IVC/Point.360 Archive Development

IVC/Point.360 has begun to show industry forums a new technique for creating a film based backup. Instead of the usual YCM three strip, it uses a single strip of film, typically B&W, and a system of reference blocks that insure exact registration and color "as long as the film can get through a scanner." 

FilmLight announced at IBC 2010 that they will serve as the distributor of the process (given their relationship with Aaton) outside the US.

The next public presentation will be at the ACVL (Association of Cinema & Video Laboratories) of the Library of Congress on 8 October 2010, and at the SMPTE Annual Technical Conference and Expro on 26 October 2010.
