Once we remove portability from the discussion, there are a lot of options which could be considered.
The competitive solutions have no real-time 10-bit compression options without expensive acceleration hardware, i.e. we cost much less for 10-bit quality or the competitors are 8-bit only. Uncompressed solutions have their issues as well, try acquiring a 20X shoot ratio to uncompressed (for a 90 minutes feature you will need 15 terabytes.) Your 2TB work-station wouldn't cut it for anything but a short. We have worked through these issues with many customers and even as the Wafian unit it in pre-beta they are starting to sell as many are now realizing we have an excellent solution.

Fair enough, although it sounds like there isn't currently 10-bit output from the HD-SDI ports on the XL-H1. Can you tell us approximate pricing yet on the Wafian unit, and what is the capacity of the base model?

The details on the Wafian unit are still pending. The initial configuration will store 7-9 hours of 1920x1080 10-bit with mirrored redundancy (this is the master so it protected through mirroring.) There will be an option to go without mirroring which will double the capacity for the same unit. The primary configuration (not really a base) will retail for around $15k.

I don't know anymore. Recently there was a post about a multiple AMD cpu MB with multiple Gige (looks nice) in the custom HD camera threads of Alternative Imaging forum. There have been a number, but until somebody does a solution from camera head through software to drive, such solutions are not going anywhere.

I give up. Where would I goto to find out about cheap RGB/4:4:4 SD capture (even 640*480 or less)?

Thanks

Wayne.

I should point out, that as far as using the cineform software with supported hardware and camera, this would not be a problem.
