New Screens from Stewart
Stewart Filmscreen announced its new StarGlas rigid rear projection screen with the screen element sandwiched between two layers of safety glass. It's available in both 0.6 and 1.0 gain versions and is said to be durable, easily cleaned, and, according to Stewart's Joachin Rivera (shown here with the screen), ideal for indoor, outdoor, or even exterior wall use (rear projection from inside, viewing from outside).
Stewart also announced a new version of its Firehawk screen material, Firehawk 3, which uses finer particles to create a smoother screen texture than before for greater image detail. The new smoother technique will also soon find its way to other Stewart screen materials such as Grayhawk and Studiotek.
