The superb video performance of the Reference Studio 4K NanoEdge series screen comes from EluneVIsion’s R&D efforts in creating a material that is 100% transparent to the user, and designed for maximum detail clarity when used with 1080p and 4K projectors. The material is a near perfect lambertian diffuser, which means that the light is dispersed evenly in a hemispherical distribution, allowing for a balanced and smooth light reflection. The smooth and even light reflection means that there is no hot spotting and or texturing. Furthermore, the material provides a near perfect white field uniformity and an extremely large viewing cone.
Adding to the performance of the screen is the stunningly beautiful NanoEdge bezel, which is 0.4″ in width, as well as LED lighting which comes standard.
The ultra-modern sleek contour of the screen elevates the décor of any room that the screen is placed in. This makes the screen the centerpiece of any room and a highlight topic of conversation for all your viewers and guests. The very thin NanoEdge bezel and the LED lights behind the screen, with its large variety of colours and soft glow, complement the mood and style of any décor. The combination of all the Reference Studio 4K NanoEdge features as well as the unbeatable performance of the Reference Studio 4K material transforms your projection setup into a high-performance home theater with unparalleled performance and aesthetics.
Our Reference Studio 4K NanoEdge fixed-frame screens have a very long expected life. This long life, combined with our Reference Studio 4K 100 material that performs at the studio/reference level, ensures that this screen can be used for many iterations of projector upgrades.
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 our 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 NanoEdge 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 our texturless surface and lambertian design, even when the resolution eventually increases to 4K and 8K pixel resolution, each pixel will be rendered sharply and accurately. Our competitors’ non-reference class screens effectively down-sample today’s high-resolution 1080p projector to a lower-resolution image (as you will see in the tests/demonstration images below), and they will do it even more for tomorrow’s higher resolution 4K and 8K projectors. 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.
EluneVision always aims to exceed the performance and value of our competitors, and the Reference Studio 4K NanoEdge screen is no exception. Set the ultimate mood for your room with the press of a button on the included RF remote, allowing you to control the colour, brightness as well as the option of 6 colour/brightness cycling modes. Unlike competitors which charge up to an additional $1000 for optional LED addition to their screen, the Reference Studio 4K NanoEdge screen comes with LED back-lighting as a free, standard feature.
Integration with Home Automation Control Systems and Universal Remotes
With the optional IR LED controller, the Reference Studio 4K NanoEdge’s LEDs can be fully integrated into home automation systems. This means you will be able to change the LED settings with all of your favorite control systems such as as Control 4, Elan, Crestron, etc.
Given that EluneVision always aims to exceed the performance and value of our competitors, it was not enough to merely include an LED kit compared to competitors who charge extra for it – we also wanted to make sure our LEDs were implemented in a superior way. Standardizing the LEDs as an integral part of the screen means no stone was left unturned to make sure the LEDs worked ideally with the NanoEdge screen.
The EluneVision Reference Studio 4K NanoEdge fixed-frame screen uses higher density LEDs. A higher density of LEDs per linear foot is the key reason that the Reference Studio 4K NanoEdge screen produces an aura which is larger, smoother and of a much higher quality than so many of our competitors.
The extreme attention to detail for the NanoEdge screen means we placed the LED stripes around the corners of the screen as well, with specially designed L-shaped corner-pieces. Compare this to the LED strips of more expensive competitors, who have no LEDs in the corner of the strips, leading to a dead spot effect in the corner of their screens.
Due to psycho-visual effects and way human vision works, when an image is surrounded with bright light in any colour, the perceived contrast of the image within increases significantly.
Given that the LED back-lighting improves both the performance of the projection system as well as increasing the aesthetics of the room, it is not surprising that we have chosen to include it with the Reference Studio 4K NanoEdge screen as a free, standard feature. Our implementation of the LED back-lighting system in the Reference Studio 4K NanoEdge screen has met our goal of out-pacing the competition in value, performance and aesthetics.
The bezel of the Reference Studio 4K NanoEdge screen uses an ultra-thin all aluminum 10mm or 0.4” frame. The bezel is covered in ultra-black velour, which helps to soak up any stray light from the projector. The bezel gives the screen, and thus your room, a stunningly modern design aesthetic.
The Reference Studio 4K NanoEdge 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.
At EluneVision, much effort was spent designing a projection material that is texture-free. The result is the Reference Studio 4K 100 family of materials have an extremely smooth and pit free surface. The EluneVision Reference Studio 4K family of screens have the highest clarity, sharpness and definition of any projection screen released to date. This means, simply, that the geometry of each projected pixel remains as the projector manufacturer intended.
