- New material builds on industry reference Silver 3D material but is optimized for both 2D and 3D applications - Available in seamless sizes up to 40' x 90'

By Gary Reber

Stewart Filmscreen Corporation®, industry leader in precision projection screen technologies for the residential and commercial markets, announces Silver 5D (3D + 2D high definition video), an innovative fabric that offers industry leading passive 3D polarization while maintaining outstanding performance for 2D sources. It preserves most of the performance of Stewart's leading Silver 3D fabric while improving uniformity, reducing hot spotting and offers a significantly wider viewing cone. Available in seamless sizes up to 40’ x 90’, this new hybrid 5D fabric is available in fixed frame, retractable and variable masking models and can be MicroPerforated for acoustical transparency.
Stewart has applied a huge R&D effort in developing an improved polarization preserving screen technology with reduced artifacts that allows a single screen material to function more adequately with non-polarized 2D projected source material. Stewart is now bringing the fruits of the effort to market in the Silver 5D. To truly give technicians and integrators unlimited options for 3D installation, the Silver 5D can be MicroPerfed to create acoustically transparent screen material so speakers can be hidden behind the single screen without negative effects on sound quality.

The Silver 5D material has been designed to be compatible with Stewart's CineCurve, Director’s Choice masking systems and all premium Stewart fixed mounting systems including the beautiful fixed-frame Gallery Series and the elegant Swarovski Crystal-covered Couture Collection. This screen material also has added flexibility of being rolled and retracted, unlike many options in the past that are restricted to fixed-frames.  This single screen setup saves space, and with flexible framing options, can easily integrate into any business or home theater environment. Silver 5D essentially provides incredible flexibility with limitless application options.
The product will be on display at InfoComm 2011, June 15-17, Booth #2032.
