Remastering for Distribution
Remastering a film or tape is the process of converting an analog medium to digital while enhancing the picture quality so that it is prepped and readied for re-distribution.
In our film scanning department, Duplitech’s technicians convert tapes and 8mm, 16mm, 35mm film libraries to 2K and 4K digital files. We first curate and catalog your library to ready for inspection, repair, cleaning, and scanning.
Depending on the condition of the library we conform the scanned materials and provide color grading to enhance the appearance to maximum performance level, looking at contrast, color, saturation, detail, black level, and white point. When working with old film or tape, further restoration may be needed to repair dirt, dust, scratches, splices, tears, color fade, color change, flicker, warping film grain, shrinkage, jitter, weave and decay.
Duplitech's colorists are well versed in the color grading of older catalog titles from both original camera negative and interpositive scans. Our tools include a complete set of HDR image processing and grading capabilities, and our ultra-efficient workflow ensures a high-quality output at competitive rates.
Duplitech is a Dolby Vision and HDR-10+ certified color grading facility.
