Cintel is the world’s first affordable motion picture film scanner, acquiring stunning real-time Ultra HD scans for under $30,000. Compact and simple, it replaces bulky, complex units costing hundreds of thousands of dollars, eliminating the need for expert assembly and operation.
This has profound cultural implications for institutions and creative individuals alike. Libraries and museums can, for the first time, affordably scan vast catalogues of fragile archival film, preserving rare and important historical footage against inevitable degradation. Independent filmmakers may now harness the timeless image quality of motion picture film, confident in drastically reduced production costs and lead times.
