DarkStar® eFinity

 

The DarkStar® eFinity by EPV Screens represents the absolute pinnacle of ambient light rejecting technology. It features an internal-framework with the wraparound material that is better known as an EDGE FREE® design. It is a more aesthetically pleasing format and includes a sleek 9 mm frame bezel. The design blends seamlessly into any home décor.  In addition to its design qualities, the eFinity’s EDGE FREE® configuration maximizes the viewing area in a smaller spatial footprint without compromising the screen’s structural integrity. An LED backlighting kit with Infrared remote control is included at no extra charge.

This series features our ISF-Certified and award winning, DarkStar® 9 front-projection Ambient Light Rejecting (ALR) material. The DarkStar® 9 is an advanced retro-reflective, multiple-layer, optical microfilter-based viewing surface that is capable of absorbing up to 90% of in-room ambient light.  Its ISF Certification assures accurate color fidelity while providing the deepest blacks possible with an astonishing level of detail in a full 180-degree viewing angle. 

Winner of the prestigious CTA “Mark of Excellence” 2016 Product of the Year Award and highly acclaimed by numerous industry video experts, the DarkStar® 9 eFinity sets a new benchmark in front projection screens.

Projector placement

DarkStar® key guidelines for optimum performance

1. Projector must be 1.5 or greater than the width of the screen – minimum lens throw
2. Projector must be within ± 5 degrees vertical (see diagram below)
3. Ambient light must not come from the same direction as the projector’s light

Note: Do not install the projector at an angle that is greater than 5° off the vertical axis from the screen.  The ambient light filtration layer in the material is designed to absorb off-axis light rather than reflect it.
