The new complete tool for the Restoration and Archival Process developed for any old, shrunken, brittle or warped film.
Horizontal equipment layout for an easy and comfortable use together with all necessary tools for a direct and immediate intervention on the film in case of repairing / restoration.
Smooth, gentle and precise transport is digitally driven, not pin registered for a perfect passage and steadiness even with very old, damaged, brittle and shrunken film.
Variable size rollers for an easy switch between the various usable film formats (35 and 16mm and optionally the 8mm, S8, 9.5Pathé plus the new 17.5mm).
White LED stroboscopic system gives a sharp and crisp image, keeps the light color stable over its long life.
Special light diffuser works as a powerful, effective scratch-remover, masking a great number of physical defects onto the film base, just as a wet print system would do, so making the digital post-production cleaning easier and cheaper.
Exclusive combination of a special dry gate, a constantly controlled tension and a high focal depth to centre focus even with extremely warped film.
Adaptability to different levels of ageing film (shrinkage and fragility) thanks to an adjustable sprocket system and a customisable tension control that lets you pass through, virtually, any kind of film disregarding its condition.
Large color touch screen gives instant access to all necessary information on the system status and film position.
A white LED backlight source over the surface gives instant and practical lighting of the film when manual access/operation is required.
New rolling analog sound reader head keep flat all curly and shrunken films (for 35mm and 16mm). This allows an excellent reproduction of sound even from film in very poor condition.
A PTR set cleans the film before the acquisition while the diffused Led-Light ensures an optical concealment of any remaining dust, debris, lint and scratches.
Full screen vision for perfect and clear visual access to the film colour and any physical defects of the media (IR vision is available as an option).
Complete and full control of image parameters for a perfect adaptation to the film color space.
Even if the D-Archiver is a very flexible device, some optionals are sometimes required.
