Speaking of Black Magic Design's designs.

BMD on the move.

Blackmagic Design Acquires Assets of Cintel International -- DV Info Net

Cintel makes film scanners - not sure how this plays into Black Magic's Design.

( Sorry, I mistook Cintel for Cinetal initially).

"This acquisition gives Blackmagic Design the ability to combine our vision and expertise with Cintel technology to provide the best technology for artists using film, more efficient and affordable ways to bring film into a digital workflow and better ways to archive and restore existing archive film worldwide"

Really interesting. Sounds almost like they're trying to keep film alive. Perhaps to the tune of 16mm when considered within the context of their only digital cinema camera.

Re: Speaking of Black Magic Design's designs.

To me this is a mixed message. Keep film alive? I mean, that's cool, but I can't see the profit in it.
I mean, look at Kodak.

I thought at first BMD had purchased Cine-tal, who makes some high end monitors.
That made sense because of Resolve and other CC software.

This doesn't quite compute and their message almost appears as if a 'mis-direction' for the competition.

That said, they know way more than I do for sure. Something's cooking.

Re: Speaking of Black Magic Design's designs.

I think that it might have more to do with technology of image processing, than with the hardware itself.

Re: Speaking of Black Magic Design's designs.

There will be a continuing need for film scanners because of the vast quantity of film in the various achieves worldwide, quite apart from people wanting to use film as an acquisition format. Much of the historical film we see would be improved by a modern transfer, rather than the original SD telecine. If you can get back to the original negative the images can be stunning.
