Harkness Screens sells 1,000th digital screen checker

Dec 12, 2012

Harkness Screens, the world’s leading manufacturer of projection screens for cinemas, has sold its 1,000th unit of the Digital Screen Checker, the new version of its previous luminance meter.

“The groundswell of interest behind the product has been phenomenal,” says Richard Mitchell, worldwide marketing manager at Harkness. “There’s been a real buzz about it which appears to be continuing as the industry gets more switched on to issues surrounding screen brightness levels… We genuinely believe that the Digital Screen Checker is well on the way to becoming the tool of choice for use when checking screen brightness in auditoria and a low-cost, zero-compromise solution where the more expensive meters are unaffordable.”

The Digital Screen Checker is a handheld digital-cinema device to measure screen brightness, expressing readings in foot-lamberts. It provides instant readings for both 2D and 3D screens and is calibrated to be accurate even in the lower ranges used in 3D projection. The foot-lambert reading is shown on an LED digital display and is expressed to at least one decimal place.

An impassioned lead performance and timely parallels to contemporary social issues enliven and elevate this otherwise somewhat routine biopic. More »

Film Review: Into the Woods

Over-scaled, too dark and only intermittently charming Sondheim musical adaptation does a disservice to a great cast and is often so noisy you can't even appreciate the music. More »
