Rancho Cucamonga, CA, April 14, 2004 …CELCO (www.celco.com), the leader in digital film recording systems, announced that Capital FX, London, England, has purchased a third FURY film recorder and put it into immediate production.
Capital FX is a digital and optical effects company offering a variety of services for film post-production, and utilizes the latest technology in addition to traditional film techniques. Capital FX specializes in front and end titles, visual effects work, trailers, and foreign versions. With CELCO film recorders, the company can accommodate all digital film-out requirements on multiple film stocks.
Capital FX added the third FURY because of the increasing amount of client output for both feature films and shorts from DV, Digi-beta, HD, and scanned S16mm and 35mm data it is receiving from clients. The FURY’s ability to use virtually any film stock, plus its quality and superior sharpness, were additional reasons why Capital FX invested in the third FURY. As the new CELCO film recorders are added, they are seamlessly calibrated so that Capital FX can use each FURY
Jim Davey, Director of Digital Services at Capital FX, states, “The FURY has proven itself in our demanding production setting. The superior sharpness of the FURY, combined with its unprecedented speed, has given Capital FX a clear competitive advantage. The look from the CELCO film recorder is the closest to the original shot.” He continues, “The reliability of the CELCO film recorders, combined with the unparalleled support of the local CELCO European technical staff, makes continuing to invest in CELCO film recorders an easy decision.”
John Constantine, Director of Marketing for CELCO, comments, “Capital FX’s clients in the UK and Europe have demanding time schedules. Having multiple FURYs, which are superior in both speed and sharpness to laser recorders, allows Capital FX to not only meet these short time schedules but also provide the highest quality images to their clientele.”
CELCO was founded in
1950 by John M. Constantine Sr. as an engineering laboratory dedicated to
high resolution display technology. CELCO’s innovations in the field of
electron beam control soon made the company a leading producer of electron
optics including deflection yokes and focus coils used in high resolution
display systems. Its display components have been used for an abundance of
military and civilian applications in everything from fighter jets, flight
simulators, medical imaging systems, electron beam welders, to the space
shuttle. CELCO also became known for its lab standard test equipment
including high performance deflection amplifiers and precision display
systems. The technologies evolved into the production of complete digital
imaging systems starting in the 1970s with large format satellite imaging
systems to the first motion picture digital film recorder used for
Disney’s TRON in the early 1980s.
