01ECLIPSE IMMERSIVE SCREEN SYSTEM

T he Eclipse Immersive Screen System is a solution every engineer and owner should keep in mind. What sets it apart from all others, it is the only screen system on the market that is truly seamless.

HERE’S HOW…

The projection surface of the Eclipse Screen is not perforated, but solid. Therefore, the surface is non-distorted, enhancing the visual performance in multiple areas. The curvilinear shape acts as an immersive blanket, by nature increasing the depth of field while improving the guest experience. Combined with our Orion Optical Coating, the projection surface offers superior advantages: image uniformity, truly seamless, higher contrast, resolution, and brightness.

In addition to high-level image processing, the Eclipse Immersive Screen System offers the option to incorporate behind the screen audio. How is this possible with a solid screen surface? The patented Lyra Sound Panels can be incorporated anywhere in the screen. They are sonically clear, visually undetectable, delivering precise orientation of sound from the relative media.

The Eclipse Immersive Screen is the ideal system for immersive displays as it achieves the best of both worlds: a breathtaking image with exceptional acoustic performance.

ACHIEVE BETTER VISUAL PERFORMANCE AT A LOWER COST

The Eclipse Immersive Screen System offers superior advantages when compared to existing perforated metal screens.

Best on the market!

Electric Picture has been working with Strong/MDI on US Navy projects around the world. Their screens are the best we have seen in the specialized spherical/toroidal screen marketplace for projection. Our visual display systems must pass rigorous testing to meet tight visual standards. Strong/ MDI screens have never been an issue in any acceptance test. Our projected imaging for simulation training has never been better. For anyone considering a high-quality projection surface, look no further than Strong/MDI.

ORION OPTICAL COATING

Orion is a matte finish, low gain reflective coating developed specifically for solid projection surfaces. It can be applied to many types of surfaces. When coated with Orion, the projection surfaces maintain high contrast levels and provide superior color accuracy.

The Orion finish reduces the level of incidental reflection from alternate light sources other than the projector without affecting image quality. It also provides large viewing angles making it an excellent fit for immersive displays with wide audience seating or when viewers are in movement.

To ensure adequate surface preparation and optimal image uniformity, Orion is only applied on-site by our qualified technicians.

BENEFITS

ß Superb image uniformity of the projection surface

ß Unparalleled contrast levels, deep blacks, and rich color

ß Highly durable and resistant to yellowing, not degraded by UV light

ß Blemish free surface, developed for large surface applications

COMPARISON

Exceeded Expectations!

VS OTHERS

Thanks again for the excellent work you and your team performed at our Mesa, AZ site. Our Immersive Simulation (IMMSIM) Lab capability has been greatly enhanced by your application of the surface finish material. The 4,000 square foot screen is now «blemishfree». The pristine surface is now optimized for projected imagery such that we can obtain high and low contrast measurements. Your team’s efficiency, work ethic, and professionalism made it easy to hast you guys. Your attention to detail and cleanliness helped make the job seamless. I look forward to working with you and your team in the future!

03 LYRA SOUND PANELS

The Lyra Sound Panels are a unique configuration that allows installation of sound modules behind a solid surface projection screen. It is a patented technology that lets audio pass through a solid surface while maintaining a seamless high-resolution image, virtually invisible to the guest. The Lyra Sound Panels are the bridge from the speaker of your choice (not included) to the audience.

As immersive environments are becoming larger, especially the projection surfaces; this limits the sound design. With the Lyra Sound Panels, you can selectively place the speaker modules anywhere behind the projection surface to maintain the approximation of sound to the relative media on the screen.

In the past most engineers have utilized perforated metal screens to achieve this objective. Although, that comes with a heavy sacrifice of image resolution, contrast, visible seams, additional maintenance and cost.

The Lyra Sound Panels allow the owner to achieve an immersive environment on a technical level, giving sound engineers a new option for immersive design and cre-

ative flexibility. It helps preserve the highresolution image which receives approval from visual engineers. Owners, engineers, and guests all agree it elevates the attraction to a new level.

BENEFITS

ß Allows speakers to be incorporated behind solid surfaces such as: drywall, fiberglass, metal, and many other architectural surfaces

ß Extremely durable and impact resistant

ß Cost effective compared to other options

ß Maintains full audio spectrum with minimal transmission loss

ß Class One F ire Rated

ß Preserves a high-resolution projection surface, virtually invisible to the guest

ß Selectively placed

ß Low to zero maintenance

8 LYRA SOUND PANELS

Truly remarkable!

MDI Lyra Sound Panels, combined with the Orion coating on our walls create an ultimate immersive illusion for our venues. Having a seamless, acoustically transparent, and yet reflective surface is a game changer for immersive entertainment. Our guest experience is enhanced completely by the use of this technology that is virtually invisible. It’s truly remarkable.

POWERED BY

SEISMOS THE INTERACTIVE FLOORING SYSTEM

Seismos is a direct drive haptic floor system developed to stimulate an emotional response through vertical movement. The flooring system is meticulously designed to enhance a person’s sensory experience. This emotional response could be fear, excitement, joy, however you decide to utilize Seismos; the flooring system is a technical platform with endless possibilities.

A lot of what we experience not only comes from what we hear and see, but also through what we feel. Seismos allows your whole body to feel the vibrations of a rocket taking off, a volcano erupting, or the footsteps from an elephant… Seismos can make us feel these different frequencies that cannot be transmitted by sound, reaching new heights in immersive entertainment.

Combine Seismos with Orion Tiles for the ultimate in optical performance. Imagine, an interactive flooring system that generates a broad range of vibrations in conjunction with the world’s first commercial grade optical flooring tiles. Are you ready to take your project to the next level?

BENEFITS

ß Extremely silent operation

ß Easy to control with live audio input

ß Scalable to whatever room size

ß Can handle movement of large groups of guests

ß Extremely fast response time due to patented low-frequency direct-drive/ tactile transducer

Marcel Desrochers, a visionary entrepreneur, founded MDI and quickly became the top supplier of stage equipment across Canada.

1980-1991 MDI STARTS MANUFACTURING PROJECTION SCREENS

In 1980, the company began manufacturing PVC cycloramas and rear projection screens. Acting upon the growing demand coming from the cinema industry, MDI started manufacturing front projection screens in 1991.

1995-2007

MDI MOVES & BECOMES SUBSIDIARY OF BALLANTYNE STRONG INC.

In 1995, the company moved into its modern facility in Joliette, Quebec. MDI’s continued growth prompted important additions to the existing building in both 1998 and 2003. In 2007, MDI became a wholly owned subsidiary of Ballantyne Strong Inc. and the company’s name changed to Strong/MDI Screen Systems Inc.

2008-TODAY LEADER IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF PROJECTION SCREENS

Production doubled the following year due to rapid increase in demand for the company’s reputable 3D screens. Production capability doubled in 2011 with the addition of 26,000 square feet including a second coating tower. In 2016, after adopting rigorous quality control standards, Strong/MDI became ISO9001:2015 certified.
