Stewart Filmscreen® LuminEsse™ ‘Edgeless’ Fixed Frame Wall Screen Wins Best of Show Award at ISE 2015

TORRANCE, Calif. — (February 25, 2015) — Stewart Filmscreen®—an Academy Award® winning manufacturer of custom engineered projection screens and specialty optical coatings—has earned a Best of Show Award for its new LuminEsse fixed frame wall screen. Recognizing new and outstanding product technologies introduced in the past year but shown for the first time at ISE 2015, The NewBay Media ISE Best of Show Awards were judged by editors and industry professionals with votes based on technical innovation and potential impact to the AV industry.

Recognized by the AV industry as an award winning screen system within days of its International debut, Stewart Filmscreen’s LuminEsse™ is a new rigid front projection wall screen system with an ‘edgeless’ design that gives technology integrators, consultants, designers and property owners the ability to offer appreciable aesthetics in addition to the most appropriate screen material for the application. Differentiated in the marketplace by its versatile screen material configuration options, LuminEsse is available with most of Stewart Filmscreen’s 4K+ rated front projection materials, including FireHawk® G4, GrayHawk RS® G4, StudioTek 130, and more. LuminEsse delivers a stunning onscreen image with impressive uniformity that delivers crisp detail and an immersive viewing experience.

“It’s no secret that clients are more demanding than ever when it comes to having a great-looking screen whether the screen in in use or not. This means a ‘floating image’ experience when in use and an ‘edgeless’ art piece effect when not,” says Grant Stewart, President and CEO of Stewart Filmscreen. “Now, the technology professional can offer his or her clients just that, but with far more flexibility when it comes to specifying the right gain for the particular application plus the impeccable and impressive image quality that is synonymous with Stewart Filmscreen.”

The Best of Show Awards for the brands AV Technology, Residential Systems, and Digital Signage recognize new and outstanding products exhibited at the recent ISE 2015 show in Amsterdam, NL. The winners were selected by panels of professional users and editors, based on information provided by the nominated companies as well as booth visits during the show.

“ISE 2015 was a remarkable showcase for the latest technology and services for commercial and residential integrators and end users,” states Adam Goldstein, VP/Group Publisher, NewBay Media’s AV/Pro Audio Group. “These winning products in particular stood out, and promise to impact the AV industry throughout the year.”

All ISE 2015 Best of Show winners and nominees will be featured in a special Best of Show Awards Program Guide, to be distributed in digital edition form to readers of those publications.

About LuminEsse

With an elegant 3/8-inch thin bezel, LuminEsse fits modern expectations for more screen size, less visible framing system, while providing a sleek appearance, even when not being viewed. The LuminEsse front-projection wall screen features an optional LED backlighting kit that goes beyond wow factor to make viewing more comfortable. Scientifically speaking, the LED lighting acts as bias lighting, relaxing the iris of the eye and causing less strain during extended viewing. When the screen is on, the multicolored perimeter lighting enriches onscreen content and when off, it can be used to set the mood of the room.

“This isn’t a new category for Stewart per se, but it’s an exciting and enhanced product offering for sure. LuminEsse is demonstrative of the New Stewart Filmscreen. With this product and the others coming to market later this year, we are responding to the needs of technology professionals working on the front lines of the AV industry, delivering the broadest range of solutions to meet ever-increasing client demands,” furthered Stewart.

Available in sizes up to 120-inches (diagonal) in HD formats and in sizes up to 128-inches (diagonal) in Cinemascope® configurations, the LuminEsse rigid front projection wall screen utilizes Stewart’s wall mount system, making screen installation inexpensive, simple and fast. Additional mounting solutions will become available in the coming months.
