SI Ships Wireless Motorized Projection Screen

Screen Innovations (SI) has announced that Solo, the wireless motorized projection screen it unveiled at CEDIA 2017, is now available.

SI introduced Solo with one of CEDIA’s more memorable demos by suction cupping the retractable screen onto the side of a vintage VW van to show off its mount-anywhere capabilities.

The screen is a rollable version of SI’s Zero Edge design that retracts into a sleek motorized cassette powered by a lithium-ion battery said to last up to 2 years on a single charge. Recharging is facilitated via a patent-pending magnetic charging cable that clicks into the bottom edge of the housing.

SI offers a selection of mounting accessories — including those suction cups and a universal locking bracket for custom mounting — as well as an optional wireless remote control system. The system can also be integrated with Amazon Echo smart devices to enable voice control of the screen.

Two versions of the screen are available. Solo uses the company’s Slate ambient light-rejecting (ALR) screen and is offered in 80-, 90-, and 100-inch sizes. Solo Pro is available in custom sizes up to 120 inches with a choice of eight screen materials — including acoustically transparent versions — from the company’s Slate and Pure lines; a 360 screen designed for front and back viewing is also available. The Solo Pro cassette is available in 12 colors and has a 24-volt hardwired motor option.

Prices start at $1,600.

SI also introduced an Online Screen Builder Tool to help consumers pick the right screen and receive a price quote from a local retailer within minutes.

Thanks S&V for guiding me to SI Solo 'portable' projector screen.
I've been racking my head on how to add a screen in front of my 65" TV in my family room.
My wife nixed ceiling mount for both projector and screen.
The projector install is an easy fixed with a sturdy oversize shelf mounted on the back wall of my family room.
The Solo screen mounted on the suction cup (steep $400) bracket is my saving grace.
I have a custom Mahogany wood wall unit that houses the TV and all A/V gear. The Solo will be set on the the Wall unit only at night for watching movies and on the day on a rare daylight sports event (great that the Solo comes with SI Slate 1.2 ALR material).
As our family room is flooded with Sunlight during day hours (we have over 20' of windows on three sides). The blinds will only mitigate the sunlight, the 1.2 gain ALR material will do the rest.
S&V does it again pointing me in the right direction.
I also have to thank who have done some fantastic comparison reviews on ALR screen.
