rtv slovenia, installs dft’s scanity

Darmstadt – December 19, 2014

Slovenia’s national public broadcasting organisation, Radio-Television Slovenia, has recently installed a high-end film scanner from dft.

As a public broadcasting service, RTV is responsible not only for the creation and broadcasting of national TV and radio programmes, but their archiving as well.

The RTV Archives and Documentation Service contains recordings of radio and television programmes dating back to 1928. Visual holdings comprise 90,000 video tapes and 20,000,000 meters of film – in addition to thousands of photos and other related documentation.

In meeting a public responsibility for preserving and archiving Slovenian cultural heritage, RTV Slovenia have embarked on a major project to digitally restore many films for the archive. Having researched the market, they chose dft’s Scanity HDR 2K film scanner as the fastest and more technically accomplished in the market.

Matjaž Fajdiga, Head of TV Engineering from RTV Slovenia commented: “We have worked with dft technology for many years and have been very impressed with the technology they develop. This new scanner is the perfect solution for us, as we have many thousands of film that need to be archived. With the Scanity HDR we are able to work faster, by scanning and archiving materials at the same time. We chose the HDR 2K scanner because most of our films in stocks are 16mm and S16mm”

Simon Carter, Director for dft added: “dft is delighted that RTV Slovenia have chosen Scanity for its film archive – Scanity HDR has been specifically designed to manage the accurate digitisation of aged and treasured materials for future generations to appreciate.”
