Kenro Press Release
Kenro announces the Reflecta Super 8 Scanner
Kenro, the official UK and Ireland distributor of Reflecta (the respected German manufacturer of cutting-edge digitization products) has provided those with Super 8 (5.78 x 4.01mm) cine film archives with a new, revolutionary way of digitizing films quickly and easily - the Reflecta Super 8 Scanner.
The latest innovation from Reflecta has a resolution of 1920x1080p (Full HD) or 1280x720p (HD) and a colour depth of 24 bit. The Scanner features a CMOS sensor and uses an LED light source. Scanning time is 5 seconds per 2 pictures and its video file size is 190MB per 15m of film in HD quality, saved in AVI format.
One of the key benefits of the Super 8 scanner is its ease of use. Simply connect it to the PC via the included USB cable and open the provided Cyberview software while attaching the (colour or monochrome) film spool to the scanner. Then users are ready to go. The film will be transported automatically and initially scanned frame by frame. Cyberview not only allows users to scan their films but has the added option of adjusting brightness and contrast as well as cropping.
