Dubbs-Eyeframe Purchases First Snell Archangel In UK

A leading digital media and post production facility, Dubbs-Eyeframe, has announced that it has purchased a Snell Archangel Ph.C-HD real-time video restoration system.
This is the first system that has been purchased in the UK and it is currently being used on the restoration of Straw Dogs, the 1971 Dustin Hoffman classic film.
Whilst in beta testing, the Archangel was used extensively in the production of the new Blu-ray HD edition of the acclaimed World War II documentary series, The World at War, for Fremantle Media.
Archangel Ph.C-HD is an advanced SD and HD restoration system with real-time dirt, dust, grain, noise, scratch, instability and flicker removal. Archangel Ph.C-HD unlocks the value of existing assets, ensuring that SD and HD content can be distributed in superb quality. The restoration system also brings significant improvement to users' workflows by maximising the among of restoration that can be completed in real time.
Simon Marbrook, Head of Restoration, Dubbs-Eyeframe, said: "We couldn't have given the Archangel a more thorough test. The material for The World At War demanded the extensive restoration of a huge amount of material, within a tight timeframe, and at the highest quality to meet Blu-ray standards. Archangel's comprehensive toolset provides everything we need for high-end restoration, and the system also allows us to work faster - on this project it reduced the amount of frame-by-frame work we would normally have done by around 60-70%."
Paola Hobson, Product Manager at Snell, said: "AAs a growing number of films, features and drama series are being remastered for sale on DVD and Blu-ray, Archangel Ph.C-HD offers the comprehensive restoration necessary for these productions to meet the high quality expectations of consumers watching on large-screen HDTVs and displays. We were delighted to work with Eyeframe and Dubbs during Archangel's development and we are excited to see it being employed so successfully."
The Archangel Ph.C-HD is an invaluable addition to Dubbs-Eyeframe's arsenal of restoration tools, which also includes the MTI Correct system
