NEWS Announcing SEQ-S spline and match equalizer N Institute installs state-of-art film scanner T he Slovak Film Institute (Slovensk filmov stav, SF) has installed DFTs state-of-the-art film scanner, Scanity, for film preservation and archive at its facility in Bratislava, Slovak Republic. Founded in 1963, SF is the national film institute, responsible for the collection, preservation and protection of the Slovak audiovisual heritage. The SF film archive houses around 80,000 film reels, which include all films made in Slovakia. Regarded as a significant part of national cultural heritage, these films are considered to be national property, protected by the state, and entrusted to SF for archiving and administration. UGEN Audio, creator of intuitive tools for audio professionals, has launched SEQ-S, a high-fidelity, linear-phase equalizer (EQ) ideal for music production and mastering as well as film and post- production applications. With support for mono, stereo, 5.1, and 7.1 surround, SEQ-S provides sonic sculpting and precision EQ matching including stereo mid-side operation, automated spectrum analysis, curve smoothing, and a direct- draw spline interface for corrective applications. SEQ-S is available now for the estimated retail price of $249. More information about SEQ-S and other NUGEN Audio products is available at www.nugenaudio.com An extensive review of all available technology by SF specialists determined that the DFT 4k film scanner suited their requirements perfectly. Scanity can ingest film at real-time 2K and 4k speeds, to produce outstanding image quality, even at high speeds. It has been designed for the safe and gentle handling of precious film stocks, and the end-to-end process, which includes real-time audio and infra-red scanning, made it a perfect fit for this large scale and challenging project. www.dft-film.com Radio comms and equipment for Glasgow 2014 R iedel Communications will supply all radio communications equipment and services for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, running from July 23 to Aug. 3 in Glasgow, Scotland. “The ability to communicate effectively at Games venues and throughout Glasgow and other parts of Scotland is an essential element to delivering a successful Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games,” said Brian Nourse, chief information officer, Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. “We have benefited from Riedel’s extensive experience of being involved in many previous major sporting events to ensure a robust communications solution is delivered for our event,” Riedel Communications has designed a radio communications solution for use across Glasgow and at the 14 venues hosting 17 different sporting competitions.
