the first 2 years of the TIG messages are lost to humankind. One day they may turn up, in a cave known only to the TIG founder, located not far from the place he watched, along with fellow hiker Terry Richter, two Ovis Canadensis (Bighorn Sheep) grazing on a steep hillside far up the East Fork of the San Gabriel River.

I logged on the the TLC BBS and read that Jim Lindelien has sold the TLC product to daVinci Corp. This is only the product and Jim is going to keep the Time Logic company and will continue to support warranty and service contract obligations from before the sale.

There was no discussion of what daVinci was going to do with the product. I have very mixed feelings on the subject. I hope to talk to the people in the booth at SMPTE and maybe will have something to report later.

It seems to me DaVinci has always tried to position their color correctors as "the complete environment", not acknowledging that a TLC was needed. I wonder if they are looking to incorporate the TLC into a future DaVinci.

I for one will be very interested in anything you hear Dave. (I won't be able to make it to the show)

In other news:

I got a call from Rick Taylor yesterday (he's at Skyview in Chicago) and he told me Producer's Color Service in Detroit is buying the BTS FLH-1000. They're also going to be in league with CIS here in Hollywood to have clients in Detroit color-correcting film on CIS machines here, through a network connection (I forget the network name). I think there was an article on this in Millimeter recently. The net doesn't support D2 resolution at 30 fps, but supposedly comes close.

  • An interesting post about a resource that still exists. Web browsers were still rare!

I'm familiar with a *fantastic*, albeit nascent, WWW Resource at USC called ETC (Entertainment Technology Center), but you must have a Web Browser.

If you do, here's their URL: http://cwis.usc.edu/dept/etc/index.html

The next time I'm there I'll check for any other means of access.

Cheers, David
