Rich and elegant velvet covered aluminum frames means that any overscan from your projector is perfectly absorbed and not reflected. Our screens create a surrounding black frame that gives more punch to the projected image. Tight manufacturing tolerances also mean that the screen corners join together perfectly without seams.
The Elara/Elara II series frames have the blackest and finest velvet finish that adds a feeling elegance and luxury to any home theater or commercial setup. The velvet however is not just for looks. It serves a crucial function called screen blanking.
Screen blanking is the removal and elimination of light which bleeds onto the border of the screen frame, thus creating a perfect image. Despite the best efforts by professional installers or DIYers, it is virtually impossible to make the projected image fit perfectly. A projected image will always stray toward the screen edge. What is required is a screen edge that can absorb this light and make it invisible.
Unlike other manufacturers, who break up their frames into two or more pieces per side for easy shipping, EluneVision has one aluminum frame per side, never two. This avoids sagging and deformation of the frame.
EluneVision’s Elara/Elara II series screens use only the best solid aircraft grade aluminum frames that will not deform under any conditions. The frames are cast as a single piece and therefore do not have any weak points where it might break or deform under strain.
The 45 degree edges of the frames are cut using an industrial high precision CNC laser cutter, ensuring only the highest precision cuts. This means that the corners line up perfectly, creating a seamless frame with no visible joins at the corners.
With different types of materials at our disposal, you can always find the write material for your home theater, board room, church and venue.
Our EluneVision Elara screens are available in a total of 5 different materials. Each one of these materials is optimized for different commercial and home theater settings. With such a large selection of materials, the Elara series fixed frame screens are a good solution for any installation, large or small.
Triple-Layered, Fiberglass-Enforced Screen Material
The Elara/Elara II series uses an extremely durable heavy duty, triple layered material. The first layer is consists of the optical viewing surface, which is available in any one of our five materials. The second layer is a thick fiberglass layer giving the material strength and durability. The last layer is a fully black material that is opaque to all visible light.
At 1mm thick the middle fiberglass layer is extremely strong and resilient. This means that material is extremely resistant to having creases or folds and will easily last a life time. Not many manufacturers are using such thick material due to cost and most materials in the marketplace today will be paper thin and can be easily punctured with even a pencil.
The light absorbing black backing effectively stops light loss through the back of the screen. This results in more of the projected image reflecting back through the audience. With the increase in projected light not only improves contrast levels, colour saturation, and brightness, it also allows for the projector to be run at a lower brightness setting, saving precious lamp life. Most projection materials sold today do not have the black backing and many manufactures claim they have opaque material. In reality, when the materials are held up to the sun, the light will pass right through showing the loss of light.
EluneVision Elara/Elara II series screens come with step by step picture instructions that are precise and clear. Typically, all you need is floor space and 45 minutes to assemble our screens. We try to make it as easy and as hassle free as possible to assemble our products.
Elara series includes wall brackets which allow you to install the screen safely and easily by hanging the screen much like a large picture frame. The wall brackets are kept out of sight behind the screen and the screen is held less than an inch from the wall.
EluneVision Elara/Elara II Screens use a screw anchor tensioning system. Each side of the frame has 5 to 20 screw anchors allowing the tension to be finely adjusted to get a perfectly flat viewing surface.
The screens use a 2 stage tensioning system. The first stage is composed of a frame tensioning system, where screw anchors are used to fine tune the amount of force required to pull the material perfectly flat. The Elara/Elara II series uses no fewer than 20 anchor points to fix the screen material to the frame.
The second stage uses force equalization rods, which are inserted into the perimeter of the material to distribute the tension force evenly across all anchor points. The rods ensure that there is no sagging, creases or V waves in the material.
The Elara/Elara II two-stage tensioning system means that the screen will be completely flat, and will remain so year after year.
At EluneVision, we believe building the screen to match your requirements, not the other way around. This means we can build, within 2-3 weeks, the screen size and material of your choice. We can even offer different sizes of frames, 3 inches or 5 inches for that extra luxurious touch.
Our list of clients includes a long list churches, company board rooms and government offices.
All EluneVision screens come packaged in two layers of 1 cm thick cardboard. This ensures that your screen is not damaged during the shipping process. In addition to the outer cardboard packaging, the velvet frames are covered by a layer of plastic film to ensure the frames are delivered in impeccable condition. The material is well protected as all parts are tied down to prevent any knocking during transportation.
EluneVision stands behind each and every one of our screens. Unlike many other companies which require you to send the product back for repair, we simply just send you a replacement screen. This is our promise and commitment to our clients and customers. Before the new screen is sent out, another round of meticulous inspection is carried out to ensure that a flawless product is received. We work with all our resellers to ensure top level service for our customers.
