CE Pro Video Q&A: Stewart Filmscreen on Best Applications for Ambient Light-Rejecting Screens

Shannon Townley, president and CEO of Stewart Filmscreen, says the company's new Phantom High-Ambient Light-Rejecting (HALR) screen is well suited for movie-watching and particularly gaming applications in multipurpose rooms.

Stewart Filmscreen came out of CEDIA 2016 with one of its biggest product debuts in years with its new Phantom High-Ambient Light-Rejecting (HALR) screen

According to president and CEO Shannon Townley, the screen opens up a larger potential market for two-piece projection for integrators. 

"The Phantom HALR gives a consumer the ability to put a screen in a room where they may have windows or other light factors and still get a pristine, 16K film screen for watching movies," he says. 

Townley also describes how Stewart can put 50,000 microperfs per foot in the screen for acoustically transparent applications.
