For reality TV, it's a pretty major thing to not only make a checksum'd camera archive of a card while simultaneously ingesting and editing the footage. Showing that to a few producers who already made up their minds from hearsay started to rethink their assumptions.

I just worked on a job that had six cameras set up to do a "bullet time" move at any part of the interviews. They used KiPros from the SDI so they wouldn't have to transcode to prores. It was a week long shoot. Lots of money and time wasted when X could have instantly synced all the cameras with the matching timecode.

I do think that once producers realize the time saving benefits of X, the genie will be out of the bottle. This is good and bad since once producers assume you can do more with less, the rates are also adjusted accordingly.
