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.
