When I started at KCOP in Hollywood, they had the only 16mm cartridge  
machine I'd seen outside of NAB. And it was still in operation when I  
left in 1979. It was paired up with a TK 28. It recall that it chewed  
up film at times. Wasn't nearly as friendly to commercials as the ACR  
25 videotape cart machine, the true "cash register" for the station.
