Superior Projection Screen Surface
The material on a Tab Tension screen is not only pulled down by the weight of the bar but also from the left and right side by a Nylon string. The string is periodically connected to the material via small “Tabs”, hence the name Tab Tension.
Unlike a standard screen, a Tab Tension screen has a flexible material so that it can be pulled taught from all sides. The Grandview Cyber screens have a unique ratchet mechanism at each end of weighted bar so that the tensioning strings can be easily adjusted. The US made material is optimised for home cinema use, producing a high contrast and uniform reflectivity. A black PVC backing prevents light leakage so that the screen can be positioned in front of a window.
Built in Infra-red remote control and projector trigger
All Grandview Cyber Tab Tensioned electric screens feature built in infra-red remote control and come with a simple hand held remote. The IR receiver is located on the front of the curved case but should the screen be installed behind a pelmet or recessed into the ceiling, a small external IR eye is included. Also included is a 12volt trigger input, this allows the screen to be activated from any projector or surround sound amp with a 12volt output. A 10m mono mini jack cable is supplied to connect the screen to a 12volt output device.
Optional End Cap
Grandview now offer an IP control option for the electric and tab tensioned screens. The electronics in the end cap will also allow the screen to be operated via infra red and closed contact operation. This is an additional cost which should be ordered in advance.
Case and Motor Design
The aluminium diamond white case has an elegant curved profile making it one of the nicest looking screens on the market. The rigid sturdy design keeps the internal roller perfectly straight and any motor noise to a minimum. The Grandview Cyber series projector screens all use SOMFY motors, the same motors found in the likes of Dalite and Stuart cinema screens.
