  Telecine   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Telecine is the process of transferring motion picture film to video, or a machine used to complete this process.
Telecine enables a motion picture, captured originally on film, to be viewed with standard video equipment, such as televisions and video cassette decks.
In England and other countries that use the PAL or SECAM video standards, telecine is relatively straightforward: film destined for television is photographed at 25 frames per second, and the PAL video standard broadcasts at 25 frames per second.

 Linear motor film gate for telecine - Patent 6081293
A housing associated with a telecine optical block is operative to support and transport a single film frame in a precisely controlled linear motion past a telecine scanning aperture for scanning.
In a typical telecine, a source of light such as a flying spot scanner or a laser beam scans the film, or a light bulb projects the image onto a light detecting array, frame by frame, in a line-by-line or raster scan fashion.
If the telecine includes a motor driven capstan, the telecine capstan motor may be employed to hold the film steady during return movement of the film transport carriage and maintain pin alignment.

 Telecine projectors provide a low cost way to transfer your 8mm and 16mm film to DVD. Convert your home movies to video ...
Telecine is a procedure that allows motion images captured on film to be viewed on standard video equipment.
The benefits of telecine are numerous, most commonly we are speaking of the film to video transfer which allows 8mm film to be transfered to digital video such as DVD.
Some telecine processes do project to a screen and then point a camera at the screen and record the image, but this is method provides very poor quality.

 Telecine Colorist,Operator
The telecine colorist interpretation of colors is one of the most difficult tasks, artistically and technically.
All the grading and colour matching is done by eye, this is why it is essential for a colourist to have a feel for colour to possess, a natural flair for the subtlety of colours.
The driving force behind a telecine session is usually the Director of Photography and the Director.

 Video Artefacts - Telecine Wobble
This is a machine that is fundamentally a modified movie projector, but instead of projecting the film image onto a screen, the film is projected onto a device which converts the film image into a form suitable for processing into video.
If the mechanics of the telecine machine are not precisely set up, the film can weave backwards and forwards as it passes through the machine, with the result that the final video image wobbles from side-to-side as well.
Telecines are not the only source of wobble in a video image, however.

 Telecine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In a flying-spot scanner (FSS) or CRT telecine, a pixel-sized light beam is projected through exposed and developed motion picture film (either negative or positive) at a phosphor-coated envelope.
On DVDs, telecined material may be either hard telecined, or soft telecined.
The term telecine is sometimes used to refer to a less common form of pirated releases of films created by using a telecine machine, as opposed to recording the projected image with a video camera.

 Windows Media Format 11 SDK To Use Inverse Telecine
Telecine is the process of converting film, which has 24 frames per second, to video, which has 60 fields (half frames) per second.
When you digitally encode a video that was created from film by using telecine, the compression process can cause motion artifacts and other degradations in quality.
When using inverse telecine, the codec reconstructs the original 24 film frames per second from the input video before encoding the content.

 Telecine User Profile   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Telecine was established in 1986 and has, according to Fine, "never turned down a challenging project.” Recently, film director Stephan Elliot (Priscilla Queen of the Desert) hired Telecine to generate images for monitors and screens in the feature film Eye of the Beholder.
Telecine has found a niche in developing video work for the feature film industry and has participated in other films such as Brainscan, The Peacekeeper, Blood from a Stone, The Pact, and Free Money.
One of Telecine's first projects with the DigiSuite was a 3 camera edit for a high-end fashion show Fine explains the process: "It was recorded ISO - that is, rather than have the camera's switched live to tape, each camera was recorded seperatley to be edited together later.

 KODAK: Telecine Calibration System
All motion picture films for television applications need to be digitized with telecines (motion picture film scanners for television applications or broadcast), and then color-corrected for the appropriate look.
In the past, calibration techniques for telecines have been limited in their ability to transfer all image information from film to digital.
The Kodak TCS with the LUTs takes the scanned video data from the telecine, modifies the data by applying the LUT, without losing any of the information that was on the original camera negative, and then puts the video data back into the video stream.

Without question, professional telecine shows Super 8 off to its absolute best, but can be a pricey option for the majority of amateur filmmakers.
Other film chain and film scanning options are available, but any commercial solution is reliant on others to undertake the work, at a variety of costs and to their particular timescales.
In addition, Tobin Cinema Systems produce standalone telecine units which have an in built video pick up device to be used independent of a computer system.

 Telecine at Sunset Digital
Telecine mastering is what has made Sunset famous as a premiere boutique studio for many years.
The process of creating a master videotape recording often begins with a theatrical screening of the feature film, either at the client's studio or in one of our two D-Cinemastage Digital Mastering Theaters, which are state-of-the-art telecine suites in their own right, the larger of which can double as an elegant and workable screening room.
Next, the film is cleaned ready for transfer, the soundtrack and picture are synchronized and the computer program reproduces its color timing instructions and recorded onto videotape, the colorist supervises this process, then fine-tunes the color as needed.

 Digital Intermediates - A Virtual Telecine
Ascent Media developed its virtual telecine environment to eliminate the need for separate transfers when creating various widescreen and full-screen DVD versions of feature films.
Since Ukon enables the film to be transferred via the conventional telecine only once, Sanders says Ascent Media's clients are assured that digital restoration and color correction decisions will be consistent and uniform across all deliverable versions.
Not only does the process ensure higher quality at lower cost (because colorist resources can be focused on a single unique HD transfer) but it also reduces wear and tear on the film itself, he says.

 Telecine, film -> HD - The Digital Video Information Network
I have a 16mm shoot coming up in about 2 months, and we are wanting to get a HD telecine (or scan as the lab calls it) for future festival entry and so on.
The 16mm will look gorgeous with a good telecine to HD, and if you wanted to strike a 35mm print, you are folding in the costs of an optical blow-up into the film-out.
The procedure with telecine is that you have a choice of going through a complete reel and making your settings, then letting the reel run while the DaVinci does its thing; or running off to tape as you go.
