New RefleX sprocket hole sensor upgrade
for all MovieStuff Universal motion picture gates!

The MovieStuff Universal Home Movie Scanner is a great archiving tool. Simple to use and clear, precise results have made it the number one selling
true frame by frame desk top scanner in the world. And now the newly developed RefleX sprocket hole sensor has made it even easier to use. The original design of the Universal required the user to "tune" the sprocket hole sensor to accommodate differences in film density, such as clear edge film found in commercial 16mm prints or film that might have clear or semi transparent imagery that appears between the sprocket holes such as on old regular 8mm film. This obviously requires a certain level of skill and also takes up precious time during a busy day of transfers. The new RefleX sensor requires no "tuning" or calibration. Why? While the original UV LED was a pass-through sensor which could be affected by film density, the RefleX uses a reflective beam that bounces off the film surface and back into the sensor. As a result, it does not matter whether the film is clear, dark, light or all of the above! The RefleX sensor never needs adjustment and (as far as we can tell) never misses a frame. In addition, we've simplified the film path with new guides that have new side springs for solid side to side registration. This virtually eliminates side drift, even on slightly shrunken film. Plus, the film is now supported on the emulsion side, which means no focus shifts, even when you have changes in film thickness.

We are now offering RefleX modifications to all Universal motion picture gates. The price per gate modification is normally $1500 plus $80 domestic return shipping and $150 international return shipping. But, for a limited time, we are offering the modification for a flat per gate price of $1100, including return shipping. Additional discounts may also be available if doing multiple gates at one time.
