LAS VEGAS — Eastman Kodak said Monday that Pacific Title Digital has purchased a Cineon Lightning II laser film recorder, which enables users to maintain the image quality of the original film negative while processing images quickly to accommodate short post-production schedules.Kodak is among the companies most aggressively lauding the emergence of digital TV. The film giant is developing technologies to exploit new possibilities for its silver halide and computer-based technologies. At the National Assn. of Broadcasters show that runs here through Thursday, Kodak execs said they were delighted by the FCC’s recent approval of a digital TV standard. Because the quality of images seen on a digital TV system is higher than what’s seen on a current set, film resolution pictures — the highest resolution available today — will likely continue to be in great demand. “With the increased quality of digital TV, consumers’ expectations of the images they hope to see will rise,” predicted a Kodak spokesman. Pacific Title Digital is currently using the Cineon Lightning II on DreamWorks’ “The Peacemaker.”
