Re: PAL into NTSC Transfers

Hi Steven,

Although some of the high-tech wizardry being talked about at places like
Sony and DigitalVision may someday allow simultaneous PAL and NTSC recordings
of the same telecine transfer, using some high-def format that can be
electronically downconverted to either standard, you simply aren't going to
find that sort of technology in the field yet.  Ampex had a special DCT
system, and Sony demo-ed one using D-1 VTRs at last year's NAB, that recorded
at 24 fps and then allowed for playback of the same master in both PAL and
NTSC standards (but not at the same time).  Again, you aren't going to find
this type of equipment in your average facitity.
