At NAB 2016, the company is announcing new technology developments for its latest Scanity HDR film scanner. This year’s stand, located in the south lower hall (SL10530), will feature DFT’s state-of-the-art Wetgate technology and its latest small gauge film gate strategy.

 

New for NAB 2016:

 

NEW Wetgate System: A full wetgate system will be demonstrated at the DFT stand. Specifically designed for Scanity HDR, it provides a real-time solution for ingest and management of difficult to solve historical film transfer issues – such as dust and scratch removal – surpassing prior transfer standards. The wetgate is ideal for archive owners that require a scanner that’s able to handle a range of problematic and historically-aged film issues.

 

NEW 16mm/ 8mm small gauge film gate: DFT will be demonstrating its new small gauge film gate strategy, showing the optional “16plus” LGA for its Scanity and new Scanity HDR models.

 

NEW software release: DFT’s Scanity HDR, developed in response to the demands of both the post production and the film archive and restoration industries, will be demonstrated with the latest Scanity software release. Scanity HDR offers a host of user friendly features, that serve a variety of film scanning applications, including – but not limited to: film archive scanning for mass digitisation; EDL/conform scanning; low resolution browsing for archive and restoration; short-form commercials; and 4K UHD ready and digital intermediate scanning.

 

Scanity HDR has a number of key advantages over other scanner solutions for the archive and restoration market, namely its touchless patented capstan drive Lens Gate Assembly (LGA) system. This provides both automatic shrinkage compensation and gentle film handling, whilst delivering industry-leading image stability, perfectly designed to liberate data from old films.

 

NEW key features: These include a patented black and white HDR function, a new triple exposure – executed once – in realtime 2K or 4K data ingest. This means the scanner speed remains constant, instead of having to slow down, creating significant time and cost benefits and allowing access to previously unseen details from the high and lowlights of the film faster than ever.
