Screen Innovations Black Diamond Zero Edge Screen Preview
The Black Diamond Zero Edge Screen takes Screen Innovations' Black Diamond technology (which allows you to watch HD images in full ambient lighting) and alters the form factor for a whole new, contemporary look. The Zero Edge has only a quarter-inch (1/4") bezel around the circumference of the Black Diamond surface. A typical screen has anywhere from 2" to 4" of felt or border. The thing is, if you have an installation where you can dial in the mounting position just right, you really don't need much bezel to compensate for any potential keystoning or misalignment. This screen really produces the look of a super thin-bezel television that is just floating off the wall. Seeing it live at CEDIA, it's hard to not think it's rear projection or simply a DLP television embedded in a hidden drywall alcove.
Screen Innovations is billing the Black Diamond Zero Edge as the "first affordable large flat-panel alternative". Honestly, we get it - it really does take you to a level where a 100-inch screen with excellent dynamic range and black levels is truly possible with the aesthetic of a flat screen television. The new screen is available in custom diagonal sizes up to 142". Among the multiple mounting options include recessed (unframed), flush-to, projected off the wall, or flying from cables for a variety of incredibly sleek looks. There's also no assembly required - you just just unpack the screen and hang it up. Check out the screen in action here:
