Press Release  |  Sep 7, 2011

Innovative fabric offers industry leading passive 3D polarization while maintaining outstanding performance for 2D sources.

Torrance, CA and Indianapolis, IN (CEDIA) - September 7, 2011 - 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. Perfect for dedicated home cinemas as well as multimedia rooms, the Silver 5D screen material delivers beautiful picture quality for traditional media while also offering 3D capabilities, creating a screen that is both versatile and future proof as more media moves to 3D.

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 well with non-polarized 2D projected source material. Stewart is now bringing the fruits of this effort to market in the form of Silver 5D. This breakthrough technology preserves most of the performance of Stewart's leading Silver 3D fabric while improving center to edge uniformity, reducing hot spotting, and furnishing 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. To truly give home theater enthusiasts unlimited options for enjoying both 3D and 2D content, the Silver 5D can be MicroPerfed and is THX Ultra certified to create acoustically transparent screen material. Speakers can be hidden behind the single screen without negative effects on sound quality. With a variety of MicroPerf and framing options, the Silver 5D helps you personalize your cinematic experience to create a visually stunning and versatile home theater environment that offers breathtaking picture quality no matter which dimension you choose.

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 can also be rolled and retracted, unlike many options in the past that arem 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 CEDIA, September 7-11, Booth #4641.
