Large-format projection is an ideal display solution to convey scale and gravitas, sending a message to your customers that you are a credible and large organization—an organization that can be trusted. However, this message can be easily shattered with the use of subpar projection technology, which is likely to significantly underperform under scrutiny.

By dealing with only the best projection system technologies, businesses are able to display their messages as intended, unimpeded by the technological and practical restraints often faced with inferior large-format projection systems.

HeyKD’s Digital Glass is a rear projection screen solution with a revolutionary twist. Manufactured using a special process that coats an advanced optical projection layer directly onto toughened glass or acrylic, a digital glass screen provides an extremely robust and versatile projection solution. One of the things that sets this solution apart from the rest is its bezel-free composition, allowing for huge seamless screens up to a whopping 8x3m in acrylic and 6x3m in glass, suitable for a range of applications from high-end projection to edge blending. The bezel-free design of Digital Glass allows it to serve as a superior and incredibly cost-effective solution to popular LCD video walls. A great example of this can be found at The Dubai Mall, where a digital glass screen currently resides in Level Shoes—the largest rigid rear projection screen in the Middle East.

Comparing Digital Glass to Large Format LED Screens

One of the most competitive technologies for large format projection is LED screens, which provide large format screens with a range of specialist options available. However, upon closer inspection, anyone can easily spot that LED screen quality is not ideal for up-close applications, often with a pixel pitch of several millimeters and producing an image using RGB-colored LEDs. While a great solution when considering distance and compatible specialist options, large-format LED screens are not a great solution for up-close applications. Indeed, common applications of LED screens do often put them at a distance, but the comparison remains that the constraints of LED technology force many users to compromise between image quality and size—a compromise that Digital Glass does not require.

Large format projection is a display solution that traditionally relies on a passive audience; that is, by projecting an image onto the screen, the audience passively receives it without any engagement. In many cases, this is highly effective if the screen or content draws the attention of passersby. However, in some cases, especially where competition is fierce, even the impressive size of the screen is not enough to draw attention, bringing the worthiness of your investment into disrepute.

The Superiority of HeyKD’s Large Format Rear Projection Screen

HeyKD’s Digital Glass boasts additional specialist options that make it far superior to many other large format display solutions, allowing you to engage customers in a way that is simply unachievable using most other large format projection solutions. Digital Glass is not only a robust, high-quality projection screen; it’s also versatile.

First of all, it is important to mention the bespoke attention Digital Glass enjoys; HeyKD is able to produce this screen to exacting requirements. It is also important to mention that Digital Glass offers users an Ultra Short Throw (UST) rear projection solution, making it ideal for environments where space is at a premium—the throw distance required to accommodate a UST projection system is significantly smaller than standard projection systems. Combine this with HeyKD’s Platinum Vision® UST Laser projector, and these products offer a high-end projection system with superior performance, a maintenance-free projector, and a screen that provides high brightness and unsurpassed contrast, even in brightly lit environments. What’s more, digital glass can also be granted touch and sound capabilities. By producing the screen combined with a HeyKD Touch Frame, it can be given interactivity, broadening its capabilities compared to what is achievable with a standard screen. HeyKD surface sound Soundpods are also an incredible addition, interacting with customers on an extra level and exciting as many senses as possible.

With the addition of these functions, you can be a lot more creative with how your screen can be used. From merchandising games to presentation screens, Digital Glass offers a highly functional, high-quality HD/4K projection screen that is sure to leave your customers ‘wowed’.

However, as revolutionary as digital glass is, HeyKD offers many other solutions for large-format display applications. Depending on the application, HeyKD is able to recommend a range of products that may be suitable. For example, as mentioned earlier, LED screens offer an ideal solution at a distance. The specialist options available for LED screens make them a serious contender, allowing for greater creative applications using transparent display options, for example, making them ideal for glass buildings, protective fascias, and sports stadiums. With IP rating options, LED screens can be used outdoors for advertising or event sponsorship.

If projection is the preferred system, HeyKD’s wider specialist large format projection range offers more innovations than just rear projection digital glass. Both front projection and dual image projection screen equivalents are available with a seamless design on screens up to 8x3m in acrylic (6x3m in glass) and boasting all the technical benefits of digital glass. Large-format front projection screens are available with a range of projection screen coatings, including high gain, high contrast, wide viewing angles, 3D, and sun-readable options.

For highly specialized simulation applications, HeyKD’s large format projection products are ready to impress with a range of solutions tailored to requirements. The popular use of projection technology for CAVE systems and simulation screens is a true testament to the quality HeyKD boasts. In a huge show of confidence in the quality of these projection screens, large-format projection displays are often used to achieve the effect of simulating a completely different environment. It can also be used to explore spatial and big data in a way that allows researchers to identify trends and anomalies visually in a way that is normally difficult to do.


In conclusion, HeyKD’s large format screens, particularly the Digital Glass, offer a revolutionary approach to display technology. With its high-quality projection, versatility, and the ability to engage customers in a unique way, it stands out as a superior solution in the market.
