C-Reality comes into view

The folks from Cintel have been going to facilities this week to talk
about the progress on C-Reality.

It seems they expect to have a HDTV capable machine at NAB with delivery
projected for 3rd quarter 1998.  The specifications thus far are
impressive and it should give the Phillips folks a serious run for their
money (and we are talking a ton of money here!)

The machine will include 525, 625, and HDTV outputs at real time and
data (real 2k x 1500 scanning)at somewhere around 4 - 8 fps. All this
with internal color correction (primary and secondary)

They also mentioned the Turbo III (or Turbo HD) which will be
essentially the equivalent to the MK III HD of which there are 3 in
Hollywood now. For those who want to do only video mastering in HD and
not mess with data. This machine would be about 1/2 the cost of
Phillips, Sony, or Cintel full line offering!

Any takers???
