Kinetta Archival Film Scanner
5K realtime scanning on this custom built machine. It uses a Rank MarkIII transport system. All optics are rated well past the sensing resolution of 5K. The image sensor is the only 5K 30fps sensor availible and is used by other scanner manufacturers in the idustry. Image processing was created using todays fastets GPUs for realtime correction at 5K resolutions.
Formats include 35mm & 16mm.
