Re: Interested in a new RetroScan Universal?

The current software and the new software both run on any version of WIndows 7, 8 or 10 with no problem. The only problem we have seen with Windows 10 has nothing to do with our software but, rather, a situation that occurs when someone updates their PC from Win 7 or 8 to 10. Anyone upgrading to Win...

Re: Interested in a new RetroScan Universal?

On a related topic, we hope to have a 2K upgrade kit available by the summer. It is a separate kit that the user installs easily without having to send the whole unit back and will work with the Universal software, which is currently undergoing a complete revision. Will that be a full 2k 2048x1440i...

Re: Interested in a new RetroScan Universal?

What is the "break out box"? I don't see anything about it on the website. Roger could probably explain it better. But basically it's a way to access certain electrical wiring. So if you wanted to use a DSLR camera or even a Super 8 camera with the RetroScan Universal you could do so without having...

Re: Interested in a new RetroScan Universal?

The Universals have a 1 year warranty, not 90 day.

Re: Does a GoPro do well with projected film?

The GoPro has a rolling shutter, I believe. Not sure how well that might work with a real time transfer.

Re: New Customer Universal demo!

We should have a new software update within the next week. Changes in the user interface on the export page making it more intuitive. The addition of AVI output files both compressed and lossless. An active full screen program window that you can drag and expand on a second monitor. This is like the...

Re: RIP Tobin Cinema Systems

Tobin Cinema Systems is officially closed for business. Moviestuff is going to get a lot more bsuiness from now on. Clive and I shared a friendly competition for many years. He's a smart guy. But if I was going to get a lot more business because he's closing up shop, then I doubt he would be closin...

Re: Perry Movie Transfers

"1080 quality" could actually be achieved by scanning 8mm film in standard definition PAL and then uprezzing to 1080. If I ask them what the resolution is and they say it is 1080 and it's really 964, they have misrepresented the technical specs of the camera. But if they say the camera is 964 resol...

Re: Perry Movie Transfers

Thanks for the thoughtful reply. I really appreciate and agree that resolution is only one factor of the quality of any image, and optics, the source, mechanical factors and such often have a far greater effect while being far harder to quantify. But it still feels off to me to take one of the few ...

Re: Perry Movie Transfers

I know it might be inconvenient, but it seems like if your business is handling digital video, picking up a used $300 Mac might be a good investment for those customers working on that platform. I know it's an extra step but making it easy for customers makes them want to come back. Unless somethin...

Re: Perry Movie Transfers

Huh. 964 is only 90% of 1080p, and you have to be cropping inside the frame otherwise you'd lose even more when you crop out any oversampling. Just feels kind of disingenuous. 1080p is a very specific technical claim. Well, there is no intent to deceive though I suppose I could put a denoted explan...
