Stewart Filmscreen win HiVi Prize

10/01/08

Stewart Filmscreen's has received a Grand Prix Award from the Japanese publication HiVi for their Studio Tech 130 G3 front projection screen. Thomas Stewart, CFO of Stewart Filmscreens, went to Japan to personally receive the award during a special awards ceremony attended by 135 of Japan's top audiovisual professionals.

The Studio Tech 130 G3 still offers the same reference standard of reflectivity and needed gain as the previous version, however, the newer G3 version offers a smoother screen surface with significantly less granularity, providing superior performance with the latest 1080p projectors.

 

HiVi praised the Studio Tech 130 G3 for its ability to take full advantage of 1080p resolutions with noticeably increased colour saturation and detail. They found the G3 formulated screen, when compared with other screens, was able to display images with a higher dynamic range for pure white and black.

 

"We are pleased with HiVi's recognition of our Studio Tech 130 G3 screen, which has also received an enthusiastic endorsement by Joe Kane Productions,” said Grant Stewart, President of Stewart Filmscreens. "With this new G3 optimization we have created what we believe will be the de facto reference screen for 1080p (and beyond) projection systems."
