Harkness Screens has once again partnered with the Film Expo Group to provide its leading Clarus XC technology for CineEurope 2023. A permanent fixture at the convention since 2014, Clarus XC technology will be utilized to showcase all 2D and 3D theatrical presentations during the event.
“We’re delighted to once again partner with our colleagues at Harkness Screens to bring the best-in-class screen technology to our attendees,” said Film Expo Group president Andrew Sunshine. “We know that the screens they provide help to deliver immersive experiences that leave our audiences wowed whilst also providing assurance to our studio partners that their content will be shown in the best possible way.”
The show’s auditorium inside the CCIB will feature a 26.35-meter by 7.5-meter Clarus XC 170 mini-perforated screen. Its unique coating technology creates ultra-wide viewing angles and a visibly whiter finish under projected light than traditional 3D screens creating richer colors, maintaining contrast and delivering a sharper picture. Harkness’ unique mini-perforation pattern is designed to support the use of 4K projection and will assist in the CCIB projection delivering images clear of moiré.
Custom made for Cine Europe at Harkness’ leading screen manufacturing facility in Amilly, France, the screens supplied to the show showcase built-in technologies that enable Harkness to deliver improvements to the environmental impact of screens.
“We’re delighted to continue our long association with the biggest and best movie convention in Europe providing our Clarus XC technology to such an incredible venue,” said Eric Martin, general manager at Harkness Screens’ French manufacturing facility. “Our team values the partnership with the Film Expo Group, and it is an honor to be able to support our colleagues in distribution to showcase what promises to be an amazing slate that will undoubtedly help the industry continue its strong recovery. We are also delighted to be able to utilize our proximity to the European market through our global manufacturing network to provide our screens to CineEurope with the lowest possible carbon footprint saving as much as 75 percent of CO2 emissions associated with transportation and logistics versus screens sourced outside of Europe.”
