Stewart Filmscreen’s New Gemini Dual Projection Screen System Chosen For Acoustic Evolution Showroom

The difference is night and day when two projection screens are combined in one system

TORRANCE, CA (December 7, 2017) Stewart Filmscreen®— the only two-time Academy Award®-winning manufacturer of professional projection screens and reference standard, projection screen materials for the audiovisual industry, not only debuted an impressive new dual-roller projection screen system called Gemini™ during CEDIA 2017, but also celebrated the first installation of its award-winning product at the Acoustic Evolution showroom in San Diego. Featuring Stewart’s reference standard StudioTek or SnoMatte screen materials and Phantom HALR™ high ambient light rejection screen material on two separate rollers, the Gemini screen system features a contemporary new case designed to accommodate dual aspect ratios for both HDTV (16:9) and CinemaScope (2:35:1) viewing experiences. Delivering a true big screen experience, Gemini can accommodate Phantom HALR screens up to 156-inches diagonal and StudioTek or SnoMatte screens up to 196-inches diagonal.

Gemini Plays a Starring Role in Dealer Showroom
Home technology professionals recognize the opportunity Gemini represents and say it’s the solution they’ve been looking for because it provides a simplified and superior approach to delivering a best-in-class entertainment experience, day or night. As such, Gemini was specified and installed in the San Diego showroom of Stewart Filmscreen dealer Acoustic Evolution, where it is the showroom centerpiece. Paired with a Barco Balder Cinemascope projector, the Gemini system uses a 16:9 aspect ratio Phantom HALR screen for daytime viewing, and StudioTek 100 screen in 2.35 widescreen format for nighttime movie watching.

“Media rooms and open space plans are all the rage today, and Gemini gives me the capability to show large-format video, along with the ability to watch movies in these areas,” says Allen Tremble of Acoustic Evolution. “Being motorized makes the system especially appealing. It’s there when you need it and rolls up, out of the way, when not in use. Now you see it, now you don’t,” Tremble adds. “It’s also an easy install, thanks to Gemini’s well-designed enclosure that simply drops into a framed hole.”

Recognizing it as a unique, problem-solving solution, AVS Forums awarded Gemini a Best of CEDIA Award.

Best of Both Worlds Viewing Capabilities Simplify Sales
For integrators, the introduction of Gemini presents a new opportunity to easily and effectively sell two-piece projection systems. The necessity to explain aspect ratios, content formats, and the effects of ambient light on the overall viewing experience, coupled with the necessary question “which screen material should we use?” often presents recurring challenges that complicate the sales process. Gemini solves this problem.

Because Gemini offers a screen system that provides “best of both worlds” viewing, it doesn’t matter if the customer wants to watch news or sports during the day, and movies at night. With dual screen materials and aspect ratios, Gemini means consumers no longer have to choose a single screen type to fit their viewing preference. Now, they can have it all in one projection screen system.

Stewart Filmscreen Balόn™ Borderless Also Earned Accolades at CEDIA 2017
The Gemini system shared the CEDIA spotlight with another Stewart Filmscreen innovation making its residential debut. Balόn™ Borderless, a new fixed frame projection screen, provides a contemporary, “floating image” appearance throughout the home or in dedicated theaters took home a 2017 CE Pro BEST Award in the Projection Screen category. Judges selected products based on various criteria including innovation, functionality, competitive advantages, as well as benefits to the end user and the integrator. Balόn™ Borderless also earned a Residential Systems Best of Show award, which honors outstanding products and solutions exhibited at CEDIA 2017.

Multiple award wins and enthusiastic dealer response for Stewart Filmscreen’s latest solutions stand as a testament to the company’s incredible innovation and engineering expertise. As Stewart celebrates its 70th year and the Next Generation of people, products, and technological advancements in screen design, the company encourages integrators and consumers to consider what’s possible with two-piece projection and Stewart’s timeless offerings.

Stewart Filmscreen Dual Roller Screen Gemini™ Debuts During CEDIA 2017

Revolutionary dual projection screen system design delivers optimal image fidelity and experience in any environment, day or night

 TORRANCE, CA (August 2017) Stewart Filmscreen®—the only two-time Academy Award®-winning manufacturer of professional projection screens and reference standard, projection screen materials for the audiovisual industry, has announced the introduction and CEDIA debut of a new dual-roller projection screen system called Gemini™. This impressive new screen system includes a contemporary new case designed with dual aspect ratios to accommodate both HDTV (16:9) and Widescreen Cinema Scope (2:35:1) viewing experiences. CEDIA attendees can stop by booth #5329 and view the Gemini projector screen system during CEDIA from September 7 – 9, 2017 in the San Diego Convention Center.

