Harkness Screens the world’s leading screen
technology company and thought-leaders in on-screen brightness is once again
the preferred screen partner for the industry’s biggest event, Cinemacon 2016.
The show’s auditorium in the Colosseum at Caesars Palace featured two
18.2m x 7.85m Harkness screens; one a Clarus
XC 170 2D/3D screen, the other a Matt
White screen. The Clarus XC 170
screen used to showcase current generation xenon projection both in 2D and 3D
whilst also supporting Barco’s 6P laser projection technology. The Matt White screen was used to showcase
Christie’s 6P laser projection offerings.
Designed to work with all passive 3D systems and
widely regarded as the screen of choice for polarised laser 3D presentation due
to its speckle reduction properties, 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.
core, Clarus technology features 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.
Both the Clarus XC and Matt White screens featured Harkness’ 4K Digital
Perforation Pattern launched in December 2015.
This exclusive perforation pattern improves
sound attenuation in the spoken range, helps reduce moiré effect and increases reflectivity.
In addition to the two screens installed in the Colosseum, Harkness also
provided additional screens across the show including two Perlux Digital 180
screens used in the Octavius ballroom and a number of Clarus XC 170 and Matt
White screens for leading industry partners including Barco and Sony.
