Titanic 3D Premiere Sets Sail on Spectral™ 240 Screen

Harkness Screens, the world’s leading manufacturer of cinema screens recently supplied its industry-leading Spectral™ 240 3D silver screen for the long-awaited London premiere of James Cameron’s multi-Academy Award winning film, Titanic 3D held at the Royal Albert Hall. 
 
“The 3D conversion of Titanic was estimated to have taken over 60 weeks to produce and cost around $18 million to make,” says Tony Dilley, International Sales Manager at Harkness Screens. “With such an effort being made to convert one of Hollywood’s greatest ever epics, it was important that its premiere in London left audiences impressed.  We were delighted to work with Fox Studios, Andy Peat Associates, Lightstorm, Christie and RealD, not only to supply the 21.1 x 9.0m SpectralTM 240 3D screen, but also to provide support and advice on the installation of the screen and the projection set up.” 
 
Harkness’ Spectral™ 240 3D silver screens are considered by cinema exhibitors and special venue operators worldwide to be the optimum 3D projection surface for 3D systems using polarised light.

Spectral™ 240 is a high brightness silver screen that gives excellent performance with “passive” 3D applications using polarised light such as RealD. It also performs well under 2D conditions. The 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.
