Harkness Screens Introduces Perlux® Digital 2D/3D Presentation Surfaces to European Market at CineEurope 2011

Optimized for Digital Projection and Requiring Minimal Colour Correction

AMSTERDAM, JUNE 29, 2011 — Harkness Screens, the world’s leading manufacturer of cinema screens, introduces Perlux® Digital to the European market at this year’s CineEurope (Booth 212). Perlux® Digital retains all the features of the Perlux® line, with the added benefit of being optimised for digital projection. Screen samples will be available at the Harkness booth throughout the duration of the show.

“We developed our new Perlux® Digital screens to provide cinema operators the ability to optimise digital projection,? says Andrew Robinson, Managing Director of Harkness Screens. “Harkness Screens has always been committed to providing the cinema industry with cutting edge, state-of-the-art presentation surfaces and the Perlux® Digital is a testament to that fact.?

Ideal for larger screens with active and passive 3D technologies (not using polarised light), such as Dolby 3D, and for large 2D screens, Perlux® Digital requires minimal colour correction during projector setup, thus reducing the complexity of converting to digital. Perlux® Digital is 30 percent whiter than the prior Perlux® formation while maintaining the same impressive brightness, viewing angles and invisible seams that Harkness is known.

Harkness’ Perlux® brand gain screens (Perlux® 140, Perlux® 180 and Perlux® 220) include both 2D and 3D screen surfaces for any size theater. Harkness’ Perlux® screens are considered by leading cinema exhibitors and special venue operators worldwide to be the premier gain projection surface.

Perlux® 140 is a versatile 2D screen intended for medium-sized auditoria where as the Perlux® 180 is designed for larger auditoria. Both surfaces offer high contrast, bright pictures and wide viewing angles. Harkness’ proprietary and unique seam welding process ensures its screens have no visible seams under projection conditions. Perlux® 220 is a special ultra-high brightness screen intended for 3D non-polarised light systems such as Dolby and active glasses technologies and is also well-suited for very large 2D digital auditoria.
