Maker of High Quality Digital Color Film Recorders
|There is a rapid increase in the number of film scenes for which a
computer is used for either animation or modification. In their desire to
reach ever larger audiences, more and more film directors have come
to rely on digital tricks to satisfy the public’s need for spectacular
cinematic effects. But before these digital re-workings of the images
can reach the public, they first have to be exposed in a film format which can be projected in cinemas.
The PCR Cine digital film recorder can be used to expose all the commonly used 35mm cinema film formats. The film sequences can be in the TIFF, Targa, Cineon or FlashPix formats or as a video file. The exposure of an image with 2K resolution can be done in a maximum of 30 seconds. The special Cine-camera module transports the film with absolute precision (Pin-registration). Since the PCR Cine is compatible with Windows, Apple or Unix computers, it can be used without difficulty in any existing studio.
It often happens that the transfer from a digital to an analog medium has negative consequences for the color and contrast quality of the film sequence. The PCR Cine deals with these unfortunate side-effects in two ways: First of all, the exposure is made with a CRT of extremely high quality which reproduces digital image data much more precisely than comparable technologies. But in addition, the C4Quality ("Crystal Clear Color Calibration”) calibration process ensures an optimum harmonization between the film recorder and the production laboratory where the copy is being produced. It is only this combination of two state-of-the-art technologies which makes it possible to reproduce images which are absolutely faithful to the originals and which also have extremely precise color tonalities while maintaining even the subtlest of color gradations. In addition, the scope of contrast which can be achieved enables the reproduction of even very darkly lit scenes.
CCG LUT Software is used to calibrate the
gray scale of each film type available.
