FILM TRANSFER EXAMPLES



ARCHIVAL-GRADE 2K HD FILM SCANNING:

This is a sample of 16mm film (from 1958) scanned into 2K HD - the art of the possible!



STANDARD GRADE vs. ARCHIVAL-GRADE FILM SCANNING:

Our Standard Grade process provides for a RAW transfer of the film (no post capture digital clean up) to a Standard Definition digital file. Over time and depending on how they were stored film will inevitably fade, colours run and some form of dirt/dust/mold will be present - our Archival Grade process provides for a comprehensive “digital clean up” of the captured film footage providing for enhancements to colour, contrast, light, and grain.



STANDARD DEFINITION (SD) vs. HIGH DEFINITION 2K (HD) FILM SCANNING:

There is so much information in a film frame that we do have the option to scan that frame into a SD, HD or UHD digital file. Scanning into 2K HD or UHD (4K) naturally provides a much higher level of detail (resolution) ideally suited for large screens.



ARCHIVAL-GRADE 2K & 4K FILM SCANNING using WETGATE + ENHANCED DIGITAL IMAGE PROCESSING:

Scanning film into 2K or 4K digital files using the wetgate feature and enhanced digital image processing is both extremely time consuming (ie., a single 20 minute reel takes 2 hours to scan into digital) and requires enormous computing power but the final results speak for itself. When a scratch or vertical line in the film emulsion is filled with fluid, light will travel through the film with less refraction. This results in less visibility of damaged parts of the film. We use standard film cleaner, Isopropanol 99.9%.
The high percentage of alcohol ensures that the fluid will evaporate before it winds up on the reel again. Enhanced digital image processing provides for dirt removal, stabilization, sharpening, de-graining.
