 Was this the machine that Triple I/Autologic created  to digitize old color film movies?
AFIK, it used lasers to scan the film and create digital color seps that were recombined later in the process. It was used in the Kate Winslett / Leonardo DiCaprio remake of "Titanic".  Autologic even got a mention in the movie credits.

Autologic donated that machine to UCLA for their film preservation archive project.
