    I like having a physical disc.
    From what I understand there are no physical RedRay disks

    True. Even if it does go down half in price, it wont matter too much I guess. It would be exciting to display Blue Ray through the Redray. Didn't Ted say something about the signal being uprezzed or something like that.

When ODEMAX launches, it may make sense to get one and just hook it up to a regular HD display for now; if for nothing else than to test .RED files before putting them up to ODEMAX.

    It's going to be an exciting year!

    Interesting question. I've heard mention that you can put a .RED encode on a thumb drive for playback on the player, so I guess you could substitute optical disk media for the flashdrive and with a USB disk player, play that back on the Red Ray Player.

    I believe you can actually hook up an external hard drive too.

    I vaguely recall that as well. But do you remember WTI (what the interface) that would use? I suppose a USB 2.0 dock would work.

    EDIT: I wish the player had at least, a USB 3.0 connector to offload the internal drive's contents onto an external drive for storage.

    Thinking about the .RED codec... I guess this would qualify as irony that the Dragon at say 3:1 quality and 96 fps would require some of the more massive media rates for capture, while the .RED format for viewing requires only a USB 2.0 connection for viewing. To be able to master both ends, high data rate and low data rate as well... that's just amazing.



    EDIT: Not sure you can capture 96 fps at 3:1, but at whatever setting, that's a lot of data.

    The Red Ray Player has USB2 and E-sata connections Both of which you can attach a drive for infinite content storage.

    One thing that I'm a bit concerned about, is that RED is entering the consumer-market in a way, with this thing.

    No the normal consumer isn't going to pay 1450 dollars for a media player, but it isn't only high end professionals at that point (Blu-Ray was about something like that for early adopters). So, while professionals can put a context to how innovative RED is with their camera's etc, and that delays are part of the manufacturing period, I think a rich consumer pre-ordering a REDRAY on the RED website won't think it will be nice if the product has a 6month delay or more.

    I think with the whole ODEMAX release and stuff, they are prepared, and I really hope so for them. On the other hand, I have to be honest: as great products as Epic and Scarlet are, Jim also said in the beginning that the product would be bullet-proof out of the gate because of what they learned with REDOne. I'm not sure they always had that in the beginning of the Epic-Days.

    I wish them all the luck in the world though. It seems they have a distribution plan that has the potential to really shake up the whole industry.

    e SATA? Good. That satisfies the offload bandwidth needs.
