Top projection screen manufacturer, dnp denmark, has announced that it is to officially launch its dnp Supernova STS screen at the 2013 InfoComm Show, being held in Orlando, Florida, next month.

The new screen is a unique addition to the brand’s range, particularly in that it has a built-in Fresnel lens structure, incorporating optical technology that is used to focus projected light. The screen has been designed specifically for use with ultra-short-throw projectors.

The Supernova STS screen works at its best with projectors with a lens-throw ratio of between 0.21 and 0.271:1. In comparison to other traditional white front projection screens, the Supernova STS screen gives better contrast and colour saturation via its built-in lens technology.

The sophisticated lens structure comprises six optical layers that are put together with UV-moulding and aluminium evaporation processes. The half-circular Fresnel lens lies at the heart of the screen, reflecting the lightbeam from the projector and sending it out towards the viewers. The efficiency of the light transmission means that the screen has darker black levels while not diminishing the brightness of the white.

The screen comes in a standard 100-inch, 16:9 format, although custom sizes are available upon request. It is mounted on a thin black frame, with a hard-coat front and a rigid aluminium back plate.
