Stewart Slims Down CineCurve Screen

Stewart Filmscreen Corp. released a slimmer version of its CineCurve projection screen. Designed for smaller home theaters and installations, the Slimline CineCurve has a narrower housing or frame bezel than the original CineCurve.

At CEDIA last week, Stewart Filmscreen Corp. released a slimmer version of its CineCurve projection screen. Designed for smaller home theaters and installations, the Slimline CineCurve has a narrower housing or frame bezel than the original CineCurve. (Stewart's Visionary Grande was among the new products announcement at InfoComm 09.)

The new screen has a redesigned housing that is 2 inches narrower on each side, reducing the unit width to 12 inches image width from 18 inches. According to the company, the size reduction of the housing unit means that customers can have a larger image area in the space and that rooms that may not have been able to accommodate the original model can benefit from the Slimline version.

The CineCurve screens are engineered for use with a specially designed anamorphic lens that fits most HD projectors, and feature a native 2.40:1 image area for viewing movies in their original theatrical aspect ratio. The screens maintain a constant vertical height with two electronically controlled masking panels that glide in from the left and right, says the company. The curvature of the screen is meant to heighten the viewer's sense of immersion while reducing screen surface exposure to sidewall reflections of ambient light.
