If only Kreines-Keleshian Humor Inc. could put an end to the barcode
reading anxiety thread!
This anxiety has been fueled by readers originally designed for
laboratory roll handling only (excellent at Keycode/Neg-frame indexing,
but poor at Keycode/VideoTC timing). These readers (still in use in
telecine facilities) are spreading suspicion over the entire Keycode
chain, to the point that even film manufacturers stand accused!
Though Keylink does read moribund key#s (Dave Kelechian); though
it does 'a superb job at timing keycode in a video environment'
(Christopher Bacon); and though it masters edited/spliced negative
uncorrelated Keycodes (JC Soret), it can't cure the
Barcode Confidence Loss syndrome overnight.
Given that situation, the next Keylink software will identify
the keycode burn-in windows with an Aaton signature: the negative
cutter will know for sure that his proofing video tape is edited
from Keylink timed dailies.
(This mail coming too close to an ad, more on the subject in the next
Aaton vm_lowdown to the TIG).
