The Adjustable Ratio Theater (ART) is the largest of the Seymour-Screen’s three masking screen platforms, enabling build-on-wall masking up to 20-feet high, available in 2- or 4-way masking, with removable velvet fascia and 4:3 ratio with masking up to 120 inches per side.
At its largest, inclusive of masking, ART spans 20-feet tall x 30-feet wide with an image width of 350 inches. ART offers unlimited intermediate masking panel positions including all the way down to 4:3.
The design of ART allows the installer to build the screen on the wall, as opposed to the traditional method of assembling on the floor, then lifting and hanging. ART’s components are not required to be shipped in wooden crates. Additionally, certain size film screens — whether received onsite pre-assembled or not — can be difficult to negotiate corners or floors to reach the cinema room. ART solves these issues.
ART utilizes an 8.8-inch frame that is built in sections on the wall. It is finished by a removable 8.9-inch velvet fascia. ART’s motorized masking assemblies — which utilize Seymour-Screen Excellence’s sheer black A.T. masking panels and silent motorized assemblies — are mated to the frame. For extra rigidity, pure carbon fiber bars are utilized in the assemblies. ART is available with the company’s Enlightor Neo and PRO A.T. film screen surfaces, both of which are seamless, and utilize the company’s traditional grip channel approach.
ART has been nominated for a 2019 CEDIA Expo Best New Product Award and will be demonstrated at Seymour-Screen Excellence’s CEDIA Expo exhibit, Sound Room 10.
ART is available now. Options include 2-way masking (side masking panels for constant height, or top/bottom panels for constant width) or 4-way independent masking. Image widths range from 160 inches to 350 with custom sizes available. MSRP ranges from $26K to $142K depending on size. Motor control cards/ boxes and IR, 12V, and RS-232 control accessories and installation are extra.
