Stewart Filmscreen VistaScope 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
Two-Way, Continuously Variable, Vertical Masking Screen System
- A bespoke cinematic screen with a very large and loyal following
The statement product for super large flat screen with constant height, multi-aspect viewing experiences. VistaScope presents a native 2.40:1 aspect ratio and will matte any smaller aspect ratio exactly, via independent, digitally controlled, memory equipped masking elements. All masking panels feature crisp, leading edges and are made with specially chosen, super black and super acoustically transparent fabrics.
- Wall or aperture mounted
Made with the finest materials available and all hand-crafted by meticulous artisans, this projection screen system will make your home cinema a place of enjoyment for years to come.
- Choose constant image height from 2.40:1 to 1.33:1 aspect ratio
All of our CinemaScope formats feature the largest image areas available and are present in cinematic scale. Each additional format is achieved by reducing screen width. With VistaScope you can enjoy daily news and sports, as well as the latest movie releases — each presented in their ideal, perfect format.
- VistaScope EVO – reduced borders, fully retracting masking and bigger image
VistaScope EVO’s thinner borders and fully retractable masking deliver a cinematic “knockout” experience you won’t soon forget — VistaScope EVO puts you in the middle of the on-screen action. With its thinner 4 inch top and bottom borders, and 4.5 inch side borders, VistaScope EVO presents a bigger image and vividly improved viewing experience bar none. Scaling up to 80 x 192 inches, VistaScope EVO cleverly hides its advanced two-way continuously variable masking screen system behind the new thinner borders. And when matched with one of Stewart’s world-renown 16K+ reference screen materials like SnoMatte 100, StudioTek 100, StudioTek 130 G4, and soon to be announced, new knit weave — Harmony G2, VistaScope EVO ensures constant height, quick installation, and a stunning experience for all.
- Definitive CVM control system
Our Continuous Variable Masking (CVM) control system lets you program and preset aspect ratios with ease. The control system will integrate into most home automation systems easily and reliably.
- Use the exact same fabric the director used to make the film
Can be specified with any of Stewart’s 16K+ imaging surfaces along with MicroPerf X² as a frequent complement to further enhance the cinematic experience. Easy to size for images up to 12 feet in width. Want something even bigger? Check out VistaScope 300 for images up to 18 feet.
