Not that it concerns me, but I'm just currious. How often is this new vision teleprint film used for transfers, and how different it is from a interpositive transfer?
Is this vision teleprint film any lower in contrast than all those past teleprint films which used to say "minus 15% contrast" or "minus 20% contrast" etc.. How is its contrast compared to a master positive?

Teleprint (low con print) stock is not as low contrast as an interpositive, and since it is usually made on a high-speed printer, it's often not as sharp as an interpositive either if that's made on a step contact printer.

Basically a low con print is just a little less harsh than a normal print, almost like a flashed image.

Kodak VISION Color Teleprint Film is about 1/5 the cost per foot of Kodak VISION Color Intermediate Film, and so provides a lower cost alternative than making a master positive for transfer. But for feature films, master positives are usually made anyway for producing the duplicate negatives used for release printing and for long term preservation masters. So the teleprint film is used mostly when master positives don't exist or are not needed for other purposes.
