Harkness Screens Announces New Developments for Qalif, Cody Polla Appointed as VP Qalif Business Unit
Harkness Screens, the leading global screen technology company, is pleased to announce new developments for its Qalif product range, which continues to provide the benchmark for screen optimization. The Qalif Ultimate has been successfully deployed globally, and the accelerated post-Covid roll out of laser projectors has increased the demand for accurate installation engineering, with the trusted option being the Qalif Spectro.
Despite the global electronic component shortages, the Qalif product range is being actively deployed, with lead times not exceeding 12 weeks. At the heart of these developments has been Cody Polla, who has worked for Harkness since 2015. Cody has combined Qalif product management with providing technical support to US theaters through IRIS and myHarkness.
Harkness CFO, Patrick Carolan, commented, “We have worked closely with Qalif Solutions to provide innovative measurement tools that work across screen, projection, and sound. Cody’s tireless efforts to the product range have allowed Harkness to establish Qalif as a profit center. With that, Cody has accepted the position of VP Qalif Business Unit. This will continue to drive product innovation and sales.”
In his new role, Cody will continue to lead the Qalif product range’s development, ensuring that it remains at the forefront of screen optimization technology. This will enable Harkness to provide the highest levels of service and support to its customers worldwide.
The Qalif product range provides Harkness customers with unparalleled accuracy and precision in screen optimization, projection, and sound. Harkness looks forward to continuing to work closely with Qalif Solutions and Cody Polla to provide the best possible products and support to its customers.
