Brief Overview of Severtson Screens

Severtson Corporation was created in 1986 in response to the US Air Force’s need to find both a quality optical coating and a uniform application process for the screens of their domed simulators. In the early 1990’s a contract with IMAX Corporation brought Severtson Corporation into the cinema screen industry. To meet the challenge of the larger screens, a robotic application system was designed that could be used to coat screens on site. In 2003 Severtson Corporation launched its own line of Home Theater/Pro AV screens with a basic fixed-frame screen and later expanded the line to include a screen for every need.

Severtson Corporation is a member of the Giant Screen Cinema Association. Severtson has manufactured cinema screens for theaters in countries all over the world, including the United States, Mexico, Canada, Korea, Japan, Brazil, Indonesia, Singapore, Spain, Germany, France, New Zealand, Australia, Netherlands, Thailand, Scotland, China, Russia, and many more. To meet the challenge of creating extremely large screens, Severtson Corporation designed a robotic spray-arm application system to paint its high-performance optical coating in-house on screens as large as 67.75ft.x 150ft. (20.7m x 45.8m). It is currently the largest in-house cinema screen optical coating system in the world. Severtson Screens certifications and partners include Technicolor, MasterImage, Dolby, Volfoni, LightspeeD & DepthQ, and RealD (

Approaching its 30th anniversary in 2016, Severtson Corporation continues to be a global leader in innovation and quality. The Severtson family’s extensive experience in manufacturing small home theater screens and large cinema screens has given Severtson Corporation the expertise to meet the needs of the professional and consumer AV markets for both indoor applications as well as large outdoor venues. With its three Arizona-based production facilities and its state-of-the-art robotic application system, Severtson has massive production capabilities and an unusually wide array of screens. The screens range in size from massive movie theaters, comfortable home theaters, and everything in between.
