|Torrance, CA – October 15, 2010 - Stewart Filmscreen Corporation®, industry leader in precision projection screen technologies for the residential and commercial markets, announces Silver 5D (3D + 2D), an innovative fabric that offers industry leading passive 3D polarization while
maintaining outstanding performance for 2D sources. It preserves the
performance of Stewart's leading Silver 3D fabric while improving
uniformity, reducing hot spotting and offers a significantly wider viewing
cone than previously available or competitive fabrics. Available in
seamless sizes up to 40" x 90", Stewart plans to roll out this new hybrid 5D
fabric over the next quarter with fixed frame units available the fourth
quarter of 2010. MicroPerforated Silver 5D products are planned for the
first quarter of 2011.
Stewart has applied a huge effort in R&D in developing an improved polarization preserving screen technology with reduced artifacts that allows a single screen material to function more adequately with non-polarized 2D projected source material. Stewart is now bringing the fruits of the effort to market in the Silver 5D.
The Silver 5D material has been designed to be compatible with Stewart's CineCurve, Directors Choice masking systems and all other premium Stewart fixed mounting systems. Suggested retail of a typical application of the Silver 5D that includes a ten-foot wide 2.4:1 CineCurve with 2-way AcoustiMask system with MicroPerfing will be $19,799.00.
