Hello Errol and List,

A couple of weeks ago, Bob Shell identified the equipment, which
nullifies the difference in roll rates. Studios use it all the
time. It is called a sync generator. Its a basic piece of
equipment in any televison studio.It electroniclly matches the
the line read rate on the monitors or TV screens. Sync generators
have been around as long as TV cameras so it is not some new
video magic. It makes it easy to video tape another screen
without the annoying roll on the screen. It has to be done at
first generation though ie at time of signal to tape or you lose
the advantage. Anyone with a modest studio of their own can do

Let's set this argument aside, its a done deal.
