The article was a review, not a comparison. The only competing system 
that is mentioned is Baselight, and only in passing at the end of the 
article. Clearly the reviewer is a Discreet fan, but frankly I don't 
see any need to mention every other product in the marketplace in every 
article. Quantel gets plenty of press and publicity on its own. 
Besides, I think most of us see Lustre and Baselight (and Silicon 
Color, for that matter) more as "dedicated" color correction systems 
than full finishing systems, which is the general perception of IQ. In 
other words, they compete more against DaVinci and Pandora than they do 
against Quantel and Avid. At least I've always seen them that way.
