All the same quality as our full size
Universal but built with the small shop in mind where
space and budget might be limited. Also a great
companion unit if you already have a Universal and just
need to handle a bit more 8mm and 16mm film. Full 2K
resolution is more than necessary for all 8mm and 16mm
home movies and both are handled in one, compact desktop
unit. No need to change guides. Just thread your film on
the appropriate built in film guide and focus using the
convenient focus knob that both focuses the film and
crops in one motion. Like our Universal 4K, this unit
was also designed specifically for the Academy of Motion
Picture Film Archives in Hollywood, which has been using
our equipment exclusively since 2003. This means no
sprockets, claws or pinch rollers to potentially damage
your priceless movies and handles the film only by the
edges with no image area contact. A lack of pressure
plate means no hair in the gate! This unit uses the
very same camera sensor as the Universal 4K but is
limited to 2048 x 1152, for true 16:9 2K
scans of all 8mm and 16mm source material. The easy to use
RetroScan Mark-II software scans Codec
Free, frame by frame, either compressed or
approximately 15fps, which means a 50 foot roll of 8mm
or a 100 foot roll of 16mm will scan in about 4.5
minutes. If your PC is a bit slow or your hard drive
is getting a bit full and sluggish, the unit can be
slowed down to 10fps without affecting the quality of
the scan. Final playback rate of the film is
determined by the Mark-II software after scanning is
complete. Files can currently be batch exported in a
variety of formats and resolutions as compressed
or uncompressed AVI or MOV files, or as high resolution
image sequences in mildly compressed JPG or
totally uncompressed PNG, BMP or TIF.
8162K Desktop Scanner
does not reproduce the audio from sound films. However,
a practical option that will work for both magnetic and
optical sound for all formats is our RetroSync
Studio Sound Module. It allows you to use any
standard projector to produce a synchronous sound track
that will match your Mark-II transfer.
