David,

Actually, VistaVision is usually 1:1.5 (some studios, in the 50's, cropped it
to 1:1.85), so it lends itself nicely to video transfers -- at least
theoretically.  

The problem is that most telecines can't handle it in one pass, except for
Crest's machines and a new machine that will be announced in a few months...
