For decades it was used to sync several VTRs by a computers cut list, to
cut videos and I guess it's still not outdated. Yes, it's very accurate
(IIRC the precursor of SMPTE was invented for the NASA Apollo missions).
I guess a noticeable pre-roll only will occur when tape recorders need
to reach speed, but I don't think noticeable pre-roll is needed for hard
disks. The big exception for a long delay is film cut, when several
machines have immense offsets because of cuts and the machines need to wind.
