Default Identify mystery video mixer?

Hi, I've just joined this forum since I'm hoping someone can help me identify this video mixer. I got it in a mixed ebay lot.

Even though I picked it up in London, it turns out this (and all the other video equipment I got with it) is NTSC.

It doesn't really work properly, giving a very glitchy output. (Yes, I'm using it with other ntsc equipment)

There's no model number or manufacturer anywhere on it, but there is a US address printed on the back:

Quote:
20516 Lorne
Taylor, MI 48180
and, taking it apart, one of the circuit boards has this info:

Quote:
Designed by E. Johnson and the Catchpole Corp.
Microcontrol By Chrysalis Microsystems
Video Interface Products H-11 (or H-II?) Rev. F
Anyone recognise this? I'm hoping to one day get it working as it looks like it could be fun.

Its not one I recall having seen before, as it is NTSC you might be better posting on an American based forum?

perhaps http://www.videokarma.org/forumdisplay.php?f=174

20516 Lorne, Taylor, Michigan was the address of Video Interface Products in 1986 - a Google Books search turns up magazine announcements of their "Hybrid-8" video dubbing controller and the "Video Interface Products Two-Camera Video Mixer (model Hybrid 1000, Camera Dissolve Unit)". So perhaps this is something in that series...
