Hi Rick,
I think I was pretty clear that I was discussing mechanical/optical systems.
I'm aware that after portraying advantages of the optical capabilities of
the Vialta in repositioning/resizing images as a way to avoid the degrading
effects of using DVE type manipulation Sony is no longer positioning those
capabilities as more then preliminary setup adjustments. If you read my
earlier postings you'll see that I did not discuss the programmable
limitations of the mechanical/optical systems - just the difficulty in
trying to use them in doing the day to day functions that colorists need and
producing the kind of imagery that is expected of a modern telecine suite.
