The Kinograph is a DIY film digitizing machine, completed by artist and cinema historian Matthew Epler, as thesis project at NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program in the Spring of 2013.

Kinograph is an open source project that makes film digitization affordable and scaleable. Using components available on the internet, a few 3D printed parts, and a consumer level camera, the machine digitizes 35mm, 16mm or 8mm film at high definition resolutions with sound.

Kinograph uses software to stabilize a series of captured images (Processing + OpenCV) and extract optical sound (AEO Sound).
