No other company in the world has more experience at scanning film than Cintel, and now that knowledge has been combined with cutting edge technology to produce the new Blackmagic Cintel film scanner! The new Cintel scanner has been designed with an architectural aesthetic and it’s so thin it can even be wall mounted! It features totally redesigned digital servos, high intensity diffuse light source and imaging systems, so you get a real time scanner that scans 35mm and 16mm film up to 30fps in Ultra HD resolution! Now you can use film for post production or unlock millions of hours of film based content for scanning to Ultra HD masters for a new future world of exciting Ultra HD distribution!
Convert Existing Film to Ultra HD
With consumers purchasing large Ultra HD televisions in massive quantities right now, the demand for great Ultra HD content has never been greater and will become a boom market in the next few years. Ultra HD is incredible quality and there are millions of hours of Ultra HD content that’s been generated over the last 100 years locked up in 35mm film that is stored in vaults worldwide! The new Cintel scanner will scan negative and positive 35mm film into amazing quality Ultra HD and you can unlock the extra resolution from 35mm film that no one has been able to see until now! 35mm film is natively 4K so the extra quality is already in the film. There is no easier way to generate Ultra HD feature films and television programming for customers to view on their new large screen televisions!
Designed to hang beautifully on your wall, the Cintel film scanner is constructed using aircraft design techniques for a stiff and vibration free main deck so you get smooth film handling. The core chassis has been designed as a super rigid structural space frame, which results in a design that’s dramatically lighter than an older simplistic heavy plate design. This means the Cintel scanner is light enough to be wall mounted in your facility, making it part of the environment of your color correction suite. Being super thin and wall mounted, it’s out of the way until you need to use it, and then it springs to life and performs! Whether wall or desk mounted the innovative design includes sliding doors, built in cleaning rollers and new digital servos to keep your film clean and ensures handling of valuable negative remains gentle.
Renowned Cintel Quality
The Cintel Film Scanner features a super bright spherical RGB LED illumination and an extremely sensitive imaging sensor. That means you get high quality scans that are super sharp even when running at full real time speed. The spherical RGB LED illumination ensures your priceless film is never exposed to unnecessary thermal stress and color fading effects of traditional scanner lamps. In addition, Cintel’s patented diffusing sphere technology reduces the visibility of dust and scratches, giving you stunningly beautiful film scans every time. If you’re looking for super stable scanning then the optional pin registration gate means you can run non real time frame by frame scanning and get even tighter stability than possible when running real time!
Fast Easy Control
Using the Cintel film scanner is easy and intuitive. You get scanner control software for your Mac that includes everything you need to transfer and capture films to Ultra HD or HD files. Scanned files can also be opened with DaVinci Resolve for further color, restoration and mastering work.
Includes DaVinci Resolve
In the past when film was the main way to get high quality images for post production, Cintel telecine’s and DaVinci color correction was the standard combination used worldwide! Now these two wonderful brands are back together again because the Cintel film scanner includes a full copy of DaVinci Resolve software! Now you get full color correction features included so you can take advantage of the Cintel scanner’s amazing image quality. You will never be limited creatively by your equipment because you’ll have incredible film looks combined with the same powerful color correction toolset used by the world’s leading cinematographers!
The Cintel film scanner will include everything for a computer solution to film scanning and grading. You get the Cintel scanner with powerful built in Image Mill stabilization and grain reduction, a single 35mm film gate (16mm purchased separately), two film spools, a set of four cleaning rollers, Davinci Resolve software and desk mount feet included. Unlike many film products, with Blackmagic Design you can be assured there are no fees for installation, no software update fees, no ongoing license fees and no fees if you ever should want to sell your Cintel scanner or, if you want to buy a second hand one in the future there are absolutely no transfer fees!
