Re: Customer review: Universal 2K

Awesome! Glad it's working well for you. You should have the spacers you need to crop as required as we included an extra 10mm tube. To fine tune the crop, just turn the focus barrel one direction or the other and then use the column knob to refocus. You will find that you can subtly "zoom in and ou...

Re: RetroSync software offline temporarily

Almost embarrassing but there's yet another new RetroSync update version 1.0.0.5 which finally addresses some pesky install issues we had in the last version(s). Crazy. Anyway, this new version works just great, very stable and we also added a sync option for users that have the old Bell and Howell ...

Re: Bauer sound projector question for the gang...

Update on this mystery. This info from Van Eck: In reverse the motor runs in the different direction, this means that the cooling from the fan is not reaching the part that burn the film. This is why in reverse the film is in more danger off burning. With kind regards, Thijs de Kort Repair departmen...

Re: RetroSync software offline temporarily

Okay, the RetroSync beta software is back on line. There was a problem with a corrupted installer. The new 1.0.0.1 version seems to be okay. Sorry for any inconvenience to any new RetroSync users.

RetroSync software offline temporarily

For RetroSync users, the download link for the software has been temporarily taken offline. Fixing a bug on the install. Will be back soon. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Re: Bauer sound projector question for the gang...

Hi Roger, the Bauer projector has a three bladed shutter at all frame rates. The extra set of blades is for reverse motion. In forward motion, the two sets of blades align, so the light output is maximized. In reverse motion, the smaller set of blades shifts a bit to create a longer dark interval. ...

Re: Bauer sound projector question for the gang...

Here's what the shutter blades look like: http://www.moviestuff.tv/bauer_blades.jpg Again, I think the smaller set moves in between the regular blades when the unit is in the 18fps mode. This would reduce the visible flicker by increasing the effective flicker rate to the eye. But I could be totally...

Re: Bauer sound projector question for the gang...

I've looked at the manual and it says nothing about the shutter blades, which is odd. I can't find anything about them.

Re: Customer review: Universal 2K

More information from Bob: A review of the new UltraLite retrofit kit for my RetroScan Universal. I received my new UltraLite kit, installed it and took it for a spin. Removal of the original light source was a breeze and installation of the new one was simple. It popped into the hole in the base an...

Customer review: Universal 2K

This is from Bob Nichols with pingpongmedia.com out of Arizona: I installed my new 2K camera with the UltraLite and the new LEDs in the perforation hole sensor block. In addition to "Grandma's" movies, I do a lot of high-end work for archives, film makers and museums. So, I'm really, REALLY picky ab...

Bauer sound projector question for the gang...

I was looking at a photo of a Bauer sound projector that had two sets of shutter blades. It was essentially a standard 3 bladed shutter but there was a second set of blades, slightly smaller in width, situated behind the first set. I am only surmising but I think what happens is that when the unit i...

Re: Transferring 16mm Prints

I'm not an attorney but I will tell you what I understand the law to be here in the USA. In short, if you don't own the copyright, then you aren't allowed to copy it. The fact that the films are old doesn't necessarily mean anything. In fact, one of the problems facing restoration of some "classic" ...

Re: Universal now offering 2K and Audio modules!

Your new products looks really great, Roger. One question: You say about the new UV emitters: "This makes dialing in the sensor levels for clear edge film or film with clear patches (like R8) much easier." Does this mean that it is possible to find a sensor level that is OK for all types of film? I...
