Dreamscreen Ultraweave V7
« on: March 10, 2020, 11:08:13 AM »
We´re happy to announce a new "v7" revision of our UltraWeave. This version will not replace the v6, but sold parallell. The gain has been increased by 16% from the v6 (0.8 rated), now at an official rating of 0.93. We have increased the gain by adding yet another custom made layer as well as adjusting the others (not the front woven layer though, it remains the same as for the v6), so now four layers in total.

Like the v6, the v7 follows the unity gain principle, meaning there is zero speckle / shimmer or other artefacts caused by positive gain. As stated above, the front "ultra" weave layer is the same, so the overall sharpness and appearance is very much like the v6 except for the added gain. We have benchmarked it towards Studiotek 100 as the reference (our favourite non-AT fabric) as well as the tightest woven matte screen we have been able to find, and it measures about 8% more than this particular 1.1 mfg rated AT fabric (0.86 vs. 0.93 on the v7).

Although there might still be some woven fabrics that inherit a little more gain, that would normally only be possible adding gloss / shine to the thread / fabric. I am sure some of you will get your hands on a sample soon and can start comparing. Compared to any of those high gain weaves the density of the v7 is in a completely different ballpark, allowing for closer seating and guaranteed no moiré at any resolution or projection technology.

The v6 remains our most audiophile option with an average loss of 1,5dB through the screen, while the v7 has an average of 3,3dB. We just tested the v7 in our Alcons equipped reference room today, and the audio appears to be flowing quite fine still. It will certainly be under critical test in some weeks time when we showcase it officially for the first time alongside Alcons Audio  #booth 6H-150 at the ISE show on February 11.-14. in Amsterdam. Later on at CEDIA, also alongside Alcons.

Limited deliveries are estimated spring / summer 2020, and will first be delivered in sizes of 2,3x4m / 90 1/2" x 157 1/2" and 2,3x5,3m / 90 1/2e" x 208 3/4". Price will be about 25% higher than the current v6 due to increased manufacturing costs.

The v6 is also available now in a new "medium" 2,3x4,5m / 90 1/2" x 177" roll size, MSRP is 1499.

Pictures are from iphone 7. Tried to take the individual screen sample pictures closer, but from the same distance away for each of them. First picture is all three together with V6 upper left, V7 upper right and Neo on bottom. Next are three pictures taken about 6" from each material. The surface of V6 and V7 looks the same. V7 is just brighter than V6, but also lower AT qualities. The Neo is laying on a black backing. As is V6 and V7 since they have a black backing built in. With image on screen, it is very clear that V7 has higher gain than Neo and V6, but it does come at a trade off in sound loss. To the eye, Neo and V6 looks the same gain, but V6/V7 has a smoother surface.

Whopwhop! The v7 production is now finished and we will be able to ship limited quantities of the regular version (not TextileShield) in a short while.

Samples will be shipped to AVS as soon as we receive the bulk delivery in 5-6 weeks.

...unfortunately CEDIA is cancelled so won´t be able to showcase it there this year... We will try to make out larger sample pieces this time in order to make a more viable comparison to existing / other material(s).
