Blackmagic Design has acquired the intellectual property and all aspects of Cintel’s entire portfolio of film scanning products, following the liquidation of Cintel International earlier in 2012. This includes all of the IP, name and brand ownership and product development rights for the Cintel diTTo and dataMill digital scanners lines, URSA, C-Reality, DSX, and Millennium telecine lines as well as imageMill data management products. With this acquisition Blackmagic Design moves into yet another Digital Cinema field after the announcement of a new Digital Motion Picture camera at NAB and the previously acquired DaVinci color correction technology. They’ve come a long way from only making inexpensive converter boxes just a few years back.
