For the past few weeks, Draper has been building up to a big announcement. We’ve dropped hints, shown glimpses, and provided a few scant clues about it. Certain members of our staff have even been threatened with possible bodily harm. Today, finally, is the big day! The day we show the world what TecVision is all about.
Although it’s been fun teasing everyone in advance of this announcement, now the real fun begins—the fun of showing you the awesome details of an innovative new product line from Draper!
Below is our press release on TecVision, and a link to the Web page explaining it all!
In recent years projectors and projection technology have been advancing quickly. Draper is taking projection screen technology another step into the future at Integrated Systems Europe 2014 with the creation of TecVision Engineered Surface Technology. Available in five exclusive formulations to start, TecVision features white surfaces with gains ranging from 1.3 to 1.9 over remarkably wide viewing cones, and grey surfaces with excellent performance under higher room light levels.
“There are few companies in the world who are experts in designing projection screen surfaces,” according to Draper company president John Pidgeon. “Most screen fabrics are made by firms whose primary business is manufacturing textiles for other purposes. We’ve made a major investment in equipment, expert personnel and research time specifically to offer this line of revolutionary new surfaces unmatched by any other screen manufacturer in the world.”
TecVision also offers a departure from typical screen production, according to Bob Mathes, AV Market Manager for Draper.
“Utilizing technologically advanced manufacturing methods, proprietary scientific formulations and establishing the highest quality standard, we are prepared to meet the rigorous demands of today’s projectors and the environments in which screens are and will be used,” Mathes says. “Rather than using “mass-production” methods in order to minimize costs, TecVision screens are individually produced; each and every screen surface is individually formulated, programmed, and manufactured with multiple checks for quality, consistency and uniformity from start to finish.”
These premium surfaces are not sold online and are only available through qualified Draper dealers. They are being seen for the first time at Integrated Systems Europe.
“We are pretty excited about TecVision,” says Pidgeon. “These five surfaces are just the start. The sky’s the limit as far as surfaces we can create to match whatever specs require.”
