Torrance, CA and Indianapolis, IN (CEDIA) - Oct 7, 2011 - Stewart Filmscreen Corporation®, industry leader in precision projection screen technologies for the residential and commercial markets, was honored for its product industrial design acumen during CEDIA EXPO 2011 September 7 in Indianapolis, when its Silver 5D™ was presented with a Best Projection Screen Resi Award from Residential Systems magazine.

For this year's awards, Residential Systems recognized the Silver 5D as the most technologically advanced projection screen in the category, placing it among an exclusive list of brands whose products truly outshine the industry. Each Resi Award is given in recognition of the products' design aesthetics, user-friendliness, and originality, making the Resi a difficult honor to achieve.

"This year was further evidence that challenging economic times have not limited the creativity and artistry of the top manufacturers exhibiting at CEDIA EXPO," Residential Systems magazine editorial director Jeremy Glowacki said. "Stewart should be particularly proud of its Silver 5D, because the Resi Award is a very exclusive honor that is targeted specifically at industrial design, which requires careful attention to detail, significant financial commitment and a break though in solving a need not previously addressed in the industry. Congratulations to Stewart for its standout design."

The Silver 5D™ (3D + 2D high definition video) material is an innovative front projection screen material that offers industry leading passive 3D polarization while maintaining outstanding performance for 2D sources. Perfect for dedicated home cinemas as well as multimedia rooms, the Silver 5D material delivers beautiful picture quality for traditional media while also offering 3D capabilities, creating a screen that is both versatile and future proof as more media moves to 3D.

Silver 5D preserves the performance of Stewart's leading Silver 3D material while improving center to edge uniformity, reducing hot spotting, and furnishing a significantly wider viewing cone. Available now in seamless sizes up to 40' x 90', this new hybrid 5D material is available in fixed frame, retractable and variable masking models and can be MicroPerfed for acoustic transparency.

"Stewart is proud to accept this Resi Award as we feel that the Silver 5D material continues our company's rich history of customer-focused innovation and adaptation to current market needs," stated Grant Stewart, CEO/President of Stewart Filmscreen Corporation. "The Silver 5D material exemplifies performance excellence based on the current shift to 3D content and we are confident this screen will satisfy consumers by bringing immersive 2D and 3D home theater to any room in the house."
