SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NANOTECH ENTERTAINMENT (OTCPINK: NTEK) announced today the acquisition of two Director Ultra HD 4K motion picture film-scanning systems from Lasergraphics. After an extensive selection process that included all of the leading scanner manufacturers, Lasergraphics’ The Director was selected as the scanner of choice for 4K Studios new facilities in San Francisco.
NanoTech recently introduced the world’s first Ultra HD 4K streaming media player, the Nuvola NP-H1, and is releasing the nVidia Tegra 4, which is based on the Nuvola NP-1 and NP-C players this quarter. “We have invested heavily into acquiring content now that we have the ability to stream Ultra HD 4K content into the home,” said NanoTech CEO Jeff Foley. “We tested several solutions, and the quality of output we were able to achieve with the Lasergraphics solution was unmatched. We are have already queued up several customers and are looking forward to bringing the ‘Future of Television’ to homes this fall.”
The Director's 4K resolution, high dynamic range and optical pin registration features were key factors in the decision. Some of the other criteria that set The Director apart from its competitors include its increased range of dynamic image quality, on-the-fly dust and scratch detection/reduction capability, scanning speed and ease of use. Lasergraphics' unique double and triple-flash High Dynamic Range (HDR) technology allows the scanner to capture dramatically more shadow detail from print film than any other scanner on the market. Steve Klenk, President of Galileo Digital, the exclusive distributor for Lasergraphics added, “We are very excited for the opportunity to work with the NanoTech team. By combining our phenomenal film scanners with the 4K Studios proprietary post-production process, the results are absolutely stunning.
