Through over a year of research and development of an acoustically transparent material, EluneVision has developed a material that meets EluneVision's standards in minimal texturing, hole size and the highest perforation density in the industry. During the entire design process, two things were paramount: produce a material capable of both displaying the full detail of 1080p and 4K resolution video sources with minimal light loss and produce a screen that is completely transparent to sound.
Reference-Class 2D and 3D Performance
The Reference Studio AudioWeave 4K material is designed to maximize detail, resolution and uniformity for both 2D and 3D projection. To get the best 3D immersive experience, the screen must be free from artifacts, hot spots and as texture-less as possible. Any flaw in the material and in the reproduction will contribute to a loss of immersion and viewer fatigue due to increased cross talk.
The projector technology today is advancing by leaps and bounds, which means that every 3-4 years is the optimum time to upgrade your projector. Because EluneVision's screens perform at the highest level, you will be able to enjoy each improvement in performance to the fullest level on the Reference Studio 4K screens. All but the most expensive competitors are currently unable to fully support a 1080p image, which means by purchasing a non-Reference screen, you are effectively wasting the performance of your 1080p projector.
Due to EluneVision's texturless surface and lambertian design, even when the resolution eventually increases to 4K pixel resolution, each pixel will be rendered accurately. Whether you are purchasing a screen to get the most performance out of your projector today, or you are purchasing a screen that will work with video resolutions of tomorrow - the Reference Studio 4K series is the best solution.
No Sparkles or Graininess - Complete Invisibility of Screen Material
Due to the use of a smooth and near perfect lambertian diffuser material, the screen has absolutely no sparkles. The screen was purposely engineered to disperse the light evenly in a hemispherical distribution, creating a perfect reproduction, as the director intended. The Reference Studio AudioWeave 4K material will easily pass any of the common sparkle tests, which include bright scenes in movies as well as sports such as hockey, football, etc. This means that viewer will always see the image displayed on the screen as the projector manufacturer intended, and will never see the annoying imperfections present on competitors’ screen materials.
Reference 2D and 3D Performance
The Reference Studio 4K series of screens is designed to maximize detail, resolution and uniformity for both 2D and 3D projection. To get the best 3D immersive experience, the screen must be free from artifacts, hot spots and textures. Any flaw in the material and in the reproduction will contribute to a loss of immersion and viewer fatigue due to increased cross talk.
Engineered for Active 3D and 2D with 1.15 Gain
With a gain of 1.15, one of the highest gains for acoustic weave materials; the Reference Studio AudioWeave 4K delivers high contrast images without any of the drawbacks of high gain screens such as hot spotting, texturing and graininess. The higher gain helps with brightness of the projected image and counters the loss of brightness due to active 3D shutter glasses.
Unmatched Acoustic Transparency
Audio Transparency is the most important aspect of any Acoustic Weave screen. The ideal scenario is to have the screen material let all of the audio frequencies pass through it with zero attenuation. Of course, this is the engineering ideal, and cannot be achieved in actual practice. However, with careful design, a very small and inaudible linear attenuation with no comb filtering is possible. This is what the Reference Studio AudioWeave 4K material achieves.
Near Perfect Pixel Geometry
The extremely fine woven weave leaves pixel geometry perfectly intact. Why is this important? With 1080p projectors now standard and 4K projectors on the horizon, EluneVision’s material ensures that the effective resolution remains at 1080p, while other (more expensive) competitors degrade the pixel geometry to the point that the effective resolution is no longer even close to 1080p. Due to the fact that there is near-zero texturing and perfect preservation of detail clarity, the EluneVision Reference AudioWeave 4K material will perfectly resolve 4K resolution in both today’s high end and future 4K projectors, saving you a screen upgrade.
Colour Neutrality and Accuracy
EluneVision’s new Reference Studio AudioWeave 4K material is designed specifically to achieve the highest level of colour reproduction. To achieve this, the material is designed for a completely neutral colour reproduction. The lambertian diffuser property, in addition to a specially designed white base colour, maintains colour accuracy across the entire colour gamut. Many other projection materials in the market today will exhibit a shift in hue, either to the blue, green or red. This creates an unnatural balance to the colours and will decrease the colour uniformity and vibrancy.
Seamless Video Reproduction with Contrast Enhancing Sound Transparent Black Backing
The black backing is one of the most important aspects of an acoustic weave fixed frame screen. All acoustic weave screens will leak a bit of light due to the perforations in the screen. This light can then hit the surfaces behind the screen and bounce back into the material and thus lowering black levels.
To combat this problem, a specially designed, highly porous and low-density black backing is used to absorb the light leakage and provide better black levels. Not only does this enhance video performance, but as demonstrated above in the audio section, it will not negatively impact the audio performance of your home theater setup.
