Volker Massmann, Markus Hasenzahl and Andreas Loew will each receive a Scientific and Engineering Award for the development of the Spirit 4K/2K film scanner. Christian Baeker and Frank Billasch will each receive a Technical Achievement Award for their contributions to the LUTher color space converter. Dr. Klaus Anderle was involved in the development of both products and will receive both awards.

The Spirit 4K/2K is a high speed, high precision film scanner that scans images in 4K resolution. DFT has installed more than 450 systems worldwide. The LUTher color space converter is a calibration tool used in film production that adapts the color space between different monitors and digital/film projectors. This ensures the correct color representation is independent from the viewing device.
