TBS SPARKLE, Inc. Installs Cintel Scanner for Film Archiving

PostMon May 20, 2019 5:43 pm

Blackmagic Design announced today that TBS SPARKLE, Inc. has installed a Cintel Scanner and DaVinci Resolve Studio to digitize a huge amount of 16mm footage from 1955 to the 1980s. This will include the digitization of more than 3,000 films, documentaries and news shows, as well as other footage shot by TBS SPARKLE, Inc.

TBS SPARKLE, Inc. is a drama, variety, media and sports production company based out of Tokyo. The company's management department, which is in charge of film archive work, manages videos broadcast by Tokyo Broadcasting System Television, Inc. This includes about 1.3 million videos, such as dramas, varieties, music and news programs.

“We have long wanted to make use of the film we have as digital data, but it was not realistic in terms of cost, so we couldn’t do anything for a long time. If you order these film archives externally, it could cost 200 million yen. As we continued to look for ways to digitize over 3000 valuable films, we found low cost and high quality Cintel Scanners. In house film archiving has become possible,” said Mr. Hisao Nishimura of TBS SPARKLE, Inc.
