TV manufacturers have just recently started pushing the benefits of having a curved TV. Throwing that little curve into your setup promises to wrap you up in the image and deliver a more immersive experience, with wider viewing angles. However, what do you do when you want to go really big with that picture?
Don’t give up on the curve. Stewart Filmscreen is loaded with home theater ideas that will satisfy your need for a curved screen. They do sell CineCurve home theater screens, but now, they are adding the new Total Close masking system into that giant mix.
That new constant-height/variable-width masking system allows you to protect your home theater investment. When viewing is complete, it quietly closes up and clasps tightly, to protect this home theater screen from dust, debris, light, and other potential damage.
When in use, they are even more impressive. These native 2.40:1 home theater screens have a slightly curved frame, which boasts that immersive experience. It also promises to eliminate the pin-cushioning effect from anamorphic projector lenses and direct light back at the viewer, so the image won’t be washed out by ambient light reflecting onto the surfaces behind the screen.
Other features include the VeLux black appliqué finish and configuration options up to 124 inches wide. (Of course, even larger curved screen sizes are available without the Total Close option.)
“Those who make the investment in a Stewart Filmscreen Total Close CineCurve screen system will be treated to optimal image quality and an ideal viewing experience, that also delivers both an aesthetically pleasing and protective option,” said Grant Stewart, president and CEO of Stewart Filmscreen.
Stewart Filmscreen has yet to announce pricing for the Total Close CineCurve home theater screens. Contact your local dealer/installer for more information.
