Cintel is showcasing brand new products for film scanning and image restoration at NAB 2010, including a new ditto product.


DiTTo evolution is a film scanner that can instantly switch from pin registration to non-pin registration.

It includes film grain management and image stabilisation tools and has been designed to work on a variety of projects from OCN ingest for digital intermediates to dense print for restoration projects.

Cintel business development manager Simon Clark said: “DiTTo evolution can evolve from a simple-to-use, calibrated pin registration scanner for Digital Intermediate use with superb image quality to a multi-format, non-pin registration machine for shrunken and damaged film incorporating a full set of image restoration tools.”

Also on show at NAB is imageMill2, a new image processing platform that adds network capabilities and data file management to the existing imageMill capabilities. 

Grace, the noise and film grain management tool, and Steady, the real time image stabilisation application are also included at NAB.

A new dust/scratch concealment option called Origin is due later in 2010.
