Super 16 Fiberscreens (Fiber Optic Viewing Screens) for Arriflex 16SR I, II, III

All Super-16 conversions of the Arriflex 16SR must include a replacement of conversion of the existing standard-16 Fibescreen (Fiber-Optic Viewing Screen or “ground glass”) to the Super-16 format.

There are two options available:

1) Replace the existing Fiberscreen with a new Super-16 format Fiberscreen. New Fiberscreens are made by ARRI for the Arriflex 16SR-3, and they are fully compatible with all Super-16 converted 16SR-I or 16SR-II. Price is $1,350.00 USD if ordered separately. If ordered from CinemaTechnic in conjuction with a Super-16 conversion of your 16SR, savings of up to 35% are available on new Fiberscreens.

2) Convert the existing Fiberscreen to Super-16 format. This is a very high precision process of removing the existing format markings and electrodepositing new markings. Cinematechnic offers a service to convert your existing standard-16 fiberscreen to Super-16. We have contracted with the finest optical facility in the U.S., with extensive experience in this area, to perform these conversions. Price is $449.00 USD, plus shipping. Turn around time is approximately four weeks.

NOTE: If you want your 16SR fiberscreen converted, don’t wait untill the last minute. There is only one facility in the world that can do this work and turn around times are approximate and can be as much as 6-8 weeks during peak demand.

We also usually have at least one converted fiberscreen in stock, which avoids the wait. These fiberscreens are priced at $525.00, if you provide a 16SR fiberscreen with any markings as a “core”. Without a “core” the price is $795.00.

We also have a very limited supply of original ARRI SR3 Super 16 fiberscreens in stock. They are listed above. These are available without a “core”. Please do not hesitate if you are interested as they are going fast.

Unfortunately, due to it’s unique curved design, the Aaton LTR fiberscreen cannot be converted. You must purchase an Aaton Super 16 fiberscreen. We have one available at the moment.

The design of these format markings is similar to the fiber optics viewing screens for the new Arriflex 16SR-3 Advanced, which does not have a lightmeter. They do not include the dots on the left edge for the light meter needle. All format markings have crosshairs. They do not incorporate a shaded area around the format marking.

    The following format markings are available:
