Kinoton supplies D-Cinema Technology for German Film Academy in Potsdam
The German cinema technology manufacturer Kinoton has installed a complete DCI compliant D-Cinema system at the Hochschule für Film und Fernsehen “Konrad Wolf” (Academy for Film and Television) in Potsdam-Babelsberg. The Hochschule für Film und Fernsehen, HFF in short, mainly uses the new 2K projection system for screening and quality inspection in the digital post production process.
The HFF students have been producing digital films for several years already, but until now there had not been an accurate digital screening room. Now the newly installed 2K DCP 70 L Digital Cinema Projector remedies this handicap.
The DCP 70 L is based on the DLP Cinema® technology from Texas Instruments. The DLP Cinema® components are supplied by Barco, a licensee of the DLP Cinema® technology.
A special post production version of the D-Cine Communicator software makes set-up and control of the projector fast and easy. Thus the DCP 70 L is perfectly suited for a large variety of applications in the post production process:
HD productions and video animations as well as images from the HFF’s own film scanner can now be screened and presented easily and in premium quality, no matter if as uncom-pressed single frames or as full-length D-Cinema movies. Due to its anamorphic lens, the DCP 70 can project any common digital picture format such as 18:9, Widescreen or Cinema-scope without any pixel loss. Via an additional Acsar2 Image Scaler any content source can be connected. Even picture in picture projection is possible, a kind of visualisation ideal for teaching purposes as different digital content can be directly compared.
A complete Dolby Digital system, installed by Kinoton as well, provides brilliant cinema sound to accompany the finished productions of the students. Now even Hollywood movies can be presented with top grade picture and sound.
The Hochschule für Film und Fernsehen “Konrad Wolf” is the largest and longest-established one of Germany’s five media academies. Nonetheless it does not cling to its traditions, but is open for new developments of the media business, always offering its students state-of-the-art capturing, studio and projection equipment. For an example, young film-makers are used to work with microprocessor controlled Kinoton film projectors already, as the HFF had years ago purchased an FP 38 E for 16- and 35-mm films and an FP 30 E-R with reverse shuttle operation.
The HFF is located in the media center of Babelsberg in Potsdam close to Berlin. The vicinity to the contemporary film business generates valuable synergy effects. In cooperation with experienced partners such as the Babelsberg Studios and the fx.Center (a high-end postproduction centre), the HFF students can link the theoretical content of theirs seminars with daily practice. This practical education is bearing reach fruit – every year the films of the HFF students are winning numerous German and international awards.
As a place of cultural, social and political debate the HFF offers a wide spectrum of seminars for advanced training and a variety of cultural events. With its artistic development and pro-duction, its scientific research and its sound education it helps to further establish Germany’s good reputation as an important media centre.
