      After announcing Media 100 to the press in January, John Molinari and Gary Godin from Data Translation demonstrated the new system to 1992 NAB attendees. Molinari recalls: We spent a good two years (1990-1992) proving it couldn't be done. It was obviously technically difficult and very challenging. Then we launched the 'proof of concept' in 1992 at NAB. But it was a bittersweet moment.
