PERFORATED WINDOW FILM Contra Vision, Atlanta, introduces Contra Vision HD Performance. This break-through micro- perforated window film delivers bigger and better image impact and a much smoother see-through view than any perfo- rated film available. One-way vision window films that look like solid graphics have wide-ranging applications, says Contra Vision. Any brand, specifier or printer that has ruled perforated window films out of contention with solid graphics because of image resolution or see-through experience issues can now revisit that decision and prepare to be surprised by the quality improvement deliv- ered by Contra Vision HD Performance. Unlike any traditional perforated window film, the observer has to be close enough to touch Contra Vision HD Performance to see that it's per- forated at all. The product's construction means that images printed on its brilliant-white design side retain a greater amount of the fine detail that's normally lost when printing perforated films.
