Archive Gate

Damaged material and unusual frame heights are common challenges for archive scanning. With an aperture that is not only wider, but also taller than standard 16 mm or 35 mm film frames, the Archive Gates have enough headroom to allow frames to be stabilized after scanning. Severely damaged film can be scanned with ease, as can non-standard film formats with unusually tall frame sizes.
