Screen Innovations (SI) has released the Reference Motorized II screen, which features a new Electronic Solutions Inc. (ESI) high-speed motor with motor noise of only 3db over average home’s noise, according to the company.
The Reference Motorized II has eliminated the need for a flush-mount chassis. Up until now, the industry standard has been selling a separate chassis to put the box in, which is both costly and impractical. With SI’s new Reference Motorized II, the installer can either add flush-mount plates at the bottom or add the décor plate for external installation. Pricing remains the same either way, while eliminating the need for a second box.
According to the company, new electronic illuminated set-top buttons eliminate the hassle of allen screws, making installation easier. The Reference Motorized II’s new in-roller controls now "include" a 12-volt trigger, IR remote, and wall switch. RS232 and RF are available and are compatible with AMX, Crestron, and Lutron.
SI’s motorized projection screen mounting brackets give installers the flexibility to mount on-wall, on-ceiling, in-ceiling-top-mount, and in-ceiling-side-mount. This new design allows for incremental adjustment both vertically and horizontally after the screen is mounted.
The Reference Motorized II is available with many of SI’s HD screen materials, including the Gamma HD, Solar HD, Lunar HD, Gamma Maestro HD, and Lunar Maestro HD. Custom screen sizes are available in one inch increments and the unit comes standard with a 24-inch black screen drop (up to six feet with custom orders).
The Reference Motorized II will be released May 1.
