Cintel showcases world’s fastest image restoration tool ‘ORIGIN’ at NAB 2011
Newsfaster version of the diTTo evolution 2K 4K film scannerLast Updated: March 3, 2011 6:23 pm GMT
(Ware, Herts--March 3, 2011) Cintel International will use the NAB exhibition to show the first working version of the new ORIGIN data image restoration tool on Stand SL1716.
imageMill2 ORIGIN is the world’s fastest data image restoration tool, processing 2K and HD DPX files faster than real time. ORIGIN can fix dust, scratches and other image defects faster than any other system and can run simultaneously with GRACE, the noise and film grain management tool and STEADY, the real time image stabilisation application.
Simon Carter, Sales Director, Cintel, said, “imageMill2 already addresses the industry’s need for fast and simple-to-use Noise and Grain management tools for both data-centric Digital Intermediate applications and Restoration projects. ORIGIN can now fix a lot of image defects in real time, which is amazing considering many software-only systems can take up to a minute per frame. With speeds in excess of 31fps 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.”
Cintel will also be demonstrating a new faster version of the diTTo evolution film scanner with 2K speeds at up to 11fps and 4K at up to 7.5fps. diTTo evolution is the first film scanner to be instantly switchable from pin registration to non-pin registration and also the first to include film grain management and image stabilisation tools. It is the ideal film scanner for all applications and stock 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 also provides a fast shuttle capability, a non-pin registration mode for archive scanning and the imageMill2 processing tools and a 3.3D density range.
Cintel International has been providing film scanning products and post production solutions to the world for over 80 years and has constantly evolved and adapted to the requirements of the broadcast, post production and archive market places. http://www.cintel.co.uk
