Does RED RAY really need to work off optical disc?
If it will really play back 2 hours of 4K from a standard dual layer DVD-R (not quite 9GB), then do we need to really deal with optical media at all, with all of its shortcomings?
CF cards are becoming cheaper by the day. Write-once FLASH media is beginning to hit the market and will be available at even cheaper price points than rewritable flash.
2 hours of 4K on a dual-layer DVD sounds great, but that isn't enough for some feature film delivery. With the current implementation, would that mean that on a 2 hour and 20 minute film presented in 4K that we would have to "change the reel".
2 hours of 4K in less than 9GB. That's huge... It also screams out loud to be a format that can be easily downloaded or transferred. What about RED RAY (or whatever) server units or software. For large venue installations, corporate environments, even upscale home AV installs, what about the ability for the RED RAY to have gigabit ethernet connectivity so it can pull and play from a centralized server?
