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.”
