Mercury rising with purchase

Post-production house installs Scanity

Seoul, Korea-based boutique facility Mercury Post Production has purchased and installed a Scanity high-speed 2K film scanner from Germany’s DFT Film Technology.

The new system will serve as the hub of Mercury’s digital intermediate workflow, alongside a Blackmagic DaVinci 4K Resolve color corrector. It has already scanned and finished advertising projects, including work for McDonalds, Hundai Motors and Samsung’s Galaxy phone.

Scanity claims to be the fastest machine on the market, scanning 4K at up to15 frames per second, 2K at up to 25 fps, and 1K at up to 44 fps.

“We analyzed the technology of other film scanners and in our opinion Scanity’s features outweigh those of competitive scanners on the market,” said Mercury Post managing director Cho HyunKun.
