Film Recorders - graphics hardware

It is a graphical output device for transferring digital images to photographic films. The easiest film recorders classically work through displaying the image on a grayscale Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) placed in front of a photographic camera. For colour images, the green, red and blue channels are individually displayed upon the similar grayscale Cathode Ray Tube, and exposed to the similar piece of film by a filter of the suitable colour. Such approach yields best resolution and colour quality than one could acquire with a colour Cathode Ray Tube. The three filters are typically mounted on a motor-driven wheel. The filter wheel, and also the camera's aperture, shutter and film motion mechanism are typically controlled through the recorder's electronics or and the driving software.

Higher-quality film recorders termed as LVT i.e. Light Value Transfer utilize laser to write the image directly on the film, one pixel at one time. This method is best appropriated to print to large-format media as poster-size prints. Moreover, the exposed film is developed and printed via regular photographic chemical processing. Self-developing or Polaroid film can be utilized for immediate feedback.

Film recorders are utilized in digital printing to produce master negatives for offset and other bulk printing processes. They are also utilized to generate the master copies of movies that utilize computer animation or the other particular effects based upon digital image processing. As sample, archiving and small-volume reproduction as well as film recorders have been rendered obsolete through modern printers which generate photographic-quality hardcopies directly upon plain paper.

Film recorders were also usually utilized to produce slides for slide projectors; although this call for is now largely met through video projectors which project images straight by a computer to a screen.

Film recorders were in between the earliest computer graphics output devices. Currently, film recorders are primarily utilized in the motion picture film-out method for the ever rising amount of digital intermediate work being finished. Though important advances in huge venue video projection alleviates the requirement to output to film, there keeps a deadlock among the motion picture studios and theatre owners over who must pay for the price of these extremely costly projection systems. It combined along with the raise in international and independent film production, will maintain the demand for film recording steady for at least a decade.
