Executive Overview

Stewart Filmscreens has just put your every argument about having a front projection system to bed. Sorry, you no longer have a leg to stand on. Don't believe us? Take a look at the new Transformer offering from Stewart.  

The Transformer is a three roller system. The rear roller will drop a black out screen. The middle roller drops the screen. The front roller will drop side masking for resizing your screen for your content. Don't understand? The picture above not explaining it enough? Well, you try taking a picture of black masking on top of a blackout screen. Here is Stewart's graphic explaining it:


Stewart Filmscreens showed off a 138" diagonal, 2.35:1 screen with the Firehawk LS screen material. It could switch from 2.35:1 to 16:1 with a touch of a button. They said that they had done installations that had custom blackout screens with cutouts for fireplaces, separate panels for windows, and more. This is a truly custom solution for making sure you have complete light control regardless of you room layout. The problem is the cost. Since this is a custom solution that is tailored for every room, they couldn't even give us an estimated cost. But with technology this cool and this specialized, you're best calling your custom installer and getting out your checkbook.

Stewart Filmscreens also announced a new Firehawk G4 screen material but they didn't have any to show at CEDIA this year. We're angling to get a hold of a screen to review soon. Stay tuned.
