These pictures were scanned on a custom VistaVision motion picture scanner at Pacific Title Digital at 3072 x 1536 resolution, then converted from the original Cineon 10-bit per color per pixel format to 8-bit TIFF and downrez'd by a factor of 2. A bit of cropping later and another downrez step and they became JPEG files that are shown here.
The scanner is one the historic III (Triple-I) scanners and recorders that were used on movies dating back to "Tron", "The Last Starfighter", and "2010". The scanners and recorders are now out of service.
