Thanks. That is some post.
I checked the links in that post and found out 2 types of contrast glass for color from tiffen.
#2 viewer is for film speeds to 100;
#3 is for faster film. They can be used for video, as well, with the #3 being better suited for lower light levels.
I am a direction student so got confused in this. I know we used film of speed 160T for our super 16mm exercises. Shall I go for #3 glass type

I thought these filters went out with B&W TV. They were, I recall, used quite extensively to make sure color shows would photograph acceptably for B&W viewers too.
