Are you referring to Rank upgrading the machine, or possibly to Options'
"Regal V Enhancement" package? In any case, it is certainly do-able, at
a cost, and not to be taken lightly. That's where all those Turbo 2's
come from, after all.
And yes, with a Quattroscan 4:4:4 Framestore, for example, the quality
indeed surpasses that of 4:2:2. It's 10-bit full-bandwidth RGB,
with 601 out, and it makes beautiful pictures.
I know about the Options package, because I have recently decided to
return to freelance engineering, and I am their installation engineer for
the package. It includes: Meta-Speed/RTS Plus Kit, Digital Deflection,
Tube Enhancements AFD Platinum CRT, and Quattroscan. Options will be at
NAB, Hall S2, Booth #13256.
