Harkness Screens Release New Versions Of Recently Launched Apps

Harkness Screens has released new versions of its recently launched iOS and web-based Digital Screen Modeller and Digital Screen Archiver apps.
Both apps, which were released at CinemaCon 2013 and are currently available as free apps on the Apple iTunes store and via the Harkness Screens website, have received graphical interface updates to enhance user experience and a series of functionality additions have also been added.
The Digital Screen Modeller is a 3D simulation tool that allows architects, engineers and exhibitors to visualise and optimise digital cinema scenarios in a virtual environment to help make more informed decisions about screen, projector and lamp choices before they're even installed or as part of planned refurbishment projects.
The Digital Screen Archiver is a secure cloud-based tool that aids projectionists, managers, engineers and exhibitors to maintain their digital cinema auditoria. The tools enables key cinema data to be captured in a standardised format during maintenance visits and use extensive back-end reporting tools to schedule maintenance and monitor screen performance against industry standards.
"We're astonished by the speed of uptake of the apps. Since CinemaCon we've had over 650 downloads of the apps and from the feedback we're receiving, the apps are proving extremely useful to the industry as a whole. We've taken on-board a lot of the suggestions we've received from our user base and added many of these into this brand new release," said Richard Mitchell, Worldwide Marketing Manager at Harkness Screens.
New functionality in the Digital Screen Modeller includes the ability to offset screens within the auditorium, identify the seat closest to the spectral path, view light-on screen in candela per square metre (Cd/m2), export model data to email and use the new in-seat picker tool to move between seats. On top of this the Digital Screen Modeller now includes the new Sony 3D systems, Christie SP lamps and Harkness’ newly launched 4th generation silver screen surface Clarus 170.
