Yeah phew.

Not to rain on the parade, but the press release only mentions "magnetic tape manufacturing" which may or may not include HDCAM-SR at the end of July.

Has anyone seen more detailed plans for SR production?

Sony has been officially silent since that release, but word is they might be limping back into production. We prepare for the worst and hope for the best. HDCAM supply from all manufacturers was later affected in major ways just because there was such a crazy run on that stock after the HDCAM SR shutdown that it too, went into shortage.

When the time comes, I imagine it being like the people that sleep outside Best Buy stores to get the new Playstation and then fight for who's first in. Maybe it won't be that bad, but the be all end all is that mother earth trumps everything and we should always keep a human perspective in regard to what caused this problem to begin with and that we were more fortunate than so many people in Japan.
