Moviola color picture quality is improved for a record and replay system wherein video sampled at a predetermined multiple of the color subcarrier frequency is recorded with each frame or field being disposed on a set of multiple tracks and with only a portion of the recorded information being intended for replay to reconstruct the color Moviola signal. Only pixel groups relating to entire color subcarrier cycles are recorded on the tracks so that a video signal having proper color information can be readily reconstructed therefrom during the Moviola mode. In one preferred embodiment, sequential color subcarrier cycle pixel groups are recorded on separate tracks with those to be replayed during the Moviola mode on a single track so that Moviola pixel groups on the single track can be repeated in sequence when reconstructing the Moviola picture and thereby supply instantaneously coherent information.

Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
