Hope I'm not overstepping here, but I just wanted to let folks know that we've upgraded our Lasergraphics ScanStation and can now handle both mono and stereo Super 8 sound.

 

While mono was most common, since that's what most cameras recorded on the wider main stripe, it was/is possible to record audio to the balance stripe on the opposite side of the film, using certain projectors and viewers.

 

The custom mag head can read both stripes, in perfect sync with 2k scans, at any of the frame rates that the scanner works at. The scanner compensates for pitch changes due to the faster (or slower) scan speed, automatically.

 

Thanks!

It will be interesting to see if the demand covers the cost of the upgrade. That's why I could never run a film scanning business...I'd spend every cent on equipment and still want more!
