Spice Shop Installs SCANITY High-Speed Film Scanner

DFT Digital Film Technology, provider of high-end film and digital post production solutions that preserve, manage, and deliver your pictures, has announced that Spice Shop, Bangkok, Thailand, is the first commercial post facility in Southeast Asia to install a SCANITY film scanner.

The SCANITY high-speed 4K/2K film scanner complements Spice Shop’s existing and upgraded data infrastructure and supports the overall non-linear system of solutions that allows Spice Shop to have a smooth and efficient online and offline workflow. SCANITY’s scan-once approach to film scanning allows Spice Shop to generate all required content from one 2K digital negative scan. Whether the content is for offline work using QuickTime or MXF files, or online work that requires uncompressed HD files with low resolution proxies for editing, the high speed and efficiency of SCANITY means Spice Shop only has to handle the film once.

The flexibility of the scan-once approach lets Spice Shop quickly access images across its fibre optic network to easily accommodate last minute editorial changes, re-framing, zooms etc. Since all files are available digitally at 2K high resolution, there is no need to re-scan any frames. This unique workflow saves Spice Shop’s clients time, money, and provides quality improvements throughout the entire post production process.

“Within a few days of installation we have already used SCANITY for both local and international productions and we are highly satisfied with its user and workflow advantages and our clients were astounded at the improvement in picture quality,” states Matthew Szabo, Director of Operations at Spice Shop. “Our infrastructure and services have always been centered on flexibility and speed, and SCANITY stands alone when it comes to speed, quality, and overall system efficiency. In addition, the fact that we also generate a 2K digital negative with SCANITY provides our clients with a sense of security and peace of mind.”
