Severtson Highlights Folded SAT-4K & Microperf Screens

Severtson Screen has carved out a nice business in the cinema screen market where their foldable SAT-4K screens offer a nice lower cost option over non-foldable options, allowing international shipping from its US manufacturing base. This folding ability can reduce the cost on international shipping by up to 70%, claims the company.

The SAT-4K and SēVision 3D GX line of cinema projection screens are also offered with their microperf technology. These smaller perforations in the screen allow more clear area than larger perforations (7% vs. 4.5%) and have better high frequency response and no moire. Specifications include:

  • Surface: SAT-4K acoustically woven screen material
  • Gain: 1.18
  • Max height: 16 ft. (expanded height availability later in 2016)
  • Max Width: nearly unlimited
  • Viewing Angle: 160 degrees
  • Flame and mildew resistant

To meet the challenge of creating extremely large screens, Severtson Corporation designed a robotic spray-arm application system to paint its high-performance optical coating in-house on screens as large as 67.75ft.x 150ft. (20.7m x 45.8m). It is currently the largest in-house cinema screen optical coating system in the world. Severtson Screens certifications and partners include Technicolor, MasterImage, Dolby, Volfoni, LightspeeD & DepthQ, and RealD. – CC
