Mesa, Arizona, USA, March 18, 2014 – Severtson Screens (www.severtsonscreens.com), a global leader in innovative and quality projection screens for the cinema, commercial, pro AV, movie mix studio, and home theater markets, is pleased to announce the launch of the new folded S?Vision 3D GX line of silver cinema projection screens at CinemaCon 2014, held in Las Vegas, Nev. from March 25-27, 2014 at Caesars Palace (Severtson booth 2010A, MasterImage 3D Inc. booth 2706A, and Livorno Room). Severtson’s new folded shipping method now makes international distribution of the industry-acclaimed S?Vision 3D GX highly affordable, reducing international shipping costs by up to 70 percent. Folded screens are now available for international shipment.
”Purchasing our industry-acclaimed S?Vision 3D GX was cost prohibitive for theaters and large studios outside of the U.S. due to the shipping costs associated with such large packages,” explained Ron Severtson, Severtson Corp. president and CEO. “Now our silver 3D screens can be folded and packed into a much smaller crate without any loss in structural integrity or performance abilities. Our 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 S?Vision 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 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.
“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,” Severtson added. “Not anymore.”
Severtson continued, “The cost offset on shipping as well as the screen’s performance and longevity increases savings for the customer. This is a game changer 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.”
