Solo is available in two variations, Solo and Solo Pro. The Pro variation is available with a 24-volt hardwired motor option, up to 12 cassette colors to choose from, larger maximum sizes, and all of SI’s most popular material options. “The idea behind Solo and Solo Pro is to give our dealers a feature-rich entry level line of screens that offer customers a wide value proposition, while maintaining the ability to completely customize the screen for the end-user with Solo Pro”. Continued Meek. “By doing this, SI hopes to add an additional revenue source for dealers in a totally unique way”.
The most intriguing aspect of the Solo line of screens, however, is not the screens themselves, but how they are controlled. Maintaining SI’s focus on the wireless aspect of Solo, the company has developed a line of accessories enabling total wireless connectivity to the screen. The Solo Connect accessory accepts IR, 12-volt trigger, and dry contact, converting them into a RF signal to control the screen without a single wire connected to it. SI has also setup an ecosystem that allows seamless connectivity with all of the most popular control systems and Amazon’s Echo.
Both Solo & Solo Pro models are now shipping, and orders can be placed with Christchurch Home Theatre.
