Why Stewart



Denver, Colorado, September 13, 2006 In an exclusive collaboration, Stewart Filmscreen Corporation ‚ the industry leader in precision projection screen technology in the home cinema and commercial markets, and Lutron Electronics Co. Inc., the world leader in lighting control, have joined forces to bring to market the very first completely silent retractable projection screens.

All electric screens descend or ascend from their encasements with some degree of noise‚ until now. Lutron pioneered the Sivoia QED (Quiet Electronic Drive) technology to reduce the amount of noise associated with motorized window treatments. This technology applied exclusively to Stewart Filmscreen products will allow motorized screens to be operated in complete silence. The Sivoia QED will be available in Stewart Filmscreen‚Äôs notable Model A Electriscreen and Visionary screen‚Äîmaking these the quietest screens on the market.

"At Stewart Filmscreen we look for every opportunity to create the best possible products. With Lutron's exceptional Sivoia QED drive, we can offer our customers a truly precise motorized Electriscreen, one that is distinguished by its silence," says Thomas Stewart, vice president, of Stewart Filmscreen. "Not only will the 'Wow‚' factor of Stewart screens with Sivoia QED impress end users, but operation is flawless thanks to the tried-and-tested Sivoia QED technology."

Both companies are enthusiastic about the advanced integration possibilities that this product offers. Sivoia QED can fill additional roles in the projection environment, with the capability to seamlessly integrate into other systems, such as Lutron's HomeWorks® total home lighting control system.
