High quality scanning
To achieve high quality scanning, especially from negatives and transparencies (slides), we use a high end scanner with a high level of "optical density" also known as "dynamic range". This means we can faithfully capture the tone or shade differences of the original.
Our scanner uses the award-winning Digital ICE Technology which consists of a special sensor, ICE technology for scanning built into the scanner, which detects film defects such as scratches, dust and fingerprints. These can be very noticeable in film scans.
The software repairs the defective areas only. The underlying image is not affected, softened or blurred by this process which would be the case with software-only solution.
