The Long Awaited Digital HD-Display for Analogue Editing Tables has been arrived: KEMscreen and STEevolution
KEMscreen, respective STEevolution, is an upgradable digital imaging system for analog film editing tables (KEM and Steenbeck) with modern, digital picture and sound output.
It replaces the bulky and bugged picture-modules of analogue editing tables by a modern digital technique with flat screen display and active speakers. They enable digital ad-hoc recordings while viewing archive stock of both, picture and sound, in a single step.
With this retrofit-set ad-hoc recordings in a modern HD-video-format can be produced very cost efficiently. The records include the embedded sync-sound whatever sound-format the table provides (e.g. SEPMAG). The core-system can be interchanged between the tables with KEMscreen-table interfaces.
The system is currently designed for the Black Magic Micro Cinema camera, but basically independent from the camera. Both, 16mm and 35mm prints can be recorded with soundtrack in picture or full frame natively. At the moment the new system is available for editing tables of the brands of KEM (KEMscreen) and Steenbeck (STEevolution).
