A new third generation optical soundtrack camera developed by NT takes Dolby SRD digital data to a whole new level with improved quality, extended print life, and cost savings for end-users. The camera was designed, engineered and built in-house by NT with the aim to get a Dolby DQI of 90 always.
“Implementing new technologies, developing improvements, this is what keeps NT at the forefront”, says Peter Bulcke, NT COO. “We are constantly striving for excellence in all product and service areas.”
NT’s latest version of their highly successful optical sound camera series exposes the Dolby® SRD digital data with a proprietary process that is more precise than previous methods. This procedure increases the Dolby® DQI score during soundtrack playback resulting in fewer drop outs and reversions to the analog track.
The new process offers cost saving benefits to end users because higher DQI scores can help extended a release print’s life by avoiding replacement due to read errors. As a consequence the audience will only seldom experience the reversion to analog.
