Kodak To Showcase Asset Protection Films at AMIA Conference

Publish date:

Kodak will showcase its portfolio of asset protection films at this year’s Association of Moving Image Archivists (AMIA) Annual Conference, here from December 5-8 at The Westin Seattle. The company will also present information on the newest addition to its film family–KODAK VISION3 Digital Separation Film 2237. The AMIA Conference is an annual gathering of industry professionals and academia that brings together the restoration and preservation community who work tirelessly towards saving and keeping cinema and broadcast content accessible, whether created today or 100 years ago. The Reel Thing XXX is a technical symposium directly preceding the conference. During this event, Kodak will highlight their 2237 Film, as well as review a customer case study of another new film, KODAK Color Asset Protection Film 2332. “We are honored to continue to support this community, and help in finding answers to the grave concerns revealed in the Motion Picture Academy’s Digital Dilemma reports,” says Kodak’s Diane Carroll-Yacoby, product manager for Kodak’s Entertainment Imaging Division. “We have a longstanding relationship with AMIA, and the important research and practices they develop will help preserve our cultural heritage long into the future. We consider ourselves partners in that same endeavor.” At the conference, Kodak will show a short demo of the KODAK VISION3 Digital Separation Film 2237, which became available last month. This archival film is optimized for laser, CRT and LED light sources utilized by digital recorders in the marketplace. Providing exceptional image quality including fine detail, tight grain, optimal resolution, and excellent flare characteristics, KODAK VISION3 2237 Film is offered on an ESTAR base for premier physical performance and long-term stability that lasts centuries in recommended conditions. Earlier this year, Kodak showed the AMIA audience a demonstration of their just-introduced KODAK Color Asset Protection Film 2332 at The Reel Thing XXIX event in Los Angeles. Priced for indie and broadcast budgets, this color film is optimized for content owners who originate or finish their productions digitally, but want to protect their valuable content on film for the future. The stock offers over a century of dye stability when stored in recommended environments and Kodak’s ESTAR base guarantees high-quality physical performance. The third stock in Kodak’s new Asset Protection Films portfolio was launched in 2010 and is used in production pipelines at post houses and laboratories around the world. KODAK VISION3 Color Digital Intermediate Film 5254/2254 is designed for use with contemporary film recorders and enhances the speed and efficiency of DI postproduction while rendering noticeably sharper images that more faithfully represent the intentions of filmmakers.
