Overview

Our take on the Screen Innovations 5 Series

In a movie theater, the illusion of reality is enhanced by having the front speakers positioned behind the screen. Perforated screens like this one let you enjoy that same heightened realism in your home theater. It's a screen solution that will please the most demanding videophiles and audiophiles.

Screen Innovations 5 Series Acoustic screen

A perforated screen lets sound pass through, so you can install in-wall speakers behind the screen and enjoy clean sound and a clean look.

Enjoy big, seamless picture and sound

In a movie theater, the illusion of reality is enhanced by having the front speakers positioned behind the screen. Perforated screens like this one let you enjoy that same heightened realism in your home theater. It's a screen solution that will please the most demanding videophiles and audiophiles.

We use the 133" version of this screen in our main training room.

Tiny holes let the sound pass through

This screen's perforated fabric allows sound to pass through the screen. You can place speakers behind the screen with virtually no loss in sound — or picture — quality. Install in-wall speakers behind the screen and enjoy clean sound and a clean look. A perforated screen is a great option if creating a very realistic soundstage is one of your top priorities.

Screen Innovations' acoustic perforated materials have over 28,000 tiny .55mm diameter holes per square foot. During the development of their perforation technology, SI sent their materials to third-party acoustics labs for testing. Typical impact on frequency response is well within the -3dB range, with maximum attenuation of -6dB at 20,000 Hz.

This effect can be easily corrected by most modern A/V receivers with room correction. Also, many in-wall speakers include a treble compensation switch to adjust for this type of installation.

See the finest details, even with 4K — no "man cave" needed

Conventional projection screens require a dark room to produce a vivid, colorful picture. But Screen Innovations' Slate screen material allows you to enjoy an outstanding picture even in a room with some lights on. Slate's special optical coatings reject 65% of a room's ambient light, compared to less than 10% rejection using a standard white or gray screen.

Slate screens feature SI's proprietary Micro Texture surface that is nine times finer and smoother than conventional screen materials. That means 4K Ultra High Definition content will look pinpoint-sharp, with exceptional picture depth. If you're thinking about making the jump to a 4K projector, like one of Sony's SXRD models, a Slate screen makes an ideal match. This gray surface enhances picture contrast and black levels.

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. Screen Innovations' patented EZ-Snap™ tensioning system simplifies installation, and ensures an exceptionally flat, tight surface, for projecting a flawlessly smooth image. The screen should be mounted 36" to 42" from the floor.
