As far as I know, Jefferson Productions is the only company in the country other than CBS Television that is using one of the new helical-scan I-inch formats for production and post-production of nationally broadcast material. Thus far, we have used nearly 300 hours of videotape in the recording and editing of shows and commercials with the system, and feel that we have "debugged" it to the point that the problems have been solved, or are on the way toward a solution, and that the system will soon be profitable for us.
