On the back of a new installation at Cinecittà in Rome, Italy, the Sondor Versa audio scanner is set to take centre stage at the DFT stand in Hall 6.

Providing the ability to digitise optical audio and create digital audio files in software, the machine has been installed at the Cinecittà Luce Archivio, which holds a large volume of image and audio content under its responsibility as the operative branch of the ministry of culture of Italy.

DFT says its Sondor Resonance option provides a way to preserve fragile and critical materials at optimum quality.

Adriano Fabio, Sound Editor and Restoration Specialist at Cinecittà, said: “This machine was a must-have for our sound transfer and digitisation work. We have a total of eight head blocks (optical and magnetic) which allow us to handle any material at the best quality whether it is 16mm, 17.5mm or 35mm. The Sondor Versa and Resonances enables us to preserve and enhance our archival materials, many of which are part of the UNESCO World Heritage.”
