Here's a link to some current information on the Kinetta Archival Scanner:


Here's a link to some tests I did re the importance of high-resolution scanning, even from material that conventional wisdom considers well-served scanned at SD or pillarboxed HD. 


Another use of extra resolution is to scan film edge-to-edge.  For archivists, this captures all of the "analog metadata" on the film -- edge numbers and optical tracks, which can be extracted at very high quality directly from the image scan file (skipping the pain of aligning and focusing analog track readers and the extra analog-to-digital conversion).  More on this shortly. 

Let me know of you have any questions.  Currently the closest Kinetta to you is in Paris at As'Image.
