The world famous Cannes Festival sees Harkness Screens hosting an afternoon reception alongside Qalif Solutions and the CST

The event allows film makers, cinemas and cinema technologists to share their experiences and learn more about the Harkness contribution to the festival.

For over 12 years the screens trusted to present the directors’ masterpieces. have been those of Harkness supplied from their French Demospec Manufacturing Facility. The screens are positioned across Cannes to ensure and guarantee the image quality; traditionally the screens are Matt Plus; specifically engineered to provide laser speckle free presentation. Over recent years the Demospec Manufacturing Team have introduced PWT Screens from RealD and in the last few months the revolutionary white gain screen, Perlux HiWhite.

However, there is more to Harkness’ contribution to Cannes and that can be seen in the screen monitoring and image quality technology that Cannes Film Festival deploy. Harkness’ Nicolas Chiovini leads the team with colleagues from Qalif Solutions in support of the CST teams (Commission Supérieure Technique de l’image et du son) that lead the technical direction of the festival. Over the festival 1800 screenings will use the Harkness technology to give the best in presentation quality.

This year's event is being hosted by Eric Martin, and he welcomes attendees to meet with friends and colleagues on Saturday 18th May
