Additionally I am a Film maker who is trying to bring TK more in house to 
reduce my capital expenditures and I do have some technical knowledge and 
ability (ex. I used to run a Scanning Electron Microscope at a job in the 
past) so right now it makes sense for to spend a little time getting these 
machines going because the capital is not there and we are not trying to 
compete with the hi end Boston market (there is a URSA and a Shadow in Boston).

One of my big questions is wether the Quattroscan is a better unit than the 
Digi4 it is 4:4:4 and the Digi4 is 4:2:2 so my initial assumption is that 
it is the better picture am I wrong?
