The dnp Supernova Epic CS incorporate a curved screen with optical front-projection screen technology. It is designed to support all video formats, including the ultra-wide Cinemascope 2.40:1.
dnp’s ISF-approved front-projection optical technology features high-contrast filters that enable the projected image to be optimally reflected from the screen, while effectively deflecting ambient light and absorbing overhead light. The result, according to the company, is an enhanced image that is two-times brighter, and provides up to seven times higher contrast ratio than conventional screens.
“The dnp Supernova Epic and Epic CS are the ultimate front projection screens for home theater applications,” senior U.S. executive, Manfred Freiberger, said. “The Epic CS combines all the attributes of the Supernova Epic but without the electronically controlled masking system. The perfectly curved screen enhances the perceived depth and uniformity of the image, resulting in the ultimate viewing experience — a movie theater in your home. The curvature of the screen also eliminates pincushion distortion caused by a combination of wide images and use of an anamorphic projector lens.”
The Supernova Epic CS is available in screen sizes from 96 inches to 156 inches, and offers accessories including a wall mount and an optional floor stand. The 96-inch screen has an MRSP of $8,248 (U.S.)
