There seems to be a mistake in the Wikipedia entry on Color grading
where this paragraph is written, defining the Kinescope as "the
device on which a film image was transferred to video." If someone
here has an account on Wikipedia and would like to submit the
edit ... or tell me that Kinescopes can also be telecines...
-----from the URL above:
Main article: Telecine
and Telecine Controllers
With the advent of television, broadcasters quickly realized the
limitations of live broadcasts and they turned to utilizing film
transferred to video to broadcast already produced movies as well as
photographing new shows that could then be aired at different times
in different time zones. The heart of the system was the Kinescope,
the device on which a film image was transferred to video.
-----end section from Wikipedia. The footnote  refers to George
Cvjetnicanin's and Richard H. Kallenberger's 1994 book "Film into
----there is another reference that I'm wondering about: "Color
correction control systems started with the Rank Cintel TOPSY
(Telecine Operations Programming System) in 1978." Didn't the
Dubner color corrector predate TOPSY? perhaps not. And Dubner
didn't actually "control" the film chain or telecine if the transport
is included. The second  footnote is ibid.
