JCA has begun a £1m investment programme that will see new kit, staff and services added to its film restoration capabilities

The spend will include the purchase of an Arriscan wet gate 16mm scanning machines for high speed scanning in 2k and follows a 40% increase in staffing levels within the department.

JCA managing director Nick Pannaman said: “We have had excellent feedback from new and existing clients about our current restoration service and are responding to increased demand with this investment. JCA’s business is now so data centric and we are able to complete any media project that needs to move into a digital workflow.”

The Arriscan will allow for light and colour correction, grading and management of fragile film.

JCA provides media management services to the digital, TV and film sectors. Recent feature film credits include How to Lose Friends and Alienate People and Street Dance 3D (pictured).
