Many Hollywood blockbusters are produced in formats such as Cinemascope where the movie is 2.35 times wider than it is high. When watching this aspect ratio on a 16:9 screen, 33% of the pixels are used to create annoying black bars, reducing your image resolution. Designed for use with an anamorphic lens, the Curved 2-Way Variable Vertical Masking System (CineCurve) features a native 2.40:1 image area allowing full enjoyment and flexibility when watching movies in super-wide screen formats. Maintaining a constant vertical height, two electronically controlled masking panels glide in from the left and right to create the perfect image area when viewing different types of media or movies filmed in various aspect ratios. The CineCurve is available with any of Stewart’s front or rear projection materials. A specialized snap-fastening system ensures a smooth and perfectly tensioned screen surface. Our VeLux™ applique finish absorbs over-scan and increases perceived contrast.
