Screen Innovations (SI), the innovators who introduced Black Diamond®, the first-
ever ambient-light rejecting screen which revolutionized the video projection screen
industry, has announced the introduction of Tiles, a new screen tiling system that
redefines the video wall category. Built with the award-winning Black Diamond®
screen technology, Tiles can go as large as 288′ W by 162′ H (330′ diagonal), and
is 4K/8K+ rated and UHD/HDR ready.
“Black Diamond® has been touted as the best screen that money can buy however,
it comes with limitations,’ says Skyler Meek, Director of Marketing for SI. “Because
of the extreme engineering required to manufacture the optical qualities in the
material, it is limited in height. To overcome this, SI has created a system that
uses smaller, rigid tiles precision-bonded together in order to create one larger
To build a Black Diamond® video wall, panels are placed next to each other with a
nearly invisible seam, and stacked in a running-bond pattern for superior strength.
This is achieved by SI’s all-new, computer controlled cutting system, which is
capable of cutting to extremely precise specifications. This attention to detail is
what ensures that customers receive the best possible accuracy, quality, and
longevity from their tile screens.
To ensure that the installation process is as time-efficient and simple as possible, SI
has designed a system that is 75% pre-fabricated; each panel then snaps into place
with an attachment system that utilizes neodymium magnets. This installation
process allows integrators to assemble a video wall of any size with ease
minimizing hassle on the job. All panels are precision-cut and stocked in three
sizes: 45′, 50′ and 55′ for 16:9 and 43′, 48′, and 53′ for 16:10.
“What’s so revolutionary about this system,’ Skyler Meek continues, “is that there is
now a solution for a massive “video wall’ type screen without any of the headaches,
installation problems, or budget concerns that give integrators nightmares. Tiles
require only a single light source, are a breeze to install, and are maintenance free
(except for the occasional gentle dusting.) And the technology is future-proofed with
8K+ resolution rating and UHD/HDR capability.’
“Tiles with Black Diamond® are the perfect solution for commercial installations
and high traffic areas such as digital signage, restaurants, educational facilities,
stadiums, and just about any location where bright, detailed images are critical.’
