Supernova Core proves its case in full sunlight
Flooded by bright sunlight, the presentation room at the University of Colorado’s Wolf Law building lays down a tough challenge for any screen. In our Installation of the Month, a dnp Supernova Core Screen makes the case for cost-effective, high-performance solutions – and wins convincingly.
The Law School at the University of Colorado in Boulder, USA, aims to inspire the vigorous pursuit of ideas, critical analysis, contemplation and civic engagement to advance knowledge about the law. The presentation room at the School’s Wolf Law Building plays an important role in this work.
Bright natural light floods the display
The Wolf Law presentation room is a collaborative zone used for mock courtroom scenarios, panel selections and general presentations. When the room needed a major upgrade of AV equipment including a new screen, the University contacted local consultants The Sextant Group for advice. Their screen specification was short yet challenging: a large, cost-effective screen that would perform well - even in bright ambient lighting.
Affordable ambient light rejection
“The screen was to be located immediately below a stretch of skylights,” comments Brandon Parrish, Senior Audiovisual Systems Designer at Sextant. “It would have to cope with lots of natural light.” It was clear that Wolf Law would need a screen with very effective ambient light rejection. The challenge was to keep it affordable.
Sextant recommended a dnp Supernova Core (120”, 16:9) Screen, which delivers high contrast balanced with an ergonomic brightness level that prevents eyestrain. The images are fully saturated, with exceptional detail, even on a sunny summer’s day.
“No better solution”
“There is no better type of screen for this scenario,” says Brandon Parrish. “Our customer at Wolf Law is very impressed with the results, particularly with all the light shining down directly onto the screen.”
