I hate to be a stickler by to my recollection is that
there was never an ADO 500
I remember the 100,200,300 all variations of the original ADO
A few years later they came out with the 1000 which kind of
looked like the Vista switcher and was an option on the
Vista to have it incorporated. What is interesting to note here
is that when Ampex introduced the 1000 at NAB they had
hundreds of them stacked up in boxes ready for immediate shipment.
Now if you see a product at NAB your lucky to get a buggy product
before the next NAB. When Chryon introduced the Infinit
they had problems in manufacturing and software that more or less
cratered the company, this was because they killed sales of the then shipping Scribe. In a giant misstep GVG did the same with the famous
GVG 200 switcher. It took them over a year to work out
manufacturing of the molded "Tub" that was its housing. They didn't
sell to many 300's after the introduction of the 200
