Kobe Design University Installs Cintel Scanner

PostMon Jul 30, 2018 4:15 pm

Blackmagic Design announced today that Kobe Design University has installed Cintel Scanner to archive hundreds of 16mm and 35mm films, some dating back to the 1920s. The project is taking place with the university’s Kobe Planet Film Archive, which collects, preserves and exhibits not only films but also books, posters and equipment related to cinema.

Kobe Design University is an art college founded in 1989 and includes Japan’s largest private film archive. The school has seven departments in total: environmental design, product and interior design, visual design, manga media, fashion and textile design arts and crafts and image arts, which includes courses on films and film production.

Owning more than 16,000 16mm and 35mm films in the Kobe Planet Film Archive, the university focuses on film archive projects, in collaboration with the university’s information library. As a way to contribute to Japanese culture and society, the university digitizes old films archived in the university and in Kobe Planet Film Archive, and also holds screenings using two 35mm projectors and a16mm projector. More than two hundred 16mm films archived in Kobe Design University are currently planned to be digitized, with more than 30 films already digitized with Cintel Scanner.
