Film laboratory Haghefilm Digitaal, a prominent service provider in
the field of cinematographic heritage preservation, receives films from
the early days of cinema from all over the world. The company is known
for its knowledge of obsolete film formats and the skills and motivation
of its employees who often perform little wonders so that images that
were thought to be lost still can be retained. Very often the films that
are sent to Haghefilm Digitaal are in very bad shape and require
serious attention from the Haghefilm Digitaal restoration specialists
before they can either be printed to nowadays polyester-base film stock,
if possible, or digitized.
The Scanity film scanner that was installed late last year, and
extended with the wet gate option early this year, has already proven
its value. Thanks to this equipment some rare images dating from the
beginning of the 20th century could be scanned at the highest possible
quality and thus be saved and made accessible again for use today and in
the future. With the arrival of the Scanity, the Haghefilm Digital
toolbox has been expanded with an installation that allows the company
to help film archives preserve films from the past at the highest
possible quality level today.
