Most experts agree the best way to truly enjoy formats such as 4K and 3D is in a projection-based system. Supporting the acceptance of 4K in the projection category are products like the newly announced Severtson Titanium Acoustically Transparent (TAT)-4K projection screen, now available to custom electronics dealers.

The Mesa, Ariz.-based manufacturer says the screen can be deployed in residential and commercial installations and it provides users with a woven screen product that is flame and mildew resistant to deliver years of product life. The titanium-gray screen can also be used in a variety of room lighting conditions through its gray color that is designed to maintain contrast. With its .93 gain, it can be paired with a variety of projectors without the fear of hot spotting.

“A new era of venue versatility has begun,” boasts Kirk Severtson, COO, Severtson Screens. “The TAT-4K material offers the same innovative technology as our acclaimed SAT-4K screens, but it can be used in rooms with incoming ambient light. The seamless acoustic weave and striking contrast offered by the TAT-4K is in high demand, especially for many high-end home theater and commercial applications.”

The made-in-the-U.S.A. screen product is also compatible with active 3D content and and is offered in a choice of performance levels that include Impression, Deluxe and Deluxe Curved. In addition, the Southwestern company says it can make the screens in a choice of sizes all the way up to 15-feet 10-inches in height.

“The titanium-gray shade on the TAT-4K preserves picture contrast even in rooms that are not completely dark, resulting in a crisp image that will amaze viewers,” states Severtson. “With virtually no screen size limitations, the entire sound stage can be placed directly behind the screen at the same horizontal axis, allowing the audio track to be in perfect sync with the brilliant images on display.”
