John Dowdell likes to cite the recent experience of documentary director Ken Burns, who transferred his entire PBS series on Lewis and Clark on the Spirit for the same overall cost as an Ursa transfer, since the Spirit's twice-rate was handily undercut by its speed of set-up and halved transfer time, due to the Spirit's near-perfect match to negative and interpositive film, requiring minimal tweaking and almost no secondary correction.
To sweeten the bargain, Burns got an HDTV master from which to downconvert superior NTSC and PAL submasters needing no additional telecine or color correction.
