Draper Introduces New Engineered Screen Technology

(Spiceland, Ind.) – In recent years projectors and projection technology have been advancing quickly. Draper is taking projection screen technology another step into the future at Integrated Systems Europe 2014 with the creation of TecVision Engineered Surface Technology. Available in five exclusive formulations to start, TecVision features white surfaces with gains ranging from 1.3 to 1.9 over remarkably wide viewing cones, and grey surfaces with excellent performance under higher room light levels.

“There are few companies in the world who are experts in designing projection screen surfaces,” according to Draper company president John Pidgeon. “Most screen fabrics are made by firms whose primary business is manufacturing textiles for other purposes. We’ve made a major investment in equipment, expert personnel and research time specifically to offer this line of revolutionary new surfaces unmatched by any other screen manufacturer in the world.”

TecVision also offers a departure from typical screen production, according to Bob Mathes, AV Market Manager for Draper.

“Utilizing technologically advanced manufacturing methods, proprietary scientific formulations and establishing the highest quality standard, we are prepared to meet the rigorous demands of today’s projectors and the environments in which screens are and will be used,” Mathes says. “Rather than using “mass-production” methods in order to minimize costs, TecVision screens are individually produced; each and every screen surface is individually formulated, programmed, and manufactured with multiple checks for quality, consistency and uniformity from start to finish.”

These premium surfaces are not sold online and are only available through qualified Draper dealers. They are being seen for the first time at Integrated Systems Europe.

“We are pretty excited about TechVision,” says Pidgeon. “These five surfaces are just the start. The sky’s the limit as far as surfaces we can create to match whatever specs require.”

About Draper
Founded in 1902 as a window shade manufacturer, Draper, Inc., is a Spiceland, Ind.-based manufacturer of projection screens and lifts and mounts for projectors and displays, providing AV related equipment for over half a century.

Draper has focused a lot of resources on product design, with innovations like the Access family of motorized screens, improved tab tensioning system and revolutionary modular portable screens.
Two and a half years ago we moved our primary focus to the surfaces themselves, and their optical performance. We built a world class testing lab, and worked with consultants and key suppliers to identify and refine ingredients to improve the optical performance of our surfaces. Since then we have introduced many new surfaces to address specific needs in the marketplace. And we developed the new standard in surface planning tools, the Draper Pro Screen Calculator.

Draper products are sold to dealers and shipped throughout the United States and to more than 100 countries. In addition to its Spiceland, Indiana headquarters, Draper, Inc. has sales offices in Placentia, CA and in Blackwood, Gwent, United Kingdom. Draper also has four wholly owned subsidiaries: Draper Group Ltd., a sales and warehouse facility in Corby, Northamptonshire, United Kingdom, and three manufacturing companies in Sweden: Draper Europe AB, a leading European projection screen manufacturer; SMS Smart Media Solutions AB, a leading European provider of video projector and flat screen mounts; and Evoko Unlimited AB, provider of the Evoko Room Manager.
