    Just curious what the status of ODEMAX's beta testing is.

    For a while, I was getting email updates, but over the past couple of months, they have gone silent. (At least in my experience)

    Does anyone else know what their plans are? Or possibly someone from ODEMAX can chime in? We love our REDRAY, but we are really looking forward to it's full potential...

    NO.

    over the last couple of months have sent several emails to the ODEMAX contacts to get updates...for that material any response. And nothing. Not a word.

    not looking good.

    My recent emails have gone unanswered. I sent Tom an email a few weeks back and nothing... Yeah, doesn't look good. :(

    This may have always been the case, but I do find it odd that there is not a single mention of Odemax on the RED website.

    ODEMAX and RED, beyond being supported on the REDRAY platform, don't have much to do with each other.

    I too haven't heard anything in some time from ODEMAX. They do have a hard drive I'd like to get back from them however.

    I'll try reaching out next week and see what there is to learn.

    Odemax would have been just soooo right if it launched when it was announced....

    That's a bummer to hear things went silent. 4K TVs are pushing mainstream and content is going to be playing catchup. That gives a lot of us shooting RED for years a nice jump.

    Their twitter account devolved into tweeting jibberish, then went silent a couple months ago. From the point of view of a somewhat interested observer, it appears that things imploded in one way or another.

    Are they still operational for beta users who have the hardware? Or did it even get to that point over the last year?

    Does that mean REDRAY is useless without this service?

    That wasn't what I was saying, but it might be possible. red.com sales copy about the Redray player indicate that it can only play .red files. So I guess you could play your own movies if you buy the transcoder? I'm not sure. It also says it can upscale 1080p files, but it doesn't say which ones. But if it can only play h264 files at this point, that's an expensive Apple TV.
