Stewart Filmscreen Cima AC 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 Screen System
- Easy to specify and a dream to install
Cima AC is a cleanly detailed, above ceiling retractable screen featuring two exceptional optical fabrics. Choose either Neve, an exemplary matte white imaging surface, or Tiburon G4, a neutral density gray matte surface, specially formulated for aiding black level performance. ETL approved, Cima AC comes in preconfigured size ranges, as well as in HD, Scope or 16:10 formats. Each screen comes standard with a 6 or 12 inch black drop, as well as a versatile, standard control package. Cima AC combines exceptional quality with affordability.
- A super clean case profile
The Cima AC case is a compact, nicely detailed design element that will work in almost any venue. Above ceiling screens are more easily installed prior to ceiling finishes. However, the self-finishing bezel of this screen makes installation into an existing ceiling noticeably easier and super tidy.
- A proprietary control system is integrated into the screen case
The Cima screen controller features 12 volt trigger functionality, or low voltage up-down-stop capability. Installation is super easy with a pigtail or AC power cord that is furnished for the line voltage connection and a convenient RJ25 connector on the exterior of the case for convenient, control hookup. Alternatively, an available upgraded controller can offer enhanced signaling options when IR, serial or IP control is required.
- Also available as a non-tensioned electric screen
Cima AC-NT is a cleanly detailed, above ceiling retractable screen featuring a non-tensioned, tab free screen surface. Each screen comes with a minimum of 12 inches of continuously variable black drop and includes a versatile, standard control package integrated into the screen enclosure. Choose between our most requested, preconfigured size ranges in either HD or 16:10 formats. Our durable, Estero 100 fabric is standard on Cima AC-NT and will give many years of quality image projection.
- Great fit and finish
Cima AC installs beautifully and finishes with an easy-to-remove dust cover. Featuring a proprietary roller tube and a quiet, dependable motor, this screen knows how to work.
- Ceiling recessed and out of sight
