As restoration is only one aspect in the typical workflow of the movie industry, we have established international cooperations in order to provide complete solutions. Our partners and friends are from very different segments, researchers as well as technology- and hardware providers are among them.




The digital restoration workflow reaches a new level of consistency. The ARRISCAN with wet-gate and/or Infrared light is able to detect and correct a good deal of defects that are on the film. Full restoration and finishing tasks are then naturally done with a DIAMANT-Film Restoration System attached to the ARRISCAN. The Restoration operator can use the defect mask from ARRISCAN to focus defect correction on those parts of the movie that suffer serious problems. After restoration the corrected and repaired movie can be put back on film by means of an ARRILASER. This new and efficient workflow is first implemented at CINECO in Amsterdam. Other user following is the Austrian Filmarchive in Vienna, the Yugoslavian Archive in Beograd and the Filmoteka Naradowa in Warzaw. about ARRI
