Hola Ricardo y Rob...

Looks like the Avica is still on the market.


There's an online manual for your reference.

A little googling for "Vecta stillstore from Avica" turned up a  
number of references to its use:

There are some major players in LA that purchased it a while ago,  
including Kodak's Cinesite for use with a Spirit Datacine at 2K on  
Pleasantville in 1999/2000

See http://digitalcontentproducer.com/mag/video_avica_technologys_vecta/

FotoKem had 11 units in place as of Sept. 2000:

Lucasfilm used an HD version on the set of Star Wars II in 2002.

No connection to any company mentioned...

Hope this is of some help or interest.
