Sony's Interest in the Telecine Market
Dear Mr. Lingelbach,
Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Stephen DiFranco and
I am the Director of Post Production Marketing at Sony Electronics
Recently Mr. S. Kusaka (General Manger of our Post Production Group in
Atsugi, Japan) requested information on the United States Telecine
market. He is specifically interested in learning if there is demand
for a new digital component switcher for telecine rooms.
The product that we are considering manufacturing for world wide sales
is a 1.5 M/E component digital product. First and second level color
correctors would also be included. If produced it would have about 4
inputs and 4:4:4 processing.
We recently completed a research project and called many companies
providing telecine services. Our research provided excellent
quantitative data on the number of facilities, the equipment that they
own and the principal application (MOVs, Features to Tape, Super 16 vs
35mm ect.) But, these reports can not provide a clear indication of
the passion in the industry of a new digital switcher.
It was mentioned that you "manage" a WEB page for the telecine
business. If you deem it appropriate please feel free to invite your
associates to send their thoughts on the subject to me at
(difrancs at ccmail.nhq.sony.com). You are most welcomed to state that
we are considering developing a product for the telecine market but,
we first wish to have some subjective data to apply to the
quantitative research that we have already published and forward to
our associates in Atsugi.
Your help is greatly appreciated. My phone number at Sony is
