Stewart Filmscreen Rigid Frame 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.

The Wedge Frame system was first developed for aerospace applications for use in cockpit simulation. Multiple units of irregular polygon shapes are combined to form an immersive powerhouse imaging system. The Wedge Frame module features a depth of 4 ¼ inches, front to back, with an acceptance angle designed for zero-edge, enabling light paths to merge at nearly any focal length. Each Wedge Frame system is custom-engineered and precision cut. Our lamination process, under our ISO 9001:2015 quality system, will result in a gorgeous visual display with superb fit and finish.
- Storefront frames install easily and scale beautifully
The Perimeter 1500 and Perimeter 2000 frames offer two different scales of the same frame and share a common function and feature set. These systems offer removable stops which allow installation from either the viewing or the projection side. The P1500 occupies just 2 inches, front to back, to compactly fit any aperture. The framing system adds 1 ¾ inches to the image area and works with any ¼ inch or ⅜ inch based rigid substrate — up to 10 feet in width. P2000 is ideal for larger, half inch thick glass and measures 3 inches, front to back, while adding 2 inches all around the image area. P2000 comfortably frames anything up to 29 feet 11 inches in width.
- Self-finishing QuickStall Frame with a modern clean aesthetic
The QuickStall Frame features a self-finishing casing that is intrinsic to the frame. The casing covers the immediate wall surface ½ inch all the way around the roughed in aperture. The frame system will support images up to 10 feet in width and features a 3 inch reveal all the way around the image area. The QuickStall Frame has a 2 ½ inch sill depth and measures 2 ¾ inches in total, front to back — including the self-finishing casing detail. This frame system finishes beautifully.
