Hi, I need some help trying to calculate digitisation and restoration job. We are taking care physical video archive for a company (cant mention the name here) and planning to digitise their video archive. We will start with the recent years video material and go back year by year. Source material is from HDCAM SR, HDCAM, Digibeta, DV/DVCAM/DvcPro, BetaSP, U-Matic, 1"C tapes. Also 16/35mm film but that is another part. All the tape decks are available in-house. We are planning to invest in Phoenix system. Digitise the whole tape to BMD UltraStudio as 10-bit Uncompressed SD or HD file. The newly shot material only needs de-interlace (maybe some de-noise, crop the black edges and keep it 720x576 for SD and 1920x1080 as HD. Archive it as UnCompressed to LTFS LTO-7 and keep the ProRes 422 HQ on Online storage. (We already have workflow for logging and archiving, there we are getting recent material as digital files from Production houses, mostly has ProRes 4444 or 422 HQ, I know this is not future proof but that is what we are getting from the production houses) Lot of films on Digibeta tapes are once transferred from 16/35mm film to 1"C or other analogue formats until those gets on DigiBeta. Some films are still on 16/35mm rolls left in the archive and for those we will look in future the scanning & restoration possibilities. Digibeta tapes with sources coming from 16/35mm films needs more restoration work. Everything from Dust/Scratch/Flicker removal, de-grain, stabilisation, fix the joints and also digital errors, like drop frames, line fixes and color fix. My Question is: Can someone, already working with Phoenix system, can give me estimated time for this kind of work. Like how much 1 min SD material can take to do the treatments like that and make it ready for re-mastering. Is 1 min film is equal to 20-30 min restoration work 50-60 mins or more? Also what is the estimated charges for this kind of work? These are the industrial films and some TVC back from the days. TVC might take more time in restoration as those are more important to the customer. The investment will be around 70K EUR for the setup and this project will continue 3-5 years. Any other suggestion will also be appreciated and feel free to ask question. English is not my native language but hopefully I have been able to explain the workflow.
