I don't want to assume but this statement makes it sound as if BMD is going to try to do to the film scanning market what they did to the Color market...
"The film market is in the middle of massive changes and how film is used is changing everyday. What hasn’t changed is the acknowledgement that film is an extremely creative way to capture images. This acquisition gives Blackmagic Design the ability to combine our vision and expertise with Cintel technology to provide the best technology for artists using film, more efficient and affordable ways to bring film into a digital workflow and better ways to archive and restore existing archive film worldwide,” continued Petty."
It will be interesting to see what comes of this for sure. The film scanning / telecine services are incredibly expensive which usually becomes the deal killer with shooting film on a lot of sets. But with film cameras being as inexpensive as they are now and film processing being very affordable and of course BMD owning DaVinci Resolve which you could capture LOG DPX's directly into the system this makes for quite an interesting acquisition to say the least. Exciting times for filmmakers of Digital and Film mediums. Its all about choices friends.
