Rave Cinemas Turns to Harkness Screens’ Digital Screen Checker to Maintain Cinema Brightness Levels

Rave Cinemas, one of the top five North American cinema circuits, has recently adopted the Digital Screen Checker from Harkness Screens, the world's largest manufacturer of projection screen surfaces as a method for ensuring brightness levels in auditoria. 
 
The Digital Screen Checker a new product from Harkness Screens is a low-cost hand-held digital cinema luminance meter for accurately measuring screen brightness, expressed in foot lamberts.  
 
“Brightness levels are a serious issue for cinema operators especially with more 3D content coming to market.  We’re committed to making sure that we maintain suitable brightness levels in each of our auditoria to ensure our customers have the best viewing experience possible.  The Digital Screen Checker allows us to utilise a low cost solution on our weekly lamp inspection reports to measure screen brightness in each of our auditoria.  The readings obtained from the device help our technicians to understand the impact of projector configuration, power settings, lamp life and screen quality on a regular basis and take remedial action to ensure that our brightness levels are maintained,” says Tina Loucks, Digital Services Specialist at Rave Cinemas.” 
 
The battery powered Digital Screen Checker provides instant readings, accurate to within 0.5fL for both 2D and 3D screens and is calibrated to be accurate even in the lower ranges used in 3D projection.  The foot lambert reading is shown on an LED digital display and is expressed to at least one decimal place. 
 
“Modern Theatre Management Systems are capable of providing a lot of information about the projector setup, but they cannot determine the screen brightness.  The industry is more than aware of Xenon lamp light output degradation and regular use of the Digital Screen Checker is a very simple way of confirming this,” explains Richard Mitchell, Worldwide Marketing Manager at Harkness Screens.  “Rave Cinemas adoption of the Digital Screen Checker shows a real awareness of this significant issue which all cinema operators face and a genuine commitment to monitoring light output and we are delighted that Rave Cinemas chose our device.” 
 
Available globally, the Digital Screen Checker ships as a complete unit with carry case, tripod and 3D lens holder.
