IBC: Cintel shows ImageMill2 interface options

AMSTERDAM — UK-based Cintel International (www.cintel.co.uk), the maker of film scanning solutions, launched two new user interface options for its ImageMill2 data enhancement and restoration system at IBC. The company is also showing a number of upgrades to its Ditto Evolution 2K/4K film scanner.

ImageMill2 is capable of faster-than-realtime 2K DPX file image processing and is available as a workstation with 4TB of local RAID storage, or as a plug-in PCI card.  

Flow is the new user interface, and includes a multi-format and multi-resolution project timeline; project management and library functions; 3D-LUT management; waveform, histogram and vectorscope monitoring; and timecode/edgecode burn-in. Flow supports Tangent Devices control surfaces and formats that include DPX, Arri RAW and Red R3D in any resolution, from SD to 4K.

The Colourflow interface option includes all of the features found in Flow, plus primary color correction, zoom, pan, rotate scan effects, blanking tools, automatic scene detection, dynamic events and EDL export.

The Ditto Evolution 2K/4K film scanner receives a new camera option that allows for over-sampled 4K data scans. The system is also receiving film transport modifications involving a capstan drive, which will increase the level of shrunken and damaged film the scanner can accommodate.
