Screen Innovations (SI) has introduced a completely re-designed version of its Solo motorized screen. With its small cassette, Solo was designed to fit into the design of a room and was capable of being easily carried and installed in less than five minutes by a single person. The Solo 2 family is suited to continue that legacy, with an even more compact cassette design that is 17 percent smaller than the original, but with a wider array of options such as sizes up to 160 inches diagonal and nearly any power option imaginable.
SI has continued the rechargeable power option, as well as the existing wired low-voltage option, and has added wired AC in Solo 2 along with several control connectivity options such as RTS and RS485. Additionally, Solo 2 is capable of reverse orientation — a requested feature that enables users to drop their screen in front of an existing flat-panel or wall-art without obstruction concerns.
In addition to the design-oriented features of the original Solo screens, such as 12-designer selected color options, one of the most notable features was the rechargeable motor option, a patent-pending design that uses a magnetic charging port to recharge a lithium-powered motor. For the rechargeable option, running wire is not necessary, and recharging is only required once every two years by “clicking” the magnetic cable to the charging port.
Material options include SI’s optical (ambient-light rejecting) material and “Short Throw.” Additionally, SI has included its highly refined white and gray materials, also rated for 8k projection.
SI is accepting Solo 2 pre-orders now and will begin shipping starting on April 2, 2019.
