The Harkness Screens Clarus XC will be the screen of choice for theatrical presentations during Cinemacon 2017.The show’s auditorium in the Colosseum at Caesars Palace will feature a 71-foot by 30.25-foot Clarus XC 170 screen to showcase the latest laser projection technology and current generation xenon projection both in 2D and 3D. 

Designed to work with all polarized 3D systems and designed for polarized laser 3D presentation due to its speckle reduction properties, Clarus XC screens create visibly deeper 3D content.

“We’re delighted to continue our long association with Cinemacon providing our Clarus XC technology to the Colosseum for the fourth successive year,” said Richard Mitchell, vice president global marketing & commercial development at Harkness Screens.  Each year Mitch (Neuhauser) and his team along with the outstanding team from Boston Light and Sound create a truly magnificent environment for major Hollywood studios and manufacturers to showcase the best of cinema and we’re honoured to be a part of that.”

The screen will also feature 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 light reflectivity.

In addition to the showcase Clarus XC screen, Harkness will also provide a Matt Plus screen to the Colosseum for showcasing the latest projection offerings from Dolby and Christie.
