Cintel to showcase DI range including 'diTTo', dataMill and imageMill at IBC 2006

At IBC 2006, Cintel International will be showing part of the DI range of equipment including ‘diTTo’, dataMill and imageMill.
In addition Cintel will be announcing ‘dataMill Creative’, an updated ‘new look’ film scanner designed for those making the transition into the world of digital intermediate which will be launched in 2007.
‘diTTo’, a Super 2K & 4K auto-calibrated data scanning system, has been developed specifically for high quality efficient film scanning.
The versatility of 'diTTo' means it is suited for all applications from high end DI and special effects through to archiving and restoration.
With the data market demanding both quality and speed without being cost prohibitive 'diTTo' represents the next generation data scanning solution. ‘diTTo’ uses cutting edge digital film acquisition technology to ensure the highest image quality and repeatability.
‘diTTo’ utilises a three colour light source, pin registration and a solid state low noise detection device to produce high resolution and repeatable results.
It incorporates 1.2TBytes of local RAID storage and a PC GUI to make the management of the scanning process and the delivery of the image files a straightforward process.
dataMill offers high speed data scanning at the touch of a button; dataMill is a calibrated 2 and 4k data transfer engine capable of speed up to 15 fps. dataMill can be configured to provide real time SD or HD 10 bit log outputs, essentially SD and HD data in a video wrapper, ideal for high speed DI processing.
dataMill can also feature the Millennium II upgrade, allowing it to be switched effortlessly into creative ‘datacine’ mode. dataMill is the only data film scanner capable of scanning 8/S8mm, 16/S16mm, 35/S35mm and 65/70mm film.
Cintel will be launching ‘STEADY’ to the European marketplace.
STEADY is a real time image stabiliser and the latest application for the image processing platform imageMill. Running on the multi-standard, full-bandwidth imageMill platform, STEADY allows real time SD and HD sub-pixel image stabilisation of either film or video acquired images. 2K and 4K data can be stabilised at up to 15fps via HSDL.
imageMill is designed to run a series of image enhancement applications enabling a flexible, modular approach to the differing workflow and environments adopted in post production.
Grace, a grain reduction tool, previously only seen as an internal device inside the DSX film scanner is another application that has been running successfully on imageMill.
Cintel will be found at this year’s IBC in Hall 7 stand 809.
