VuTec ArtScreen

What do you do when you have a favorite room in the house that is filled with precious art, but rarely gets used? You’d love to have a television in this room so the room can get used more frequently.

In this traditional living space the client wanted to have a TV, but they did not want it to dominate the space. This Vutec Motorized ArtScreen was the solution in transforming the room from a quiet, art decorated living room, to a fully functional, media living space while keeping the look and feel of the room intact.

The Vutec Artscreen hides your TV behind framed artwork of your choice and becomes part of the room’s decor when not in use.

The first step in this project is to choose what art you would like to have displayed. This can be your favorite painting, an original piece of art, or some of the stock images we have on file. Next, a high resolution image is created from your art and a process called Giclée (oil on canvas) is performed to create an image that so closely resembles the original, you’ll be hard pressed to tell the difference. The newly created artwork can now be installed on the roller system used by the Artscreen.

Finally, you will pick a frame from the huge selection that Vutec provides. In the project presented here, the client chose a black frame to contrast the beautiful blue colors of the picture.

At first glance, this appears to be a standard framed picture. However this is not the case.

From Vutec: Motorized Artwork System automatically reveals television when in use. System includes re-creating or incorporated actual custom artwork. ArtScreen transforms a Flat Panel Display into a work of art. Inside a beautiful frame, the artwork ascends or descends with the touch of a remote. When the screen or television is not in use, the digital art-on canvas image of your choosing is displayed within the frame. When your artwork is retracted, the video display is visible for viewing. There are many frame styles to choose from.

The great news is that we now have a Vutec Artscreen in our Novato showroom. Please contact us for a personalized consultation so that we can show you this stunning piece of technology in person!
