Does anyone know how a Telecine machine works, I know that some models need A DVCAM, but I don't know what it's used for.

Hi,

Google TIG or telecine internet group. That is a forum just about telecine and I am sure you will get a better answer there. They will also be able to give you prices if you wish to build a telecine suite at home.

DVCAM is not the telecine, it's just the tape deck that the signal from the telecine is being recorded onto.

Generally most telecine rooms are made up of three basic elements: the telecine, the color-corrector, and the recorder (tape formats or hard drives, etc.)

The telecine is the actual device that the film rolls through where the frame is captured electronically. There are different designs for image capture, like flying-spot scanners (electron beam scans the film one line at a time), line-array CCD's (film moves past a single row of pixels to scan one line at a time), etc.

The most primative set-up is basically a video camera pointed at a movie projector with some sort of screen between them, what is sometimes called a "film chain".

Matthew, do you even try and search on the internet for these answers on your own before you post?
