Screens, the world leader in screen technology and manufacturer of premium
cinema screens, has announced the introduction of its new high performance
coating technology Nanolast™.
coating technology is an improvement added to the formulation of all of
Harkness’ coated screen families (including Clarus XC, Perlux and
Spectral). The new technology adds a
stronger polymer structure to the existing coating technology to create a
significantly more robust and durable surface with added visual performance
Harrison CTO of Harkness Screens said “At Harkness we strive to continue to
improve the performance of our screens.
NanolastTM technology is a major enhancement providing
exhibitors with a more durable screen less prone to installation or surface damage.
By adding additional strength to the base coating technology, we are able to
mitigate the most often seen types of screen damage and therefore reduce the
risk of exhibitors requiring screen replacements thus improving total cost of
ownership from their Harkness coated cinema screens.”
improving robustness, NanolastTM technology also enhances the visual
performance of screen surfaces by creating an even smoother, whiter and more
uniform finish. This improvement creates
a more immersive viewing experience by increasing the richness of colours,
adding further depth of field to 3D presentations and widening viewing angles.
of our customers are now starting to rapidly adopt the latest projection
technologies including phosphor and RGB laser.
The unique properties of NanolastTM provide a complementary
surface for showcasing the visual improvements offered in the latest generation
of cinema projectors such as 4K, HDR and wide color gamut,” Harrison adds.
technology is an incremental improvement added to all Harkness coated screens
and is now available from Harkness’ global manufacturing facilities in USA,
China, UK, France and India.
