Gerriets’ new UltraBrite Projection Fabric debuted at this year’s United States Institute for Theatre Technology (USITT) conference in St. Louis in spring 2017. The seamless 140-foot-wide by 13-foot high projection surface was placed at the entrance to the expo hall. Wladimiro A. Woyno R., a Yale University Graduate Student, designed the projections with vibrant textures reminiscent of circuit boards and animations evoking Broadway hits. These were mapped across seven projectors over the 140-foot-wide fabric.
The fabric’s tight weave and slight sheen is designed to yield crisp image clarity across a wide viewing cone and to be a cost effective front projection surface for close up viewing of large seamless expanses.
UltraBrite’s standard 16-foot-5-inch width and 164-foot bolt length is designed for a seamless viewing experience without compromising quality, brightness or budget. The fabric’s tight weave and slight sheen is designed to yield crisp image clarity across a wide viewing cone and to be a cost effective front projection surface for close up viewing of large seamless expanses. It also has rear projection capabilities for large light washes.
The product's fabric is designed to be easy to handle and allows wrinkles to fall out once hung and stretched. The fabric can reportedly be cut onsite and stretched with Gerriets EasyFix fabric fasteners, without the need of webbing and grommets. Available as raw material or custom sewn to size, UltraBrite is flame-retardant to NFPA 701 standards, as well as other European standards. UltraBrite Projection Fabric is now in stock and ships folded or rolled from the company’s Ewing, N.J., warehouse.
