Cine film transfer (telecine) of 16mm and Super 16mm films is performed with film scanner frame by frame with resolution: 4K, UHD, 2K, HD (Pillarbox)
The film scanner scans in real time (16 – 18 – 24 fps), including the soundtrack, at resolutions up to 2K.
The file obtained from film scanner, when converted to 25 fps, exactly meets the frame rate of the movie, thanks to the ”pulldown” technique. The soundtrack is retained without any change of tone. The duration of the film remains unchanged.
Before transfer, films are inspected in slow motion or on film viewing table, to detect any physical defects. Any repairs are carried out with professional tape film splicer Catozzo, followed by film cleaning.
