Re: "Enemy Within" Transporter Question

Transporter mechanics were quite basic in TOS. They layered in the technobabble much later. If I had to guess, I would say that the annular confinement beam is something produced by the ship regardless of which transporter room is being used. This makes sense in story too, as nobody could be beamed up without risking catastrophic loss of data resulting in disability or death.
