World leading home cinema specialists, Stewart Filmscreen, are currently using the renowned CEDIA 2017 trade show to debut their brand new Gemini dual-aspect ratio projection screen. Utilising dual aspect ratios, Gemini can accommodate both HDTV (16:9) and Widescreen Cinema Scope (2:35:1) screen materials in a contemporary case according to the company.
Debuting at the ongoing CEDIA show in San Diego, the Gemini screen’s ability to accommodate those two diverse screen materials mean that it can work equally well in environments with high ambient light as well as in dedicated home cinemas. Users can automatically change the screen material and aspect ratio from 16:9 HDTV to 2.35:1 Cinemascope with the push of a button or via voice control when paired with third party options such as Amazon Echo.
When the screen is not required, too, both screens roll up into Gemini’s unobtrusive casing. That lightweight screen casing is to be offered in a choice of either black or white, and a four-corner mounting system for ceiling recessed installations will also be available. As if all of that weren’t enough, the Gemini dual roller screen is also compatible with a host of home automation systems, including those offered by Savant and Crestron.
Stewart Filmscreen, therefore, are understandably excited to debut the Gemini screen as was explained by the company’s president and CEO Shannon Townley:
‘At Stewart, we pride ourselves on listening to the market. The new Gemini dual roller screen system provides consumers with the ability to enjoy their favorite [sic] sports and movies with the best image fidelity and performance, all with one screen application.’
