CineEurope again chooses Harkness Clarus XC screen

Technology and New Products

Harkness Screens’ Clarus XC technology will be the screen of choice for 2D and 3D theatrical presentations during CineEurope 2018. The show’s auditorium inside the CCIB in Barcelona will feature a 26.35m x 7.5m Clarus XC 170 screen. 

Designed to work with all polarized 3D systems due to their speckle reduction properties, Clarus XC screens boast a whiter look, resulting in a more defined and sharper picture.

“We’re delighted to continue the long association with the biggest and best movie convention in Europe, providing our Clarus XC technology once again,” said Richard Mitchell, VP of global marketing and commercial development at Harkness Screens.   “Each year, Bob and Andrew Sunshine along with the team at the Film Expo Group and Kelonik transform the auditorium within the CCIB into a state-of-the-art cinema, creating an incredible venue for movie studios and manufacturers to showcase the best of cinema. We’re very honored to see our products performing such an important part in this.”

Clarus XC technology features fourth-generation “d-smooth” coating technology which has specific properties more commonly seen in white screens. This technology enables significantly wide viewing angles, improved color and contrast and better light distribution compared to traditional 3D silver screens. 

The screen will also feature Harkness’ NanolastTM coating technology launched in 2017, which provides additional improvements in visual performance as well as added durability. It will also feature Harkness’ proprietary 4K Digital Perforation Pattern designed to improve sound transmission in the spoken range, reduce moiré effect often seen in 4K projection and increase light reflectivity.

Cine Europe 2018 attendees are invited to visit the Harkness Screens suite during the show at Meeting Room 131 on the CCIB’s first floor.
