Re: Whiz? Wiz?


The Wiz was the predecessor to the da Vinci Classic and was built in 1982
by VTA Technologies in Ft. Lauderdale.  VTA Technologies later became da
Vinci Systems, Inc.

The Wiz was the first VTA system to have a customized external control
panel and was also the first color corrector with internal primary and
secondary processing.  Prior to that, the primaries in the telecine were
used.  The Wiz had 10 vector patented secondary color correction and could
remote control an RCA TK28 and Bosch (BTS) FDL60.  The first two systems
were bought by Editel, Chicago, which at the time used Bosch (BTS) FDL60s.
