Hi Ken,

The Quantel booth did indeed appear to be less crowded than Discreet's at
Siggraph this year.  As for the reason why, I don't think it is quite so
complicated as interest or lack thereof.  Quantel gets the award, IMHO, for
having the most low-key booth at the show.  It was a big, brightly lit space
mostly empty except for a counter, a few signs and tablets and monitors, and a
corner walled off to display Domino--their cornerstone product.  Nothing going
"kaboom" on the screens, no loudmouth announcers, nobody prancing around in
skin-tight outfits.  People who wanted to learn about Quantel's products were
there, but those just looking for a diversion passed it by.

Best regards,
Christopher Bacon
