SONY Telecine

        I note that several people keep asking about whether SONY have
produced a Telecine. I can't categorically answer the question, but CAN say
that SONY own US patent 5,428,387. The inventors are John Galt and James
Pearman, both of Glendale, California.
        The patent has some rather neat diagrams of a 2-box system (Fig 1)
and the scanning system (Fig 2-6)
        The telecine is a 2-D CCD array (i.e. area array) system.
         Needless to say,
