The Vidicue 5200 was Datatron's first edit controller.
The 5050 was a low cost controller. This particular 5050 was equipped with IVC-870's and used for off line work by Trans-American Video.
The Black panel at the top of this 5050 was a custom adaptation to the 5050 by the TAV engineering department. As each edit was preformed, this unit created a very simple EDL on an ASR-33 Teletype.
Datatron multi-format editor.
The Datatron line was later sold to Paltex where the Vanguard was upgraded to become the Espirit.
