Scanity is a versatile, high speed, film scanning solution, suitable for dailies, feature film mastering, EDL/conform scanning, low resolution browsing, archive and restoration, short-form commercials, as well as digital intermediate scanning.
Scanity HDR has been developed specifically for archive and restoration facilities to manage a range of difficult and historically-aged film issues. It facilitates the ingest of difficult dense black and white materials at real-time speeds using a unique triple-exposure technology – which means that instead of slowing down, the speed remains constant, creating significant time and cost benefits and allowing access to previously unseen details from the high and lowlights of the film at extraordinary speeds.
DFT’s new state-of-the-art film scanner Scanity HDR excels in the uncompromising ability to handle a range of difficult and historically-aged film issues.
Scanity HDR uses highly efficient LED (RGB, IR) light sources and hence low temperature, dedicated hardware processors and fewer, less expensive third-party components. This lowers initial costs as well as on-going operational expenses.
Scanity HDR is able to solve a number of key issues that are prevalent when scanning damaged and aged film stock.

Scanity HDR provides an audio scanning option facilitating the ingest of analogue optical mono or stereo sound tracks from 16mm or 35 mm print and magnetic tracks on 16 mm film. This feature eliminates additional and separate image and audio scanning passes. The audio option uses components from SONDOR and is mounted into Scanity HDR before the lens gate
The capstan – driven continuous film transport offers real-time audio scanning in conjunction with real-time 2K film scanning. The soundtrack is picked up by audio heads, converted into
WAV files on the Scanity HDR workstation and stored with the images.
This means that both the audio and image files are available for further processing or playout via third-party software systems.
