(June 26, 2008) On July 31st, Cinnafilm, an emerging force in advanced film simulation technology, will announce the delivery of its highly anticipated Cinnafilm™ HD1 real-time film simulator into the marketplace.
Cinnafilm HD1 is the industry’s first film simulation solution that delivers results instantaneously—no rendering or specialized expertise required—at a fraction of the cost of time-consuming and expensive offline rendering options. This leap in technology signals a major breakthrough in film simulation effects and frame-rate conversion for any source digital video and promises to create an affordable new workflow paradigm for creative professionals working in the film, broadcast, post production, industrial video and education markets.
In honor of the Cinnafilm HD1 shipping milestone, the company is staging demonstrations and special events throughout Los Angeles from August 4th to August 14th (in conjunction with the SIGGRAPH 2008 convention) where industry professionals and members of the press can meet Lance Maurer, Cinnafilm president and CEO, and see the technology in action.

Cinnafilm’s groundbreaking, industry-first solution is the result of over four years of research dedicated to harnessing the power of modern graphics cards. At the NAB convention this past April, Cinnafilm showcased early versions of the Cinnafilm HD1 technology that industry experts and press are calling “impressive” and stating “[Cinnafilm HD1] could be revolutionary.”
We hope you can join Cinnafilm to get better acquainted with their HD1 technology, and see why industry veterans like Rick Clemente, president of Production Central ABQ (www.productioncentralabq.com
), an award-winning film professional, and 2nd Unit Director of Photography on the original Star Wars, is looking forward to adopting the HD1 solution into his studio, "…I've been involved with cutting edge film technology for over thirty years, and this [Cinnafilm HD1] is a pioneering move.”
