(Las Vegas--April 13, 2010) Cintel International will be showcasing brand new products for film scanning and image restoration at NAB 2010 on Booth SL2816.
Cintel Sales Director Simon Carter said, “At NAB 2010 we are very excited to be presenting new workflows for film scanning and image restoration. diTTo evolution is the first film scanner to be instantly switchable from pin registration to non-pin registration and also the first film scanner to include film grain management and image stabilisation tools. It is the ideal film scanner for all applications & stocks types; from OCN ingest for digital intermediates, to dense print for restoration projects.”
diTTo evolution offers a modular and upgradeable solution to film scanning. Building on the successful elements of the renowned diTTo scanner, including unequalled image performance, easy to use interface and the famous D/SCO - Dust/Scratch Concealment option, diTTo evolution additionally provides a fast shuttle capability, a non-pin registration mode for archive scanning, imageMill2 processing tools and a 3.2D density range.
Simon Clark, Cintel’s Business Development Manager, commented, “diTTo evolution offers solutions to all film scanning needs. It can evolve from a simple-to-use, calibrated pin registration scanner for Digital Intermediate use with superb image quality to a multi-format, non-pin registration machine for shrunken and damaged film incorporating a full set of image restoration tools.”
imageMill2 is a new image processing platform adding network capabilities and data file management to the existing imageMill capabilities. GRACE the noise and film grain management tool and STEADY, the real time image stabilisation application will be on show at NAB and a new Dust/Scratch Concealment option called ORIGIN is due later in 2010.
Simon Carter remarked, “imageMill2 will address the industry’s need for a fast yet simple-to-use Noise and Grain management tool for both data-centric Digital Intermediate applications and Restoration projects within one product. With speeds in excess of 25fps for 2K and HD files, the performance of imageMIll2 is unequalled. We are currently processing 4K files at 10fps and can also deal with SD files at twice real time. With imageMIll2 you can truly ‘eliminate the wait’.
Cintel will also be demonstrating a new Millennium dataMill workflow utilising the Yoyo system from Yoyotta. Film will be scanned to HD data in real time with the Yoyo system controlling both the film scanner and an imageMill processing engine. This workflow offers a very simple yet powerful film scanning workflow with additional data management tools provided by the Yoyo system.
