NanoTech has acquired two Director UltraHD 4K motion picture film-scanning systems from Lasergraphics, which it will use at the 4K Studios new facilities in San Francisco.

NanoTech recently introduced an UltraHD 4K streaming media player, the Nuvola NP-H1, and is releasing the nVidia Tegra 4, which is based on the Nuvola NP-1 and NP-C players, this quarter.

"We have invested heavily into acquiring content now that we have the ability to stream UltraHD 4K content into the home," said NanoTech CEO Jeff Foley. "We tested several solutions, and the quality of output we were able to achieve with the Lasergraphics solution was unmatched. We are have already queued up several customers and are looking forward to bringing the 'Future of Television' to homes this fall."

The Director's 4K resolution, high dynamic range and optical pin registration features were key factors in the decision, the company said.

Steve Klenk, president of Galileo Digital, the exclusive distributor for Lasergraphics, added: "We are very excited for the opportunity to work with the NanoTech team. By combining our phenomenal film scanners with the 4K Studios proprietary post-production process, the results are absolutely stunning. Consumers are going to finally get the UltraHD 4K content to display on their new TV sets this year."
