Hi guys,

just bought a Beaulieu 2016 Quartz that I'm sending to Bjorn Andersson for a full service.

I was thinking about having it converted to Ultra 16 as the S16 is not possible on the Beaulieu, what do you think about?

Pro & cons?

Can't find any info on the web about that so any advice welcome.

Thanks

 

Giorgio

I remember that I had the same question when I bought my first Beaulieu R16 about 8 years ago, I saw some web list the R16 for S16 convention , but in fact, when I contact them, there is no one can really do it.

Since Ultra-16 is simply widening the gate equally on both sides, I'd say go for it. A little extra negative never hurt. Keep in mind that not all telecine/scanning services can handle Ultra-16 as Spirits need special modifications to see between perfs so make sure your transfer house can handle that little extra room in-between perfs... otherwise your framing may look off.
