I notice Rob you have perhaps a list of the switch functions of your
below the middle keypad. As I recall, and this could have been
the configuration at Action Video Hollywood where I worked, #2 was
(off was positive); #3.... hm, I forget.. but I think #7 was freeze;
Tosh do you remember, or Bob Festa, Terry Goins? Top left of screen
frame count; top right fps/Hz; just left of READ/WRITE flag are the
flags; PAN L means linear pan (N was nonlinear); does it appear in
that corrections for events 0 and 1440 were not saved, as there is a
instead of a "C" at right of their entries? It appears switches 2,3
are engaged; can you advise Rob what the row of dashes to the right
mean (SoftWare version? or is that where another mode of the "Switches"
is shown.)? READ/WRITE mode are obvious functions of the software if
know how a Dubner works; ModRead came along later, engaged by "Shift
Read/Write" and there was either a ModWrite or ModPreview mode as
differences not standing the test of memory at the moment.
We always called it the Dubner, but as H. Dubner and his company were
better-known for their character generator, what was the official
name of the
color corrector? thanks in advance.
