Stewart Filmscreen new website aims to streamline experience
TORRANCE, Calif. — Stewart Filmscreen®, the only two-time Academy Award®-winning manufacturer of professional projection screens and reference-standard projection screen materials for the audiovisual industry, is continuing its 70-year legacy with a completely reimagined web experience at stewartfilmscreen.com. Now customers can dig deeper than ever before into Stewart Filmscreen’s expansive offerings with a host of new options, tools, and content. At the heart of the experience are the Screen Finder capability that allows users to quickly find the perfect screen for any project and the Configurator Price Quote (CPQ) tool with built-in drawing and quote capabilities that speed up the design process for integrators.
“No matter if a customer is ordering a screen from our value-added preconfigured Cima series or a custom-made screen from one of our 35 other product families, each and every screen is meticulously handcrafted by one of our professional artisans. There’s no one else that delivers the seamless quality or the level of customization that we do,” said Mary Stewart, CEO and owner of Stewart Filmscreen. “This website relaunch reflects our relentless attention to detail by delivering the best customer experience at every step of the process. Everything needed to make a screen decision will now be offered right on our website, truly making it as easy as possible to do business with us.”
Designed to be intuitive and easy to navigate, the new site is packed with quick-access menus, original content, and stunning visuals. Visitors can quickly sort through all 35 of Stewart Filmscreen’s options by filtering by screen type, image width, mounting method, masking options, or special features. Once a product is selected, visitors can learn more about each product and its ideal applications, see it in a gallery of real-life installations, and access a printable brochure. The brochure includes technical information, fabric options, and — for the first time — the base MSRP specific to that product. In addition to individual product pages, the site offers a screen material comparison tool of its 30 different screen materials.
Anchoring stewartfilmscreen.com is the new Screen Finder function. Screen Finder is designed to help visitors find the perfect screen. Fully enhanced, the dynamic tool walks users through a series of questions based on a few key project details to determine which product or products would be most appropriate for the specific venue.
Another key highlight is found in the Dealer Login, which now boasts the CPQ. Currently in beta, the CPQ replaces the former Web Screen Assistant. It allows dealers to personally configure a 2D scalable drawing of any screen, create and export CAD drawings, and get a personalized quote that can be used as a sign-off for an immediate build. By leveraging the CPQ, the configuration process is completely streamlined, thus expediting the ordering process significantly.
Finally, Stewart Filmscreen has also updated many of the names of its customers’ favorite screens. These products have been rebranded with easier-to-understand names that make it even faster to locate them on the website.
“Not all screens are created equal, and no two environments are the same. That is why we offer so many options, why our process is application-driven, and why every product is custom-made,” added Stewart. “Our screens are produced at the very highest level and offer superb build quality and unrivaled performance. Now, our website truly reflects the same high quality as our screens. All these tools now make it possible to quickly see and select the perfect screen solution for any application while also delivering the highest attention to image uniformity, color accuracy, and resolution preservation of even the most advanced projectors on the market.”
