Sensitive base material (Nitrate)

  • Despite the very fast scanning speeds, SCANITY handles aged film extremely safely. If film is unwind from its spool or core a static charge may build up. This charge is neutralized with conductive rollers in the film deck.
  • To minimize or avoid this charge build up prior to the first roller, the only way is to reduce the winding speed.
  • SCANITY allows the user to limit the speed to a certain setting to ensure that the film material is handled as gently as is appropriate for that stock
