On display will be the new Black Diamond Motorized and Black Diamond Zero Edge G2 projection screen as well as several new versions of the lesser-known Lunar(TM) Gray and Solar(TM) White screen materials, and a brand new rear-projection screen material called FlexGlass(TM) that is the first of its kind within the SI line. Demonstrating game-changing technologies that can easily represent a greater value per square inch in the video category than traditional flat panel displays, CEDIA Expo 2012 attendees are sure to be captivated with what they see in Screen Innovations booth #2225.
New: Black Diamond(TM) Motorized
A new and truly unique motorized design utilizing SI’s award-winning Black Diamond ambient light rejection screen technology, Black Diamond Motorized is a sleek and sexy flat-panel alternative that actually disappears when not in use, ideal for virtually any environment or application. Utilizing one motor, four custom helixes, and a spool of slender aircraft cable, Black Diamond Motorized silently lowers a thin wing containing the rolled Black Diamond screen downward from a recessed ceiling-mounted cassette. The cable-hung wing then stops, and from it, a small tube quickly emerges and lowers itself down to an adjustable, pre-determined image height, leaving only the image space in sight. Because Black Diamond screens do not require masking or any black drop material whatsoever, there is no visible material above, below, or on either side of the screen surface, allowing the images projected on Black Diamond Motorized to appear as though they are suspended in air. Unlike flat panel TVs, Black Diamond Motorized delivers zero glare and reflection when used in a bright environment, and by virtue of its industry-leading Black Diamond ambient light rejection screen technology, light scatter is measurably reduced by over 75%. Delivering a next-level entertainment experience while literally disappearing into the room’s existing dÃ©cor when not in use, Black Diamond Motorized appeals to the senses – and satisfies the needs of – a diverse audience.
New: Black Diamond(TM) Zero Edge G2
The New Black Diamond Zero Edge G2 by Screen Innovations is the world’s first and only multi-directional ambient light rejecting projection screen technology that has the look and feel of a flat panel TV. Featuring a rigid panel, a pencil-thin 10mm bezel, and the award-winning Black Diamond screen technology that can boost a projector’s contrast by over 900%, Zero Edge screens blend flawlessly with surrounding dÃ©cor, deliver a stunning image, and provide a fully immersive entertainment experience. A new frame design provides better structural support, an integrated track system gives integrators the option to inlay optional full perimeter lighting behind the screen for added effect, and improved shipping cartons simplify jobsite handling and reduce freight costs. Black Diamond Zero Edge G2 offers the most affordable, innovative, and versatile projection screen technology available, setting a new aesthetic standard that is currently unmatched in the residential or commercial marketplaces.
New: Solar 4K 1.3 Projection Screen Material

Delivering an exceptional active 3D image, a wide viewing angle, and a vivid picture with bright punch, Solar 4K rivals traditional standard-bearers in either residential or commercial environments. Solar 4K is available in 1″ increments in sizes up to 12′x330″ – which is unheard of in today’s market.
New: Lunar 4K .85 Projection Screen Material
Lunar 4K .85 Gray is a new front projection screen material featuring a revolutionary new emboss pattern that provides perfect uniformity, color neutrality and enhanced contrast, which preserves color saturation and accuracy in a multitude of challenging environments.
