Harkness Screens Unveils the Digital Screen Calculator

A New App for Screen Lifecycle Management
Harkness Screens the world’s leading manufacturer of projection surfaces for cinema and thought-leaders in on-screen brightness has released its third in a series of screen lifecycle management apps designed at assisting cinema operators with managing their screen portfolio.
 
The Digital Screen Calculator is a free utility on iOS, Android and through the Harkness website that allows engineers and exhibitors to ensure that digital cinema investments are fully optimised.  Quick and easy to use, the tool calculates the capabilities of equipment choices and provides recommendations on projector, lamp and screen choices based upon chosen screen size and light levels for 2D and 3D.  It also calculates theoretical operating costs and shows how screen choice might reduce these dramatically. 
 
“In three years the Digital Screen Selector, which we’ve now retired, proved to be a massive success gaining over a thousand registered users and increasing awareness of key brightness issues. The new Digital Screen Calculator is a direct replacement for that tool and builds on all of the useful features that our user base came to know and love with some quite significant enhancements and cross platform integration.  We’ve kept the interface and operation very similar to our other iOS and Android apps so it’s an intuitive and familiar feeling from the get go for our existing app user base,” says Richard Mitchell, Worldwide Marketing Manager at Harkness Screens.
 
One significant productivity gain from the Digital Screen Calculator is its bi-directional  functionality which allows information entered in to the Digital Screen Calculator to be exported rapidly to further simulate and evaluate equipment choices in the Digital Screen Modeller (Harkness’ 3D screen modelling app).  Likewise models created in the Digital Screen Modeller can be exported to the Digital Screen Calculator to carry out operating cost comparisons.
 
“These apps continue to change the way exhibitors think about issues such as light on screen, brightness uniformity, theatre design and screen management as a whole. In the relatively short time these apps have been available they’ve started resolving real-world issues.  With the Digital Screen Calculator we’re able for the first time to properly identify potential operational cost savings that might be achievable through careful equipment specification and optimisation and we’re confident that the Calculator will prove a huge success” Mitchell concludes.
 
The Digital Screen Calculator is available now for download via the Apple App Store, Google Play/Android Market and also through the Harkness website.
