Yes, I agree. And maybe you'll get a 99%.

The emitter follower with 0.2V sync tip and 200 Ohms pull down causes problems with some for example vintage DIN AV inputs on VCRs. They have a cap in front of the 75 Ohms load and this will cut the sync signal. I've seen some modulator schematics using cap loaded emitter inputs too. So this vision output can cause trouble.

Kind regards,
