Severtson Screens Folded Silver 3D Cinema Screens Now Available for Int’l Shipping

Mesa, Arizona, USA, June 25, 2014 – Severtson Screens (www.severtsonscreens.com), a global leader in innovative and quality projection screens for the cinema, commercial, pro AV, and home theater markets, is pleased to announce the new folded SēVision 3D GX line of silver cinema projection screens are now available for international shipment.

“Launched at the recent CinemaCon 2014 event to rave reviews, our new folded shipping method now makes international distribution of our industry-acclaimed SēVision 3D GX highly affordable, reducing international shipping costs by up to 70 percent,” explained Toby Severtson, president and CEO of Severtson Corp.

Added Dan Maxwell, Severston Corp. V.P. & Chief Operating Officer, “We have received numerous international orders since introduction, and our international customers are thrilled because, prior to this innovative process, shipping costs associated with such large packages as this were out-of-reach for so many. Not anymore.”

Now, Severtson Screens’ silver 3D screens can be folded and packed into a much smaller crate without any loss in structural integrity or performance abilities. Severtson’s new folded screen process not only reduces international shipping fees, the smaller packaging simplifies delivery to theaters and is more convenient for installers, as well.

The new folded line of SēVision 3D GX and Ultra Wide cinema screens is now available for delivery to international destinations, and has numerous advantages, including:
• available in standard or micro perforation
• coated surface that is harder to bruise and scuff
• small micron flake coating produces a sharper image that eliminates graininess in bright scenes
• viewing angles range from 30 to 40 degree half-gain depending on the specific screen gain requested
• use of a proprietary non-leafing flake vs. a leafing flake promotes longevity by eliminating degradation of the optical properties over time
• perfect for all large cinema applications, such as movie houses, museums, universities, etc.

According to Severtson, in the past, the idea of folding a screen for shipment, delivery, and installation has been deemed impossible because there was no method of doing it without degrading the quality and performance of the screen, or ruining it altogether.

Today, the cost offset on shipping as well as the screen’s performance and longevity increases savings for the customer. This is huge news for the international market that desires a state-of-the-art silver 3D cinema screen, but, up until now, simply could not afford the shipment and installation cost because of how such a large screen had to be prepared, packed, and shipped.

Severtson Corporation is a member of the Giant Screen Cinema Association. They have manufactured cinema screens for theaters in countries all over the world, including the United States, Mexico, Canada, Korea, Japan, Brazil, Indonesia, Singapore, Spain, Germany, France, New Zealand, Australia, Netherlands, Thailand, Scotland, China, Russia, and many more. To meet the challenge of creating extremely large screens, Severtson Corporation designed a robotic spray-arm application system to paint its high-performance optical coating in-house on screens as large as 67.75ft. x 150ft. (20.7m x 45.8m). It is currently the largest in-house cinema screen optical coating system in the world.

Approaching its 30th anniversary in 2016, Severtson Corporation continues to be a global leader in innovation and quality. The Severtson family’s extensive experience in manufacturing small home theater screens and large cinema screens has given Severtson Corporation the expertise to meet the needs of the professional and consumer AV markets for both indoor applications as well as large outdoor venues.

With its three Arizona-based production facilities and its state-of-the-art robotic application system, Severtson has massive production capabilities and an unusually wide array of screens. The screens range in size from massive movie theaters, comfortable home theaters, and everything in between.

VMP Expands Building Information Modeling (BIM) Platform with New Rack Enclosure Offerings

STEVENSVILLE, Md., May 29, 2014 — Video Mount Products (videomount.com), a leading provider of mounting solutions for the commercial, residential, security, and pro audio/video markets, is proud to announce that it has expanded its Building Information Modeling (BIM) content to now include the new EREN free standing and ERWEN wall mounted rack enclosure series. VMP has teamed with Autodesk for the past 18 months to provide BIM content for many of its most popular products on the AutoDesk Seek repository. VMP’s content is also available for download through InfoComm iQ as well as from the videomount.com website.

“The demand for rack-mounted solutions in commercial, residential, pro A/V, and security applications continues to expand, even surge in some instances,” explained Keith Fulmer, president of Video Mount Products. “The growing acceptance of Building Information Modeling in the industry coupled with our desire to help our customers and the success of our new rack enclosure solutions made it a no-brainer to incorporate the EREN and ERWEN categories into our BIM platform. If we can help save integrators time and effort per project, we will do so because it means more available time for more projects, thus contributing to a healthier bottom line for their businesses. That’s what it’s all about.”

BIM allows all the necessary elements to be integrated into a project during its initial planning stages and flow through to proposed future development, before a hammer or nail are ever used. Traditionally, building design has been largely reliant upon 2D drawings (i.e. plans, elevations, etc.) whereas Building Information Modeling extends this beyond 3D to a virtual “5D” platform by enhancing the three primary spatial dimensions (width, height, and depth) with time as the fourth dimension and cost as the fifth, making the use of BIM a crucial factor for design, implementation, and sustainability with equal importance placed upon manpower and profitability.

“By utilizing VMP’s BIM models, all the knowledge necessary to make for a successful end-result via the sharing of electronic data between all parties is at the users’ fingertips,” added Fulmer. “This results in more efficient and cost-effective planning and preemptive problem solving in real-time ‘5D’.”

Now, more than 30 BIM models are currently available for VMP products, including models for flat panel mounts, equipment racks, projector mounts, and non-penetrating roof mounts.

The latest BIM additions include the cost-effective, portable, and fully welded EREN family of 19-inch equipment rack enclosures has been designed for installations where protected components are a necessity. The EREN Series is feature rich and comes complete with integrated cooling fans and removable side panels (with optional locks) allows for the organization of multiple electronic components, while at the same time protecting them from thermal issues, as well as damage or theft.

Also included, the ERWEN Series are workhorses of a wall mounted rack enclosures. Where space is at a premium, getting equipment off the floor and on the wall is a must when floor standing equipment racks just won’t do. VMP designed the new ERWEN Series wall mounted racks for both form and functionality, especially with the security and AV installer in mind. With adjustable front and rear rails, removable hinged wall plate and a reversible glass front door, the ERWEN-12E and ERWEN-15E are the answer to the most demanding rack mount requirements.

For more information or to access VMP’s BIM models, visit AutoDesk Seek, InfoComm iQ, the Video Mount Products website, www.videomount.com, or call 877-281-2169.
