My experience with our two URSAs and their standard skid plate is that they
were remarkably stable East to West. We could often avoid pin registration
when they were new. Hard to believe, I know but with fresh, properly
developed negative stock they look really good.

Kevin Shaw: >> Now with stabilisers on Henry, and SGI software I think it
really is good enough.

Quantel showed 'ALF' on the HAL at this fall's LA World Media Expo
(formerly SMPTE). This is tracking software that repositions the frame to
follow a single target region. It has just started shipping as an upgrade
to V3.0x Henry.
