Harkness Screens Lights Up Hugo 3D Laser Demonstration at IBC 2012 with Spectral 240 3D Screen

Harkness Screens, the world’s leading manufacturer of projection screens for cinema and events applications, assisted Christie Digital and Xpand in achieving an industry first, showing a full-length feature film in 3D at 14fL, the DCI-specification for 2D presentation using Laser projection. 
 
The showing of Martin Scorsese’s Hugo in 3D held in the ‘IBC Big Screen’ theatre at RAI Amsterdam utilised a 16.7m x 7m Harkness Spectral 240 3D silver screen along with Christie Digital’s first prototype laser projector and Xpand’s active 3D system. 
 
 “The industry is extremely aware of the brightness level issues involved with 3D digital cinema.  This demonstration provided a glimpse into the not too distant future at what might be achievable and also highlighted that whilst our Spectral 3D surfaces are usually deployed in passive 3D systems, the high gain properties can make it suitable for active systems.  The screening was simply stunning and showed just how impressive 3D content can look with correct brightness levels, says Tony Dilley, Head of International Sales at Harkness Screens.
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.
