Subject says it all.

There used to be a rent-able Super 8 gate for Rank's. Is there such a thing for Spirit? If so, where?

Thanks.

Jef

As far as I know there is no rental S8 gate for the Spirit. Shops with S8 gates include LightPress, Cinelicious, Spectra and Technicolor had one. You could ask but I bet they would want to sell the service and not rent the gate.

Technicolor NY had the S8 Spirit gate, but Hollywood never had the gate. We got it in only on very, very rare occasions.

There are all kinds of scanners that can handle S8/reg8 to HD now, but not necessarily Spirits.

Hi Marc,

Any idea if Technicolor NY still has that Spirit S8 gate? And any ideas as to who I might contact there to see if it would be rented?

Thanks,

Jef

No, I think it was only available for internal use for Technicolor divisions. My memory is that the gate had a value of something like $150,000 -- at least, I think that was its insured cost some years back. Not cheap.

I sincerely think you're better off just paying to have it done by another company. You could contact DFT and ask if there's somebody who will rent a Super 8 Spirit gate, but I dunno... they may not have an answer.

Jef, I don't know where you are, and what quantity of material you want to process, but we have a LaserGraphics ScanStation with a Super 8 gate, which can do actual 2k scans (the camera zooms optically) of S8 material. Send me a message if that's something that could be interesting to you.

Thanks for the info all.

I am working on a personal project. We have a Spirit I can use on off hours. Just need a gate.

Any more ideas, let me know.

Thanks,

Jef

What is the wager that the rental price for the gate would be about the same as a DminDmax scan?

Is that a company? Because if it is, boy, did they ever pick a bad name to Google.
