KODAK Panchromatic Sound Recording Film 2374 is a high contrast, panchromatic black-and-white film designed for recording variable-area sound track negatives with a tungsten light source, and/or producing digital sound track negatives. Analog negatives made from this film produce an excellent silver, high magenta and cyan-only soundtracks. It is optimized to produce all three types of digital soundtracks negatives: DTS (Digital Theater Systems), DOLBY Digital, and SONY SDDS (SONY Dynamic Digital Sound).
A process-surviving antistat incorporated in the gray ESTAR base reduces the propensity for dirt and static marks in printing. This, and scratch resistant base and emulsion surface coatings, improve the film's durability offering opportunities for increased yields in labs. Enhanced acutance and sharpness of the film yields excellent signal to noise performance, high frequency response and sound quality in both digital and analog tracks.
