The most important metric for ...

This syndrome (the film emits a acidy, vinegar smell…thus the name), is an indicator that the film is breaking down. The film becomes brittle and shrinks which distorts the images. Quality of film suffers and important information is less readable. The latest in film scanning technology ...