Gemini: Two Screens for the Whole Family
When designing video systems in multi-use media rooms and gathering spaces, home technology professionals often need to choose between a screen material that will offer a true cinematic experience within a home theater or one that will perform well in high-ambient light conditions. Stewart Filmscreen’s Gemini projection screen system offers both in a sleek, contemporary package. Now, integrators, consultants, and their customers can get the best of both worlds, with two reference-grade screen materials offering two different aspect ratios. Users can automatically change the screen material and aspect ratio from 16:9 HDTV to 2.35:1 Cinemascope with the push of a button or via voice control when paired with third party options like the wildly popular Amazon Echo and others. Gemini is the perfect solution for home theaters, family rooms, and any other gathering space where people watch movies, stream media or content from the Internet, watch sports, or play video games. Simply select the appropriate aspect ratio for the content, and the finest screen material for the viewing conditions will immediately be deployed.

During its CEDIA 2017 debut, Gemini will be equipped with Stewart Filmscreen’s StudioTek™ material with a 2:35 aspect ratio, which is available in sizes up to 196-inches diagonal and perfect for family movie night in a dark, home cinema environment. Gemini will also be shown with Phantom™ HALR™, Stewart Filmscreen’s high ambient light rejection screen material in a 16:9 aspect ratio ideal for viewing streaming content, sports, and other content in bright conditions. Gemini can accommodate Phantom HALR screens up to 156 inches diagonal.

Both screens roll up into Gemini’s unobtrusive casing when not in use, ensuring that home technology professionals can maintain the desired design aesthetics of any room.

With the flexibility to deliver the best image performance and fidelity in any lighting environment and the ideal aspect ratios to view any content—from game day with friends to family movie night—Gemini is the perfect screen solution for the whole family.

Flexible, Rollable, and Acoustically Transparent
Gemini is available in a variety of flexible, front projection configurations to meet the needs of the modern home. Acoustically transparent options are also available using Stewart Filmscreen’s proprietary Cinemaperf or Microperf X2 THX Ultra perforated material options. As always, Stewart Filmscreen projection screen solutions come in a wide variety of sizes and are always flame resistant for added safety.

Easy to Spec, Easy to Install
The Gemini system has a number of features and benefits that make it a top choice for integrators and home technology professionals seeking a multi-purpose projection system for any room of the home. The lightweight screen housing comes in a choice of black or white case color to match any décor, and a four-corner mounting system for ceiling recessed installations. Optional wall-mount brackets are available for applications where wall mounting is preferred. The unit ships fully-assembled with a three-prong power connection, making it a true plug-and-play solution. The system comes complete with dual Somfy screen motors for powerful, nearly silent operation with superior timing and exceptional durability for years of use.

Compatible with Today’s Popular Control Systems
Adding to Gemini’s ease-of-use and functionality, the Gemini Screen System uses a dual IMC control, which can include a 12-volt trigger on the IMC or add the optional IBT 100 for RS-232 connection. Gemini is also compatible with today’s most popular home automation and control systems, including Crestron, AMX, and Savant.

“At Stewart, we pride ourselves on listening to the market. The new Gemini dual roller screen system provides consumers with the ability to enjoy their favorite sports and movies with the best image fidelity and performance, all with one screen application. We’re excited to present this new product offering to the market at CEDIA 2017 and hope that attendees will stop by and witness the ultimate viewing experience for themselves,” said Shannon Townley, Stewart Filmscreen President and CEO.

Stewart Filmscreen Celebrates 70 Years of Innovation with The Next Generation of People and Products at CEDIA 2017

From the innovative Phantom™ HALR™ to the Balόn™ Borderless floating screen, Stewart Filmscreen’s continued legacy of excellence showcases projection screen solutions for every application

TORRANCE, CA (August 2017) Stewart Filmscreen®—the only two-time Academy Award®-winning manufacturer of projection screens and projection screen materials for the audiovisual industry, celebrates 70 years of innovation and excellence with The Next Generation during CEDIA 2017.

Demonstrating an unyielding commitment to meeting the ever-increasing demands of the marketplace with a contemporary approach to screen design, Stewart Filmscreen will once again showcase its legendary quality and performance.

“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. 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,” notes Shannon Townley, CEO and President of Stewart Filmscreen.

Gemini Dual-Roller ElectriScreen Gives the Best Image in Any Environment
The Gemini brings duality to a whole new level. With 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. End users enjoy the best of both worlds: they can call every shot on game day with images so bright they’ll feel like they’re at the stadium, or appreciate incredible depth of detail, nestled in the dark during family movie night. Day or night, from sports to movies, Gemini provides an exceptional home viewing experience, outfitted with Stewart Filmscreen’s best screen materials including Phantom HALR.

