Why were some of Kodak's DCS models so far ahead of other digital cameras at the time?

Re: Why were some of Kodak's DCS models so far ahead of other digital cameras at the time?

The lossless sample photo I found from Kodak's DCS 560C was pretty accurate colour wise. The only issue I could see with it was the relatively low contrast/dynamic range compared with modern cameras, but this can be improved using an image editor like Photoshop.

I'd have still said that the colour on their 90s DCS cameras, maybe with the exception of the first couple of models, was more accurate than the majority of photos I've seen taken on 35mm film at the time. The DCS 1 and DCS 460D both give a slightly reddish cast in the sample images I've found but it's only slight (not like a faded low quality print from the 1970s) and can be easily corrected.
