Proper scanning is a matter of vital importance, as photographers who shoot analog are well aware.
Typically, the scanning process for film and photographic sheets begins with an initial low-resolution capture pass (1Mb to 6Mb), which is called a “digital proof sampling”. This type of file is typically useful for quick frame reviewing, for use on social media, for test prints, and for digital pre-editing. After proof sample frames have been selected, a second scanning is generally done to produce larger and better quality files (including in specific native formats) using continuous strip scanners, flatbed scanners, drum scanners a/o virtual drum scanners (like i.e. Imacon scanners).
Our scanning labs are also available 24 /7 and come all the way to your photographic set (find out about on-the-set services by clicking here), ready to capture color and b&w negative, and reversal/dia from “half format” photographic film to 8×10″ large format sheets.
The digital material produced will be deposited on the ULTRAANALOGIC cloud and available for up to 12 months.
Original films and sheets will be kept in the same acquisition lab for up to 24 months.
PLAIN SURFACE SCANNING SERVICES
Our Labs are available to acquire (scanning) plain surfaces, mainly by reflection, up to ISO A2 (42x60cm) format. By flat material or plain surface, we mean paper media such as pages of text and/or graphics, geographical maps, artwork, transparent media such as projection transparencies, and photographic prints on any type of paper (glossy and matte).
The use of professional flatbed scanners ensures a very high-quality standard of the generated files, suitable for editorial and fine-art printing applications.
On the strength of these production capabilities and thanks to experiences gained over the years, ULTRAANALOGIC, offers the most demanding Clients services for photo editing, graphic composition, and layout specifically for publishing in the photographic field.
