Age of enlightenment – Planar Xscreen projector screens


The Xscreen series of screens from Planar provide amazing images even in daylight, making it possible to enjoy true home theatre regardless of lighting conditions,, according to the brandds Melbourne-based importer, International Dyanmics. Surrounded by high-gloss white or black frames, Xscreens have been designed to appear like a giant plasma, allowing them to be installed permanently in a living room without looking out of place. And with the baseline 60 inch model priced from $2,899, the total cost after factoring in a high-quality projector (around $5,000) compares well to a similar-sized plasma  panel (around $12,000).

Planar also offers 70, 80 and 100 inch Xscreen models for $3,600, $4,200 and $5,700 respectively, and is developing an integrated screen system that will provide PIP facilities, built-in speakers, and facilities for connecting digital sources.
