In a response to the home theater market demand for ever larger projection screens that can display optional format choices, Da-Lite’s new Dual Format Imager allows for sizes up to 220 inches of diagonal viewing area. This provides a masking system with more than 18 diagonal feet.
The new Dual Format Imager is available in either the Cinemascope to HDTV format or the HDTV to NTSC Video format. With either choice, the user gets fingertip control between formats.
“Today’s home theater owners want bigger projection screens for the ultimate in-home experience,” commented Wendy Long, Da-Lite’s vice president of marketing. “The Dual Format Imager is designed to complement Da-Lite’s line of fixed-frame screens, including Cinema Contour, Da-Snap and Imager.”
The Dual Format Imager masking system fits Da-Lite’s fixed frame projection screens that are available in 13 fabric choices and include both front- and rear-screen projection fabrics, including Da-Lite’s 3D Virtual Black and 3D Virtual Grey revolutionary passive stereoscopic 3D projection screens. With standard electric operation and wall mounted switch or optional remote control and Da-Lite’s proprietary “Stay-Flat” masking system design, the Dual Format Imager is a great solution for ultra-large home theater installations.
