at CEDIA Expo
The TAM-4, a 4-way, constant-area True Aspect Masking (TAM) acoustically transparent film screen by Seymour-Screen Excellence, will make its “long-awaited debut” at the 2015 CEDIA Expo in Dallas this week. Seymour-Screen Excellence will have its new fixed-frame design on display at booth #6026 in the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center throughout the show.
The company’s TAM front-projection models offer Enlightor-4K woven fabric AT screen surfaces, AT masks, and narrow 3.8-inch profile frame bezels with a velvet finish, according to Seymour-Screen Excellence.
Chris Seymour, managing director of Seymour-Screen Excellence, said that customers typically pay a huge price for 4-way masking screens, in that their oversized frames are used to accommodate the many motorized masking panel assemblies, which results in bulky looking screens and a loss of usable image area. Seymour-Screen Excellence’s TAM-4, however, is designed around the same 3.8-inch wide and 5.8-inch deep frame used in the company’s 2-way TAM screens, he said.
“By shrinking the mechanical borders, the TAM-4 maximizes the 4K screen image area and minimizes the mechanical non-AT margins,” Seymour said in a statement. “The native 2.07 aspect ratio enables the TAM-4 to display the exact same image area for content from 16:9 to 2.40 ratios. The motorized acoustically transparent masks are continuously variable and independently controlled. The end-result is more picture and better sound.”
