Stewart Filmscreen WallMask 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.

Features & Specifications
Fixed Frame Screen System with Various Masking Options
- Match your viewing preferences perfectly with precision masking
Deciding what masking to add to a two-piece projection system can seem challenging. Let us intelligently steer you through the process to guarantee your install precisely matches your viewing preferences. We start with a single position, constant height system, deployment masks — giving you a choice of two, perfectly masked aspect ratios. We also offer constant width iterations which provide continuously variable image aspect ratios from the native resolution of your projector to the widest CinemaScope formats possible. Hybrid, four-way systems, combining the two approaches, are also available and will deliver a legacy 4:3 aspect ratio that vintage film cinephiles will love.
- We are the masters of masking
With masking, there are no gray bars on the screen when aspect ratios change. Masking also adds perceived contrast to the image, making colors more vibrant and alive. Our deep black velvet Velux fabric also absorbs stray light overscan while enhancing the system’s visual appeal.
- Choose vertical masking for two aspect ratios
When you desire a straightforward, simplified system featuring two possible image areas, our WallMask VM with vertical masking is a great choice. A typical configuration is a native Scope screen that will mask down to HD when side masking panels effortlessly deploy. With vertical masking, image width is reduced while image height remains constant. Many projectors will send a 12V trigger signal for change of image formatting. This screen system features automatic control and will correctly change as prompted.
- Opt for horizontal masking for continuous variability
The WallMask HM provides multiple aspect ratios, all perfectly matted in the pixel for pixel technique favored in most post-production digital intermediate suites. The system usually starts with a native area equal to the pixel map of the projector, typically 1.78:1 or 1.85:1. Each aspect ratio with a wider format is presented in a constant width variant while the height area remains continuously variable. The horizontal masking raises and lowers image height, all the way to the widest formats. The CVM digital closed loop system is the control package that supports all possible ratios and will work flawlessly to give you a picture perfect image.
- Select both vertical and horizontal masking
The WallMask system offers continuously variable horizontal masking panels in conjunction with a single position, vertical, side masking pair. Typical application would be an HD native (1.78:1) image area with the horizontal panels taking the image area into 1.85 and various wider Scope aspect ratios. The vertical side masks take the native image to a 4:3 aspect ratio, or the single deployment pair could take an HD image down to 16:10 for computer applications. WallMask is a perfect partner with the CVM control system.
- Choose any Stewart front projection 16K+ fabric
With over 25 different optically immaculate screen fabrics, we make sure you get the right material for your viewing environment. For true, acoustic transparency, add MicroPerf X² THX Ultra to your screen selection.
- Advanced, comprehensive control systems
Each WallMask screen system is operated seamlessly via a selection of low voltage controllers ranging from simple 12V triggers to the mighty CVM, a multichannel, encoder equipped, closed-loop control system. The CVM (Continuous Variable Masking) will interface with all of today’s automation platforms, making operation of your system as easy as pushing a few buttons.
