Harkness Screens Launches Free Digital Screen Planner App for iOS and Android



CINEMACON, LAS VEGAS, USA, APRIL 14TH 2016 — Harkness Screens the world’s leading screen technology company and thought-leaders in on-screen brightness has launched its fifth tool in the Digital Screen App family; the Digital Screen Planner.

Aimed at architects, engineers, installers and exhibitors, the Digital Screen Planner from Harkness Screens is a free utility for iOS, Android and available via the Harkness website.  The tool allows those specifying cinema screens to carry out complex mathematical calculations quickly and accurately.

From physical screen curvature and tilt through to specifying the physical sheet size, the Digital Screen Planner is an ideal tool for ensuring that these key construction design elements and the actual screen specified are correct prior to the project, helping to prevent potentially costly on site delays or mistakes from occurring.

“We’re frequently asked by our customers to assist them with complex mathematical calculations to help with the specifications of screens.  At times these can become extremely complicated when considering the effects on curving and tilting a screen can have both on auditorium geometry and on correctly specifying the correct screen size.  We wanted to help share our expertise and empower the cinema industry in these very complicated areas and we believe with the Digital Screen Planner app we have achieved this,” explains Richard Mitchell, VP Global Marketing & Commercial Development at Harkness Screens.

The Digital Screen Planner app is available at no cost now via the Apple App Store for both iPhone and iPad and also on Android devices.  Further information can be found at www.harkness-screens.com/planner
