Blackmagic Cintel Scanner

Discipline: Product

Cintel is the world’s first affordable motion picture film scanner. Acquiring stunning Ultra HD footage in real-time, it replaces bulky, complex scanners costing more than $100,000. This has profound cultural implications for institutions and creative individuals alike. Libraries, museums and schools can now affordably rescue fragile archival footage that would otherwise deteriorate. Cintel's lightweight, architecturally minimal esthetic is driven by meticulous attention to detail and simplicity for the user. Precision engineering and sophisticated image stabilizing software provides gentle film handling and accurate, high quality results.

  • DATE OF LAUNCH 2015

  • TARGET REGIONS Africa, Asia, Australia/Oceania, Europe, North America, South America

  • TARGET GROUPS Trade / Industry, Public Sector / Government

  • ASSESMENT CRITERIA Aesthetics, Practicability, Usability + Ergonomics

This is a very innovative, professional, high-level product that can handle the largest film formats. Given the level of quality, it is very affordable, and its mechanical features and housing are beautifully and holistically executed. The construction is amazing and, combined with the color scheme and mechanics, makes this device a work of art!
