About Seymour-Screen Excellence
Founded in 2010 as a joint venture by US-based Seymour AV (Chris Seymour) and UK-based Screen Excellence (Patrice Congard), Seymour-Screen Excellence combines the leadership and innovation of their acoustically transparent projection screen materials for high-end custom installers in North America.  The company’s state-of-the-art screens provide flawless picture quality and acoustic transparency, superior to traditional perforated screens or other less exacting woven screen materials. Manufacturing takes place at the company’s factory / headquarters in Ames, Iowa.

Originally founded upon the latest in materials and design from Patrice Congard, recognized as the originator of the modern acoustically transparent screen, in recent years the venture has expanded its offerings with many innovative new solutions created by Chris Seymour. These include award-winning ambient light-rejecting film screen technologies, the channel’s first color temperature tunable white bias LED back lighting kits and single- and 4-way motorized masking systems.

During 2017 CEDIA Expo, Seymour-Screen Excellence, in joint-demo with Audio Excellence and Wolf Cinema, was recognized by AVS Forum as Best Home Theater Demo. Follow Seymour-Screen Excellence on Twitter @SeymourScreenEx and Facebook:
