Supernova features an active highcontrast filter that allows
the projected image to be reflected while effectively absorbing incident light
from other angles. This patented technology means the screen is virtually
unaffected by diffused ambient light and is ideal for bright environments.
Award-winning Supernova Screens combine the superior image quality of optical
rear projection with the minimal space requirements and installation ease of
front projection. The Supernova One's advanced optical technology opens up vast
new opportunities for quality viewing in brightly lit surroundings such as
conference rooms, shopping centres and exhibition halls. For home entertainment
purposes, it eliminates the need for a dedicated darkened room.
Conventional front screens operate with contrast ratios in the range of 2-3:1
at 500 lux ambient light and are traditionally associated with dark rooms,
curtains and window blinds. They reflect ambient light as much as the
projector's light, creating poor contrast levels. These low contrast ratios
often cause eyestrain - and make it hard for the audience to concentrate.
The Supernova One is the world's first front projection screen to break the
15:1 contrast barrier, which is the empirical standard for acceptable contrast.
It delivers clear, crisp images with full colour saturation and prevents
eyestrain regardless of viewing position.
