Joe Kane and Da-Lite Announce New JKP Affinity Screen for Post Production and Home Theater Installations

By Gary Reber

 Joe Kane Productions and Da-Lite Screen Company have released the second screen in the critically acclaimed JKP Affinity Screen series with the introduction of the HD Progressive 0.6 gain material.  HD Progressive 0.6 is designed specifically for post production telecine bays that require the ultimate in video reproduction for video and film editing/production.

“Through my long time relationships in the video and film industry, I knew that editors were missing some of the visual detail that is critical to producing the best picture in their post production facilities,” comments Joe Kane.  “Today’s 1080p and higher resolution projector capabilities exceed the performance of most projection screens on the market.  In collaboration with the chemists and engineers at Da-Lite, we were able to produce an extremely low gain screen that excels in uniformity and detail reproduction, even when paired with high powered projectors.  The result is the new HD Progressive 0.6 fabric.”

“With the JKP Affinity HD Progressive 0.6 gain material, we have produced a solution that works for both post production and home theater applications,” said Dan Drook, Da‑Lite’s Vice President of Home Theater Sales.  “The introduction of our 0.6 material compliments our HD Progressive 0.9 material that has been winning critical acclaim since its introduction at CEDIA last year.”

Because of its high definition reproduction qualities, this totally new screen is ideal for home theater applications as well.  With unmatched uniformity and contrast, the HD Progressive 0.6 material works perfectly with high resolution projectors in low ambient light installations in smaller home theaters and with high-powered projectors in the very large screen home theater applications.  The HD Progressive 0.6 gain JKP Affinity Screen is designed to bring out the best viewer experience in both extremes in home theatre room sizes.

Available in a variety of sizes to fit most applications, the JKP Affinity Screen with HD Progressive 0.6 is currently available through Da-Lite’s commercial and home theatre dealers.  For more information please log on to www.da-lite.com and select the New Product Showcase from the menu.
