SCREEN FRAMES

 

UNIQUE DESIGN, PERFECT WORKMANSHIP

Screen frames produced by us are supporting structures for projection surfaces and, optionally, for other elements of cinema technical equipment required by our clients.

Unique modular construction of our screen frames, manufactured to our own design, ensures appropriate rigidity and stability of these constructions, making them lightweight and requiring little space for installation. Moreover, such constructions are long-lasting and do not require any servicing.

 

 

TAILORED TO THE DESIGN REQUIREMENTS

Screen frames are manufactured to custom orders, for the required projected image size, taking into account the architecture of the wall behind the screen in each cinema hall as well as design requirements of the client. Each technical design of a screen frame is presented to the client in order to obtain their acceptance before it is sent to production.

We do not require any special preparation of the floor and the walls for installing our screen frames. The mounting system provided by our company gives appropriate load resistance, ensuring full safety of using the construction.

OPTIONS OF SCREEN FRAMES CONSTRUCTION AND EQUIPMENT:

  • can be manufactured in any required size
  • can be manufactured in flat or curved configuration
  • in standard manufactured from steel, optionally from aluminum
  • possibility of bending and tilting the construction in any direction or curving its upper or lower edge
  • possibility to construct including platforms for the cinema sound system and technical platforms with access ladders for maintenance
  • possibility of mounting to any type of the wall behind the screen: concrete, brick, drywall, THX Baffle Wall
  • possibility of equipping selected constructions of screen frames with screen masking [read below ->]

 

TYPES OF SCREEN FRAMES:

  • ‘Floating’ screen frame

The construction of the ‘floating’ screen frame is usually placed on the floor and anchored to the wall behind the screen by brackets. Optionally, there is a possibility of mounting the construction only to the wall behind the screen.

This type of screen frame is characterized by the way of mounting the projection surface which is stretched and wrapped around the frame in the so-called ‘wrap-around’ system. Such system makes only the projection surface visible to the viewer and gives the cinema screen a modern look while offering great viewing experience, as it makes an impression of floating in the air. This impression is strengthened when using a construction mounted only to the wall behind the screen. The nature of this construction and its destination makes it impossible to equip it with screen masking.

Lightweight and compact construction of such frame and the ‘wrap-around’ system of installing the projection surface allow maximization of projected image size to the total available area of the wall behind the screen. The use of such screen frame is recommended in situations when the availability of the area of the wall behind the screen is limited and the client requires the maximum size cinema screen.

  • ‘Masking’ screen frame

The construction of ‘masking’ screen frame is placed on the floor and anchored to the wall behind the screen by brackets. The standard construction of this type contains supporting elements for mounting screen masking.

The installation of the projection surface is performed in the ‘lace-in’ system, that is the surface is stretched and tied inside the perimeter of the screen frame. All visible elements of the frame as well as the whole area of the wall behind the screen around the frame are covered by screen masking which also performs the function of formatting the projected image to appropriate aspect ratio.

The ‘masking’ type of screen frame is a classic construction of cinema screen which is associated by viewers with high quality and comfort. Using such construction is necessary when there is a need to format the projected image to the required aspect ratio or to change the basic format of the picture, without showing unlit places on the projection surface. The use of this construction is also advised in situations when the wall behind the screen needs covering.

  • Mobile screen frame

 

The construction of the mobile screen frame is placed on a special movable structure which allows movement of the cinema screen in the vicinity of the stage.

Such screen frame can be made both in ‘wrap-around’ and ‘lace-in’ type systems of mounting projection surface. The ‘lace-in’ construction can also be equipped with screen masking which covers visible elements of the construction and formats the projection image to required aspect ratio.

The screen frame placed on a movable structure proves itself useful mainly in culture centers in which the stage is used not only for movie projections, but also for other cases where it is necessary to remove the cinema screen from it.

 

  • Suspended screen frame

The construction of suspended screen frame allows its installation to any appropriately prepared construction under the ceiling or to any adequate stage technology equipment.

This type of screen frame is made in the ‘lace-in’ type system of mounting projection surface and may additionally be equipped with screen masking, covering visible construction elements and formatting the projected image.

Such cinema screen is mainly used in multi-function culture centers, equipped with implemented system of stage technology devices under the ceiling, such as stage battens.

SCREEN MASKING

 

IDEAL PICTURE FORMAT

The system of screen masking produced by us is a complete solution for formatting projected image to right proportions, changing aspect ratio of projected image and covering all visible elements of screen frame as well as the whole area of the wall behind the screen around the frame.

The masking is made to our own design, using high-quality fabrics with appropriate acoustic and light absorption properties. All fabrics used by us have relevant fireproof certificates.

 

PERFECT SUPPLEMENT OF SCREEN FRAME

Screen masking is a standard equipment of ‘masking’ type screen frames manufactured by us. They can also be supplied optionally to other types of our frames. It is also possible to purchase the masking separately and to mount it on the existing screen frame.

All types of masking are made to custom orders, taking into account the architecture of the wall behind the screen in each cinema hall as well as design requirements of the client.

 

  

WE DELIVER AND INSTALL SCEEN MASKING ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD

 

TYPES OF SCREEN MASKING:

  • Fixed masking system

The system formats the projected image to appropriate picture format for one preset aspect ratio and covers all visible elements of screen frame as well as the whole area of the wall behind the screen around the frame.

It is made of four unmovable masking panels, placed from each side of projection surface, thus cutting the appropriate picture format. The system also includes the upper and lower valances masking the space between the ceiling and the upper edge of the screen and between the floor and the lower edge of the screen. On both sides of the screen there are side curtains, masking the remaining space around the screen frame.

  • Movable masking system

The system offers the possibility of formatting the projected image to appropriate picture format, for some preset aspect ratios by automated change of picture proportions on a particular cinema screen. It also covers all visible elements of screen frame as well as the whole area of the wall behind the screen around the frame.

The construction of this system is similar to the construction of the fixed masking system, however, it is equipped with an electric motor allowing automated movements of each of four masking panels placed on each side of the projection surface. The movements of masking panels allow changing the format of projected image, by cutting the required part of projection surface. The system is also equipped with upper and lower valances and masking side curtains. Additionally, if it is needed, masking panels are equipped with fabric straps which mask free space created by movement of a particular panel.

The control of the masking system may be connected and synchronized with the mechanism of image format changing in the projector, thanks to which the masking will move automatically after selecting a specific aspect ratio in the projector menu. 

 

OPTIONS OF SCREEN MASKING CONSTRUCTION AND EQUIPMENT:

  • possibility of producing a movable masking system in one of 5 configurations below:
    • movable side masking (automated 2 side panels)
    • movable top masking (automated upper panel)
    • movable bottom masking (automated lower panel)
    • movable vertical masking (automated upper and lower panels)
    • movable complete masking (automated all 4 panels)
  • possibility of programming up to 3 picture formats in standard, and up to 10 formats at additional payment
  • possibility of controlling the system in 3 ways:
    • remote control
    • wall switch mounted near the screen frame
    • wall switch mounted in the projection booth
  • possibility of connecting system controls to any integrated system of cinema technical equipment automation
  • on request - possibility of replacing the electric motor with hand drive mechanism
