Seymour-Screen Excellence Adds 4-Way Acoustically Transparent Masking Screen
Seymour-Screen Excellence Adds Acoustically Transparent True Aspect Masking Projection Screen to Product Offerings
December 14, 2015
The smaller mechanical borders of the TAM-4 save additional projection area, allowing for a greater range of aspect ratios.
Seymour-Screen Excellence has unveiled a TAM-4, four-way, constant-area True Aspect Masking (TAM) acoustically transparent (AT) projection screen. The TAM-4 is fixed-frame design is available with either vertical (constant height) or horizontal (constant width) motorized AT masking.
The offerings feature Enlightor-4K woven-fabric AT screen surfaces, AT masks, and narrow 3.8-inch profile frame bezels finished in lush velvet.
According to Seymour-Screen Excellence managing director Chris Seymour, typically customers pay a huge price for four-way masking screens, namely oversized frames are used to accommodate the many motorized masking panel assemblies. This results in bulky looking screens and loss of valuable image area. Conversely, Seymour designed the TAM-4 around the same 3.8-inch wide and 5.8-inch depth frame used in the company’s two-way TAM screens.
“By shrinking the mechanical borders, the TAM-4 maximizes the 4K screen image area and minimizes the mechanical non-AT margins. The native 2.07 aspect ratio enables the TAM-4 to display the exact same image area for content from 16:9 to 2.40 ratios. The motorized acoustically transparent masks are continuously variable and independently controlled. The end-result is more picture and better sound.”—Chris Seymour, managing director, Seymour-Screen Excellence
