Sprocketless Transport

In every archive, there are hopeless cases – unusual, early, non-standard film formats and material with no remaining perforations. In order to handle even these extreme cases, ARRI has developed a completely sprocketless transport.
This modular system can be installed on any ARRISCAN and for the first time allows severely damaged material to be digitized in perfect quality. As opposed to the capstan transport of telecine-style scanners, the framing can be adjusted electronically, without the need of any sprocket or optical perf detector. 

Common Challenges

  • Variable step sizes 
  • Support for non-standard perforations 
  • Easily exchangeable rollers
