SI’s New ‘Solo Pro’ with ALR is ‘World’s First’ Motorized Screen for Ultra-Short-Throw Projectors

Screen Innovations CEO Ryan Gustafson shows how Solo Pro battery-powered motorized screen performs well in bright spaces with ultra-short-throw projectors.

Screen Innovations's new “Solo” motorized video-projection screen introduced last year at CEDIA was a crowd favorite. For CEDIA Expo 2018, SI takes the portable, battery-powered screen to new levels, so to speak.

The new Solo Pro features ambient light-rejecting (ALR) screen material tailored for short-throw projectors, making it ideal for bright spaces.

Solo was developed with flexibility and portability in mind, so the Pro version makes sense. Users can tote the screen and small projector around, and build a mobile theater on-the-fly in virtually any environment.

SI says the product took 1 1/2 years of development and is the “world's first ultra short-throw motorized projection screen … patent pending.”
