Screen Innovations has just announced the expansion of its low-voltage motorized screen lineup at this year’s CEDIA Expo, having originally developed the tech specifically for the custom installer channel in 2017. This motor technology has now been incorporated into the company’s entire line of motorized screens.
According to the Austin-based screen manufacturers, motorized screens powered by “structured” cable are favored by integrators around the world as a result of global standardization. SI’s new low-voltage system improves both versatility of, and compatibility with, any type of low-voltage wire.
As well as evolving its own low-voltage technology, SI has expanded the maximum size of its motorized screens for sizes up to 16 feet wide and 10 feet tall. SI has combined Slate XL – which was developed from the the existing Black Diamond technology – with the large motorized system to create what SI says is “the number one motorized screen solution that consistently delivers repeatable, reliable results and provides a true solution for large environments with ambient light.”
To extend the company’s push for global standards, SI has added the Zigbee 3.0 screen to its Solo line of ultra-compact screens. SI’s Zigbee 3.0 wireless system is a complete ecosystem in itself enabling secure multi-way communication over a mesh network.
