The facility, relaunching at 179 Wardour Street, Soho, has invested in multiple licenses of The Pixel Farm's PFClean restoration and remastering system, with PFSilo forming the backbone of a high-performance collaborative pipeline and management workflow.
Cineimage has a proven industry reputation among archives, and an enviable track-record in high-quality restoration, being responsible for the full clean-up, repair, and deliverables on a large number of classic movies using PFClean.
Cineimage's restoration facility has been designed from the ground up using The Pixel Farm's considerable expertise in restoration workflows to establish a 4K multi-artist, multi-project pipeline. Using a combination of software and The Pixel Farm's own-brand turnkey hardware based on an Infiniband network, the facility enables real-time client review up to 4K resolution with single point reference to clips being worked on, all in a secure, server-based environment.
In addition to film restoration, Cineimage is also planning to harness complementary PFClean and PFSilo technologies for the launch a new 2D-to-3D image conversion service.
