Model Description:
2K+™ Scanning laser splice detection and image stabilization system so there are no sprockets

Model Details

The sensor systems now available include MWA's new 2.5K+™ HDR High Dynamic Range, the2336 x 1752 2K+™ or 4K single-chip Bayer sensors, 3-chip cameras for PAL or NTSC, 720P HD, and the standard 1920 x 1080 HD.

“As new sensors and cameras become available, MWA will be able to a upgrade user's Vario so they can transfer at even higher resolutions with more pixels and color fidelity,” MWA Nova North American distributor Ted Langdell advises.

“It’s like variations on a theme,” observed Langdell after hearing how the Berlin-based manufacturer had extended the range of sensors for the system orignially called simply flashtransfer HD 16/35.

That comment lead to the shorter name just in time for the first unit to be shipped to the US and installed at the Library of Congress in 2010.

The flashtransfer Vario is a flexible platform. “It can be ordered as a single-gauge machine, and easily upgraded to multi-gauge­ with just additional gates, software licence code and sound options.

MWA can build custom gauges for odd film–even rare 28mm,” he says.

flashtransfer Vario uses a laser splice detection and image stabilization system so there are no sprockets or claws involved. Just safe, smooth, continuous capstan drive movement of the film.

Shrunken film is now less of a problem to easily transfer.

The Vario's flexible transport system works with optical and magnetic film, silent film or camera original negative or positive, and can output a variety of 2K+™, HD and SD formats.
