Harkness Screens Improves Clarus XC 170 for Laser Projection

Harkness Screens the world’s leading screen technology company and thought-leaders in on-screen brightness has modified its new 4th generation 2D and 3D screen surface, Clarus XC 170 to further improve performance with laser projection.

“This very small but important improvement to Clarus XC 170 further reduces visible speckle when using laser projection technology without compromising on viewing performance,” says Matt Jahans, International Technical Services Manager at Harkness Screens.

Clarus XC 170 technology has been tested with laser projectors and found to substantially reduce visible speckle substantially more than traditional silver screen technology including Harkness’ own Spectral screens.

“Cinema owners are always looking for new ways to get better, brighter images on screen. So Barco was proud, earlier this year, to launch the first commercial laser projector that addresses those needs,” says Goran Stojmenovik, Product Manager for Laser Projection at Barco. “It is great to see how Harkness Screens now offers a screen that allows exhibitors to combine our laser-based projectors with passive polarisation technology and silver screens without compromising image quality. The new Clarus XC 170 ensures that the bright images and vivid colours are retained on-screen, thus creating that immersive experience that we had in mind when developing our laser-based projector technology.”

Designed to work with all passive 3D systems, Clarus XC screens create visibly deeper 3D content which draws in the audience creating a more captivating viewing experience.  A whiter look under projection mean that colours look visibly richer and more accurate both in 2D and 3D resulting in a more defined, sharper and crisper picture.  

The new 4th generation d-smooth coating technology has specific properties more commonly seen in white screens.  This technology enables Clarus XC screens to benefit from significantly improved light distribution compared to traditional 3D silver screens.  Through this, visible hot-spotting is reduced and uniformity is greatly increased, making compliance with 2D industry standards more easily achievable.
Clarus XC technology is available in three different gain levels, 1.4, 1.7 and 2.2 designed to suit all For more information on the Clarus family visit www.harkness-screens.com/ClarusXC
