Event Screens

Event organizers and set designers worldwide choose Harkness Screens™ because our event screen surfaces are engineered and constructed using the highest quality materials and manufacturing processes to ensure an outstanding finish with excellent brightness, colour rendition, and contrast.

We produce large custom screens for applications such as:

  • Live theatre/opera

  • TV studios
  • Product launch backdrops/projection surfaces 
  • Fashion shows
  • Exhibition stands and conference sets
  • Special lighting effects
  • Touring shows
  • Spectacular events
  • Film premieres

We can supply a wide range to meet almost any exhibition need, including surfaces for:

  • Front or rear projection (or both)
  • A range of ambient lighting conditions
  • Moving images, lighting effects, or set scenery
  • 2D and 3D formats
  • Temporary or permanent installations

Harkness event screens are PVC projection surfaces that can be used where a specific screen size or shape is required to project images or lighting effects.  Materials are available off-roll or made up into custom-sized screens.

Event organizers and set designers are increasingly using projection screens for state-of-the-art sets to create exciting projection and lighting effects. These screens, ideal for use with the current generation of powerful video projectors, provide a higher quality projected image than can be obtained using cloth. The screen can provide the entire set backdrop, which can be more flexible than using drapes and built-in screens. Custom screens provide economic solutions for one-off events, for touring shows, as well as more permanent use in TV studios and live theatre.  Harkness Screens provide the ideal surfaces to ensure the highest quality presentation for organizers and designers.
