Keylink version 9.x makes sync-sound transfers easier than ever for film codes, digislates and standard slates.
Keylink is currently the only contact-free, 100% frame accurate Keycode reader: no dust generation while shuttling freshly processed negatives! Often used for trouble-shooting in the telecine room, it is the only film code reader to give the colorist permanent monitoring of physical transfer parameters. Only Keylink can read the standard AatonCode-I and the new AatonCode-II matrixes (patent pending) recorded in Aaton, Panavision, Moviecam and some Arri cameras.
Keylink offered the first operational 3line Vitc system - now becoming common practice - which on top of the standard VideoTC, carries Keycode and Audio TC right into NLEs.
Keylink is to date the only system that can accurately identify 24fps film images in the PAL world under the 24+1 pull-down system. It also handles real-time 23.98 fps shooting for NTSC and 24 fps film timecode on telecines running at 30 fps for a 25% reduction in telecine transfer time.
Keylink simultaneously handles Keycode and Acmade; it makes 3perf 35mm Keycode reading a process compatible with the 4perf standard. It generates FleX, Ftl, ATN and ALE transfer lists. ATN stores Keycode and Acmade, RGB transfer points, camera TC and auxiliary TC for music-video play-backs.
Keylink FileLogger and LogAlone, its standalone companion, offer the most powerful database logging system which automatically eliminates overlaps, quickly modifies event in/out points by moving their three codes together, allows event creation and audio TC modifications after the transfer session.
Several Aaton innovations offer telecine operators a unique working tool: Autocatch delivers accurate Keycode and Audio TC windows as of the very first image of the take; Dynamic VirtualSlates insert the codes and comments attached to a take while showing the 'A1 to D3' pulldown sequence; Ready-to-Roll tells the colorist where to find the tapes or disks containing the audio of the film; Scriptlink automatically inserts script supervisor's comments; PassOne/PassTwo saves hundred of supervised transfer hours; and above all, Instasync speeds up sync-sound transfers like no other system around.
