USA Today has an interesting article on Lowry Digital Images, which was hired to clean up the original “Star Wars” film footage for an upcoming four-disc DVD box set. “The most popular movies are often, by far and away, in the worst shape,” owner John Lowry says. “They have been printed more often and been duplicated more often, and each of those passes adds scuffs, dirt, scratches and the like.” Lowry said his company used 600 networked Power Mac G5s with the equivalent of 378 terabytes of hard disk storage to complete the cleaning up process.
