That is a photoshopped picture, all their products on the site are 3Dmax rendered layouts.

Google gives me nothing...

Pre-amplifying directly as close as possible to the cartridge may be a good idea.
That's used on some studio microphones.
But passing the signal through and ADC?
And then a Dac in the end?
S' stupid idea!

Per-Anders,
This reminds me of a situation some years ago.
There were adds all over the photo magazines announcing a revolutionary achievement:
A film cartridge the you inserted on any 35mm camera and transformed it in a digital camera.
There was pictures of the product in the adds.
It fitted perfectly in any camera's film compartment, included a CCD and had batteries inside.
There was plenty of enthusiasm, the professionals were waiting for that product to be released.

It never did.
It was discovered that there was no final product, they couldn't make it practical, and the pic in the adds was fake.

peranders,

it is a Klirr-Audio cartridge ... and who'd want to savor a clearaudio's output anyway, ADC'ed or not?

Do you know if there was ever a serious working prototype
and they just couldn't make it into a product? I also remember
reading about it . I also remember reading about a "digital
back" for SLRs, so you could take off the ordinary lid to the
film compartment and replace it with one including a CCD,
but that never seems to have become a product either. I
have even asked about it in shops, but nobody has ever
heard about it, so it was probably just a product idea that
they never produced.

In the 70s Yamaha had two preamps with an fet attached to the cartrige at the head. Powered from the preamp, this works very well. I think it was called H1 and H2.

I think the real problem is probably that camera CCDs are generally a whole heck of a lot smaller than 35mm film.
