In conventional approaches, 3:2 pulldown correction is done simply by repeating original film frames every 1/8 second. These repeated frames are what cause “judder,” the stuttering, jerky movement that can be observed in motion pans. With Hitachi Reel60™, a patented new technique is applied that accurately and automatically eliminates the jerky motion. By creating interpolated frames based on the original film images, the Reel60™ processing technology smoothes out the movement and correctly matches the original motion. The result is extremely smooth, pure motion, whether it’s a passing vehicle or a camera pan from across the screen or side-to-side.
