Stewart Filmscreen Starglas Video Projector Screen
The Basics: During the most recent CES, I was fortunate enough to stand in line amidst the thousand or so spectators all trying to catch a glimpse of Panasonic’s latest larger-than-thou plasma. I believe it was 150 inches. From where I was standing, 20 or so feet back, I wasn’t won over; I didn’t much care for their earlier 103-inch offering. What did win me over was that, the entire time I was getting a sunburn from the reactor it must have taken to power this monstrosity, I kept thinking of Stewart Filmscreen’s display at CEDIA just months before and the plasma they had on display. Except it wasn’t a plasma screen at all. It was a new screen material called Starglas and, when properly installed, the image was larger than the Panasonic in front of me and the picture quality ...

Stewart Filmscreen ElectriScope Video Projector Screen
The Basics: I like my screens to be retractable, largely due to the fact that I don’t have a dedicated viewing room. My living room doubles as my reference theater. I like my screen to be like my components: hidden. This said, it’s been hard until now to find a true 2.35:1 aspect ratio screen that a) is retractable and b) has variable masking for viewing 16:9 and 4:3 material. Stewart’s ElectriScope screen offers just that: a native CinemaScope experience, complete with motorized masking for every aspect ratio, all in a convenient and easy to hide electric roll-down screen.

Stewart Filmscreen CineCurve Video Projector Screen
The Basics: So, you just bought a state of the art projector complete with an anamorphic lens to take full advantage of the 2:35 CinemaScope aspect ratio, but your screen of old is only 16:9. Time to upgrade to Stewart’s CineCurve super-wide 2.40:1 aspect ratio screen. Unlike Stewart’s own Cine-W screen, the CineCurve features silent motorized masking to allow for content not originally captured in 2.35:1. Like all Stewart Screens, the CineCurve is custom-made to order, meaning you specify the size and screen material to suit your needs, budget and room. The CineCurve can be outfitted with any of Stewart’s fine screen materials, including their Cinemaperf and Microperf X2 finishes, which allow for speakers to be placed behind the curved screen.

Stewart Filmscreen Cine-W Video Projector Screen
The Basics: When it comes to projection screens, no one does it better than Stewart. From the consumer marketplace to some of the great movie houses the world over, you can bet if the picture is stunning, it owes a lot of its brilliance to a Stewart screen. However, up until now, the only place you could enjoy a true CinemaScope movie experience was in a theater. Not a company to leave well enough alone when it comes to top-performing home theater systems, Stewart has pioneered and released their Cine-W lineup of screens, which not only features a true CinemaScope aspect ratio (2.35:1), but also a slightly curved screen surface for better picture uniformity. I should mention that in order to take full advantage of the Cine-W’s real estate, your projector will have to be compatible with an anamorphic lens, as ...
