ARRI Archive Systems / ARRISCAN XT



Tried and tested film restoration technology at a new level of excellence

In hundreds of archives around the world reels of film, some more than a century old, lie deteriorating. ARRI’s digitizing system, the new ARRISCAN XT, plays a key part in saving those films for future generations.

It builds on the achievements of the ARRISCAN and ARRILASER, which in recent years have set industry standards for digital postproduction. In cooperation with archives and restoration specialists worldwide, ARRI has applied this range of cutting-edge technologies for digitizing and remastering old and often damaged and fragile film.

ARRI’s ALEXA XT sensor gives the new ARRISCAN XT the best image quality for archive film, and its scanning speed is up to 65% faster than its predecessor. Badly damaged material can be worked on using a computerized intermitted frame-by-frame transport system. The diffuse, high-power LED illumination of the ARRISCAN XT reduces the visibility of scratches and does not produce any heat at all – essential when working with highly flammable nitrate stock. The Wet Gate system uses a specially developed liquid to conceal scratches and dust.

Developed by ZEISS in cooperation with ARRI, the ARRISCAN XT’s optics and the variable optical magnification system make sharpness-reducing digital resizing of scans unnecessary, even when scanning unusual frame dimensions or shrunken film material.

The ARRISCAN XT takes on existing, tried and tested film restoration technology to a new level of excellence. It is fully compatible with existing ARRISCANs, meaning restorers will be able to upgrade their equipment on-site with the addition of improved software, new features, and updated hardware.
