Stewart Filmscreen Visionary 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
Retractable, Above Ceiling, Self-Finishing Screen System with Two-Piece Construction
- Ideal, two-piece construction for the forward-thinker
Visionary is a family of self-finishing, above ceiling screen systems. This two-piece retractable screen with a self-finishing flange comes in three different size options — all the way up to 16 feet 4 inches of image width. Visionary’s rough in housing can be split-shipped for early installation of the screen case during the pre-construction phase. When construction is complete, we can ship the screen and bezel. Now, how visionary is that? Our adjustable drywall stops accommodate any ceiling treatment, and the extruded aluminum flange has great fit and finish.
- Three accommodating sizes, one great solution
We customize each roller tube to make sure our screen material deploys with even tension and with a smooth, wrinkle free surface. With our standard 3 inch roller tube, Visionary can go up to 10 feet 3 inches in image width.
- Sometimes, you need just a little more image width
When a bigger image is needed, our 3 inch Mamba Tube will provide the needed strength to carry more weight on the roller without having to step up in size and price to the 6 inch roller tube. This can save money and still get you the image size that you need.
- For a larger image, Visionary Medio is the answer
This screen system will give you all the advantages of two-piece construction for your rough in and give you an amazingly large image size — up to 16 feet 4 inch image width. Depending on the aspect ratio, you can get a 20 foot diagonal in 16:10, a 19 foot 10 inch diagonal in HD, or an 18 foot 10 inch diagonal image in Scope. Our customized 6 inch roller tube will carry the weight of the screen fabric and deploy a beautiful 16K+ Stewart fabric with ease.
- All the bells and whistles
It’s easy to protect the fit and finish of the screen fabric and bezel if they remain safely boxed away from the typical turmoil of a rough in stage construction site. When it comes time to assemble, Visionary comes together intuitively with a modular plug for electric interface and simple, threaded fasteners. We supply a speed wrench with the screen to assist in seating the bezel assembly into the housing. You will absolutely love this screen.
- This screen gets major love
Why? Because other trades can work around the rough-in enclosure without fear of damaging the projection screen.
- Just what you wanted
At the end of construction, the roller tube assembly with accompanying screen — along with the one-piece, aluminum bezel — are efficiently installed. Everything works as planned. Easy money.
