Yes I agree Mike, I might have over reacted a bit sorry, I wrote a long
thing to reply but at the end just thought to say that if anyone was going
to talk about a " new " D.I. product and was going to compare to any other
product, it would only be fair to do so with one that was out and working.
In any case, I think I did over react a bit. I'm just such a big fan of
companies that listen to the clients and do what they say they will do.
The I.Q was light years ahead and still continues to evolve.

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.
