Dear David,
You are very wrong when you state that "there are many products that
will do the task of tailslates just as well." as I'm not talking about
tailslates at all - rather a process that eliminates the need for them.

The timecode on film generator is available on PANAVISION, ARRI and AATON
and if used can save everyone a lot of time and money.

As a DP and one who owns a telecine facility - nothing urkes me more than
having to stuff around whatching and waiting while colourists buggerise
about with keyboards, timecode slates and shuttling backwards and forwards
over my negative just to get the sound in sync with the picture!

Call me impatient - but it is 1997 - and the sound should just be there!
