MOTION PICTURE FILM SCANNING SYSTEM
Features | Specifications
Telecine is Dead!Moore's law in computing performance and storage capacity has made the traditional telecine model obsolete.
Fast. Easy. Flawless. Affordable.
Unlike traditional telecines and real-time scanners, the ScanStation Personal allows minimally-trained operators to convert film directly into digital form at speeds of up to 30 fps. Image and soundtrack are simultaneously converted to multiple formats including QuickTime ProRes (UHD/HD), DPX, or TIFF — all in a single pass without the need for time-consuming post-processing!
With its many options, the ScanStation Personal is designed to be tailored to your individual requirements and budget.
- 5K resolution for 35mm, 2K for 16mm, and 1K for 8mm
- Up to 30 fps simultaneous image scanning and soundtrack reading directly to HD ProRes, DPX or TIFF
- 2D optical pin-registration (no edge-guiding)
- 35mm, 16mm, Super 16mm, 8mm, Super 8mm, 28mm, 17.5mm, and 9.5mm film gate options
- Optical and magnetic soundtrack reader options featuring:
- Simultaneous image scanning and soundtrack reading
- Synchronized image and audio output direct to ProRes (no post-processing and no third-party tools required)
- Read soundtrack at any speed (no requirement to read in real-time)
- Optical: variable area or density soundtracks
- Magnetic: commag or sepmag rolls (no need for separate magnetic soundtrack reading equipment)
- Diffuse light source for optical scratch and fingerprint reduction
Fully motorized auto-focus eliminates manual focus guesswork.
Some competing scanners offer only manual focus which does not allow for optimal focus at 4K resolution.
