Free to download from the Apple App Store and the Android Market, the Digital Screen Modeller from Harkness Screens is a 3D simulation tool
The information-rich model rapidly created by the Digital Screen Modeller enables key project stakeholders to make more informed decisions about digital cinema screen, projector and lamp choices before they’re even installed to ensure that these comply with industry standard brightness levels. The Digital Screen Modeller is also an ideal tool for planned or proposed retrofit and refurbishment projects to visualise the impact on brightness levels and operating costs in existing environments.
A quick 6 step process enables a 3D model of an auditorium to be created with iterations displayed instantaneously.
Current digital cinema manufacturer content
All of the latest projector, lamp, 3D system and screen information from the world’s leading digital cinema manufacturers.
Bi-directional functionality with Digital Screen Modeller
Re-use the data entered in to the Digital Screen Modeller to further evaluate your equipment choices in the Digital Screen Calculator. With one-click functionality, data can be moved into the Calculator to quickly analyse equipment choices to ascertain achievable brightness and potential operating cost savings from screen choice. Likewise, datasets already created in the Digital Screen Calculator can quickly be transferred to the Digital Screen Modeller to run 3D simulations. (Note this functionality only works on the same software platform and requires both apps to be installed on the same device).
Visual and numeric screen brightness simulation
Pick any seat in the created auditorium to see on-screen brightness levels at nine points on the screen. Move from seat to seat, make changes to the auditorium design and see the impact of brightness levels instantaneously.
