accurate low-cost light measurement tool allows brightness readings to be taken
(in foot lamberts) using white test patterns from a digital cinema
Digital Screen Verifier is something we’ve been working on for over two years,
in fact it’s origins date back to the early R&D work we carried out on the
Digital Screen Modeller,” says Richard Mitchell, Head of Global Marketing for
Harkness Screens. “We wanted to be able
to empower the cinema industry by providing a tool to measure light on screen
and ensure presentation quality standards, in terms of brightness levels, were

Digital Screen Verifier, we believe we’ve been able to achieve this democratising

light readings to be taken accurately to within +/-1fL. Its unique functionality not only allows for
light readings to be taken but also to be directly imported into Harkness’
cloud-based Digital Screen Archiver tool in real-time to form a semi-automated
entry-level solution for screen monitoring and auditorium maintenance.

accurately based upon the SMPTE specification,” says Mitchell. “The Verifier and Archiver tools combine
beautifully to form a semi-automated screen monitoring solution and are set to
become a very important part of our Curolux screen monitoring portfolio,” he
The Digital Screen Verifier is available now via
the Apple App Store priced $39.99 and is exclusively available for the iPhone
5, 5c, 5s, 6 and 6 plus. Further
