Screen Innovations 5 Series
Fixed-frame projector screen with Zero Edge® frame and acoustically transparent Maestro White woven fabric (160")
Our take on the Screen Innovations 5 Series by Crutchfield's Steve Kindig
A screen that videophiles and audiophiles will love
In a movie theater, the illusion of reality is enhanced by having the front right, left, and center speakers positioned behind the screen. Screen Innovations' Maestro screen material can provide that same heightened realism in your home theater.
The woven fabric lets sound pass through
For audiophiles, or anyone wanting to hide speakers without harming sound quality, Maestro is a great solution. Maestro is a woven, acoustically transparent material that lets you place speakers behind the screen. Maestro's acoustic characteristics ensure outstanding audio clarity with a maximum measured variance of +2dB, -1dB from 20 to 20,000 Hz.
Maestro also delivers superior picture quality, with 4K resolution, excellent color neutrality and brightness uniformity, and wide viewing angles. This material is an excellent choice for dark environments.
5 Series screens can show even the finest details
If you're thinking about making the jump to a 4K projector, like one of Sony's SXRD models, a 5 Series screen makes an ideal match. As a projector's resolution increases, the pixel size decreases. The smaller the pixel, the more chance there is that a screen's weave pattern or "grit" will dull some of the picture detail. Maestro's woven fabric was engineered to show every bit of detail in 4K images.
The Zero Edge series is one of Screen Innovations' most popular designs ever, and it's easy to see why. With its super-skinny frame and beautifully crisp picture, it looks more like an enormous flat-screen TV than a projection screen. It even looks good with the image turned off.
This screen ships unassembled, and can be put together using basic hand tools. The screen should be mounted 36" to 42" from the floor.
