Stewart Filmscreen has announced the re-engineering of its Luxus Classic Model A retractable screen. Launched at InfoComm this past week, the new Luxus features a customizable housing, a quieter motor, and easier serviceability. The screen comes in widths of up to 13 feet 3 inches and in a variety of materials for both professional or residential environments.
“Luxus has been an industry favorite since first introduced in 1987— but we don’t rest on our laurels. This reimagined version is just part of our commitment to provide customers with solutions that perfectly address their projection needs with the latest video technology evolution and design trends,” said Mary Stewart, CEO and owner of Stewart Filmscreen. “The features and benefits of the Luxus now match the incredible design experience offered on our brand-new website. Our customers can truly be ready for a frictionless experience, all while being backed by the uncompromising quality and craftsmanship that they’ve come to expect from Stewart.”
The company says the new screen has a “sleeker” design and both the motor and roller tube can be changed in the field by service technicians, rather than requiring remittance to the factory for repair. The roller tube minimizes horizontal lines and end caps can be ordered in polished aluminum, black or white finishes to match the case housing. Wall and ceiling mounting hardware has been simplified, and tab-tensioning technology is included to keep the screen smooth after repeated usage.
There are 25 16K+ reference screen fabrics for “unmatched” optical quality, which should improve color accuracy and resolution. Acoustically transparent options are available for speakers located behind the screen. Control options comprise 12-volt trigger, low-voltage control, IR, or ‘My Link’ RF and voice-based remote control. Otherwise, the system can be operated using a straight 120-volt wall switch.
