Stewart Filmscreen has announced that it will use next week’s CEDIA Expo to unveil its Phantom high ambient light rejecting (HALR) projection screen material.
A flexible front projection material ideally suited for fixed-frame wall screen or electric roller screen applications, Phantom HALR ensures an “exceptional entertainment experience, day or night”.
Stewart claims four unique features that put this new screen in a class of its own. Phantom is available is seamless sizes up to 40’ by 90’; it is designed for use with most of Stewart’s fixed frame or ElectriScreen models; it is available in Cinemaperf or Microperf X2 THX Ultra configurations for acoustic transparency; and it is future-proof, thanks to Stewart’s proprietary 16K+ resolution capabilities.
Phantom HALR is UHD- and HDR-ready and will calibrate out to Rec. 2020 or Rec. 709 standards without obvious colour aberrations or shift that skew the primary and secondary colours.
Phantom HALR reportedly delivers over 30:1 contrast for a 2,000lm light output projector in a room with 20’-candles of ambient light and several sources of light hitting the screen surface at 40º angles.
“Phantom fills a distinct gap in the marketplace, offering integrators and technology professionals the best of all worlds; a large, high ambient light rejecting screen that can be configured as either a fixed frame or roller screen model up to 40’ x 90’ in size, that can also be perforated for acoustic transparency, and suitable for the most demanding audiences and environments,” says Stewart Filmscreen president and CEO Shannon Townley.
