In cooperation with film archives and restoration specialists worldwide, ARRI takes film restoration technology to a new level of excellence. The ARRISCAN XT builds on the achievements of the ARRISCAN and ARRILASER, which have set industry standards for digital postproduction. From tried and tested procedures to cutting-edge technologies, the ARRISCAN XT applies a range methods for digitizing and remastering old and often damaged and fragile film.
ARRI’s ALEXA sensor gives the new ARRISCAN XT improved overall image quality, and its scanning speed is up to 65% faster than its predecessor. Badly damaged material can be worked on using a computerized intermitted frame-by-frame film transport system. The diffuse, high-power LED illumination of the ARRISCAN XT reduces the visibility of scratches without producing any heat. The Wet Gate system uses a specially developed liquid to conceal scratches and dust. The ARRISCAN XT’s optics make sharpness-reducing digital resizing of scans unnecessary, even when scanning unusual frame dimensions or shrunken film material.
