Harkness Screens Launches New Higher Gain Spectraltm 300 Silver Screen

Harkness Screens, the world’s leading manufacturer of cinema screens, introduces spectralTM 300 at this year’s CinemaCon show (Booth 2415). 
 
Spectral™ 300 is a specialist ultra-high brightness silver screen, with an increased gain of 25% against Harkness’ existing Spectral™ 240 product.    
 
Spectral™ 300 gives excellent performance with “passive” 3D applications using polarised light such as RealD where achieving suitable brightness levels particularly for 3D presentation in larger auditoria has proved problematic. It also performs well under 2D conditions and can be used for 3D/4D rides, simulators and special effects. 
 
 “We developed our new higher-gain SpectralTM 300 screens to provide cinema operators with the ability to optimise digital projection and improve brightness levels, particularly under passive 3D conditions using polarised light.  It is these conditions where light loss is proven to be most significant and where consequently presentation quality can sometimes be below the standard required.  Using this new, higher gain surface can help exhibitors achieve sufficient brightness levels in their larger auditoria and we are very happy to introduce it at CinemaCon 2012,” says Andrew Robinson, Managing Director of Harkness Screens. 
 
Silver aluminium flake based coating applied to the unique base material provides high gain characteristics, strong signal to noise ratios, generous viewing angles and excellent colour temperature whilst utilising Harkness’ proprietary and unique seam welding process to ensure that these screens have no visible seams under projection conditions.
“Harkness Screens has always been committed to providing the cinema industry with cutting edge, state-of-the-art presentation surfaces and SpectralTM 300 is a testament to that fact,” adds Robinson.
