Da-Lite’s Tensioned Advantage electric screen with SightLine cable drop is now available in the latest release of the Modus VR visual experience platform. Per a statement, as the first manufacturer to feature a projection screen system on the platform, Da-Lite and Modus VR will host a live demo of the visualization tool during a webinar on Wednesday, Feb. 14.

“Two years ago, the SightLine cable drop feature redefined the projection screen category with its ability to add visual appeal and solve the most time-consuming obstacles in projection screen installations,” says Wendy Cox, director, product management, Da-Lite. “Now you can see this eye-catching feature and speed up the buying decision process in a compelling way.”

Available as an option with the company’s Tensioned Advantage and Advantage electric screens, SightLine gives the impression of a floating screen, says Da-Lite. The single roller design suspension system features three or four thin cables that can accommodate drop distances up to 70 inches (standard) and 10 feet (optional) between the ceiling and the top of the screen. This eliminates the need for a black border above the projection screen. Moreover, it simplifies AV setups by creating space above a screen to place cameras or speakers. According to Da-Lite, its low-profile design also preserves a room’s architectural integrity.

Modus VR says it provides software tools that accelerate the design and sales process of commercial AV projects. Unlike other rendering packages, Modus allows for real-time presentation and on-the-fly changes, resulting in fewer meetings and faster alignment among stakeholders. In addition to its speed, Modus works with manufacturers to visualize the capabilities of real-world products, demystifying harder-to-understand concepts like microphone pickup patterns, camera field of view, speaker coverage and more. Once a project is complete, Modus provides tools for generating traditional renders, 360s, line drawings and a bill of materials.

Da-Lite joins other Legrand | AV products featured on the Modus VR platform. Currently, the company offers visualization for the Middle Atlantic Forum Collaboration Suite and C3 Series Credenza, as well as the Vaddio IntelliSHOT , RoboFLIP, RoboSHOT 12E and 30E, TableMIC Microphone and CeilingMIC Microphone products.

Per a statement, integrators can see a live demonstration of the Da-Lite Tensioned Advantage in Modus VR during an upcoming webinar on Wednesday, Feb. 14, from 11 to 11:45 a.m. CST. Here, the demo will showcase how users can interact and see the screen — from various sizes, aspect ratios, screen surfaces and lighting to room environments — all in virtual reality.
