Learn About the Gold Standard in Home Theater Screens
Are you considering creating the home theater you’ve been thinking about now for several years? Or, maybe, you’re considering an upgrade on your current home theater system. The good news is that there is no better time than now.
The latest technology has genuinely revolutionized the possibilities in home theater design. As a result, there’s no more comparing the experience with the best cinema in San Diego, CA. Instead, today’s home theaters can surpass the audio and video performance of commercial theaters.
With the right projector and speakers, you can experience the immersive cinematic experience that takes you away from the moment and into the action. But, there’s more. One of the essential elements to consider is the projector screen. So, let’s look at how these screens affect the final image and sound.
At Andrus Smart Technologies, we partner with best-in-class brands to provide our clients with state-of-the-art audio, video, and home automation solutions. In the world of projector screens, that company is Stewart Filmscreen.
This company is the gold standard for home theater screens. They’ve been in the film business for over 70 years, providing screens for Hollywood’s post-production editing suites, Oscar stages, and screening rooms. They are also the only screen manufacturer to win two Academy Awards for technical merit.
They make over 25 different screen materials, and each screen is custom-made for specific applications. We’ll consider ambient light and reflected light levels as well as room seating and other factors to determine the best screen for your unique environment. Their matte gray and metallic surfaces provide the contrast needed in challenging lighting environments.
Acoustically Transparent Screens
Stewart’s perforated, acoustically transparent screens allow sound waves to pass from speakers through the screen to the audience. This enables our certified technicians to mount speakers behind the screen surface. This placement heightens the sense of believability, immersing the viewer in the film by localizing the sound and speech to an appropriate area of the image.
While common in commercial settings, the company developed a perforation technique designed for smaller venues like home theaters. They offer optimal image quality and sound performance thanks to Stewart’s Mickroperf X2 THX Ultra technology that creates a diamond-shaped perforation pattern and over 30,000 perforations per square foot.
Additional features include their virtual frame and tab-tensioning system that forms equal tension on all parts of the screen.
When combined with the latest 4K HDR projectors and high-fidelity surround sound system, you experience unprecedented levels of images and sound once found only at premier cinematic venues.
When integrated with your Control4 home automation system, movie night becomes a magical event. One tap on the Movie button on your elegant in-wall keypad or touchscreen, and the projector and screen descend from the ceiling, the blackout shades lower, the lights dim, the movie begins, and the sound fills the room.
At Andrus Smart Technologies, we combine our audio video expertise with cutting-edge technology to create home theaters that exceed our client’s expectations every time.
