Da-Lite and Joe Kane Productions are launching a new JKP Affinity 1.1 gain screen material for use in larger venues in combination with high-lumen-output HD projectors.
“Although the JKP Affinity Screen series was first introduced less than two years ago, we were experiencing demand for a wider selection of HD Progressive fabrics across all market segments,” Da-Lite VP of marketing Wendy Long stated. “The system integrators and AV consultants in the Pro AV market are seeing the same improvement in flat field uniformity, clarity, and contrast that the post production and home theater dealers experienced with HD Progressive 0.6 and 0.9 gain screens.”
The new JKP Affinity Screen series now features three specific fabrics that can be used to address any market segment that demands the absolute best reproduction in a low ambient light installation, HD Progressive 0.6, 0.9, and 1.1.
The new HD Progressive projection screens are available in seamless heights up to 16 feet and in fixed frame or electric screen versions.
“When we first announced the strategic partnership with Joe Kane in 2008, our goal was to produce a comprehensive line of HD Progressive projection screens that would address the myriad of AV applications,” Long continued. “The Da-Lite chemists and engineers have now developed the third HD Progressive projection material that can be installed in larger venues or used with today’s most powerful HD high resolution projectors. The results have been rewarding and must be experienced to be appreciated.”
Joe Kane is a past chair of the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) Working Group on Professional & Studio Monitors. He has also produced several programs, including A Video Standard, two versions of his Video Essentials calibration disc and multiple versions of his Digital Video Essentials calibration disc.
