Harkness Screens' Custom Frames Take Shape at InfoComm

Harkness Screens' Custom Frames Take Shape at InfoComm
  • Harkness Screens will be showcasing a variety of custom frame solutions for pro-AV or cinema applications at InfoComm 2009 (Booth 2935).
  • Designed to accommodate any size or shape, Harkness’ custom screens and frames have been installed at a wide range of venues for such events as live theater/opera, film premieres, concerts, conventions, fashion shows, theme park attractions, product launches and touring shows.
  • The Harkness Screens Wrap-round frame system features a frame of prefabricated sections of round tubular steel that are bolted and clamped together with a projection screen wrapped around. Wrap-round frames can be flat or curved on the horizontal axis and can also be supplied with a raked screen. A tilting arrangement (mechanical or electrical) can be incorporated on wall-mounted frames.
  • The standard frame can be made to any size up to 88.5 feet wide and 40 feet high. Frames up to 26 feet wide can be wall mounted (above this size is recommended that it be mounted on vertical 'ladders'). Larger units are available as special orders. The picture size is identical to the frame size.


The MF frame system is a very popular system for general cinema and auditorium use as it is readily adaptable for most projection requirements. The MF frame can be made any size up to 75 ft. x 41 ft. high. MF frames are floor standing with brace stabilization to the rear. The MF frame can be supplied with a raked screen. The MF frame is available in both flat and curved versions. Larger units are available as special orders. The maximum picture size is a 1 ft. reduction on both dimensions of the frame.
