Blackmagic Design has released the Cintel Scanner G3 HDR , which features a completely redesigned light source allowing for real-time HDR film scanning in Ultra HD.

The new high intensity LED grid array light source allows customers to get even better quality images from scanned film at much higher film scanning speeds, said the company.

The new model retains features from the original Cintel Scanners, such as digital servos, gentle capstan drives, advanced colour science, 35mm and 16mm film support.

The high-intensity light source in Cintel Scanner G3 HDR is six times more powerful than previous versions, said Blackmagic.

The RGB LED grid array illumination source has a square array of 576 high power LEDs arranged into a grid pattern, which are focused onto film using a new light cylinder. This design means that more than twice the silicon area for generating light is available, resulting in more light being directed at the film.

Each illumination flash includes tens of kilowatts to scan a single frame of film, added Blackmagic, meaning HDR scanning is now up to three times faster at full real-time speed of 30 frames per second in Ultra HD. The Cintel Scanner G3 HDR also features improved colour science and up to an additional 3.5 stops of HDR range.

We've been demonstrating this new light source technology over this past year and we are now very excited to be able to include it in our newest Cintel Scanner G3 HDR model, said Grant Petty, Blackmagic Design CEO. The new Cintel Scanner G3 HDR has all the great features of our previous model, plus now it includes an all-new high-intensity light source so our customers can get incredible image quality scans, and also at higher speeds.
