Blackmagic Cintel Scanner 2 Real time 16mm & 35mm HDR Film Scanner

No other company in the world has more experience at scanning film than Cintel, and now that knowledge has been combined with cutting edge technology to produce the new Blackmagic Cintel Scanner 2! The new Cintel scanner has been designed with an architectural aesthetic and it’s so thin it can even be wall mounted!

Blackmagic Cintel Scanner 2 features totally redesigned digital servos, high intensity diffuse light source and imaging systems, so you get a real time scanner that scans 35mm and 16mm film up to 30fps in Ultra HD resolution! Now you can use film for post production or unlock millions of hours of film based content for scanning to Ultra HD masters for a new future world of exciting Ultra HD distribution!

Convert Existing Film to Ultra HD

With consumers purchasing large Ultra HD televisions in massive quantities right now, the demand for great Ultra HD content has never been greater and will become a boom market in the next few years. Ultra HD is incredible quality and there are millions of hours of Ultra HD content that’s been generated over the last 100 years locked up in 35mm film that is stored in vaults worldwide!

The new Blackmagic Cintel Scanner 2 will scan negative and positive 35mm film into amazing quality Ultra HD and you can unlock the extra resolution from 35mm film that no one has been able to see until now! 35mm film is natively 4K so the extra quality is already in the film. There is no easier way to generate Ultra HD feature films and television programming for customers to view on their new large screen televisions!

Latest Technology

The new Blackmagic Cintel Scanner 2 is an innovation in technology. Film traditionally has been a mechanical technology and film products have suffered from poor quality electronics that required experienced engineers to keep them working. The Cintel scanner has been designed with the latest Blackmagic Design image processing technology and features a Thunderbolt 2 connection so you can connect it to your Mac and scan the film directly into your color correction system.

That makes setup and use extremely fast plus eliminates slow file copying after scanning. Because Cintel is a Mac OS X Thunderbolt 2 peripheral, you get easy to install software updates that add new features and it also means you can even upgrade your computer whenever you need!

Realtime Scanning

The Blackmagic Cintel Scanner 2 is the world’s first real time 4K film scanner to use Thunderbolt 2, making it super easy to set up and install. The new diffuse high intensity light source means the Cintel scanner runs at a smooth real time speed keeping film handling gentle and transfers super fast. The Thunderbolt 2 connection features a massive 20 Gb/s speed so you can transfer all this data direct into your computer without quality limitations.

You can even change computers simply by unplugging the single Thunderbolt cable. If you’re wall mounting then you can use the longer 30 meter Thunderbolt cables to connect to your grading computer even when hiding the cabling in the wall. With the Cintel scanner, you get the high resolution of a film scanner with the real time use of a traditional telecine!

Audio and KeyKode Reader

The optional Audio and KeyKode Reader lets you capture high quality audio along with KeyKode information from the film. The reader features a magnetic audio head or deep red LED illumination with advanced optics, electro formed slits, and precision mechanical adjustments for azimuth, zenith and yaw to give you the best possible audio capture with incredible high frequency response.

The reader also features a precision capstan and encoder that allows for automatic correction of wow and flutter, allowing you to accurately capture audio, even when the scanner speed changes! The KeyKode Reader provides you with unique identification numbers for each film frame so they can be easily correlated with the corresponding video timecode. Installation is easy and all you need to do is bolt the reader onto the front of the chassis and it will automatically be detected.