Stylish Balόn™ Borderless Screen Produces a “Floating Image” Effect
CEDIA17 marks the residential debut of Stewart’s sophisticated new screen, Balόn™ Borderless, 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 unique beveled frame structure that allows the material to wrap around and snap smoothly into place behind the screen, Balόn Borderless utilizes Stewart Filmscreen’s EZ-Mount Bracket System to streamline installation and ensure a consistently level image. The borderless design focuses the audience’s attention on the image providing a more immersive entertainment experience. Available with most Stewart Filmscreen materials, including proprietary acoustically transparent options, Balόn Borderless helps integrators and consultants tailor the projection screen experience to best suit the needs of the user, application, and environment.

Cascade ElectriScreen Combines Elegance and Image Fidelity
Stewart’s new Cascade™ ElectriScreen takes over where the new and already popular, Torrent™ can’t go. Illustrative of Stewart Filmscreen’s contemporary new case styling and other product line refinements, this large ElectriScreen system is elegantly engineered to fit in tight spaces and areas where access or ceiling height is a challenge. Home technology professionals and residential integrators will enjoy Cascade’s ease of installation, while customers will love the clean, contemporary look it provides in their home theater, media room, or family gathering space.

Phantom™ HALR™ Crushes Multi-Directional Ambient Light
Now shipping, Stewart Filmscreen’s Phantom HALR (high ambient light rejection) screen represents the culmination of decades of engineering expertise. This highly differentiated 1.0 gain flexible front projection material leads the category with features not available with any other ALR screen option on the market. 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. Proven to outperform in real world applications where light doesn’t come from directly above, Phantom HALR combats multi-directional light with a scientifically proven approach that ensures the audience gets the best picture possible in the brightest of environments.

Cima® by Stewart Filmscreen – Value Engineered Solutions
Cima by Stewart Filmscreen features a lineup of right-sized and right-priced screen solutions for common applications. The Cima line is anything but typical, providing Stewart Filmscreen’s legendary quality with faster shipping times and “no-wait production.” When clients need the best and need it now, value-engineered Cima screens are made to fit the bill.

Ambient Light Crushing Projection ScreensPhantom HALR in high-light setting - KMB PR
Where other screens leave off in their ability to reject ambient light, the award-winning Phantom™ HALR™ High Ambient Light Rejection Screen is just getting started. In real world applications, light does not come from directly above. Phantom goes beyond other ambient light rejection screens by combating multi-directional light for increased performance in bright environments. Stewart, a vertically integrated manufacturer, produces film screen materials and optical coatings in-house in Torrance, California, and uniquely engineers each optical coating, to maintain rigid, ISO-certified production procedures and quality control.

Stewart Filmscreen goes large! Now available in seamless sizes up to 40 by 90 feet. No other screen manufacturer can come close!  Phantom can be rolled for motorized screen configurations and perforated for acoustic transparency. Phantom is also UHD and HDR ready, making it virtually future-proof to accommodate advances in resolution and consumer demand.

Pufferfish and Stewart Filmscreen - Projection GlobeInteractive Multi-touch Projection Surfaces
Stewart Filmscreen’s exhibit will also showcase interactive, multi-touch, spherical displays in conjunction with partner Pufferfish, a company that specializes in spherical projection systems using Stewart optical coatings. With decades of experience manufacturing optical coatings for front and rear projection applications, Stewart has been at the forefront of the interactive globe and hemisphere system development since 1947. InfoComm attendees are invited to come experience these complex and innovative spherical screen solutions at booth #3121.

Commercial Screens for Any Application
Those visiting InfoComm can see Stewart Filmscreen’s new Cascade™ ElectriScreen at booth #3121. The Cascade ElectriScreen takes over where the ever popular, Torrent™ can’t go! This large-venue ElectriScreen system—designed with corporate campuses, educational institutions, high-rises, and houses of worship in mind—gives installers and consultants the option of an elegant recessed roller screen. Designed and engineered to fit tight spaces, Cascade will make your next installation a thing of ease and beauty! Also making its debut is Stewart Filmscreen’s new Balόn Borderless™ screen, which provides a seemingly “floating” look that only a true borderless frame, can offer!

LED Video Wall Enhancement SystemsFIDELEDY Vision 40
Revealed for the first time to an international audience at ISE 2017, the award-winning FIDELEDY Vision 40 diffusion material and screen system represents the Next Generation of LED video wall image enhancements. FIDELEDY is perfectly suited for indoor, high-ambient light applications where a lower transmission level and the improved contrast ratio is required to deliver a powerfully uniform image fidelity—especially in digital signage and broadcast applications. Set designers, stage managers, consultants and AV integrators, alike, love the shallow depth and bright images of LED video walls. The FIDELEDY Vision 40 LED enhancement system makes viewing even better by eliminating distracting moiré interference. We enjoy collaborating with our partners at InfoComm. Stop by booth #1600 to see our FIDELEDY screens in the NEC exhibit.
