Blackmagic Design CINTELSCAN4K overview

  • 1Description

The Cintel Film Scanner from Blackmagic Design is a complete solution to real-time film scanning and grading that features precision mechanical film handling components, optics, a high-intensity diffuse light source, and a built in camera. It is designed with an architectural aesthetic and features redesigned digital servos, high intensity diffuse light source and imaging systems, so you get a real-time scanner that scans 35mm film up to 30fps in HD resolution.

The Cintel scanner will scan negative and positive 35mm film into HD quality, and you can unlock the extra resolution from 35mm film natively 4K. The scanner is constructed using aircraft design techniques for a stiff and vibration-free main deck, so you get smooth film handling. The core chassis has been designed as a super rigid structural space frame, which results in a design that’s lighter than an older simplistic heavy plate design. This means the Cintel scanner is light enough to be wall-mounted in your facility, making it part of the environment of your color correction suite.

The Cintel Scanner includes a 35mm film gate, film spools, a set of four cleaning rollers, desk mount feet, and DaVinci Resolve 12 Studio software. Cintel transfers film directly to DaVinci Resolve which gives you the power to edit film rolls back together, scans to be color-graded, reframed, noise-reduced, and audio-extracted. Using DaVinci Resolve to operate the scanner means you have much more creative control than a simple telecine because DaVinci Resolve has many more features than is possible to do in hardware.

The Cintel film scanner is 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.
Realtime Scanning
The real time 4K film scanner uses 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 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 30m Thunderbolt cables to connect to your grading computer.
Cintel Quality
The Cintel film scanner features a bright spherical RGB LED illumination and an extremely sensitive imaging sensor. That means you get high-quality scans that are super sharp even when running at full real-time speed. The spherical RGB LED illumination ensures your film is never exposed to unnecessary thermal stress and color fading effects of traditional scanner lamps. In addition, Cintel's patented diffusing sphere technology reduces the visibility of dust and scratches.
Maintenance Free Connections
The Cintel film scanner is easy to set up and configure thanks to its Thunderbolt 2 interface. Simply connect the scanner to your Mac OS X workstation, install the software, and start scanning. That means you don't need a dedicated engineer to operate and support the scanner. It has been designed to move it between machines or even plug into laptop computers, so you can scan your film directly into the computer you are going to use the content on. The HDMI output supports Ultra HD televisions for perfectly accurate focusing and film alignment using a local monitor. The HDMI output can even be converted into SDI video using Blackmagic Mini Converter HDMI to SDI 4K (sold separately), suitable for connecting into your system for client monitoring.
Easy Control
You get scanner control software for your Mac that includes everything you need to transfer and capture films to Ultra HD or HD files. Scanned files can also be opened with DaVinci Resolve for further color, restoration, and mastering work.
Includes DaVinci Resolve
The Cintel film scanner includes a full copy of DaVinci Resolve Studio software with full color correction features included.
