Lite drammensfirma med stor kontrakt i Hollywood.
Har solgt maskin som sørger for verdens beste bilder på film.

Film er best på kino mener Hollywood. Og derfor er amerikanerne interessert i det lille firmaet Cinevation fra Drammen.
Drammensfirmaet har nemlig laget en maskin som omgjør filmen fra digitalt format til tradisjonell 35 mm film på svært kort tid.
- Bedre kvalitet
Og det er viktig fordi kvaliteten på film som er spilt inn digitalt ikke er god nok for kinoene.
Filmen må derfor gjøres om til tradisjonell film for at kinonene skal kunne vise den med topp kvalitet.
Det unike med maskinen fra Drammmen er at det går 50 ganger raskere å omgjøre filmen til 35 mm format enn det konkurrentens maskin klarer.
Kontrakten med filmselskapet i USA er på over ti millioner kroner.
- Viktig med anerkjennelse
- Det betyr svært mye for Cinevation, sier daglig leder Rune Bjerkestrand.
- Det betyr først og fremst anerkjennelse og vi får nå sjansen til å markere oss, sier han.
I sommer fikk drammensfirmaet besøk av selskapet E Film fra Hollywood som er en av de største aktørene for digitalfilm.
PS: Representanter fra den store filmindustrien Bollywood i India og filmmiljøet i England har også besøkt Drammen.

Cinevator™five Digital Film Printer
Created by: Cinevation
With Cinevator™five you can take your digital intermediate and go directly to positive print film including both digital and analogue sound and subtitles – in real time!! There is no shorter way to film! If you need only one copy or less than say a hundred copies of a feature film, - you do not even need to make a negative intermediate. You can produce the distribution prints directly from Cinevator™five. Cinevator™five can replace a traditional negative film recorder, a sound camera, a traditional film-printer and a subtitling machine. Going directly to print-film eliminates all the processes involving negative intermediate and the contact printing that might deteriorate the image and sound quality. Consequently, the quality of distribution copies made this way will be exceptionally good. This machine can also make negative intermediate, inter-positive and negative sound film.

CGP35™ Digital Color Grading Projector
Created by: Cinevation
A digital projector that delivers an unsurpassed image quality with colours that match 35 mm film. The CGP35™ is ideal for the editing suite or screening room, - and used in concert with the CMS35™ and the Cinevator™, you can be sure that what you see on your screen is what you get on film!
Key Features
The CGP35™ is Cinevation’s flagship DLP™ technology-based Colour Grading Projector. Based on High Definition 3-chip DLP™ technology, the CGP35™ delivers a superb picture with remarkable colour fidelity and sharp details. Also, it features the revolutionary CinePlex™ Image Processor, the remote processor box that is equipped with a wide choice of inputs (including 2k and HD) and linked to the projector through a thin fibre optic cable.
With this innovative feature of using an external input/image processing box connected via fibre optic link to the projector, Cinevation has made installation and signal management an easy task. Film and video sources are typically located far away from the projector and it is becoming very difficult to run 2k-compatible cables for long distances. With the CGP35™ this issue no longer exists. The CinePlex™ Image Processor features all necessary digital and analogue inputs and is fully upgradeable. This means that you will no longer have to worry about changing the whole system if new signal standards appear, but will only upgrade the external input/image processor.
Based on a Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) chip-set the optical link allows a fully digital source-to-display link, which is capable of transmitting data over a distance in excess of 500 m (1600 ft), with 3 high-speed lasers between the CinePlex™ Image Processor and the projector for a loss-free and interference-free signal. The CGP35™ is available in a choice of 5 different lenses (throw ratio ranging from 0,64:1 (fixed) and from 1,2 – 1,4:1 to 3,6 – 5,6:1).

CMS35™ Color Matching System
Created by: Cinevation
The CMS35™ is the tool that will make your Colour Grading Projectors stay calibrated to your reference colours (e.g. the colours of 35 mm film) over time. The CMS35™ integrates perfectly with the CGP35™ (Cinevation’s Colour Grading Projector) and the Cinevator™ (Cinevation’s Digital Film Printer), and makes sure that what you see on the projected image from the CGP35™ - is what you get on the printed film from the Cinevator™

Key Features
In a projection system, optical components and lamps will change characteristics over their lifetime, creating difficulties for anyone trying to maintain an optimal colour balance in the projected image. Cinevation’s solution to this once so onerous chore is the CMS35™. The CMS35™ enables calibration of digital projection system to closely match a common colour reference and allows fast recalibration to maintain colour matching over time.

The CMS35™ provides the capability to:
• Measure and characterise colour capability of both digital and traditional 35 mm film projection systems
• Define and set reference colours in the CGP35™
• Calibrate individual CGP35™ to reference colours
• Calibrate several CGP35™’s to the same set of reference colours (e.g. the same 35 mm film reference)
