Elite Screens is a Garden Grove, California video manufacturer that designs and produces a vast product line of affordable products for the residential and commercial markets.

Its custom install brand, Elite Prime Vision, has announced its latest screen product, the new DarkStar 9 ambient light rejecting screen.

Elite Prime Vision developed the screen to provide dealers a greater choice of product solutions to meet the varying demands of installing projection systems in residential environments.

“The DarkStar 9 is not designed to be the next step up—-but rather an alternate solutions that ensures that our DarkStar series caters to all aspects of our customer viewing preferences,” says Jeff Klida, vice president of sales for Elite Prime Vision. “The DarkStar 9 offers the same micro-filter design for eliminating the wash out effects of ambient light but tones down its reflectivity in favor of enhancing color temperature for those customers seeking the SMPTE .004 standard.”

Explaining the product in greater detail, the company states the screen is equal in quality to its other DarkStar products. Dealers can use the DarkStar 9 in a variety of room environments to maintain contrast and color fidelity.

Highlighting the major difference between the DarkStar 9 and the original DarkStar screen, Elite points out the DarkStar 9 employs a .9 gain, while the original DarkStar utilizes a 1.4 gain.

Both screen products are engineered for D65 color neutrality. Through its compliance of the SMPTE .004 standard, the DarkStar 9 is able to achieve color gamut performance that exceeds the REC. 709 standard for the reproduction of HD content.

Pricing for the DarkStar 9 starts at $3,100. It is available in a choice of sizes and aspect ratios that includes 2.40:1.
