7.85m (71’ x 30.25’) Clarus XC 170 screen used to
showcase both 2D and 3D content from major distributors.
Designed to work with all polarized 3D systems and
regarded as the screen of choice for polarized 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.

with Cinemacon providing our Clarus XC technology for the fifth time to the
Colosseum,” explains Richard Mitchell, VP Global Marketing & Commercial
Development at Harkness Screens. Each
year Mitch (Neuhauser) and his incredible team along with Boston Light and
Sound transform the Colosseum into one of the best cinema auditoria in the
world creating a truly magnificent environment for major Hollywood studios and
manufacturers to showcase the best of cinema.
