E4 Product Launch Preview: Draper Curved Screens

The E4 AV Tour continues grow as a launch for new products. At this year’s San Francisco event on April 6th, Draper will release brand new curved frame versions of the Clarion and Onyx screens. It’s part of Drapers’ move to respond to the increasing need for customization in the market, both for home theater and commercial applications such as simulation, or applications requiring edge blending.

“Curved screens are not brand new of course,” says Jim Hoodlebrink, Rental/IDS Manager at Draper. “However as they rapidly grow in popularity Draper has responded to the market by bringing out a more decorative frame and the ability to custom curve the screen to fit the customers’ needs.” The integrated decorative frame–in black velvet–saves the step of fitting a cover onto the typical extruded aluminum frame, insuring a nicer finish, and the ability to customize the screen curvature can be make-or-break for more

Access XL

Draper has expanded the company’s patented Access screen line of motorized, ceiling-recessed projection screens. Access XL screens are offered in a range of large sizes not previously available in Access screen models.

The Access XL is available in non-tensioned sizes up to 20 feet wide and tab tensioned sizes up to 18 feet wide, and uses the same sliding adjustable mounting brackets as other Access screens.

Part of Draper’s Conceal/Reveal™ line of products, the more
