Re-designed CineCurve allows for larger image area and fits in rooms previously too narrow for a curved screen
Stewart Filmscreen Corporation, the industry leader in precision projection screen technologies for the residential and commercial markets, today announced the newly designed Slimline CineCurve that has a narrower housing or frame bezel.
The CineCurve has been one of the most exciting screens to hit market in years and is one of Stewart Filmscreen’s top sellers. However, due to its housing size, there were instances where one had to sacrifice image size or could not fit the unit into the room. Stewart Filmscreen has addressed this concern with the Slimline CineCurve.
The Slimline CineCurve is now applicable for smaller home theater rooms due to its newly re-designed housing that is 2″ narrower on each side. Previously when measuring the installation of a CineCurve one would have to take in to account 18″ for the housing plus the image width. The new Slimline CineCurve unit reduces the unit width to 12″+ image width. The size reduction of the housing unit means that customers can have an even larger image area in the space and that rooms that may not have been able to accommodate current model are now able to thanks to its new Slimline CineCurve design.
Engineered for use with a specially designed anamorphic lens that fits most of today’s top HD projectors, CineCurve models feature a native 2.40:1 image area. This allows full enjoyment and flexibility for viewing movies in their original theatrical aspect ratio since most Hollywood blockbusters are produced in formats, such as Cinemascope, where the movie is 2.35 times wider than it is high. When watching this aspect ratio on a 16:9 screen, 33% of the pixels are used to create annoying black bars, therefore reducing your image resolution.
The CineCurve maintains a constant vertical height with two electronically controlled masking panels that glide in from the left and right, creating the perfect image area for any aspect ratio. The curvature of the screen heightens the viewer’s sense of immersion, while reducing screen surface exposure to sidewall reflections of ambient light.
