LAS VEGAS - Imagica Corp., specialists in film scanning technology, have introduced new digital intermediate solutions at NAB, and have entered into a strategic partnership with DI software developer Assimilate. Among Imagica's (www.imagica-la.com) innovations are: an upgraded Imager XE digital film scanner which can scan pin-registered film at 1.3 sec./frame in 2K and at 2.5 sec./frame in 4K; the Galette color management system, allowing users to view accurate color when projecting digital film data to a screen; and Cinecure, a "paint type" dust- and scratch-removal system.
Imagica's partnership with Assimilate (www.assimilateinc.com) involves providing Imagica's Galette and Cinecure via Assimilate's new Scratch Data-Centric Workflow solution. Scratch will also set up the data structures and XML programming interface for Imagica's pin-registered Imager XE scanners.
