Retractable Screens with Motorized Masking

Do as professional commercial exhibitors do, mask your screen.

Believe it or not, covering part of the screen will help you see an image better. In most cases, you will view images in different aspect ratios; for example, standard TV format, widescreen, Cinemascope and HDTV. A masking system easily converts your screen from one aspect ratio to another. While you can watch an image on a screen with a different aspect ratio, it won’t be as enjoyable as it would be with an appropriate mask. An image, like a painting, looks better when it is framed. Your eye perceives an image with a black border as sharper than an image without a border. Why? The deep black increases the dynamic range your eye can discern. The Stewart masking system creates a sharp black border when an image is narrower or shorter than your screen. Use a mask to realize the sharpest possible image with multiple aspect ratios.
