As I recall, the vir switch had its own set of controls. So, you could make it look like anything you wanted.
Those vir generators are all over Ebay if you wanted to play with one. Except for the VITS100, they also have a full field test generator with a boatload of test signals. The one I liked was the Tektronix 1910.
I've seen them as low as $30.
But I think the vits deleter and inserter section could be used in eradicating copyguard thats in the vertical interval.

As i recall, it did have internal color and tint adjustments for VIR, and manual adjustments for non Vir mode.. If i remember correctly, it performed well most of the time, but there were times when we had to disable it because it didnt agree with all programs...

Here is the only 19" GE VIR set I've ever seen. I think most people bought the stripped down model despite the massive advertising campaign.

A friend of mine owns a VIR set with a gassy CRT.

I got a VIR-equipped Electrohome console from 1978 just yesterday. It starts but I'm sure it'll need work. Good thing I got the manual, and saw this thread, otherwise I still wouldn't know what it is.
