Rhythm & Hues purchases Northlight scanner

FilmLight has announced that Rhythm & Hues, a leading developer and producer of computer generated imagery for entertainment and advertising, has purchased a Northlight high-quality digital film mastering scanner to handle the increased demand for its visual effects services.
Rhythm & Hues selected the Northlight after comparing several options, based on the combination of its high-quality colour fidelity, superior data handling, low noise and speed. The Northlight will replace an existing in-house-developed film scanner at Rhythm & Hues’ West Los Angeles studio.
FilmLight Commercial Director, Peter Stothart, said: “Rhythm & Hues is one of the industry’s most highly regarded visual effects studios, widely recognized for their work on feature films, commercials and theme parks. We’re pleased to enable them to take advantage of the latest developments in film scanning technology and welcome them as the owners of the 21st Northlight system.”
Northlight is a high quality, pin-registered digital film mastering scanner.
Supporting 35mm, 65mm and 16mm formats, Northlight has been designed for the digital mastering of entire feature films, for current release and back catalogue preservation.
