The VistaScope, a member of the Stewart’s Variable Masking screen line, features a native 2.40:1 image area allowing for full enjoyment when viewing movies in super widescreen formats. Vertical masking panels glide in from the left and right side providing multi-aspect ratio capabilities. This unique fixed masking screen assists in eliminating unsightly black bars from the viewing area to provide you with a picture perfect image.

Optimize your VistaScope with Stewart’s award-winning front or rear projection materials. Microperf X2 is available when acoustic transparency is required (acoustically transparent panels also available upon request).

Stewart’s exclusive VeLux™ black-velvet appliqué gives the VistaScope a luxurious look and feel. This specialized frame finish absorbs possible over-scan while boosting perceived contrast.

The Binary Reciprocal intelligent Control System, nicknamed "The BRIC," is the industry's first microprocessor-based control device designed for precision setting of multiple masking presets, elimination of multiple controllers for a single screen, and eliminates the setup time required by existing analog controllers.

Until now, programming electriscreen or electrimask settings were done at the factory either during production stages or by the installer (a very time consuming and expensive process). Programming consists of automating your screen or masking panels to be set to a standard size (16:9, 4:3, 1.85:1 or custom sizes). This estimated 4-8 hour down time for programming was the norm. Programming your screen settings are as simple as programming your DVD player. It can be done in 5-mintues once the screen is set up. BRIC also allows quick compatibility with a variety of control systems.

BRIC is the first digital motor control system with multiple connection systems for external interfaces (RS-232/RS-422) using CAT 5 connections, external Screen Trigger Interfaces using 18 gauge wire, and external IR and/or keypad interfaces using CAT 5 (or CAT 3) connections. Depending on your BRIC model, Stewart will supply a wall keypad and/or IR remote. Also connect to your BRIC system with any AMX/Crestron type controller or standard PC.
