The Auricon 144-degree TVT shutter is a fine thing, but note that you
are only capturing one of the two fields of NTSC video, which cuts in
half the vertical resolution. A true kinescope recording camera,
like the Palmer, had a super-fast pulldown and a 288-degree shutter,
so captured both fields. DuArt still uses one for kinescopes.

As for A-1, will the dying-off of reversal print stocks leave them
any work to do? Processing B&W reversal original, sure, but what
else? Thanks, Kodak...
