DSX & C-Reality
Data-cine designed specifically for commercial post production, resolution independent film mastering and restoration projects.
DSX is an exciting, data-cine, designed specifically for commercial post production, resolution independent film mastering and restoration projects.
Developed to keep you at the forefront of your industry, the DSX film scanner uses cutting edge technology to ensure the highest possible quality image - regardless of film type or condition.
Taking all the best features from Cintel's C-Reality film scanner, as well as adding more, DSX provides a quantum leap in film scanning.
Using the unique 'OLIVER' system for dust and scratch removal, the effect of surface damage on film is dramatically reduced - and often totally removed - to provide transfers and masters which are scrupulously clean.
DSX film scanners produce 4K film quality images which are sharp, steady, accurate and very quiet. And with state of the art colour vector processing, colour tones are precisely repeatable, as well as providing a distinctive, memorable and individual 'film' look.
The C-Reality film scanner is extremely versatile, and can be used in a range of applications - including short form commercial post production, long form feature film and DVD mastering, television episodics and documentaries, HDTV film mastering, film effects and creative colour matching, as well as in the specialist fields of film archive and restoration.
Designed for longevity, C-Reality can scan film at all resolutions and in all formats. In fact, C-Reality was the first data-cine to make 4K a practical and straightforward operation, with speeds ten times those of film resolution scanners.
C-Reality film scanners are used in many facilities world-wide and our customer base includes established names in the world's major film production regions including Hollywood, London, Paris, Madrid and Mumbai.
Dust and Scratch Removal Technology
Enhance your C-Reality film scanner with dust and scratch removal technology. The unique OLIVER system for dust and scratch removal, reduces the effects of dirt, scratches and other surface damage on film, regardless of film type, format or resolution. Developed for DSX and available as an option for all C-Reality data-cines, dirt and scratches are quickly and easily removed from the film image during the scanning process to provide transfers and masters which are scrupulously clean. The Oliver system works seemlessly with your scanner without compromising its operation in any way. It does not use chemicals and has no on-going running costs.
Grain reduction technology
GRACE is a grain reduction system, developed specifically for C-Reality and DSX film scanners. Designed to operate at the scanner front end, Grace works in all resolutions, and is film gauge and image format independent. Fully programmable and using 14bit RGB processing, Grace provides grain reduction without the need for recursive filtering and additional frame stores which cause associated delays and artefacts. As Grace is frame by frame independent, film grain reduction is seamless over scene boundaries, and moving images do not smear or ghost.
