Don,

I'm planning a setup in a multi-use room that has light walls, and plan to use a 138" 2.35 screen with a throw distance of 18 feet or so. I have seen you recommend the Graymatte 70 for this type of setup. Given the .7 gain, can you provide a rough estimate of how bright the projector needs to be to have an adequately bright picture?
Thanks

So I was doing some reading on Acoustically Transparent Stewart FilmScreens. I have not purchased mine yet but I plan on getting a StudioTek 130 G3. I have a few questions on Stewarts AT material.

  • How are the AT Stewart Screens regarded in both audio and video quality? I know the non-AT are highly regarded for visual performance..
  • Would I need to put the speakers at-least 12" back from the screen?
  • I assume the subs can not go behind the screen?
Any help in this area would be greatly appreciated. thxs...

Guys

I am being asked about the Stewart Grayhawk fabric for DLP; what is the current buzz on customers liking or not liking Grayhawk? I am 99% CRT action, so please advise.

Grayhawk is a good material. You should get a sample - any dealer can send you one !

Say Craig

I am a dealer, I just haven't been involved with lamp-driven projectors. Search "Blendzilla" in the CRT section to see what I mean.

Doh - didn't realize that. I'm not ever in the CRT section - not my forte so to speak !

If I were you I'd give Stewart a call direct and ask your questions. They have sales engineers available to help with a selection and answer questions. The Stewart Gray screens, especially the FireHawk and GrayHawk have evolved over time. They were engineered to help with poor contrast and some ambient light situations. I saw in your other thread that you're dealing with some ambient light issues. Stewart has a new "Black" screen called the "Phantom HALR high ambient light rejecting screen" that might address some of your customers problems. Here's a link: http://www.stewartfilmscreen.com/phantom

I've owned a FireHawk and now own a StudioTeK 130 and the were/are excellent screens.

I would give them a call with the particulars of the room, screen size, and the projector you're thinking about using and see what they have to say. Here's the telephone number: Stewart Sales Engineer, (800) 762-4999.
