KODAK VISION Color Print Film 2383/3383

Clear, rich images on the theatre screen.

The VISION Color Print Film from Kodak has the great look you associate with Kodak films, with rich blacks and neutral highlights. The film is durable and resistant to scratches and dirt. This color print film is worthy of the KODAK VISION Film family name.

KODAK VISION Color Print Film / 2383/3383 sensitometry (characteristic curve) is different from EASTMAN EXR Color Print Film 2386, 3386. The upper scale is slightly higher in D-max, resulting in an improved black on projection. The toe areas of the three sensitometric curves are matched more closely than 2386 Film, producing more neutral highlights on projection.

2383/3383 Film is coated on a new ESTAR base featuring proprietary Kodak technology that replaces rem-jet with a process-surviving, anti-static layer, and scratch-resistant backing layer. This film has an efficient antihalation layer under the emulsion layers, using patented solid particle dyes that are decolorized and removed during processing.

Laboratory benefits include:

  • Polyester base - greater tear strength, durability, dimensional stability, and archival keeping.
  • Elimination of rem-jet (no carbon black or prebath- soluble binder) - potential for reduced chemical and water usage in processing, and improved cleanliness on high speed printers (less white dirt).
  • Process-surviving anti-static layer along with UV dye - protection from static marks prior to printing
  • Process-surviving anti-static layer - reduced dirt attraction to processed prints and static protection prior to processing
  • Process-surviving lubricant - better transport characteristics for processed film
  • Patented antihalation dye technology - superior halation protection (no colored fringes in titles), and improved safelight edge fog protection for digital soundtrack area
  • Patented emulsion technology - improved fades and dissolves, less propensity to safelight fog, better blacks, and improved subtitling
  • Optimized tone scale / New photographic technology - improved blacks and more neutral highlights on projection
  • Fundamental improvements to the base - improved laser subtitling

Benefits for distributors and exhibitors include:

  • Polyester base, elimination of rem-jet, process-surviving ant-static layer along with UV dye, scratch resistant backing layer, and process-surviving lubricant - cleaner, more durable prints
  • Patented antihalation dye technology - no colored fringes in titles, and improved safelight edgefog protection for digital soundtrack
  • Patented emulsion technology - improved fades and dissolves, less propensity to safelight fog, better blacks, improved subtitling, and less lab-to-lab processing variability for one look worldwide
  • Optimized tone scale / New photographic technology - improved blacks, and more neutral highlights on projection
  • Fundamental improvements to the base - improved laser subtitling
