Press Release

Severtson Screens (, a global leader in innovative and quality projection screens for the home theater, commercial, pro AV, and cinema markets, is pleased to announce it will launch its new Proteus Series projection screens with built-in masking system. Proteus Series
screens allow you to quickly and easily switch between 16:9 and 2.39:1 aspect ratios.

“The Proteus Series is the ultimate in home theater and permanent installation flexibility, designed with a built-in masking system that allows the aspect ratio of the screen to be changed at the push of a button for superior viewing versatility,” explained Aaron White, Home Theater & Pro AV sales lead at Severtson Corp. “As one of Severtson's most innovative technologies, Proteus’ masking material is designed to absorb all spill-over that results from the projected media and the viewing surface being in different native formats. This gives the viewer a razor- sharp viewing edge.”

Severtson Proteus Series screens are the product of several years of research and development, reaching the goal of providing the ultimate adjustable-aspect ratio screen in the industry. The Proteus Series screens allow users to quickly, quietly, and easily transform the screen to accommodate the industry's most common aspect ratios (16:9 and 2.39:1) without visible gray bars which can distract from the viewing experience, thus providing a perfect clean edge for the most common content formats. With Proteus, you can watch TV programming
and sports in 16:9 format without any projection bleed-over or visible gray bars, then switch to 2.39:1 for movies at the simple push of a button.

The Proteus Series features your choice of one of Severtson’s signature USA- made projection surfaces or optical coatings (listed below). All optical coatings also available in micro-perf.

Choices include Cinema White (1.3 gain); Cinema Grey (1.0 gain); Stellar White (1.3 - 2.6 gain); High Contrast Grey [HCNC] (0.7 gain); Grey Vision (1.3 - 2.2 gain); SAT-4K (1.18 gain); TAT-4K (0.93 gain); Bright White Acoustically- Transparent [BWAT] (1.0 - 1.1 gain); S?Vision 3D GX (1.4 - 3.0 gain; Severtson’s advanced, water-based optical coating recommended for passive 3D projection).
