Harkness Screens Launches New Clarus 170 Passive Screen 3D Surface

Screens the world’s leading manufacturer of projection surfaces for cinema and thought-leaders in on-screen brightness has launched its brand new passive 3D screen surface Clarus 170.
 
Designed for use in large format auditoria (using two projectors) or smaller to mid-sized theatres where 3D systems using polarised light are deployed, the Clarus 170 3D surface also enhances conventional 2D presentation enabling DCI compliance with optimised theatre geometry.
 
“We developed our new Clarus 170 screens to provide cinema operators with the ability to optimise digital projection and improve overall light distribution across the screen for polarised 3D; a key customer requirement.  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,” says Richard Mitchell, Worldwide Marketing Manager of Harkness Screens.
 
Clarus 170 3D screens use Harkness’ brand new 4th generation screen technology to provide a wide viewing angle and significantly increases overall brightness uniformity across the screen whilst maintaining suitable light on screen for 2D and 3D projection. 
 
“With our new Clarus 170 3D surface we’ve been able to significantly reduce visual hot spotting which is often seen on higher gain screens. Clarus 170 allows exhibitors to benefit from more even light distribution across the screen without the need to radically alter equipment specification such as lamp size or lamp power which lower gain 3D screens might require,” Mitchell adds. 
 
Specialist 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 in Clarus 170 we are ready to spring-board towards the next generation of the world’s leading screens for 3D,” adds Mitchell.
