November 15, 2017

Kodak and Prasad Corporation, owners of dft (Digital Film Technology), announce a joint strategic initiative to provide digitization and archiving services for the UK market. This announcement will see the installation of a Scanity HDR with full WetGate™ functionality at KODAK Digital Services London.

The new facility, operated by KODAK Digital Services London, includes a state-of-the-art 4K Scanity HDR film scanner with full Wetgate functionality, which is the first of its kind to be available in the UK. Manufactured in Germany by Digital Film Technology (dft), a subsidiary of Prasad, the new scanner provides complete scanning solutions for Dailies, Mastering, and Archive film in a range of resolutions from 0.5K to 4K. The scanner employs unique triple exposure technology to facilitate constant scanning speeds, which dramatically improves time and cost barriers when scanning high density or historically-aged film content and has been designed to manage even the most delicate film including notched or damaged edges, warped and even severely shrunken film.
