Stewart Filmscreen Balón Series Projector Screen
We’ve made Hollywood sparkle with excitement, home cinemas glow with wonder, and conference halls shine with inspiration.
We are driven by a passion to continually craft products that are smarter, stronger and perfectly fit for you.
Some call us old fashioned, we call it caring.
More importantly, we call it taking responsibility for what we build and valuing the people we build it for.
Handcrafted from the molecular level.
Simply put, we do it ourselves, from start to finish. Beginning with raw plastic resins and pigments, we compound and form them into finished fabrics and continue through with thoughtful frame design and construction.
One screen does not fit all projection needs.
Projection conditions vary. That is why we are application driven. Room seating, throw distances, ambient lighting, front and rear projection requirements, 3D workflow, and other factors all impact the image on the screen. Stewart makes over 25 different screen materials to meet the demands of each projection environment. As always, each screen is meticulously custom made for your specific application.
Uniformity and color accuracy are everything.
Do you want the best viewing experience? Only Stewart can promise and deliver color uniformity no matter your viewing angle. Additionally, you can rest assured that the colors coming from your projector are not being altered by the screen.
We’re the reference screen.
When major movie production companies need a screen for their post-production editing as well as for their screening rooms, they come to Stewart – and they have for a long time. SnoMatte 100, StudioTek 100, StudioTek 130 G4, and UltraMatte 130 are the reference screens. These unrivaled screens deliver the director’s vision — to see their films in true, life rendering colors and with center to edge uniformity.
Unmatched quality, always seamless.
“Virtually seamless” is not the same as seamless. All seams become detectable over time. Uneven tensions are at work on either side of any seam. As the fabric ages, irregularities appear. Dirt and dust can also accumulate along the seam. On roller screens, seams turn into repeating impressions of horizontal bars which will appear in the viewing area. With Stewart, you never have seams. All the way to 40 by 90 feet – unmatched in the industry.
Projectors come and go, but Stewart projection screens remain.
Many of our customers tell us how they have gone through multiple projector upgrades while their Stewart screen continues to perform perfectly. You know you are getting durability and a lasting quality when you purchase Stewart.
The masters of masking.
Our masking systems feature closed loop digital control interfaces, all encoder equipped to store positions. Each one is simple to program, jog, and will work flawlessly with all room automation systems. Our masking fabrics have been carefully sourced to combine deep black absorption of stray light with superb acoustical transparency.
Preferred large venue screen.
When the world’s leading companies bring their new products and creativity to market via keynote presentations, Stewart Filmscreen is asked to provide the perfect, large format surface to deliver their message. We make the largest, seamless framed and roller screens available and our customers trust us to get it right. Every time.
Academy Award winning screens.
We are the only screen manufacturer to win an Academy Award (two in total) for technical merit — a testament to our commitment to constantly create the best screens imaginable — and maybe a little unimaginable as well.
Unrivaled technical support.
We maintain a team of qualified customer service professionals to help with any questions or concerns. We also offer experienced field technicians to help with field service management. Whether you need an install, a rescreen, or commissioning work, our team of experts will respond quickly to give you maximum uptime.
Made in the USA.
We are proud to manufacture all of our projection screens and screen materials in our production facilities in California and Ohio. As a fourth generation, family-owned business, we value the expertise and workmanship of our employees. Our team helps to design and handcraft every custom screen as we closely monitor each stage of the manufacturing and QC process.
Features & Specifications
Borderless, or Minimally Bordered Fixed Frame Screen System
- Choose a borderless, or minimally bordered fixed frame screen system
This is the most progressive wraparound frame available on the market. With optional LED lighting capability, great scalability and offered with Stewart’s most in-demand screen materials, the new Balón Series checks all the boxes — all with keeping the image plane within one and one-half inches off the wall’s surface. Choose Balón Edge with a minimal, half-inch black over scan border, giving on-screen content perceived contrast and a crisp edge. Or choose Balón Borderless where there is no black border, allowing the image on the screen to appear to float in the room.
- Stewart world-renowned quality
Every detail of this screen sets the standard for how every other screen will be judged. With Stewart Filmscreen optically-engineered screen material, the on-screen images will leave you breathless.
- Super slim and perfectly detailed
Beautifully detailed, featuring an ultra-thin profile and a well-constructed frame, Balón Borderless can scale up, providing a big screen image that is surprisingly close to the wall’s surface. The black over scan border can be added later if a framed-look is desired.
- Go big — at home!
Balón will scale up to 16 feet in diagonal so you can enjoy all your favorite on-screen content from anywhere in the room.
- Well-engineered and purposeful
The frame construction makes attachment of the screen material easy and intuitive. From the front, all you’ll see is a 1/2 inch black Velux border, providing a crisp, sharp image. The back hides all the material, leaving a clean and tidy finish. Simply unmatched.
- Flush Mount bracketing system
The new Flush Mount bracketing system makes hanging the Balón screen quick and easy. The brackets are made to keep the back of the screen’s surface next to the wall. With the tight fit to the wall, there is no worry about optional LED lighting washing out the image on the screen.
- More framing details
This frame system checks all the boxes! Easy to assemble. Flat to the wall. LED light rail at 60 degrees for perfect light disbursement.
