Thanks to all who supplied info on this topic. Yes we are somewhat serious
about resurrecting one as a quick-and-dirty monitor calibration check.

Special thanks to Ralph Sergeant at Film Technologies who contacted us
today with a loaner IRT unit to check out. A very close cousin, this unit
has a 2-position "brightness" control on the illuminator, whereas the
"Graficon" had a variable control, so we may still ultimately look for the
real McCoy. All those folks who said they may have one.....keep looking.

The loaner is great in the meantime though, Ralph! Next week we're going to
check it against a Philips!

Thanks again for the impressive response from TIG correspondents
here....eight postings in the space of a day.....whew.

And while I think about it, how about a TIG festivity at SMPTE, Rob?

Regards and cold ones to all
