Beijing, China—Tokyo Laboratory LTD (Togen), a film laboratory with 60 years of history, has recently installed Blackmagic Design’s new Cintel Film Scanner, where it will be used to provide real time, Ultra HD digital film scanning and keycode telecine.
Togen provides a wide range of services including telecine, editing, colour grading and the latest DCP mastering, as well as traditional film service such as developing, timing and printing.
“We were looking for a successor to our current telecine system,” said Naoki Moriizumi, manager in the Digital Process Group of Togen. “Cintel is capable of scanning in real time, as well as capturing both images and audio so we can use it like a telecine system. Furthermore, we use DaVinci Resolve Studio as a grading system, so we know that we will be able to work efficiently using both Cintel and Resolve.”
