dnp’s SUPERNOVA™ EPIC SCREEN WINS 2007 EXC!TE AWARD

The ISF-Certified Supernova Curved Screen Continues dnp‘s Award-Winning Legacy

COSTA MESA, CA — September 18, 2007 – dnp denmark, the world’s leading supplier of optical projection screen technology and developer of the first-ever screen that allows viewing in brightly lit environments, announced that its revolutionary Supernova Epic Screen was the recipient of a 2007 Exc!te Award presented by Custom Retailer magazine at CEDIA EXPO 2007 in Denver, Colorado. The Exc!te Awards honor products that best exemplify the excitement and growth of the custom installation and consumer electronics industries. Winners are chosen by Custom Retailer’s editors and contributors, as well as selected retailers and industry observers.

Designed to be used in the very finest dedicated home theaters, the new Supernova Epic Screen provides uncompromised widescreen reproduction of movies in all aspect ratios displaying superior high-contrast images in 100% neutral color. Maintaining a constant image height as in a movie theater, the Supernova Epic‘s motorized masking system is fully adjustable from closed to 2.40:1 settings delivering the ultimate viewing experience for even the most demanding videophile.

“The Epic Screen integrates the benefits of our patented Supernova Screen technology with the advantages of a concave design to give viewers a superior image,” stated Manfred Freiberger, senior account manager for dnp USA. “We are very proud to be recognized by Custom Retailer‘s Exc!te Awards.”

The True Cinematic Experience

The Supernova Epic Screen has succeeded in bringing a true cinematic experience into the home. It offers the flexibility of beautifully displaying all formats from 4:3 to ultra-wide 2.40:1 Cinemascope with enhanced resolution, contrast and 100% color accuracy. When used with a projector with an anamorphic lens, the Supernova Epic maintains full image height and unwanted black bars on the top and bottom of the screen are eliminated.

Just as in a real movie theater, the Supernova Epic‘s electronically controlled curtains silently glide into place to maintain constant image height and a superior viewing experience. The curtains are closer to the screen as opposed to other similar products; hence, no shadows detract from the image. And when the film is done, the curtains glide fully closed again.

Award-Winning Technology

The technology used to develop Supernova is based on an award-winning high-contrast filter that allows the projected image to be optimally reflected from the screen. Thanks to the optical Supernova qualities, the screen delivers better contrast in dark rooms than standard front screens. This is due to the fact that retro illumination – where light from the screen image is reflected back from the room and onto the screen – is absorbed by the Epic Screen. When watching a movie there‘s no indication of screen surface texture, shimmer or speckle, which creates a much deeper and extremely pure image.

Supreme black levels are balanced with a precisely calibrated brightness level to create vivid images with full color saturation regardless of viewing position. With the Supernova Epic Screen you get a more dynamic image with truer, better, deeper colors. Black is more black and high definition movies are displayed in their full resolution, the way they were intended to be seen.

The Supernova Epic will be available in standard sizes: 8‘, 10‘, 12‘ and 13‘. dnp will also accommodate custom orders to match a specific customer need. The screen material has been certified by the Imaging Science Foundation (ISF) for exceeding the benchmarks of quality that define the best in video performance available for consumers.

The Supernova Epic Screen will be available in November 2007.
