There are many different types of material: black-and-white and color films, unique and non-standard formats, films on a cellulose-nitrate, cellulose-acetate or triacetate base. Both emulsion and film carrier are subject to degradation and are affected by different types of problems. Torn or missing perforations, scratches, warping and shrinkage are only the most common issues affecting archive material.
The film transport compensates for a lot of different problems,
adjusting the step size, tension and winding speed are important
parameters when dealing with damaged film.
With the Archive Gate the ARRISCAN can 'see' the perforations of
the film, which enables the Built-in Stabilization.
When perforations are missing or torn on both sides of the film,
the Sprocketless Film Transport is required.

For feature film scanning as well as in a wide range of commercials, film restoration and in digital dailies applications, more than 100 ARRISCANs are in use worldwide. Constant evolution since its introduction in 2004 has made the ARRISCAN the futureproof investment in film digitizing.
