MUMBAI, INDIA, 06 DECEMBER 2016: India’s favorite multiplex, INOX Leisure Ltd announced a strategic partnership with Harkness Screens, the world’s leading screen technology company to install Clarus XC 270 3D screen technology in over 100 screens. The deployment of the Clarus XC 270 3D screens will enable guests to experience 4th generation screens which will provide wide viewing angle, greater uniformity, improved color and contrast during both 2D and 3D screenings.
Designed to work with all passive 3D systems and approved by 3D manufacturers Clarus XC screens create visibly deeper 3D content which is designed to draw in the audience creating a more captivating viewing experience. Clarus XC 270 3D screens feature d-smooth technology and are designed for use in all cinema auditoriums where 3D systems using polarized light are deployed. Whilst designed for 3D, the surface type also supports conventional 2D pictures giving a viewing experience similar to that of a conventional white screen.

This strategic association with Harkness Screens will set a benchmark in the way patrons experience cinema and we believe going forward it has the potential to be an important differentiator for INOX.”
