Vintage Cloud's
Archive Digitization
and Indexing
Services

A

t IBC, film archive digitization
specialist Vintage Cloud is
announcing a new service designed
for companies who want to monetize
their valuable archive assets but who
do not have, or wish to invest in, the
equipment or personnel necessary to
achieve it.
As well as digitization of archive
analog assets, indexing and the
generation of metadata are also
available to customers who have
already digitized their archive, but who
have not yet extracted the data from it
that will maximize its value.
"Vintage Cloud was created by
film people for film people, and we
share a background in film editing,
cinematography, sound engineering
and film production," said Peter
Englesson, CEO of Vintage Cloud. "We
know film, and that means we can
provide all the expertise needed for
any size of archive to help customers
derive the maximum value from their
film content."
The new service is based on Vintage
Cloud Steenbeck, the only system
capable of digitizing separate image
and audio at the same time at up to
4K resolution and up to 60 fps. It is
therefore 3-5 times less costly per
digitized hour than other systems
while
delivering
unprecedented image
quality. Recognizing
the nature of much
archive
material,
Vintage
Cloud
Steenbeck is highly
tolerant of broken
perforations, fragile
splices, warped and
brittle film, and is also
capable of handling
shrunken film via
a special capstan
sprocket.
"We can take care
of an entire project,
delivering maximum
results for minimum
cost,"
Englesson
continued.
"There's
a lot to think about

in undertaking a project to transfer
analog files to digital - but we've
used our considerable experience and
expertise in making the investment
in creating the optimum tools for the
job."
The all-in-one system has now been
enhanced by the introduction of Smart
Indexing. Vintage Cloud developed this
software that uses AI and machine
learning to automatically generate a
load of new metadata for easy search
and categorization. For material that
has already been digitized, Smart
Indexing is available as a standalone
app for automatic content tagging -
increasing the monetization potential
of assets while saving time.
"Using Smart Indexing's automatic
tagging helps categorize and curate
content, meaning that revenue
can be generated from film assets
quickly, easily and seamlessly," added
Englesson. "The keyframes generated
in Smart Indexing are an easy and
quick way for users to make sure their
film assets are found by the right
buyers. They also enable customers to
search through their own archives and
organize their libraries."
Smart Indexing is capable of
delivering a tagging result in a fraction
of a second. AI allows Smart Indexing
to automatically recognize over 11,000
objects, scenes and events.
