CINE EUROPE (BOOTH #313), BARCELONA, SPAIN, JUNE 26TH 2013 - Harkness Screens, the world's leading manufacturer of cinema screens, announces the launch of Foldable Perlux® Digital screens manufactured from its European plant in Amilly, France. Foldable Perlux® Digital retains all the features of the Perlux® Digital line, with the added capability of being folded rather than rolled.
"With the costs of packaging and transportation continuing to rise across Europe, we recognised a need to assist our customers in managing budgets. Adding foldable options of our Perlux® Digital 140, 180 and 220 products to our range means that we now have white gain screens available in a format that will help dramatically lower packing and transportation costs compared to traditional screen distribution. Aligned to the cost savings, these screens, which ship inside a box are much more easily manoeuvrable into the auditorium making the installation process potentially less awkward and expensive," says Tony Dilley, Head of International Sales at Harkness Screens.
Manufactured in Europe, Foldable Perlux® Digital screens typically realise packaging cost savings of 66% and transportation savings of 20% against standard delivery methods. Foldable Perlux® Digital screens can be shipped by standard carriers on overnight despatch, significantly reducing delivery times.
When installed using Harkness Screens prescribed installation techniques, Foldable Perlux® Digital screens provide a guaranteed crease-free, seamless projection surface and are currently the only foldable gain screens available in the world.
Harkness' Perlux® Digital brand (foldable and rolled) gain screens (Perlux® Digital 140, Perlux® 180 and Perlux® 220) include both 2D and 3D (non-polarised light) screen surfaces for any size theatre with foldable screens available up to (33m x 14m/ in size). Harkness' Perlux® Digital screens are considered by leading cinema exhibitors and special venue operators worldwide to be the premier gain projection surface.
