(London, UK--April 4, 2014) Digital Vision will launch the Golden Eye 4 film scanner for restoration and archive at NAB 2014. The new scanner incorporates many new features that have been requested by users of Golden Eye 3.
Kelvin Bolah, President, Digital Vision, said, "The Golden Eye 4 will become, without doubt, the best scanner in the world. Our customers have been very engaged in the development process, telling us what they like and how we can improve the scanner. We're very proud to launch the Golden Eye 4, which provides many new features including universal optics that can handle any film size, faster scanning and automated processes."
A key new feature of the Golden Eye 4 is universal optics - a single lens, motor driven, multi-axis optical system for precision image sizing, position and focus. Users can scan any film size from 8mm to 70mm without changing the optics.
Other new features for the Golden Eye 4 include:
- New gates and optics
- New tri-linear camera
- Automatic restoration processes using Phoenix restoration software, and distributed automated processing using Loki
- Limitless handling of shrunken film
- Real-time scanning in 2K and up to 11fps in 4K
- Optional wet gate
Studio Hamburg has ordered the first Golden Eye 4 film scanner with 70mm option, to complement their Golden Eye 3.
Christoph Lohfeldt, Studio Hamburg, said, "We chose the Golden Eye because we appreciate the innovative technology and the very good support we receive from Digital Vision. The Golden Eye also offers an excellent price-performance ratio, compared to similar yet far more expensive scanners."
