projection screens

The dnp Supernova front projection Screen is the world's first optical 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.

Big screens with lots of contrast

Featuring an active high-contrast filter, the screen reflects the projected image while effectively absorbing incident light from other angles. The result is vivid, sharp pictures with up to 7 times higher contrast and 2 times brighter images than conventional front screens.

dnp Supernova front projection Screens is available in a wide variety of finishes, formats and sizes, it’s easy to find a screen that fits both your technical needs and installation environment.

Benifits with front and rear projection screens

Front projection screen in brightly-lit rooms

The award-winning dnp Supernova Screen is the world’s first front projection screen designed for brightly-lit environments. For the first time ever, you don’t have to dim the lights when using a front projection solution. And with its elegant design and generous dimensions, Supernova is sure to make an impact in virtually any viewing environment.
With up to 7 times the contrast and double the image brightness of standard front projection screens, Supernova Screens provide superior image quality, even in high ambient light. That means you can maintain eye contact with your audience during your presentation. Read their facial expressions. Clarify a point by drawing on a whiteboard. Hold up a product sample for everyone to see. Make sure viewers stay alert and involved.

Supernova Screens are ideal anywhere that requires a superior front presentation solution and where a traditional flat screen TV is not big enough. The series is made up of three overall types of optical screens, Fixed and Retractable with new models constantly in development. Available in a wide variety of finishes, formats and sizes, it’s easy to find a screen that fits both your technicalneeds and installation environment. Supernova is compatible with all standard projectors and is easy to install and maintain.

 

 

Big screen projection principle

Supernova combines the superior image quality normally limited to optical rear projection with the minimal space requirements and installation ease of front projection screens. In other words, you get the best of both worlds.

Supernova’s unique combination of technologies actively enhances both image contrast and brightness – resulting in up to 7 times the contrast and double the image brightness of traditional front projection screens. Not only does that mean more vivid colours and more detailed images, it also means more economy: with Supernova’s increased brightness you’ll only need a small projector.

Supernova Screens feature an active high-contrast filter that reflects the projected image while effectively absorbing available light from other angles. This unique technology means the screen is virtually unaffected by diffused ambient light and is ideal for bright environments.

 

Supernova front projection screen technologies

dnp Supernova Screens feature three types of optical technologies. Black Filter Technology, which is suited to Standard and Long Throw projection; Fresnel Lens Technology, and Black/White lenticular technology, which are designed to complement Short Throw projection solutions.

Black Filter Technology

The Supernova Screens’ original innovation, Black Filter Technology uses a black lenticular lens structure to absorb light from a steep incident angle. It enhances contrast and makes the screen extremely tolerant to ambient light. Black Filter Technology works well with both standard and long throw projection, but is not suitable for short throw since incident light from the projector gets absorbed and is not reflected to the audience. Thanks to two different gain materials - Supernova 08-85 and Supernova 23-23 - Black Filter Technology can be successfully used in most installations.

Supernova 08-85
This ISF-certified screen material features true deep black levels, high contrast and extreme viewing angles. It is ideal for use in low-light environments but can also be used in bright rooms when combined with a more powerful projector. ISF (Imaging Science Foundation) certification defines the very highest quality of displays.

The first two digits represent the peak-gain of the screen material (08=0.8). The last two digits represent the horizontal half-gain angle (85=85 degrees).

Supernova 23-23
With its ‘second generation’ reflector, this new generation high gain (NGHG) material offers improved brightness uniformity, improved horizontal viewing and almost eliminates shimmering all together. It performs superbly in both dark and bright rooms with a wide range of projectors, large and small. This is the ideal screen material for environments with standard viewing angles such as Conference Rooms, auditoriums, churches, Point of Sales (POS) and Point of Information (POI) applications, where you want to save on the projector but not on a high quality image.

The first two digits represent the peak-gain of the screen material (23=2.3). The last two digits represent the horizontal half-gain angle (23=23 degrees).

 

 

Fresnel Lens Technology

This technology is optimized for ultra-short-throw projectors. It uses a half-circle Fresnel lens to direct incident light from the projector towards the audience in front of the screen. Based on the same concept as dnp applies in rear-projection, it works by causing the active “front side” of the lens to reflect the incident light (which enters from a steep angle) straight out from the screen toward the audience, instead of reflecting to the ceiling or the floor, where it is not needed. By doing this, the screen increases the brightness and/or increases uniformity compared to other projection screens.

When the projector is below the screen, the ambient light coming from a different angle than the projected light enters the passive “back side” of the lens and is not reflected towards the audience. This increases the image quality dramatically compared to traditional projection screens, where ambient light is reflected with the projected light and washes out colours and reduces contrast.

The lens is protected with a surface coating, making this screen technology suitable for touch and interactive uses.

 

Black/White Lenticular Technology

This optical technology has a triangular, black, horizontal lenticular structure, and is coated with reflecting material on the side facing the UST projector. The black topside of the reflector absorbs ambient light from above, whereas light from the projector is reflected by the white coating and directed towards the audience.

The screen material offers best performance and image contrast when the projector is below the screen and the reflector is pointing downwards. Note that the lens is not protected with a surface coating, as in the case of the Fresnel lens technology screen material, making this screen technology unsuitable for touch and interactive uses.

Black/white Lenticular screen material is available in sheets. It can be rolled for easy transportation and laminated on a substrate or tensioned for perfect flatness.