To illustrate this point, see the screen material texture comparison below, showing our Reference Studio 4K 100 material beside Stewart’s (widely considered the gold standard, but at a much higher cost), as well as two other more expensive competitors.
The lack of texture leaves pixel geometry perfectly intact with our material. Why is this important? With 1080p projectors now standard and 4K projectors becoming more affordable, EluneVision’s Reference Studio 4K NanoEdge 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. Also due to the fact that there is zero texturing and perfect preservation of detail clarity, the Reference Studio 4K NanoEdge material will perfectly resolve 4K and 8K resolution, saving you a screen upgrade and thus saving a lot of money.
Due to the use of a smooth and, our screen has absolutely no sparkles. The Reference Studio 4K NanoEdge material will easily pass any of the common sparkle tests, which include fast action bright scenes in movies as well as hockey, footbal, and other sports. 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.
When an image’s pixel pattern does not match that of the textured surface it is displayed on, moire is created. The mismatch causes a wavy, non-uniform, interference pattern which degrades projected image quality and uniformity.
The Reference Studio 4K NanoEdge is completely eliminates this problem because the screen material is texture free, which means that there is no textured surface pattern that could cause the creation of the interference patterns. Furthermore, the Reference Studio 4K NanoEdge has been tested with LCD, DLP, D-ILA and SXRD projectors to ensure a moire-free picture at various throw distances and viewing angles.
To the left is an example of how moire can impact picture quality. When you zoom in, you see that the competitor’s screen creates moire on the woman’s dress, causing artifacting patterns that are not supposed to be on the image. Furthermore, the moire pattern also causes discoloration, as green hues are introduced on what is supposed to be a completely blue dress in the competitor’s image.
At EluneVision, we believe the perfect screen is one where you never notice the screen surface under any conditions. In many poorly designed projection materials, the screen texture and surface will become visible to the viewer, taking away from what is being projected. In order to design a material that can be called Reference, we engineered a material that is a near perfect lambertian diffuser.
The surface of a material exhibits Lambertian reflectance if the viewer sees the same image or brightness regardless of the viewer’s angle. From a more technical perspective, this means the incident light is scattered in all directions equally. A good example of this is an unfinished block of wood, where no matter what angle you view it, the luminance is roughly equal. In contrast, finished wood with a glossy coat of polyurethane exhibits specular highlights, which are areas of brighter luminance when viewing at different angles. While this glossy finish may be beneficial on furniture, it is the cause of numerous problems in projection screens.
EluneVision’s The Reference Studio 4K NanoEdge is designed specifically to achieve the highest level of colour reproduction. To achieve this, the material is designed for a completely neutral colour reproduction. Many other ambient-light rejecting 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.
To the right, we see a demonstration of this phenomenon. The top zoom-in shows the competitor’s screen versus our EluneVision Reference Studio 4K NanoEdge. Note the color shifts that the competitor exhibits, as well as the minimization color shifts of the EluneVision Reference Studio 4K NanoEdgel.
Due to the near perfect lambertian diffuser properties of the Reference Studio 4K 100 material, the viewing angle is a full 180 degrees, allowing seats to be placed off axis without any changes in brightness or white field uniformity. The image on the Reference Studio 4K 100 material is consistent from edge-to-edge at all viewing angles.
To demonstrate this, photos were taken and posted below (the images were not re-touched). The first one shows a projected movie in a front view, while the second shows the movie at fairly extreme side view. Though the user would not normally sit this far off center, the photos below demonstrate the fact that in any way that you decide to arrange seating, the screen will perform with perfection from any view-point. This performance extends to the height and location that you decide to mount the projector. Whether ceiling mounted and centered to the screen, or table mounted to far to the left/right of the screen, the image the screen projects back to the viewer will not degrade.
The Reference Studio 4K NanoEdge fixed-frame screen uses an extremely durable, yet flexible, double layered material. The first layer is consists of the optical viewing surface. The second layer is a fully black material that is opaque to all visible light.
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.
At EluneVision, we take pride in every single aspect of our screens. This means that we think of ways to simplify the install process, to provide high quality materials and to give the maximum performance possible. Below are just some small examples:
Aircraft-grade aluminum is used in the made of all major parts, we keep the use of inferior plastic to a very minimum. This ensures high build quality, precision and longevity.
For installation, we have devised an magnetic attachment system which allows the screen to hug the wall on all 4 corners, giving a perfect look.
Many manufacturers leave the LED controller exposed; our box is covered by an aluminum box to protect the LED controller board.
White gloves as well as all necessary tools to put the screen together are included.
