Introduce a Silent, Retractable Projection Screen Powered by Sivoia QED™ (Quiet Electronic Drive) Technology


Coopersburg, PA (1 February 2006) - - Lutron Electronics Co. Inc., the world leader in lighting control, and Stewart Filmscreen Corp., the premiere manufacturer of precision projection screens, have joined forces to bring a powerful entrant into the projection screen market.

Stewart's notable Model A Electriscreen and the Visionary projection screen will be offered in Europe with the technology of Lutron's Sivoia QED quiet electronic drive. Sivoia QED technology has revolutionised the motorised window treatment industry with quiet, precise electronic drives that can be fully integrated into light control and building management systems.

The increased interest in multimedia integration for homes and conference rooms has broadened the market for sophisticated visual projection systems. Stewart Filmscreen has expanded the market with a wide array of projection screen solutions for home and commercial applications. Stewart can now offer a screen that moves with perfect precision and in total silence by coupling their retractable Model A Electricscreen with Lutron's Sivoia QED electronic drive. "At Stewart Filmscreen we look for every opportunity to create the best possible products. With Lutron's exceptional Sivoia QED drive, we can offer our customers a truly precise motorised Electriscreen, one that is distinguished by its silence," says Thomas Stewart of Vice President of Stewart FilmScreen.

"The marriage of the Stewart projection screen with Sivoia QED enables precise, quiet operation of the projection system -an ideal solution for system integrators who want to offer their customers the best product in the market. We are excited to be working with a company like Stewart Filmscreen," says Stacey Kim, Market Development Manager at Lutron Electronics.

Both companies are enthusiastic about the advanced integration possibilities that this product offers. Sivoia QED can fill additional roles in the projection environment, with the capability to seamlessly integrate into other systems, such as Lutron's HomeWorks® total home lighting control system.

The Stewart Electriscreen with Lutron's Sivoia QED will be displayed in Lutron's booth at the Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) show in Brussels, Belgium from 1 -3 February 2006.

The Stewart Model A Electriscreen and Visionary projection screen will be available for purchase in February 2006.
