Da-Lite produces of high-quality commercial and residential projection screens.
Da-Lite’s has added a new 10-foot SightLineTM Cable Drop option for its Tensioned Advantage® and Advantage electric screens. You can see it displayed at Legrand|AV’s booth, #2201, during InfoComm 2023.
While SightLine’s standard 70″, aircraft-grade cable drop screen feature covers most custom drop-sizing scenarios, the new 10′ drop is designed to provide more flexibility for unique installations, such as unusually high ceilings
Designed to offer enhanced flexibility for distinctive installations like high ceilings, the new 10-foot drop from Da-Lite aims to provide more options. With the introduction of SightLine, there is no longer a requirement to measure the drop distance prior to ordering, streamlining the specification and ordering process. This not only simplifies the overall procedure but also adds to the “wow” factor of the product.
Da-Lite continues to make it even easier for integrators to solve challenges with the new 10-foot SightLine™ Cable Drop option available with its Tensioned Advantage® and Advantage electric screens, which will be showcased in Legrand | AV Booth 2201 at InfoComm 2023 in Orlando, Florida. While SightLine’s standard 70″, aircraft-grade cable drop screen feature covers most custom drop-sizing scenarios, the new 10′ drop is designed to provide more flexibility for unique installations, such as unusually high ceilings, where additional drop may be required.
“When we launched the SightLine feature last year, it became an instant success, with integrators asking for a longer cable drop to fit even more applications,” said Brian Schwartz, Product Manager, Da-Lite, a brand of Legrand | AV. “SightLine not only looks amazing but also eliminates the often imperfect task of measuring the drop distance before ordering, which is made even more difficult when there are tall ceilings or architectural details to work around. Now they can use SightLine for ease of specification and ordering while also really amping up the wow factor.”
SightLine has taken the industry by storm with its innovative approach to eliminating unsightly black drops and creating a screen that appears to float in the room. The single-roller suspension system features three or four thin cables that now accommodate drop distances up to 70″ (standard) or 10′ (optional) between the ceiling and the top of the screen. It preserves a room’s architectural integrity and creates usable space above the viewing area for components such as Vaddio cameras and/or speakers. With the ability to dial in the exact viewing height on-site, this flexible system makes specifying, ordering, and installing a screen quick and easy. There is no need to calculate the drop distance ahead of time. Additionally, the cable height can be adjusted on-site for any future projector upgrades, allowing end users to maximize their screen investment and cut down on labor.
During the show, Da-Lite will also feature a UTB Contour 21:9 Ultrawide Format fixed-frame screen to demonstrate a more immersive and equitable meeting experience for end users. The brand offers a complete line of electric and fixed-frame screens in 21:9 Ultrawide Format standard part numbers.
