LIGHTS-UP HOME CINEMA
Smart Digital Australia Pty Ltd has been appointed the exclusive Australian distributor for Mocomtech Co Ltd of Seoul South Korea. Mocom manufactures super bright projection screens with ambient light rejection technology, achieving an 18x gain — so bright, indeed, that the screen is suited to highly-lit areas in schools, trade shows, bars and restaurants, even shopping centres and retail environments.
But Smart Digital says they can also be eective in homes where darker conditions can’t be achieved.
“Now home theatre can be screened with the lights on!”, says Smart Digital, claiming the results are “twice the brightness of TV screens”, though presumably that result will be projector-dependent. Mocom screens also incorporate speciallydesigned and optically-precise precise lens-like curvature that virtually eliminates hot spotting, while diusing ambient lights. This curvature is achieved using a massive precision lens tool nearly a foot thick and weighing 10 tons; milled from a single metal ingot, the company says this took several years to complete.
Mocom’s Solstice screen (pictured) is a rigid fixed design ranging in size from 80 inches to 240 inches, claimed as the largest single-screen optical solution in the world. More information from Smart Digital Australia: www.smartdigital.com.au
Daylight projection? Mocom’s high-gain screens (Solstice pictured) may make it feasible.
