NEWS MANIPULATE & EDIT Cloud editing The Cintel Film Scanner is being used by Cinema Arts, a subsidiary of the Vasallo Vision Group, to restore 35mm Mexican ﬁlm classics for distribution in HD on Spanish-speaking channels Cine Nostalgia and Cine Estelar. “It’s not just about restoring a ﬁlm,” said Cinema Arts chief executive Carlos Vasallo. “Our goal is to present the highest quality and be faithful to its artistic and historical work as envisioned by the original producers, directors and screenwriters.” Over the last three years, Cinema Arts has restored 1,000 of the 2,000 ﬁlms stored in the Cine Nostalgia and Cine Estelar vault, from 35mm to full HD, with a goal of completing the HD migration before the end of 2016. Cinema Arts bought the Cintel Film Scanner, one of the ﬁrst in Mexico, to meet the accelerated timeline. Also owned and operated by the Vasallo Vision Group, Cine Nostalgia and Cine Estelar stream movies in HD over cable platforms DirectTV, AT&T, Verizon, Cox and Frontier, as well as America TV and Canal 41 Miami. Forbidden Technologies has updated Forscene by adding the ability to both autosync multiple source material and comply with US closed caption regulations. The new autosync tool makes it possible to create synced, multi-track sequences irrespective of whether the source footage has synced timecode - or even any timecode at all. Editors can create sync maps for numerous video and/or audio sources in Forscene using either the original time code or by assigning an auxiliary timecode to the source, and then edit from a multi-track sequence or a multicam clip. The improved closed caption tool allows users to ingest, create, edit and publish captions just like a video or audio track on the timeline, making it easier to ensure compliance with FCC and CVAA standards. The updates were scheduled to be available at the end of March. blackmagicdesign.com forscene.com Restoration Video cards Workﬂow Edit Bridge, the integration application for Adobe Premiere Pro CC and Avid Interplay developed by Marquis Broadcast, now works with multi-vendor systems such as Apple Final Cut Pro X and Grass Valley Edius, it has been revealed.
