Yes indeed, eventually the leaning curve wins! Is that "digital stupid 8"
(to D1 or DCT)? Probably the same type of clients that bump VHS to DCT. You
know the ones that want the Fisher Price video camera look?  ;-)

I've heard people quote estimates for some jobs involving lots of clients,
that the time needed to transfer is something like three times running time
multiplied by the number of clients in the room! ;-) Does anyone have any
theories or "rules of thumb about this?
