Telecine is Dead! Moore's law in computing performance and storage capacity has made the traditional telecine model obsolete.
8mm to 70mm and everything in between
The ScanStation can now be configured to include only the options you need, making pricing flexible to your budget. And you can add options later as needed. Unlike traditional telecines and real-time scanners, the ScanStation allows minimally-trained operators to convert film directly into digital form at unmatched resolution and speeds of up to 60 fps. Simultaneous image scanning and soundtrack reading with output to multiple formats including UHD/HD ProRes, DPX, or TIFF — all in a single pass!
Film Gauge Versatility (video) 8mm, Super 8mm, 9.5mm, 16mm, Super 16mm, 17.5mm, 28mm, 35mm, and 65/70mm (5-perf)
1.2K to 5K Resolution
Single pass color and B&W High Dynamic Range (HDR) scanning for the best capture of print film shadow detail
On-The-Fly Color and Dye-Fade Correction
Magnetic Soundtrack Reader - commag or sepmag rolls (no need for separate magnetic soundtrack reading equipment)
Fully motorized auto-focus eliminates manual focus guesswork.
Some competing scanners offer only manual focus which does not allow for optimal focus at 4K resolution.
Built-in splicing table with two light boxes
Splice broken film without removing it from scanner
Automatic Failed Splice RecoveryTM (U.S. Patent No. 8,681,213) This patented feature eliminates the need to pre-inspect film. After operator repairs splice, ScanStation automatically finds proper frame and continues. Video and sound remain synchronized.
