ECS-1
ECS-1
The ECS-1 was first sold in September 1975. Almost all the early ECS (1's and 10's) were sold for the purpose of Electronic News Gathering. By early 1978 the Convergence 100 series replaced the 1's and 10's and were being used for off line post production as well as News Gathering. During the late 70's and early 80's Convergence designed and manufactured editing control systems for Ampex Corporation. These editing systems were used to control the 1" Type "C" machines that replaced virtually all the Quadruplex format VTR's throughout the Broadcast Industry at the time. In 1982 Convergence joint ventured with LucasFilm LTD and created a Company called Droidworks that produced the EditDroid - Utilizing Optical Disks to replace film for off-line editing that conformed to feature length film distribution. In 1986 Convergence and its holding company, Acquis was sold to EECO. That same year LucasFilm purchased 100% of the Joint-Venture company DroidWorks.
