The best way to edit natively -- CineForm RAW in the camera.

Although this is very CineForm related, this is actually a camera announcement. CineForm has partnered with Silicon Imagining to create a camera designed from the compression up to be a digital cinema camera : the Silicon Imaging SI-1920HDVR. There are lots of juicy specs in the press release (http://www.cineform.com/press/rel-SI1920HDVR.htm) and over at the Silicon Imaging web site (http://siliconimaging.com/DigitalCinema/). What makes this mobile, battery operated, direct-top-disk camera (4+ hour record time at 1080p24 10-bit) even possible is the new CineForm RAW™ (http://www.cineform.com/technology/CineForm_RAW.htm) compression. CineForm RAW allows for direct compression for the CMOS sensor data for the highest image quality, dynamic range and post production flexibility. See a fully functioning camera at NAB in he Adobe booth. Places you orders now. :)

I have to admit that I haven't taken the time to pay much attention to the alternative imaging side of DVi. Well, you've got my attention now!

If this doesn't shake up the HD world, I don't know what will. Are there any pictures available, or do we have to wait for NAB to get a peek? Looking forward to meeting you and learning more in Vegas!

Congratulations to you, David, and to all your partners in this effort as well!

That sounds brilliant! Well done. I guess the obvious question that will be asked is whether there will be a 'rolling shutter' effect from the CMOS sensor? Also, how portable is it?

David: this sounds very promising. Can you give us any hint about the size and weight of the camera and some sort of rough price range? Or at least indicate whether these details will be available at NAB?

I think Cineform Aspect HD codec is very high quality, it lets you have the job done fast, and I wish it was hardware-supported on EVERY HD(V) camera.

Silicon Imaging has licensed an OEM version of Prospect HD Edit to ship with the camera -- so it is not the full price product -- but they (SI) may offer the camera without PHD-E (for some discount,) for users of PHD-Ingest or Prospect 2K. This is an SI discussion.

what is the difference between a OEM and a full price version?

is the trial version equal to OEM or full price version ?

also when the trial version expires is it going to affect connect HD on my system ?
if i remove trial - will that take out the cineform codec for connect HD/Vegas ..

OEM pricing is never revealed. Trail and OEM are not related -- sorry I don't understand your question.

Note: you should not have mixed Connect HD with AHD or PHD installs. You will have to uninstall both and install Connect HD (or PHD if you purchase that.)
