Stewart Filmscreen® Introduces Harmony™ Acoustically Transparent Woven Screen Material

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

New 4K+ rated woven acoustically transparent screen material suits needs of discerning audiophiles and cinephiles alike

TORRANCE, CA, USA — FEBRUARY 18, 2016 — Stewart Filmscreen®—Academy Award® winning manufacturer of high-performance projector screens and projector screen materials—announces Harmony™, its latest entry in the woven acoustically transparent screen material category. Visitors to ISE 2016, held February 9-12 at the RAI in Amsterdam, NL were the first to experience the visual and audio performance of Harmony as part of a 16-foot (4.875 meter) wide VistaScope Jumbo variable masking system that served as the centerpiece of a stunning multi-brand 21-channel Dolby™ Atmos-enhanced dedicated theater showcase.

Harmony can be specified up to 114-inch (2.895 meter) image height, which supports a 273.5-inch (6.947 meter) image width when presented in a 2.4:1 native aspect ratio. This is more than a 25% increase in the maximum size over its predecessor, Tela 80. Harmony is available now for specification in Stewart’s classic AT1.5 fixed frame wall screen as well as the VistaScope Jumbo system shown at ISE. Later this spring, Stewart will release Harmony for inclusion in its flagship Director’s Choice four-way variable masking system.

Harmony Screen Material

With a 0.8 gain screen material option that offers an 85-degree half gain angle, there is virtually no minimum throw distance requirement. This allows Harmony to fit into almost any room configuration, making it an incredibly versatile option. Harmony is a white screen surface with very neutral colorimetry and is ideally suited for applications with good lighting control.   

Harmony was designed with audiophiles and cinephiles in mind. Its acoustically transparent weave pattern is so fine that there is only a 1 dB impact to the high frequency response above 10 kHz. To help installers with light management, Harmony is packaged with a black, acoustically transparent back screen to eliminate interference from reflected light passing through the screen material. When utilized, the black back screen minimally impacts the high frequency response up to 2 dB.
