Harkness Screens Launch New 3D BIM Content Library to Support Improved Cinema Design and Construction
Harkness Screens the world’s leading screen
technology company has announced the launch of its 3D BIM (Building Information
Modelling) content library aimed at helping architects and those involved with
cinema design improve the outcome of their digital modelling projects.
This new content has been developed to support
those designing cinemas using Autodesk’s Revit platform, the world’s leading 3D
“The pace of technological change in the construction industry has been very
similar to that which the cinema industry undertook when converting from 35mm
to digital projection. Over the past ten
years, the wider construction industry outside of cinema has moved from
designing in 2D CAD to a significantly more collaborative, dynamic and
data-rich 3D environment,” says Richard Mitchell, VP Global Marketing and
Commercial Development at Harkness Screens.
“This change has helped project teams deliver better outcomes for their
clients through improved project planning, reduced risk, smarter project
coordination and increased levels of information which enable the client to
manage their asset (a building) more efficiently. A key component to providing clients with a
rich level of information about their building is relevant content from product
manufacturers.” he adds.
The new Harkness Screens BIM content library covers
the company’s complete portfolio of cinema screen products (including Perlux,
Clarus XC and Spectral) and allows cinema designers to size screens based on
common screen formats or custom sizes and then use innovative technology to
analyse the impact on potential viewing experiences based on auditorium and
screen design within the BIM model. In addition the content library also
feature the company’s screen packaging which allows design teams to identify
potential on-site clashes that may occur when transporting screens into the
auditorium and plan construction sequences accordingly to mitigate on-site
delays or costly errors.
“This latest addition from Harkness further extends
our commitment to helping enrich every cinema experience by providing innovative
solutions to support architects, exhibitors and integrators in improving
design, specification, install and use of cinema screens and their ongoing maintenance,”
explains Richard Mitchell.
The new Harkness BIM library is now available via
the Harkness website - www.harkness-screens.com.
