Draper’s Amy Madden Leads Education Courses at CEDIA

(Spiceland, IN) – August 17, 2017 – If you’re planning to attend the 2017 CEDIA Expo in September, Draper’s Amy Madden will be providing two educational courses to help attendees better understand projection screens and window shades. And with better understanding will come more opportunities for profit!

The first class Madden will be leading is entitled “How to Control Natural Light Using Window Shades.” One of the most frequent topics of discussion with integrators is getting the right shade fabric for the site conditions. Putting the same window shade in every window, on every elevation, is an easy mistake to make. Picking a color for shades because it matches the room decor is another. This presentation will demonstrate better ways to choose window shades based on the desired outcome, including performance, aesthetics, and a blend of both.

“How to Control Natural Light Using Window Shades” will take place Wednesday, September 6 from 8:30 AM - 9:30 AM in room 28 D.

In “Projection Screen Science Made Simple,” Madden will take attendees on a deep dive into the world of modern projection screen technology. Today’s finest projection viewing surfaces are purpose-built solutions that deliver vibrant, engaging images because they have been designed to complement the projector, lighting, and site conditions. This session will cover the different types of screen surfaces available, how to use an online projection planner to choose the right size, format, and type of projection screen to meet relevant standards for every installation, including the new CEDIA CEA CEB23, Demonstrate different screen surface types, and real-world sample problems for a more hands-on experience.

“Projection Screen Science Made Simple” will be Wednesday, September 6 from 10:30 AM-12:00 PM, also in room 28 D.
