I was possibly wrong on the real-time HD part for under $10k. We'll have to see.

Media Composer v. 3 will be out around June and should work with everything HD under the sun including AVC-1. I was hoping the new Mojo DX would be cheaper and I'm not sure you can buy it unbundled from Media Composer software or not.

With the upcoming support for Vista 64-bit there's another question. Will this be native 64-bit app? And will how much ram and many cpu cores will MC actually support, one thing is to running it with 8 cores and 4-8gb ram, another is if there are any benefit at all.

In a post on the Avid forums (sorry, don't have the link at the moment) one of the moderators talked to one of the Avid developers and was told that MC will be a 32-bit app running in 64-bit space, like the majority of Vista-compatible apps at present. Even though it's still a 32-bit app, it will be able to use all the RAM that Vista can see. So on Vista 64, you'll be able to use more than 4GB of RAM. (Which means I need to add more RAM to my Avid workstation soon!)

As for how many cores it supports, I'm a network admin, not a programmer, but my understanding of how things work is that once an app is truly "multithreaded" it will be capable of using as many cores as are in a given system. It just spawns as many threads as the OS can process. So 2 cores, 4 cores, or 8 cores, it'll be able to use them.

There should definitely be considerable benefit. Even the current version of MC will get a slight benefit running on an 8 core XP box, since the OS can run some of its processes on the other cores while MC gets at least one core all to itself instead of sharing it with XP's housekeeping tasks.

Hope this helps. I'm sure someone will properly roast me if I've made ant major blunders.
