The newest offering from Screen Innovations is Tiles, a new screen tiling system designed to redefine the video wall category. Built with Black Diamond screen technology, Tiles can go as large as 288” W by 162” H (33” diagonal) and is 4K/8K+ rated and UHD/HDR ready, making it suitable for commercial installations and high traffic areas such as digital signage, restaurants, educational facilities and stadiums.

“Black Diamond has been touted as the best screen that money can buy however, it comes with limitations,” admits 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 screen.”

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. This is achieved by SI’s all-new, computer controlled cutting system, which is capable of cutting to extremely precise specifications.

To ensure a simple and time-efficient installation process, the manufacturer has designed a system that is 75% pre-fabricated; each panel then snaps into place with an attachment system that utilises neodymium magnets.

This installation process allows integrators to assemble a video wall of any size with ease, minimising 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 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.”
