Hi

I have a couple of questions for owners or others who have physically seen the Stewart curved screens.


I have seen pictures of Stewart curved screens which look like the snapper kind (domed).Am I seeing things or are the only available curved screens from Stewart Lace and Grommet?


Are the Lace And Grommet screens perfectly taught,especially where the screen meets the velux border?

The lace and grommet system is ultimately better than snaps because the screen tautness can be adjusted for age and or extreme temps that the screen may be in (not likely to happen in the home but it does in the staging market) Even after the screen ages the lace can be adjusted to get rid of sags.

It comes down to the size of the screen. Where I work we have a 158" Cine V micro perf screen with electronic masking.


It employs studs to snap the screen fabric to the frame. I believe the smaller screens use the snap on fixing where as the larger screens use the lace and grommet system.

No, it does not have anything to do with the size! It's the model of screen. The Cine-V and Cinecurve use snaps. The Cine-W uses lace/grommet. It's all clearly documented in the specifications.

Good thread. I'm inquiring at the moment for a 2:37:1 curved screen. Do Stewarts custom make the screens?

What type of lenses work well with the curved screen? What are the Pros and Cons of a curve screen?

The main advantage of A curved screen however small is, Quote:


Anamorphic lenses are known to distort the projected image by making the center of the projected image more narrow than the edges. The shape of A Curved projector screen reverses this effect by bringing the ends of the screen closer to the audience and pushing the center of the screen away from the audience thus giving you a non distorted projected image.
