Working at DFT

Digital Film Technology

Film scanning is in our DNA.

Conservation of world film heritage and high-quality postproduction of film requires the very best possible means for digitization. DFT has been leading the development and delivery of these high-end film scanners for decades. Our film scanners are multiple award-winning solutions having achieved international accolades by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences ("Oscar") or the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences ("Emmy").

DFT's Scanity HDR is the gold standard for high-quality film scanning at well-known film studios, such as Warner Brothers, Sony Pictures or Universal Studios, as well as major film archives like Bundesarchiv in Germany, and Library of Congress in the USA.

With the recent OXScan 14K development, DFT has introduced a first to market scanner for digitization in native 8K, up to 14K resolution at never seen before speeds.
