Okay, now we are getting somewhere. They are using the RAID 3
standard which they are calling RAID-XL3. A bit confusing [all
those different things in the document, but okay]

First things first. Why use RAID at all? DV doesn't need RAID.
If you are using a fast ATA133 or SATA drive you will definitely
don't need RAID for DV if speed is your concern. A normal system
can keep up with the 3.6 MB/s datarate just fine [if you don't
have tons of applications running and defragment etc.].

So if it isn't for speed it must be for safety. Basically there WERE
(in the past) 2 options: RAID 1 (mirroring) and RAID 5 (parity).
Now we/they seem to have RAID 3 which is optimized for Video,
right?

I'm wondering why not simply use a mirrored drive then. That
will yield a higher protection rate (should be 100%) without the
loss of speed for writing (drives can write in parallel) and should
give increased speed reading.

I'm not saying that NetCell doesn't have a good product or
anything, I'm just wondering the why's and how's.

Also keep in mind that for most people RAID is a thing you don't
need (unless perhaps for realtime backups).

And I checked the Promise site and their line of RAID controllers
and they ARE hardware RAID controllers but they do not offer
this RAID3. They do offer striping (RAID 0), mirroring (RAID 1)
and parity (RAID 5) with some other modes (like RAID 10).

Just for everone's information....

>>Designed to playback material recorded with JVC's JY-HD10U camcorder, including HD and DV footage, built-in conversion allows HD footage to be viewed on virtually any monitor.<<

I wonder if it would work with PAL monitors...the only thing that keeps me from buying an HD10 is that I wont be able to sell my material to the PAL market.

" The Heliodisplay (TM) projects TV, streaming video and computer images into free space (i.e. mid-air) "

Looks interesting!

The future is now, it seems. This is all they care to say about it, except to assert that it is definitely not holography.

I can't really say I believe what they say. Looks too unserious to my eyes. Why does he have this high tech gadget in his garage with shovels and other garden instruments?

Nah, I think it's a hoax...

It never occurred to me that someone would pull a stunt this weird. What's the point? I would say that their contact info is sure odd.

Why? A hoax is still a hoax, perhaps they get a kick out of getting loads of questions about their "invention". To the public they would seem smart and important. To produce the video they do (on their site) would take a day to do... (3D Graphics) and is not very hard at all to do..

The movie where he demonstrates the touch function there is a dot that is suppoed to track his finger, but it does not fully match, the dot goes a lot longer then he moves it fingers and sometimes it does not, how does the dot know when it needs to move further then other times to change the larger dots?

And if it where true, woud it not get more media attention?
what they do seem to me is next to impossible. The air would need to stream out of the box at an extreme rate (one could tanselate that to frame rate) because as I kind of understood the invention it lets air travle trough 2 ionized plates and out on the top. the plates would have to arrange the air atoms really fast and blow them out on top. And I kind of figured that if they can alter atoms like that they could easaly build a real car with the same technology only alter the atoms into real materials instead of images. Nanotechnology. If you do a quick search you get no good pages to read about it.

This is only my opinion, don't take my word for it, figure it out for yourself :)
