I've spoken with Alan who loves his. I tried the Stewart web site but couldn't find info. Can you tell us the thoughts behind this, and how much of the torus advantages we get for a HT setup?

Alan has a silver screen (2.5-3.0 gain?) with no hot spots at all. He says its very lightweight, and will not exhibit the "saddle" deformity in the center that is a problem with stretching material over a curved frame. He wondered whether a 2.0 screen material would be better suited to home use...or do you want to take advantage of as much gain as you can.

I have a 9500LC on the way, and have thought of making my own screen, but Alan's sounded well thought out...and way less hassle than trying it myself.

I'd tentatively like 1 9'x5' size.

...need any beta testers?




Finally went digital: RS20, ISCO IIIs, DIY 10.5' wide torus screen, Stewart StudioTek 1.3 G3 with 4 way masking and adjustable image size
