Strong-MDI introduces high-brightness Premium HGA screen

Nov 1, 2013

Strong-MDI, a Ballantyne Strong company, introduced the Premium HGA, a leading-edge screen equipped with new, exclusive Hi-Gain coating technology at ShowEast 2013 in Hollywood, FL.

The Premium HGA significantly decreases the infamous hotspot effect and increases overall brightness across the entire screen surface. The proprietary technology gives the new 2.9-gain silver screen a generous HGA (half gain angle) of 25 degrees, allowing large-format screens to achieve this level of high gain without compromising the optimal viewing angle. Premium HGA’s higher performance will be applicable to both 2D and 3D presentations.

One of the first installations of the Premium HGA screen occurred at Carmike Cinema’s “BigD” Theatre in Columbus, Georgia. David Pfegl, director of services for Carmike Cinemas, said, “The Premium HGA screen has taken the premium moviegoing experience we can offer to our customers to another level. The brighter screen and wider viewing angles are a substantial improvement over previous screen formats and clearly positions the Carmike as one of the best premium auditoriums in our market.”
