Rear Projection Product Ships in a Roll

  • PDF

Da-Plex Semi-Rigid

You could argue rigid rear projection can provide the best images in the industry, but there are problems getting large and heavy crates into small spaces. Introduced late last year, the Da-Plex Semi-Rigid is a rear projection screen that ships in a roll for ease of handling, transportation and installation.

The Da-Plex Semi-Rigid features Da-Lite’s high performance optical coatings designed in its R&D facility by an in-house team of chemists. The product is highly customizable in size, coating and curve radius options.

“The Da-Plex Semi-Rigid provides an easy installation experience as well as a superior image under projection. Because it ships in a 36 inch diameter roll, superior image quality is no longer dependent on where it will actually fit in a building. We hope that this will help solve some of the challenges we see with customers trying to get a screen onto a high floor,” says Melissa Rone, Senior Marketing Manager.
