Hi Arturo,

Older analog daVincis (the "Classic" and the "Rennaissance") can operate
either pre-store or post-store depending on how they are installed.  Just be
aware if you buy one with intentions of using it pre-store, the input board
is specific to the telecine--e.g. it will be a "Rank" board or a "FDL"
board, and you will need the correct one.  Technically, the "Classic" and
the "Rennaissance" are similar, but the latter was put together a lot
better.  All of daVinci's digital color correctors are designed to be used
post-store only.

The analog Corporate Communications "Sunburst" series of color correctors
were also usually operated pre-store.

There was a lot of rationale for pre-store color correctors before we had
fast DSP and cheap memory, but I don't think anybody misses them much in
this day and age.

Good luck,
Christopher Bacon
