Harkness Screens Releases New Version of the Digital Screen Modeller
Harkness Screens the world’s leading screen
technology company and thought-leaders in on-screen brightness has released
version 4.0 of its revolutionary 3D real-time simulation tool, the Digital
Available as a free download on the iOS and Android
platform as well as via the Harkness website, 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 environment.
“With an install base of over 1,500 in just over 14
months, the Digital Screen Modeller has quickly established itself as the
leading industry tool for accurately simulating on-screen brightness levels in
cinema,” says Richard Mitchell, Head of Global Marketing at Harkness
Screens. “The latest release brings a
greater depth of clarity and visual understanding to issues that affect
on-screen viewing performance.”
At the backbone of the release are two brand new simulation
tools for optimisation.
- The Visual Performance Indicator highlights all seats
within the auditorium that fall within an acceptable tolerance (50%+) of peak
centre screen brightness and displays these seats visually in a seat map.
“In the case of the Visual Performance Indicator it
highlights clearly the impact various design elements such as auditorium width,
throw distance, seating rake and screen specification have on presentation
quality. The new tool enables exhibitors
to focus on improving the viewing experience throughout the auditorium which in
turn can have a positive effect on increasing customer satisfaction and boosting
box office revenue, either from increased occupancy rates or through premium
seating,” Mitchell adds.
- The Lamp Life Simulator allows users to simulate visually the effect of
lamp life degradation and projection features such as light-lock to show
brightness levels throughout the life of a lamp.
Version 4.0 also includes other user requested
modifications such as more flexible seating options and new manufacturer content
including MasterImage’s Mi-Horizon3D and Mi-Horizon3DS systems, updated lamp
data and a number of performance improvements.
The Digital Screen Modeller is one part of
Harkness’ industry leading suite of screen lifecycle management apps which also
includes the Digital Screen Calculator and Digital Screen Archiver. To date the Harkness app suite has achieved
over 3,500 downloads since its launch at CinemaCon 2013.
