    I agree.

    I don't know which "partners" RED eluded to when they mentioned they had received feedback causing them to move REDray Pro ahead of REDray Consumer, but I'm guessing those "partners" are thinking they'd like to be able to distribute to theaters, and then homes afterwards, without ever needing to move the masters. That seems like a cost savings too large to pass up, and furthermore can put distributors in a position to cut out the middle-men (disintermediation) like perhaps rental houses, redbox, netflix, onDemand, etc, thus increasing their own profits from being able to sell directly, but also removing the large legal cost of negotiating with secondary markets the selling rights of each film that gets made.

    Whether REDray plays nice with DCI is obviously an issue, as was mentioned; however, I suspect the ultra-low bandwidth requirements of REDray is enough of an eyebrow raiser to warrant some negotiations at the big table.

    Only if they're willing to open the codec and implement an acceptable security scheme (i.e., conforming to some accepted standard).

    You don't really believe they invested all that research and engineering without doing their homework do you?

    Guess you will find out at lunch with Deanan:)

    Meantime Im guessing they (RED) were smart enough to understand the market they were entering and trying to disrupt, especially as we have come a long way since that 2002 initiative began and since 2005 when it was implemented.
    Kind regards,

    Which to be honest are becoming more and more lax as time goes on. For example films used to be sent out on drives that would only be able to be used on the one projector, this would be followed by a key (sent by recorded delivery on a flash stick). Now the drives are sent out and can be transfered to the drive on as many projectors as you want. The key is still time locked and each key is projector specific, except now they don't send the key they are emailed as a zip file that you put onto a flash stick. How long before someone figures out how to hack them?
