In recent years projectors and projection technology have been advancing quickly. Draper has taken projection screen technology another step towards the future with the creation of TecVision Engineered Surface Technology. TecVision can be seen in action during CEDIA 2014.
Available in six exclusive formulations for now, TecVision features white surfaces with gains ranging from 1.0 to 1.9 over remarkably wide viewing cones, and grey surfaces with excellent performance under higher room light levels. TecVision is 4K ready, and five of the new surfaces are certified by the Imaging Science Foundation for excellent color reproduction and fidelity.
“There are few companies in the world who are experts in designing projection screen surfaces,” according to Draper company president John Pidgeon. “Most screen fabrics are made by firms whose primary business is manufacturing textiles for other purposes. We’ve made a major investment in equipment, expert personnel and research time specifically to offer this line of revolutionary new surfaces unmatched by any other screen manufacturer in the world.”
TecVision also offers a departure from typical screen production, according to Bob Mathes, AV/video sales and marketing manager for Draper. “Utilizing technologically advanced manufacturing methods, proprietary scientific formulations and establishing the highest quality standard, we are prepared to meet the rigorous demands of today’s projectors and the environments in which screens are and will be used,” Mathes said. “Rather than using “mass-production” methods in order to minimize costs, TecVision screens are individually formulated and programmed, and manufactured with multiple checks for quality, consistency and uniformity from start to finish.”
These premium surfaces are not sold online and are only available through qualified Draper dealers.
“We are pretty excited about TecVision,” shared Pidgeon. “These surfaces are just the start. The sky’s the limit as far as surfaces we can create to match whatever specs require.”
