DFT to Unveil Scanity HDR Film Scanner at NAB


LR-Scanity Gate_02Film scanner manufacturer DFT announced that it will launch its new Scanity HDR film scanner at NAB 2014, booth SL15123. Scanity HDR is designed for content owners who require a scanner that’s able to handle a range of problematic and historically-aged film issues. It facilitates the ingest of difficult dense black and white materials at real-time speeds using DFT’s new triple-exposure technology.

Scanity HDR can handle a variety of film scanning applications, including film archive scanning for mass digitization, EDL/conform scanning, low-resolution browsing for archive and restoration, short-form commercials and 4K UHD ready and digital intermediate scanning.

At NAB, DFT will show the Scanity HDR with its new cosmetic black look finish and detailing. The production model will ship later in the summer and will include a number of new features that enable users to obtain greater information on the status of on-going jobs.

LR-SCANITY HDR pic 2Scanity HDR has a number of unique features including its new triple exposure, executed once, in real-time 2K or up to 15 fps in 4K. It can also be fitted with DFT‘s new proprietary wet-gate technology, which fills surface deficiencies with environmentally safe fluid at the point of scan, saving downstream processing time.

Scanity HDR also provides an audio scanning option for ingesting analog optical mono or stereo sound tracks from 16mm or 35mm print and magnetic tracks on 16mm film.
