Harkness Screens Sells 1,000th Digital Screen Checker

At ShowEast 2011, Harkness Screens the world’s leading manufacturer of projection screens for cinema, launched its Digital Screen Checker, a brand new version of its previous luminance meter to critical acclaim, not just because of its affordability at around $750 per unit but the accuracy (within +/-0.2fL) which rivals significantly more expensive alternative light meters. 

Since its debut, the unit has been sold across the world to both large and small cinema exhibitors and recently Harkness sold its 1,000th unit.  
 
“The groundswell of interest behind the product has been phenomenal; there’s been a real buzz about it which appears to be continuing as the industry gets more switched on to issues surrounding on screen brightness levels.  At every trade show we’re inundated with enquiries and the feedback from those purchasing the unit has been overwhelmingly positive.  We genuinely believe that the Digital Screen Checker is well on the way to becoming the tool of choice for use when checking screen brightness in auditoria and a low-cost, zero-compromise solution where the more expensive meters are unaffordable,” says Richard Mitchell, Worldwide Marketing Manager at Harkness Screens. 
 
The Digital Screen Checker is a hand-held digital cinema device measures screen brightness, expressing readings in foot lamberts. An ideal tool for projection managers / projectionists or service engineers to monitor screen brightness and lamp life, the Digital Screen Checker helps exhibitors to ensure that their presentations remain at optimum levels and ensure DCI-compliancy. 
 
The battery powered Digital Screen Checker provides instant readings 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.
