	It looks like Kscope is very very popular in the US and UK because all
american or british DP's & directors doing telecine here in Paris ask for it,
but since there is no TK with Kscope here they have to do it afterwards which
is frustrating for the colorist, sometimes they simply go to London.
	My question is: is there some kind of magig box that could do the same
job than Kscope? I know the answer but it is worth asking anyway.
