Seymour-Screen Excellence Delivers Retractable Multi-Aspect Ratio A.T. Film Screen; Sets the Standard for Integration of a Reference Theater Screen into Non-Dedicated Rooms

Ames, IA – May 20, 2013 – Seymour-Screen Excellence is now shipping its multi-format retractable (MFR) film screen – a motorized dual-roller acoustically transparent film screen outfitted with a retractable masking system to perfectly frame different aspect ratios.

The foundation of the MFR is SSE’s exclusive Enlightor-4K woven-fabric acoustically transparent film screen surface. This .98 gain surface is both ISF-certified for color purity and is the only acoustically transparent screen that has no visible holes, weave, texture, or minimum seating distance.

The MFR is sold with either a lateral system (2 vertical masks) to display 16:9 while maintaining a constant image height on a 2.35 screen, or a horizontal system (1 mask) to display 2.35 while maintaining a constant image width on a 16:9 screen.

Either of the masking options descends and ascends via a second roller (hidden in the case). SSE specializes in woven-fabric acoustically transparent film screens; all of its masks are made of a black, lightweight acoustically transparent material.

According to SSE Managing Director Chris Seymour, the company is the only brand to trim its retractable models with a fabric velvet border. Employed is the company’s proprietary Infinite Black™ material which delivers substantially more light absorbing power than that of painted borders. The material also frames the screen image with a sharp, high-contrast edge.

Exclusive to all of SSE’s retractable designs is the company’s patented Uni-tab™ system which serves to hide most of the side tensioning cables behind the borders. This continuous tension system eliminates the unsightly hourglass shape common to tab-tensioned screens while providing a completely smooth projection surface.

”The Multi-Format Retractable perfectly achieves the same performance and multiple aspect ratio conveniences of our home theater-optimized Reference Fixed-Frame series,” says Seymour. “This is a win for homeowners that want to experience these same attributes in a non-dedicated room such as a living or multipurpose room, where the film screen can drop in front of a flat panel with the speaker locations no longer an issue, and completely disappear when not in use.”

The MFR case is made from extruded aluminum and finished in choice of black, white or custom colors; additional options include black velvet or glossy automotive coatings. The case measures 5.8-inches high x 5.5-inches deep and can accommodate either on-ceiling or on-wall mounting.

With quiet 120v European 4-wire motors and optional external control box, actuating the MFR screen can be accomplished with SSE’s wall switches, infrared (IR) receivers, Vdc triggers, radio frequency (RF) receivers, RS-232 or several other special order options.

The MFR is available in sizes ranging from 70- to 150-inches wide. The models are completely built in the US and ship within 3 weeks from order. For more information visit www.seymourscreenexcellence.com.
