Seymour-Screen Excellence Brings to Market its First Acoustically Transparent Ambient Light-Rejecting Film Screen The Ambient-Visionaire Black 0.8MP Micro-Perf projection screen surface boasts a wide viewing angle, deep light absorption and is acoustically transparent. It is available in fixed-frame and motorized masking systems and in viewable image widths up to 210-inches. Ames, IA – August 30, 2021 – Made-in-the-USA film screen brand Seymour-Screen Excellence brings its expertise in acoustical transparency (AT) and ambient light-rejecting (ALR) film screens together for the first time with its Ambient-Visionaire Black 0.8MP. Available in various fixed-frame styles, the AT aspect allows for the center channel speaker (and room permitting, front mains) to be placed behind it for the utmost in dialogue and action realism, with its light-rejecting (ALR) aspect compensating for ambient conditions that otherwise compromise projected images. The screen surface is shipping now. The Black 0.8MP is a micro-perforated version of the company’s Ambient-Visionaire Black 0.9 gain ultra-wide ALR screen material. Manufactured at Seymour-Screen Excellence’s facility in Ames, Iowa, the acoustical transparency is made by precisely punching ~120 holes / inch2 (each 0.02-inch in diameter) into the 0.9 surface. While this spec is competitive with other brand’s similar offerings Seymour-Screen Excellence Managing Director Chris Seymour says “Seymour-Screen Excellence’s Black surfaces offer the most effective ambient light filtration available in an optical screen. With a deep background that absorbs 90% of ambient light from any direction, and an aggressive combination of carbon particles and stacked, dithered nano-mirrors, our screens deliver a 12x improvement in contrast ratios in environments that are otherwise unsuited to front projection use, even outdoors.”

New high-performance step-up in-ceiling line AZURE offers ultra-competitive margins and new limited lifetime warranty which are also extended to the company’s existing IC Series. Norwood, MA – June 15, 2021 – The latest in its ongoing expansion across many in-home audio categories these past 24 months, Atlantic Technology further flexes its muscles in the in-ceiling category with the launch of AZURE. A step-up from its IC Series, AZURE is comprised of three 6.5- and two 8-inch 2-way loudspeakers that incorporate the latest in acoustic designs and drivers. The speakers are timbre-matched to Atlantic Technology’s extensive range of in-room and in-wall speakers thereby providing fresh integration options where high-performance sound for music or movies is the goal. The company has also implemented a major increase in its dealer margin in its IC Series and across the AZURE series and has upped its in-ceiling speaker warranty for both the IC and AZURE Series from 5-years to Limited Lifetime. With the launch of the 5 AZURE speakers atop the 8 IC Series the company now offers 13 premium architectural solutions in total. AZURE’s woofers utilize Atlantic Technology’s new lightweight low resonance formed fiberglass cones - the same material as found in its award-winning flagship 8600 and AT-3 H-PAS towers. The fiberglass provides superior uniformity, stiffness and speed with the cones designed in a new curved shape to reduce distortion from break-up resulting in improved midrange clarity. The woofers use high-temperature voice coils with a massive magnet structure and a vented pole piece along with butyl rubber surrounds to ensure audiophile performance. The woofer is contained in a new non-resonant enclosure design with a horn-shaped profile for wide uniform mid-range dispersion. High frequencies are handled by the company’s advanced proprietary, coated silk dome Low Resonance Tweeter (LRT™), same as featured in many of Atlantic Technology’s highly rated in-room...
