What is Digital ICE?

Digital Image Correction and Enhancement is used on transparent film scans to detect scratches and dust using specialized scanners that utilize an infrared (IR) lamp. Infrared light passes through the slide or negative, but is not able to penetrate dust particles. In addition, the longer wavelengths also make physical distortions to the film apparent so scratches and other irregularities can also be detected with accuracy. Powerful software then interpolates the defective pixels resulting in a perfect, seamless image.
