Stewart CIMA vs firehawk

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know how the new Stewart CIMA screens are compared to firehawk G3 for ambient light during the day & light controlled at night. Any advice would be appreciated.

Firehawk would be better for ambient light viewing but has a more narrow viewing cone.

What is a viewing cone? Thanks

Sorry, the viewing area. If seating is to be on the sides the picture it won't be as good with the Firehawk but if the seating is in front of the screen it will be better with ambient light. The CIMA screens are better if seating is to the sides but will pick up more ambient light.

The CIMA line does seem enticing...

How does the CIMA line (and particularly the tiburon material) actually compare to other similarly priced screens on the market and in particular, the firehawk (in terms of visible texture, hotspotting, uniformity, black level improvement, etc.)? I can't find any reviews from end users or pros...

I just ordered this screen today via AVS science based on their recommendation of my set-up and environment. My HT room won’t be ready for a few weeks so I won’t be able to give a hands on review for a little while.

I was under the impression Firehawk screens are recommended for completely light controlled rooms ?

I have firehawks on the floor here at my store, they tend to pick up ALOT of light with the lights on, but they still keep a "viewable picture", just lose alot of black level and such. In the dark, the firehawk shines. Don't get me wrong, i can't keep cima's in stock man, they are selling like hot cakes.
