CinemaCon, Las Vegas, NV—Apr 15, 2013
Harkness Screens Launches Free Digital Screen Modeller Tool for PC and Apple iOS
the world’s leading manufacturer of projection surfaces for cinema and
thought-leaders in on-screen brightness has launched its brand new 3D
simulation tool, the Digital Screen Modeller.
Available as a free app on the Apple
iTunes store and via the Harkness Screens website (www.harkness-screens.com), the
Digital Screen Modeller is a 3D simulation tool that allows architects,
engineers and exhibitors to visualise and optimise digital cinema scenarios in
a virtual 3D environment.
“The Digital Screen Modeller forms the initial
element of what we believe to be the cinema industry’s first end-to-end
solution for cinema screens,” says Richard Mitchell, Worldwide Marketing
Manager (and visionary behind the tool) at Harkness Screens. “From the Digital
Screen Modeller and Digital Screen Selector tools (for design and planning)
through to manufactured screens, the Digital Screen Checker (luminance meter)
and the Digital Screen Archiver, exhibitors have a complete range of tools and
products for the entire cinema screen lifecycle”.
“For the first time key stakeholders in new
construction and refurbishment projects can visualise in a 3D environment the
impact of design choices above and beyond theoretical diagrams and really
understand how their chosen configurations will impact on audience viewing
experience,” Mitchell adds.
The information-rich model rapidly
created by the Digital Screen Modeller enables key project stakeholders to make
more informed decisions about digital cinema screen, projector and lamp choices
before they’re even installed to ensure that these comply with industry
standard brightness levels. The Digital
Screen Modeller is also an ideal tool for planned or proposed retrofit and
refurbishment projects to visualise the impact on brightness levels and
operating costs in existing environments.
Whilst simple to use, the visual outcomes
produced by the Digital Screen Modeller can often require further
interpretation or optimisation to ensure that the best configuration is
achieved. To assist designers and exhibitors with specifying correct
configurations, a free E-consultancy functionality inside the tool enables
model data to be shared with Harkness Screens for further guidance.
“We’re delighted to launch the Digital Screen
Modeller at CinemaCon. The tool builds
on our existing and much-used Digital Screen Selector and further demonstrates
the innovation at the very heart of Harkness Screens,” adds Mitchell.
