Ted,



Rank Cintel Telecine numbers

 
Pure “Educated Guess”


Around 1000 MKIIIs of all versions  from original MKIII Jumpscan to MKIIIC EnhancedDigiscan 4:2:2  
 
(35 MKIII Jumpscans in 1 year went to Nigeria!)
 
Of course several MKIIIs in the USAwere converted to Turbo Telecines.
 
Around 40 ADS -1 and 2 Cintel Line Array CCD scanner, thefirst to use an IR channel to detect and conceal scratches !
 
MKIII ED, 2 were built for UK Sky TV
 
MKIIIHD, around 8 were built, all went to the USA
 
Around 360 Ursas all versions Ursa,Gold, Diamond etc
 
About 5 Klone 2K Line array CCD. Pin registered scanners
 
Around 70 C Reality HD / Data  telecines
 
Around 20 DSX Scanners, 4K units based on C Reality.
 
About 35 Ditto CCD Area Array Data scanners.
 
I have no idea how many MKII or Photoconductive telecinesCintel were made.
 
There were as well a few Rascal and Casllisto telecinesbased on HD modified MKIIIs. 
 
Cheers
 
Peter
