The Cima line comes in 2.35 up to 153" diagonal. I've installed the Cima line and have never had any problems. Except for the Studiotek 100 material the Neve is my favorite material of all manufacturers and really a tremendous value for the performance it gives. Both the Cima screen materials are a great value. Of course you want to get the best screen material for your environment. For white screens I like Neve better than the Studiotek 130, of course if you need the added brightness of the 130 that is a understandable and it is still excellent. I think Craig has a Cima Neve electric in 2.35.

Actually, I have a 123" 1.78:1 Cima Neve and a 128"diagonal 2.35:1 StudioTek 130. I do comparisons weekly ( if not daily ).







Two screens might be crazy, but it's a fine madness !

My ST130 looks exactly the same as it did when it was installed 11 years ago.

This may be a question for Don Stewart because I can't seem to find too many details anywhere.

I have one of the original Cima Tiburon screens (0.95 gain) and I love it. There is a new Cima Tiburon G2 with a 0.80 gain. I'm not sure what specifically changed, but from photos the new G2 looks to have a darker gray screen. Not sure if the screen reflective coating changed at all.

The original Cima Tiburon has a very mild gain coating. Not anywhere near as sparkly as the StudioTek 130 or FireHawk I reviewed with them.

Wanted to thank everyone for input on this thread. Just received and installed a new 100" 16:9 ST100 luxus screenwall screen to replace my 92" Elite Cinewhite screen. Very happy with the image in both SDR and HDR with custom curves. ChadB coming to celebrate my JVC RS620 in June 2019. Appreciate the input and support during this decision.

Really pleased with my 330 cm wide studiotek 130 screen.
Screen was easy to assemble, but stressful snapping on as it felt vulnerable!
Just remember to allow extra height clearance to lift screen up onto the wall bars.
In a black painted room the contrast is excellent and my epson 9100 projector never looked better. Watching 3d hardly seems dimmer and is also outstanding.
Plan to put black velvet all round the room for an extra tweak.
Family all happy.

Very glad I went from 92” to 100” for my 9.5 foot viewing distance. Really makes a difference!

How and what do you clean your screen with? I make sure we all never even touch the thing, but due to me velveting the walls among other projects going on in the room it appears to have some dust/material on it. I have a Stewart ST130.

The Stewart manual suggests a “drafting” brush - which it says I can get at an office supply store.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

I use this on my ST130. I think it was suggested here a few pages ago and works great.

Cheers,

Been thinking about finally grabbing up one of the Stewart screens. Are there any recommended dealers on the forums that sell the screens? Thanks!

FYI Don you were right about the gain of the Elite Cinewhite being less than the 1.1 they publish. I have had to turn down my lamp to low with my ST100 screen on HDR video as my custom curves were way too bright with the new screen. I am getting 45fL on the screen with lamp on high and iris all the way open which allows for more than enough brightness for great HDR! My "Netflix Dark HDR curve" (e.g. Ozark, Haunting of Hill House) now pops - my wife noticed yesterday evening watching Sabrina. A cell phone snip from Blue Planet 2:

I love it when I hear even the wife notices a big difference.

Thanks you for your purchase.

Hey Don, would you happen to know what changed between the original Cima Tiburon screens (0.95 gain) and the new Cima Tiburon G2 with a 0.80 gain? Seems like a slightly darker screen from the photos but have not seen both side to side. I have the original Cima Tiburon.

Hi Scott,


Yes, Tiburon G2 is a darker neutral gray than the G1. When the original product was introduced, it was a very light gray at .95 gain. Later, it was felt by our dealers that the original Tiburon gain was too close to the white Cima Neve so its gray shade was darkened and gain was lowered to .8

Don

I found a used Stewart Luxus G3 fixed projector screen and was wondering if this is a step up from my Carada CCW screen. My projector is a JVC X590R set up in a family room with dark ceiling and walls.

Nice setup. How do you go from 16:9 to the 2.35:1 aspect ratio? The latter being much bigger? Your projector auto adjust?

Short answer, YES!
But don't take my word for it, @enricoclaudio a couple of pages before this swapped his Carada for a ST100 and loves it.

So I read some reviews and they say that the Stewart Luxus G3 screen material has sparkling. People who have this material does it sparkle on bright scenes?

Can’t decide between the ST100 or ST130, looking for recommendations.

Projector will be the new JVC NX7 in a light controlled room (no windows, dark walls and ceiling) mounted around 16.5 feet from the screen (can go back further if required as room is 16.5 ft wide by 22 ft deep by 9ft). Looking at going 2.35 and a 140” diagonal. Main seating position is about 13 ft from the screen.

My concern with the ST100 is that it will not be bright enough (especially for HDR) so I think I should go ST130 but I would prefer ST100 if I can get enough brightness.

Any thoughts / input would be much appreciated.

I had similar questions about my setup. I was worried abought brightness for HDR. After getting mixed opinions from dealers and posters on the forums, I called Stewart using the toll free number and went with their recommendation. They knew my projector's rated output and helped me choose the right material for my setup. I am extremely happy with the result.

I don't see sparkle myself, even at 47 foot lamberts watching HDR. However, get samples and check it out yourself. Send me a PM - I have some extra samples, if you want.

I love the extra brightness and " punch " the StudioTek 130 gives for HDR. But, same thing - get samples. PM me - I have several samples laying around - Cima Neve too. Be glad to send them.
