New Product Introductions for NAB
Philips Broadcast Television Systems Co. is launching the Spirit DataCine
at this year NAB convention. This is a new approach to film scanning in
that the imaging head is always scanning at full 2K resolutions, and all
internal color corrections or image manipulations are processed at this
high resolution and in real time. This data is then reformatted into the
desired output .   
Available Outputs include :
4:4:4:4 10 bit digital and analog
4:2:2:4 10 bit digital and analog
8:4:4 10 bit digital and analog
1125 / 60 HDTV Digital and analog
1250 / 50 HDTV Digital and analog

Data Output 
HiPPI interface for connection into workstations or file servers, delivers
2K RGB 10 bit log or 12 bit Linear data in a standard DPX or TIFF file
format. Also features fully selectable resolution on the data output, and a
#luminance only# mode for transferring Black and white images. The
machine signal processing is capable of processing 2K files in very
close to real time speeds ( 23 fps ) but currently restricted by HiPPI
bandwidth. Transfer speeds of between 6 to 10 frames per second can
be achieved, and all images can be delivered into the workstation with
primary color grade, aperture correction, size and position already
incorporated within the image file. Images can be color corrected in a
#traditional# Telecine environment using today#s high end color correctors
and conventional monitoring in either 525/625 or HDTV all being
performed in #real time# as in any conventional Telecine session. The
machine will then render the 2K   images off to a workstation device ( 6
to 10 frames per second ) through the HiPPI interface for further posting.

Other features include :
Optical matching for Print, Prime Time, Negative and IP film stocks
Blue rich Xenon 300W light source, with diffused illumination
Fast aperture light control, (optical gain).
Primary color correction, gain, gamma and lift, in STOP mode
X Pan, Y pan, Zoom (16X) X size, Y size and 360 degree image rotation,
all at full optical quality in STOP mode.
2 to 57 frames per second variable speed, forward and reverse in
56000 increments
Electronic noise below that of film grain, in all colors and at any
Automatic Shading, negative matching, fixed and user definable masking,
and lots more

Come see us on the Philips booth # 9300, we will have two Spirit
DataCine units on show, one running in 4:4:4:4 mode and the other in
HDTV (1125). Also on show is our Quadra Telecine, MNR 11 noise
reducer and the new pin registered gate for the Quadra developed by
