Light Illusion has developed a new application for its MatchLight Image Matching System (IMS).

The colour-management software and hardware developer said it would guarantee the viability of long-term film-based archiving of digital images.

It said: “With the explosion in digital cinematography capture, and the associated difficulty in providing guaranteed long-term archiving of the images, Light Illusion was asked by a number of clients to look at possible long-term archive solutions based on the use of standard film stocks.”
