Stewart Filmscreen Cascade Medeo 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
Retractable, Above Ceiling, Self-Finishing Screen System
- A superb, big image projection screen with a sleek, self-finishing flange
Cascade Medio furnishes a streamlined, self-finishing fascia that is intrinsic to the screen enclosure. The fascia mounts just beneath the screen and is in direct contact with the ceiling surface. This medium format screen system supports images up to 17 feet 6 inches in width and can include optional vertical or horizontal masking.
- Everyone gets a great seat
When needed, this medium size roller screen drops down efficiently and succinctly. The images on screen are presented with amazing, lifelike color accuracy and with 16K+ resolution capability.
- Our robust roller tube assembly sets the stage
Our roller tubes are engineered to carry the weight of the screen evenly and flawlessly. With a big screen, you need a big roller. We mill our own rollers to make sure that each screen has the perfect fit. With Stewart, your screen will deploy consistently, quietly, and with the proper 16K+ screen material that matches perfectly to your venue.
- Optional masking available
Dual aspect ratios can be achieved by adding either vertical (as shown) or horizontal masking to this screen system. A common choice for vertical masking is a constant height, native Scope aspect ratio of 2.39 or 2.35 which can then be masked down to 1.85 Academy Flat or 1.78 HD. With horizontal masking, you can start with a native of 4:3 and mask down to nearly every other aspect ratio. Additionally, all of our masking is acoustically transparent, giving just the right balance between sound transmission and absorption of stray light.
- Fastener free dust cover lends easy access
Cascade Medio has easy access to the roller assembly as well as to the control system. The case profile offers an elegant, above ceiling answer for delivery of a beautiful, seamless screen in sizes reaching 20 feet in diagonal. Cascade Medio is a great looking screen system in a category filled with clunky competitors.
- Ease of service capability insures many years of sterling service
As projectors and viewing formats evolve, Cascade Medio can be easily updated without destruction of the ceiling. Everything is accessed via the fastener-free dust cover for ease of maintenance or for a screen surface upgrade.
