Re: filmscanners: Re: LS8000 Banding Question

It's probably the usual problem of someone  (or several people) quite
influential in the organisation either not understanding the full
implications of the issue or not wanting to admit they screwed up. Therefore
they are not prepared to find the resource (ultimately money) to fix it.
They will often pretend it doesn't exist. The argument usually goes "We sell
lots of units with few returns, so what's the problem".

Typical short term profit view.
