SI launches Solo wireless, Zero Edge in the palm of your hand
Screen Innovations (SI) has announced the launch of Solo & Solo Pro, a family of wireless motorised versions of the Zero Edge projection screens.
The screens can be carried in the palm of your hand, mounted nearly anywhere and feature an intelligent, lithium-powered, rechargeable motor that uses a patent pending magnetic charging system. This enables up to 500 recharge cycles and over two years of use on a single charge.
SI has added an array of options for Solo Pro, including 12 colour options hand-picked by designers, universal brackets that adapt to any 1/4-20 threaded application, quick release brackets, ceiling brackets and suction cups for mounting to windows or other smooth, flat surfaces.
“Probably the most beautiful thing about the screen is not actually the screen itself but how it seamlessly fits into its environment and more importantly, your control system. We are capable of integrating with all of the major control ecosystems, even Amazon Echo for voice activated control. To top it off, we have engineered a new control device, Solo Control, which enables a wide array of I/O ports while maintaining a completely wireless connection to the screen,” says SI chief operating officer Tom Cooley.
The new Solo line is available in Slate 1.2, which is one of SI’s ambient light rejecting screen technologies and 360, which is SI’s rear-pro flexible material, as well as standard and acoustically transparent Slate and Pure varieties.
Every Solo screen incorporates SI’s own method of tab-tensioning, which uses a computer controlled cutting table to cut the tabs into the screen material itself rather than adhering tabs after the fact.
“We have one goal – create amazing experiences. We know if we accomplish that, our dealers will thrive,” says SI president Ryan Gustafson.
