DFT has unveiled new WetGate technology for its latest Scanity HDR film scanner. The patented technology is designed specifically for DFT’s Scanity HDR model providing a real-time organic solution for the ingest and management of difficult to solve historical film transfer issues – such as dust and scratch removal – surpassing prior transfer standards. The company says the WetGate is ideal for archive owners who need a scanner that’s able to handle a range of problematic and historically aged film issues.
Simon Carter, DFT sales director, said, “We’ve responded to the needs of the archiving market by evolving our technology to address its requirements, first with the Scanity HDR, and now by including our WetGate technology. By enabling many of the issues associated with historically-aged film to be addressed at the scanning stage, our customers have less work to do downstream, saving valuable time and money.”
The new WetGate will be exhibited at the National Association of Broadcasters convention next month in Las Vegas.
Also on view at NAB 2016 will be DFT’s Scanity HDR, which was developed in response to the demands of the film market. It will be demonstrated with the latest Scanity software release. Scanity HDR now offers a host of new user friendly features, that serve a variety of film scanning applications, including – but not limited to: film archive scanning for mass digitization; EDL/conform scanning; low resolution browsing for archive and restoration; short-form commercials; and 4K UHD ready and digital intermediate scanning.
