Seymour-Screen Excellence Shipping Single-Masked AT Screen

TAM-1T Acoustically Transparent Screen Utilizes Single Motorized Masking System November 30, 2016
Why This Matters

The TAM-1T’s top drop-down approach makes it possible to maintain a constant screen width across three different aspect ratios, without the need for a lower mask.

Seymour-Screen Excellence is now shipping its TAM-1T fixed-frame, single-masked, acoustically transparent (AT) film screen. TAM-1T utilizes a top drop-down mask approach to achieve motorized switching between any aspect ratio from 1.78 to 2.4, an industry first, according to the company. Starting at $8,200 MSRP, the TAM-1T is the company’s most cost-efficient motorized masking film screen solution to date.

The TAM-1T is built on the same Reference Series frame as the other TAM (True Aspect Masking) models (TAM-2 and TAM-4). The Reference Series border is 3.7 inches wide, and is finished in the company’s Infinite Black Velvet light-absorbing material. The masking assembly motor features quiet, smooth operation and is neatly concealed behind the screen.

The masking is made of an acoustically transparent black fabric, which complements the Enlightor4K screen surface, making a 100 percent acoustically transparent film screen system. Certified by ISF for color purity, Enlightor4K is a finely woven fabric surface with no minimum seating distance and no frequency affect for audio. An acoustically transparent film screen enables the center channel loudspeaker (and in many instances left and right front speakers) to be installed behind the screen, putting all three on the same horizontal plane.

“Our True Aspect Masking screens have become quite popular amongst dealers designing screening rooms on the higher-end of the spectrum,” said Seymour-Screen Excellence managing director Chris Seymour. “With TAM-1T we found a way to deliver comprehensive aspect ratio control without the somewhat costly second masking assembly. This represents a cost savings of approximately 30 percent less than the dual-masking systems. We see good opportunities for dealers to turn to TAM-1T for rooms where they are striving for the highest caliber theater experience however budget is a relevant factor.”

The TAM-1T is available in screen sizes ranging from 90 to 160 inches wide (103 to 184 inches diagonal). Custom sizes are available upon request.
