Japan’s HBC Flex Installs Cintel Film Scanner

PostFri Mar 24, 2017 4:45 pm

Blackmagic Design today announced that HBC Flex has installed a Blackmagic Cintel Film Scanner to archive numerous films they have produced over their more than 50 years of filmmaking.

HBC Flex, launched in 1955 as an affiliated company of Hokkaido Broadcasting Co. Ltd., has produced a number of 16mm short films, as well as TV news and TV programs. Such films include images from the Hokkaido Olympics in 1972, promotional films for various cities and towns throughout the Hokkaido area, as well as for corporations, events and constructions. The company has more than 1,000 film titles, many of which are stored currently only as negative film.

“We wanted to check films we have produced with ease and wanted to convert the films to high quality data. These were our long time wishes and challenge. We also knew that we had to reorganize our library for film and tapes," said Hiroki Tuchisaka, executive director of HBC Flex. “We use Cintel mainly for data transfer from the 16mm or 35mm negative films we have produced. This includes audio data conversion from audio negative. We also complete data conversion for film that our customers bring to us.”
