Stewart screens will work beautifully with a wide range of projectors. Image size and projector light output can be matched to the appropriate Stewart fabric, yielding predictable professional results. For the best image, the picture should not be viewed at angles greater than 45 percent off-axis or outside a 90-degree seating cone. The best projection results are obtained in darkened rooms, enhancing black/white contrast and picture resolution. However, there are installations such as residential media rooms, corporate boardrooms and large meeting rooms where a certain amount of ambient light will always be present. In those cases, gray screen technology is most likely the best option. Another solution is to prevent extraneous lighting from being directed at the screen.

Higher lumen output projectors match well with lower gain screen surfaces. Hot spot artifacts are minimized; resolution and viewing angles are increased. Projectors with lower lumen output can be augmented with a quality Stewart high gain screen. Brightness is retrieved and the image emerges even when ambient light control is not optimum. Contact your projector manufacturer for required information pertaining to image size, focal length of lens and ANSI lumen output.



 


   


FIREHAWK G4


FireHawk G4 is a flexible front projection screen surface engineered for use with today’s high-powered projection technology in applications involving the presence of ambient light. Ambient light is the enemy of two-piece projection. Screens designed to reject ambient light can be effective at furnishing an image in even the brightest of rooms, but the trade-off is the presence of unwanted artifacts such as color-shift, hot-spotting, and poor off-axis viewing. Stewart Filmscreen is in the business of image fidelity, and FireHawk was designed to provide the best possible tradeoff between image fidelity and ambient light resistance. With improvements to uniformity and off-axis viewing, G4 brings FireHawk even closer to the reference quality and image fidelity that have long been synonymous with Stewart Filmscreen.

FEATURES
• 1.1 Gain with 35 degree Half-Gain 
• Best-in-class uniformity
• Completely opaque material 
• Reduced hot-spotting and virtual elimination of “speckle” effect
• Reduced color-shift in off-axis viewing



GRAYHAWK RS G3

GrayHawk RS G3 is an innovative front projection screen surface designed to maximize the performance of today’s 1080p technology. The G3’s ultra-fine optical coating improves uniformity for consistent brightness across the entire screen. This unique feature, combined with the neutral density gray base, dramatically increases black levels, shadow detailing and overall color saturation providing the viewer with maximum resolution and superb image quality. GrayHawk RS G3 is an excellent tool for lowering the black floor with high output projectors, without losing off axis performance and viewing cone width.

FEATURES
- Industry’s first gray-based reference standard screen
- Re-formulated optical coating allows for enhanced focusing capabilities
- Superior performance in environments with ambient light
- Offers superb black levels, shadow detailing, and overall color saturation
- Increased image contrast and resolution
- Certified by THX
- Certified by the Imaging Science Foundation (ISF)
