Harkness Screens, the world’s leading manufacturer of cinema screens, introduces spectralTM 300 at this year’s CinemaCon show
is a specialist ultra-high brightness silver screen, with an increased gain of
25% against Harkness’ existing Spectral™ 240 product.
Spectral™ 300 gives excellent performance
with “passive” 3D applications using polarised light such as RealD where
achieving suitable brightness levels particularly for 3D presentation in larger
auditoria has proved problematic. It also performs well under 2D conditions and
can be used for 3D/4D rides, simulators and special effects.
developed our new higher-gain SpectralTM 300 screens to provide cinema
operators with the ability to optimise digital projection and improve
brightness levels, particularly under passive 3D conditions using polarised
light. It is these conditions where
light loss is proven to be most significant and where consequently presentation
quality can sometimes be below the standard required. Using this new, higher gain surface can help
exhibitors achieve sufficient brightness levels in their larger auditoria and we
are very happy to introduce it at CinemaCon 2012,” says Andrew Robinson,
Managing Director of Harkness Screens.
Silver aluminium flake based coating applied
to the unique base material provides high gain characteristics, strong signal
to noise ratios, generous viewing angles and excellent colour temperature
whilst utilising Harkness’ proprietary and unique seam welding process to
ensure that these screens have no visible seams under projection conditions.
“Harkness Screens has always been committed to
providing the cinema industry with cutting edge, state-of-the-art presentation
surfaces and SpectralTM 300 is a testament to that fact,”
