With the news of the AJA IO HD (FW800 based) box coming soon with its realtime support of ProRes, I'm wondering who is planning to use this with a Macbook Pro to offload/work with RED on location?
And more importantly...can someone clarify the real applications for the IO box and it's importance out in the field.
I hear alot of talk about it...but admit I'm somewhat confused as to the importance of this new box. It sounds like it will do realtime conversions to/from ProRes leaving the laptop processors to work on other tasks?
Hoping someone with alot more Mac computer saavy can chime in for us camera guys.
