Harkness' Clarus XC is official screen of CineAsia 2017

Technology and New Products

Harkness Screens’ Clarus XC technology is the screen of choice for 2D and 3D theatrical presentations during CineAsia 2017, the industry’s leading event for the Asian market.

The show’s auditorium in the Hong Kong Exhibition Centre features a 10.7 m x 4.7 m Clarus XC 170 screen used to showcase the latest show reels and movies from leading distributors both in 2D and 3D, using RealD technology and Christie projection.

Designed to work with all polarized 3D systems, Clarus XC screens create visibly deeper 3D content. A whiter and more uniform look under projection means that colors look richer and more accurate both in 2D and 3D. 

“We’re delighted to continue our long association with CineAsia providing our Clarus XC technology  for the fourth successive year, this time incorporating our brand-new NanolastTM technology, which improves the visual performance of the screen by creating an even smoother finish,” stated Richard Mitchell, Harkness’ VP, global marketing and commercial development.

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 also features Harkness’ exclusive 4K Digital Perforation Pattern, designed to improve sound transmission in the spoken range, reduce moiré effect often seen in 4K projection, and increase lightreflectivity.
