HARKNESS SCREENS LAUNCHES STAGELITE STEREO AT LDI 2012

The large screen wowed both event organisers and crowds alike with its low depolarisation rate and wide viewing angles (60 percent), giving an incredible 3D performance.

LAS VEGAS, OCTOBER 3, 2012 - Harkness Screens, the leading provider of front and rear projection surfaces to the events industry, launches its new Stagelite Stereo at this year's LDI Show (Booth 657). Stagelite Stereo is suitable for polarised 3D projection systems including RealD.


The surface has already been utilised at the recent Pula Film Festival in Croatia where a large 18.70 x 8.45m helped set a number of Guinness World Records. The large screen wowed both event organisers and crowds alike with its low depolarisation rate and wide viewing angles (60 percent), giving an incredible 3D performance.

"In Stagelite Stereo we believe we have a uniquely robust, cleanable and flexible product that the market has long required for 3D projection and we expect demand for the product to grow as more live events utilise 3D," says Richard Mitchell, Worldwide Marketing Manager, Harkness Screens.

Stagelite Stereo is a front projection surface specifically designed for non-cinema 3D applications. Silver aluminium flake based PVC fixed to a unique base material provides high gain characteristics, very low depolarisation level (extinction ratio) and excellent colour temperature. Folded and supplied in a parcel or packed in a long wooden box for larger screens, Stagelite Stereo also supports conventional 2D pictures and is also cleanable.
