Harkness Screens the world’s leading screen technology company and thought-leaders in on-screen brightness has launched its brand new 4th generation 2D and 3D screen surface, Clarus XC.
Clarus XC technology is the result of significant work by Harkness’ Research and Development team and brings together a number of proprietary technologies to create a screen surface for the age of immersive cinema which has been approved by major Hollywood film studios.
Designed to work with all passive 3D systems, 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.Clarus XC technology is available in three different gain levels, 1.4, 1.7 and 2.2 designed to suit all digital cinema environments from small screening rooms through to large format theatres. The new 4th generation d-smooth coating technology has specific properties more commonly seen in white screens. This technology enables Clarus screens to benefit from significantly improved light distribution compared to traditional 3D silver screens. Through this, visible hot-spotting is reduced and uniformity is greatly increased, making compliance with 2D industry standards more easily achievable. Harkness’ proprietary and unique seam welding process along with Harkness’ brand new d-smooth coating technology means Clarus screens have no visible seams under projection conditions and most importantly a smooth visual finish. Clarus XC technology is available in three different gain levels, 1.4, 1.7 and 2.2 designed to suit all digital cinema environments from small screening rooms through to large format theaters.
