HARKNESS SCREENS SHOWCASES DIGITAL SCREEN SELECTOR AT SHOWEST 2010

Application Identifies Cost-Effective Solutions for Digital Cinema Conversion

LAS VEGAS, NV, MARCH 15, 2010 — Harkness Screens, the world’s leading manufacturer of projection screens for cinema applications, will showcase its Digital Screen Selector at ShoWest 2010 (Booth 1814).

Intended as an aid to theatre operators seeking to optimise their investment in digital cinema, the Digital Screen Selector can help to:
•Reduce operating costs for 2D
•Optimise light levels for both 2D and 3D

The Digital Screen Selector is available through the Harkness web-site; it has a user-friendly interface with no software download required and uses industry-accepted standards and vendor data to compare different operating scenarios. The Selector is intended to be a guide for theatre operators when consulting with projector, lamp, and 3D technology providers.

“We are very pleased to be able to offer our new Digital Screen Selector to cinema professionals around the world,? says Andrew Robinson, managing director of Harkness Screens. “By answering a few quick questions about the screen size and equipment being used in a particular theatre, the Selector suggests Harkness screen options to optimise performance and cost.?

Harkness’ Perlux® gain screens reduce digital cinema projector brightness requirements significantly relative to matt white screens, enabling the use of smaller lamps that are cheaper, last longer, consume less power, roughly halving operating costs. Additionally, if the screen is considered at the same time as the projector investment, a smaller (and cheaper) projector can be an option.

For new builds and digital retrofits, a Perlux® screen can pay for itself in under a year. For existing digital installations, a Perlux® replacement screen can pay for itself in just two years. Additionally, replacement screen implementations can be self-funding, and deployment models can be prepared for the customer by a Harkness representative.

Gain screens can also be a “green? investment because they can help reduce theater energy consumption, and can help exhibitors meet building codes for energy efficiency.

“We are committed to the trend in digital cinema and will continue to develop our products to optimize this application,? adds Robinson.
