Sondor Resonances optical soundtrack scanning system

The Sondor Resonances offers best possible transfer for variable area and variable density optical tracks from print and negatives. No other product solution comes close. Sondor Resonances is based on a CCD line-scan camera combined with digital image processing enabling the operator to remove optical defects of the soundtrack at the time of transfer before it is converted into audio.
