High points
  • Displayed remarkably deep blacks, superb contrast, and excellent color fidelity on bright show floor
  • Barely a hint of any sparkle or artifacts even from close up
  • Both foldable for transport or rollable for use in retracting screens
  • Full 180-degree viewing angle in all directions


Wow - this screen sounds absolutely amazing, though it is only tuned for laser projectors. Sounds like it may be a while for it to be made available for consumers though, and no idea on pricing. By that time we should have even more laser options.

" If the concept is a little hard to grasp, the result is undeniable. Two 16 x 9-foot demo screens, lit up by a 25,000-lumen Christie RGB laser projector and a 35,000-lumen blue-laser+phosphor Panasonic, displayed remarkably deep blacks, superb contrast, and excellent color fidelity, with barely a hint of any sparkle or artifacts even from close up "

I'm curious how the screen would react different with a laser phosphor projector and a lamp projector.

Article quotes them as saying a lamp projector would cause a loss of 30% peak brightness b/c it's so tuned to laser energy.

It's something to keep an eye on for more info. And obviously they were using commercial level brightness but it still seems super impressive.
