“Alan offers a rare combination of insight and experience,”
said Electric Pictures president Grace McKay. “He has worked at the forefront
of technology for many years and enjoys universal respect among broadcasters,
producers, motion picture studios and post production facilities. He understands
the value in the services we provide and will make an excellent ambassador for

as one of few remaining providers of high-quality telecine services—a process
used to convert film to digital video media. The process is fast, reliable and
cost effective, making it very appealing to organizations with large film
Electric Pictures operates Thomson/DFT Shadow telecines,
augmented by a variety of film handling and processing technologies. The
company can transfer virtually any film format (35mm, 16mm, Super8 and
Regular8) to SD, HD and 2K digital and video formats, making it suitable for
television, DVD, Blu-ray and other high-end applications.
“Very few companies provide telecine services today and yet
there are millions of feet of film in vaults that need to be converted to a
format where it can be preserved and put to commercial use,” Davis said.
