Through this new arrangement, Lasergraphics will be offering Digital ICE Technology on their DIRECTOR series of film scanners.
“This is a great example of Kodak providing access to innovative technology that benefits customers within the motion picture industry,” said Kim Snyder, President, Entertainment Imaging. “Digital ICE Technology provides an important level of quality assurance in today’s evolving film/digital workflow.
