Be sure to get the serial number off the back of the frame and supply to dealer as Stewart has multiple types of mounting brackets. This way it can be looked up in our achieves to make sure you get the proper ones to fit the frame.

Don,

I am looking for a stealth trap door system - a couple of questions for you. Can I use Harmony on this screen? Can I have a black back cloth to stop reflected light? Do you have a minimum recommended viewing distance for Harmony?

Kind regards

JK

Thanks for all who came by our booth at CEDIA. It was nice meeting many forum members face to face.
We are also pleased that our new Balon Borderless Frame with Phantom HALR screen won a CE PRO "Best Of Show Award".

I have a Sony VW5000 and am looking to upgrade my screen. Can someone tell me what the difference in Snomatte 100 vs StudioTek 100? I have seen both recommended in other threads and wondered which might be better. I have a Ultramatte 150 and it is too bright with the 5000. Thanks.

Sony VW5000 | Stewart 156" Ultramat 150
Datasat RS20i | 3 x MC601 | 1 x MC205 | Oppo 105 | Lumagen Radiance Pro

I came back from CEDIA with a nasty cold and have not been in the office all week. I just read for the first time here on AVS that the "The Gemini" Night and Day Twin Screen system won an AVS Forum Best of CEDIA Award.

It is exactly the same product. For commercial installations, such as professional post production and studio review rooms, it has traditionally been called Snomatte 100.
For Home Cinema applications it is named StudioTek 100. Sorry for the confusion. We can blame the marketing boys for that.

EDIT: Just curious. How does the Ultramatte 150 look when the PJ is in HDR mode? Is it still too bright? Please advise.

I was trying to determine which of the images highlighted the differences the best and I ended up with these two. Honestly I think the Eiffel Tower might be better than the guitar. Some of the street lights are green on the Phantom whereas they are totally washed out on the 100.

It should be noted that the Stewart booth wasn't an enclosed booth. There was a high level of ambient light in the booth even without the spot lights.


Thanks for asking about the hurricane. I am still in Dallas, but my cars and residence is ok.

Screen Material/Perf Recommendations

Hi all,

Currently in the throws of a remodel where my DIY home theater is being gutted and renovated by a local A/V Professional. For years we have loved the quality on our DIY painted concoction which was provided on AVS. Thank you! I believe it was SilverFire 2.5 directly on a sheetrock wall.

But I've always dreamed of replacing my DIY with a Stewart, and that day has finally come! With so many material options and I'm concerned about viewing angles, what to do? It appears ambient light rejection and half gain angle are direct tradeoffs. I also would like audio perforations which appear to have light loss from 8-10%. I assume that will affect how gray I can go?

Not sure if it's splitting hairs when comparing screen materials, below is some of the relevant info.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Projector: Epson 5020ub (2400 Lumens)
Screen Size: 120"
Throw Distance: 18 ft
Viewing distance: 18 - 25 ft.
Location: Basement
Ambient light: 6 small basement windows with room darkening shades, open stairwell (no doors) off to side, bar lighting on side
Seating: Theater seating is direct, but bar seating and restaurant booth type seating on either side. (roughly 50 degree off center).
Screen budget: $4k
Home Theatre Component Budget: $20k

I would absolutely contact Don (Stewart) directly and he will give you the best recs based on your projector, lighting, AT or not-AT, etc, etc, etc. I have 2 Stewart screens and absolutely love them. I spent a considerable amount of time working through the options on my current screen with Don and his rec was perfect for my situation and has produced the best picture possible for my situation.

Cheers,
Ray

Craig, quick question.

RS620, 110-inch ST130 at 16:9, sitting from 11 feet, calibrated by Chad B

I'm planning to go to a 2.35 screen in a few months with the same 54" height and use the zoom for movies. Will that ruin the calibration Chad B did for me with the lower fL?

I'd email Chad and ask his recommendation on this. Maybe you just need to open the iris a bit.

JK. If you contact me off-line I'll be happy to help with your details. Meanwhile, re black backing, if you mane projector light going through the screen, are you going to microperf the fabric? You should not need a backing with one of these screens for that purpose. If you mean to prevent outside light from coming through, you need to work with a dealer to help you there.

You can configure this screen so you can control it with a harmony. The IR codes should already be in their database and if they are not we can get them added.

I am curious to know if there would be any difference in Image quality when a HALR screen is used in a dedicated HT with 100% light control as compared to a Snomatte or ST100.

There is definitely a difference in picture quality. Any time you use an ambient light rejecting screen or a screen with gain you are altering the light and some artifacts will exist. If there wasn't they wouldn't even make a Studiotek 100 and just have a one size fits all type of screen. How detrimental or noticeable these artifacts can be is a different question. The other trade off with these type of screens is viewing angle, which might not be an issue depending on seating locations. A Studiotek 100 will give everyone the best presentation. If you have the environment (no lights, dark walls, floor and ceiling) to use a Studiotek 100 then it is a no brainer. if you don't have that ideal environment then or want to have some lights on when you watch then get a screen that best matches your conditions.

What is the best masking option for my 16:9 ST130 screen to create a 2:35 masked image?


Not sure where to start. Thanks.

Unless Don has new manual masking panels I'm not aware of, you could make some - The Blacker the Theater, The Better the Image

I currently have a 10 yr old motorized Stewart Studiotek 130 microperf. It is a 120” wide 16:9 screen. We sit about 10 feet away. It has been bulletproof and has served me very well. I’m going to a JVC RS4500 and I’m interested in a scope screen for movies. It also serves as our primary TV. Therefore, it also needs to work for 16:9 and 2.35. We can go up to 144” wide.

This is a long-winded way of asking what material should I be looking at, what aspect ratio and what gain, to accommodate the increased light needs for HDR and 4K 3D?
Also, since I need a microperf, are people using a black backing to cut light loss through the holes?

Thanks,
David

Why not stick with the StudioTek 130 material ? But maybe not 144" wide. If you are keeping your seating at 10', I'd size it to match that. Maybe 138" diagonal ?
