TheCintel Film Scanner with 35mm Gate from Blackmagic Design has been designed with an architectural aesthetic and it’s so thin it can even be wall mounted! It features totally redesigned digital servos, high intensity diffuse light source and imaging systems, so you get a real time scanner that scans 35mm and 16mm film up to 30fps in Ultra HD resolution! Now you can use film for post production or unlock millions of hours of film based content for scanning to Ultra HD masters for a new future world of exciting Ultra HD distribution!
Real time film scanner for transferring 35mm and 16mm film at up to 30 frames per second via Thunderbolt 2 at full Ultra HD resolution. Cintel Film Scanner also includes DaVinci Resolve Software.
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 Creative Advantage of Film
Nothing looks more like film than film does! The look of well shot 35mm film is unmistakable and it’s what all digital cinema cameras strive to emulate. When you shoot on film, you are not locked into a single look because you can pick a range of film stocks that totally alter how your images will look. Even today, with the most amazing digital cinema cameras available, some of Hollywood’s biggest filmmakers still prefer to shoot on 35mm film, not only because of it’s sharpness, dynamic range, and colorimetry, but mostly for that classic film creative style. Unfortunately in the past the cost of post production involving film was high. Now the new Cintel film scanner eliminates this high cost because it’s a complete low maintenance design you can install and operate yourself!

Now you can purchase your own scanner so you don’t have to transport precious film out of house to be transferred.
