Harkness Screens, the world's leading manufacturer of projection screens for cinema applications, showcases Perlux 220 at this year's ShoWest (Booth 1814). Perlux 220 offers increased screen brightness for larger screens with active and passive 3D technologies (not using polarized light), such as Dolby 3D, and for large 2D screens.
Perlux Screens are considered by leading cinema exhibitors and special venue operators worldwide to be the premier gain projection surface. Harkness Screens' Perlux 220 meets the requirements for the highest possible gain while maintaining acceptable viewing angles.
"ShoWest is the perfect venue to showcase our newest 3D screen, the Perlux 220," says Andrew Robinson, managing director of Harkness Screens. "We are committed to the trend in digital cinema and will continue to develop our products to optimize this application."
Perlux 220 is noted for its invisible seams under normal projection conditions. Perlux 220 is available in full screen perforated form where behind screen speakers are required.
Perlux 220 standard perf offers a minimum viewing distance of 15 feet from the front row to screen surface. For closer viewing, in screening rooms, mini-perf option is recommended. Non-perforated is also available. The screen can be ordered up to 79-feet 3-inches by 40-feet 7-inches (24.1m x 12.4m) for the U.S. market or up to 87-feet by 36-feet (26.5m x 11m) for European orders.
With the increased emphasis on sound demanded by today's audiences, the screen perforation size of the Perlux 220 is .047-inches (1.2mm) with a perforation density of 4.5 percent to optimize optical and acoustic performance.
Perlux 220 has obtained several fire retardancy certifications including those in the U.S., UK, Germany, Spain, Italy, Japan, Korea and Australia.
