Digital Film Technology has developed a prototype version of Smart Motion WetGate, developed for DFT Polar HQ and planned for release later this year. The DFT Polar HQ, which was developed specifically for film archives, scans up to a maximum of 9.3K resolution in native RGB. The scanner has a modular design which can flex and grow as user needs and technology changes over time.
This modular approach, unique in the film scanning world, marks a transformation in the way that scanners will be built in the future.
Since the launch of DFT Polar HQ last September, DFT has already delivered three scanners to an archive customer, where the new scanners are connected to the archives central WetGate System that currently serves three Scanity film scanners in its daily operations.
The new DFT Polar HQ complements DFT’s established range of film scanners, suitable for a wide range of uses.
DFT counts major archives and post-production facilities worldwide among its customers. A partial list of customers includes the British Film Institute, the United States Library of Congress, Fotokem, Spectra Film and Video, the National Film Board of Canada, and the Packard Humanities Institute.
