Back in 1986 - 1992 or so I made video animation 
controllers.  These could be connected to a variety of 
editing VCRs such as U-matic, M series and VHS editing 
decks.  It had a Z80 and typical RAM, ROM a calculator LED 
display and circuitry to lay down a time code and read the 
time code.  It didn't see the video signal at all, just got 
sync pulses on the remote control connector, and one audio 
track in and out.  Mostly sold to people making videos of 
scientific results.  I sold about 20 of them.
