Kinetta Logo for AMIAThe Kinetta Archival Scanner is designed to scan extremely damaged film that other scanners can’t, without damage. The threading path is simple, with large-diameter full-support rollers and a curved gate — no spring-loaded dancer arms.  Low-cost gates are available for any format from 3mm to 35mm. Instantly upgradable as newer and better sensors come along — it takes just one minute for the user to swap sensors — so the Kinetta won’t become obsolete.  You can choose to scan edge-to-edge, or just the image, to make the best use of the pixels.  And what pixels! — our 5K sensor has 7.4 micron pixels for low noise and great dynamic range.
Recent tests by a European non-profit (soon to be published) rated the Kinetta best at capturing the full dynamic range of the most difficult material, including Technicolor IB prints. Captures 16-bit RAW files for the most latitude in grading. Full control over both illumination color and brightness, along with powerful digital signal processing. It’s portable and simple to use, which has made it the choice of many archives worldwide.
