Actually, we've been using it for over 3 years now. We make negative
cutting cassettes (with key window) after a show's auto assembly (done on
DCT). This is possible because we encode the VITC into the D1 data stream.
We built a digital data inserter in 1992 specifically for this purpose
(when we went all D1 in our telecine rooms). Although Evertz showed a
digital inserter over a year ago, I really don't know whether its ever been
released. Does anyone else do data insertion in D1??
