Hey Chris! Any more thought about a retrofit motorized masking system for those of us with your older motorized scope screens? Also, is there any way for the Harmony Hub to control the RF on the screen motor? Any kind of converter?

I see the pricing for the Proscenium motorized masking frame is up but is the product info? The only thing I see on the masking page are the manual fixed panels and the retractable masking screens. I am under the impression the Proscenium is for a fixed frame. Is that correct or is it a retractable? If it for fixed screen, when will the product info be online or is there something you can send me regarding the product. I am very close to being ready to order a screen and had previously planned on fixed panels but I may want to go with motorized if the Proscenium will work.

It's on the list, just lower in priority than what we've been working on. Next is a retractable non-AT screen design and commercial-sized masking system.

I don't know of any third-party vendors that can control RF systems. I know some vehicles can learn your garage RF remote, but they're designed to specifically learn those addresses, etc. All universals I know of simply use RF as a carrier within their ecosystem.

Cheers,
Chris

It's on the to-do list for sure. This weekend I got up information on the SSE page here: http://www.seymourscreenexcellence.com/trim.asp The only difference is the availability of screen materials (the S-AV version will be the grommet/o-ring style materials only), online availability, and the S-AV version will include a basic RF remote control and wall switch. You can still get however high-end controls you like, so if you really want thousands of intermediate stops available while you're being driven home you could get that.

Cheers,
Chris

Howdy all, considering a Seymour Screen to save some money over a Stewart and have heard good things, however I can't find much info on the Glacier White material vs. the Stewart StudioTek 130 G3. I want/need a 1.3 gain screen to take advantage of HDR, with minimal sparkling/artifacts with a fine/smooth enough surface to resolve 4K. Searching this long there there's only one mention of the Glacier White and it doesn't give much info. I do NOT need an AT screen.

Looking at 128" Diagonal Metro frame 16:9 by the way.

Appreciate any insight on whether this would be a good choice over the Stewart!

Thanks!
