Stewart Filmscreen’s New Projection Screen Solutions Amass Awards at InfoComm 2017

Ambient light crushing Phantom™ HALR™ and easy-to-install large-venue Torrent™ ElectriScreen earn prestigious commercial audio-visual industry awards

TORRANCE, CA – June 2017 – Stewart Filmscreen®, the only two-time Academy Award®-winning manufacturer of projection screens and projection screen materials for the audio-visual industry, continues to bolster its legacy by winning three prestigious industry awards at InfoComm 2017. The new and highly differentiated PhantomHALR (High Ambient Light Rejection) screen material earned accolades from Commercial Integrator and Sound & Video Contractor (S&VC), while the Torrent ElectriScreen took home an award from Systems Contractor News (SCN).

BEST Projection Screen and Best of Show

Each year at InfoComm, Commercial Integrator selects top new products in a variety of categories as the recipients of the BEST (Best Electronics Systems Technologies) Awards. Judged by an unbiased panel of 12 industry experts along with the editors of Commercial Integrator magazine, these products are lauded for their innovation, functionality, competitive advantages and benefits to the installer. Designed to deliver upon these virtues,  Stewart Filmscreen’s Phantom HALR was recognized as a Commercial Integrator BEST Award winner in the video projection screen category.

Sound & Video Contractor editors and trade professionals also scour the InfoComm show floor every year to determine the most innovative, cutting-edge products being introduced. Understanding its differentiated performance and witnessing its image fidelity first hand, judges honored Phantom HALR with an InfoComm Best of Show award.

Installation Product of the Year
Last but certainly not least, Stewart Filmscreen’s new Torrent ElectriScreen won an SCN Installation Product Award during InfoComm17. A showcase of the most innovative commercial AV products to hit the market since last year’s event, finalists were chosen by an independent panel of judges and voted on by SCN readers and followers, to select the most innovative product in each category. The new large-venue Torrent is an elegant recessed roller screen available in image sizes up to 17-feet wide. Easy to install, service, and maintain, Torrent features a self-finishing ceiling flange and a concealed control system located inside the case for clean lines and easy access.

“Phantom HALR’s lineage virtually speaks for itself, but when integrators and consultants saw Phantom in action under intense lighting on the InfoComm show floor, they quickly ascertained how well it would do in any high-ambient light environment— from classrooms and corporate boardrooms to venues and other challenging applications,” says Stewart Filmscreen CEO Shannon Townley. “Likewise, Torrent solves a real problem in the field where soffit space is limited, and offers integrators and consultants an opportunity to do more in the two-piece projection category. We are proud to be recognized again for the technical advancements that Phantom HALR and the Torrent ElectriScreen represent. Consider your most challenging installations and the options Stewart Filmscreen provides, then simply Imagine It. Done.”
