Stewart Filmscreen is celebrating 70 years during CEDIA 2017 next week, with new products like Gemini, Balón Borderless, and Cascade making their residential debut, while others like Phantom HALR and Cima serve to remind the integration community of what’s possible.
“Over Stewart’s 70-year history, innovation has driven our success. Stewart Filmscreen has brought many unique ideas to life, and as you walk the CEDIA show floor, our technology footprint is evident,” noted Shannon Townley, CEO and president of Stewart Filmscreen. “Our new Gemini projection screen will give viewers the best of both worlds — unique screen solutions for immersive viewing applications. Folks who see Gemini will enjoy a truly cinematic viewing experience with films and motion pictures while having a light-rejecting material for use when the lights are on. In the age of ‘multi-use,’ Stewart is delivering a flexible, functional, and superior solution to meet the practical needs of our customers.”
The Gemini features two rollers, enabling users to choose the ultimate screen material for any environment, professional quality imagery comes to the home theater, family room, or elsewhere in the modern home. Gemini is outfitted with Stewart Filmscreen’s best screen materials including Phantom HALR.
The Balón Borderless is a new fixed-frame projection screen system from Stewart Filmscreen that provides a contemporary, “floating image” appearance throughout the home or in dedicated theaters. Featuring a beveled frame structure that allows the material to wrap around and snap smoothly into place behind the screen, Balón Borderless utilizes Stewart Filmscreen’s EZ-Mount Bracket System to streamline installation and ensure a consistently level image. Available with most Stewart Filmscreen materials, including proprietary acoustically transparent options, Balón Borderless helps integrators tailor the projection screen experience to best suit the needs of the user, application, and environment.
Stewart’s new Cascade ElectriScreen takes over where the new Torrent can’t go. Illustrative of Stewart Filmscreen’s contemporary new case styling and other product line refinements, this large ElectriScreen system is engineered to fit in tight spaces and areas where access or ceiling height is a challenge.
Now shipping, Stewart Filmscreen’s Phantom HALR (high ambient light rejection) screen represents the culmination of decades of engineering expertise. This 1.0 gain flexible front projection material offers features not available with any other ALR screen option on the market, according to Stewart. It can be rolled for motorized ElectriScreen configurations, perforated for acoustic transparency applications using Stewart Filmscreen’s exclusive Cinemaperf or Microperf X2 THX Ultra options, is available in sizes up to 40 x 90 feet, and delivers higher resolution capabilities thanks to Stewart’s proprietary chemical compositions.
Cima by Stewart Filmscreen features a lineup of right-sized and right-priced screen solutions for common applications. The Cima line is provides Stewart Filmscreen quality with faster shipping times and “no-wait production.”
LuminEsse demonstrates what the company calls “sublime aesthetics” and delivers an immersive viewing experience in virtually any environment. This fixed frame, high-performance projection screen system can be configured with most of Stewart’s flexible front-projection materials, which are laminated to a super-thin, rigid substrate that ensures the screen remains flat.
To mark its anniversary, Stewart Filmscreen invites CEDIA17 attendees to join the team as the industry tips their glasses to toast 70 Years of Innovation and Excellence during a party in the Stewart booth 5329 on Thursday, September 7, from 3:00-5:00 p.m. Beer and cocktails will be served.
