"Looks like it's finally happening for real...
According to a fax I just received, the September 19 release of "Anything Else" will be the first to carry a cyan dye analog soundtrack."

I guess the bottom line is if it doesn't effect the rental income of the major market players it will now finally get implimented

Yea, I got the fax. I guess it is no great loss if you can't hear the soundtrack on a Jason Biggs' film.


4 out of 5 of my rooms are so equiped. I left on conventional to show variable density tracks.

All but the few cinecolor vd tracks will play just fine on a red LED All the rest of the B&W VD tracks are fine
rememebr that cinecolor and Techincolor had cyan tracks back in the 40's that required red dot excitors and Selinium PE cells

Lots of discussion generated on the Film Handlers Forum of Film-Tech:
http://www.film-tech.com

Here's the first-hand information:
http://www.dyetracks.org

Cyan dye analog tracks will have a pure cyan (sky blue) color with NO dark gray silver stripe over them. They MUST be played with a red light reader, or you will have unacceptable signal-to-noise. Best option if a retrofit is available is a reverse scan red LED reader, since you then also get the advantages of reverse scan. Noise reduction (Dolby SR or equivalent) is also recommended, since the baseline S/N is a few dB lower.

T-minus two months and counting!
