Color scientists, printer manufacturers, mathematicians, statisticians and color computing experts in many disciplines are now demonstrating the far-reaching benefits of multi-spectral scanning for applications in medicine, ecology, manufacturing and industrial processes. Media Matters proposes toapply multi-spectral imaging techniques to the preservation and digital uses of motion picture film.
Media Matters is making FILMIC a multinational multidisciplinary project. For example, working closely with color scientists and color computing experts at the Norwegian Colour and Visual Computing Laboratory at the Gjøvik University College. Media Matters principals are long-time members of the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers and the Association of Moving Image Archivists.
The FILMIC project will be extended to qualified researchers and institutions with an interest in preserving film in the best, most scientific, and extensible ways known to current technology.
