Stewart Filmscreen Introduces Daily Dual Screen System, Enabling Seamless Switching From 2D to 3D Viewing
Single package gives the operator a choice of two screen surfaces, including Silver 3D
As facilities need to add silver screens to their work environments to take advantage of the increase in demand for 3D presentation, the Daily Dual allows existing rooms to be quickly and cost-effectively converted to dual 2D/3D screen functionality. Users can easily select the desired screen, instantly switching the configuration from one format to the other without any need for room conversion or additional setup time.
“Daily Dual is ideal for the postproduction facility expanding its work in 3D or any organization that needs access to a screen for presentations,” said Don Parenta, Director of Sales North America Commercial & Professional Products. “This highly innovative product allows facilities to install a single screen assembly that goes from one material to another at the touch of a button. For example, a post house can combine a Silver 3D screen on the T&G frame, with a StudioTek 100 matte reference screen on the roller, thus enabling the room to seamlessly accommodate both active and passive 3D as well as 2D work while providing optimal, no compromise image quality for all formats.”
The patent-pending Daily Dual allows users to select the ideal image surface for each screen’s application, with any Stewart screen material available. In use, each surface appears as a beautifully matted permanently framed installation, but only one of the surfaces is fixed. The other is an electrically operated roller screen that descends into a shadow box mask. The configuration allows operators to go back and forth from one surface to another at will, either at the touch of a button or a serial controller command, eliminating setup time and room cross booking conflicts.
The product will be on display at InfoComm in Las Vegas, Nevada, June 9 to 11, 2010.
