The Red Rocket looks like a very nice addition to the RED workflow, but I wonder if it is wrongly positioned for the general post-production workflow, and there is still a gap to be filled.
It seems like it's best use would be for screening 4K dailies, archiving rushes to HDCAM SR and creating offline rushes.
For colour grading it obviously alleviates the pressure on the GPU to do the debayering, but as I assume the GPU/CPU still has to handle the grading, masking, tracking and other computations, the Red Rocket's DVI, SDI outputs become redundant. The monitoring outputs would have to be taken from the existing, AJA, BMD, Nvidia, ATI outputs already present in the system.
Is there any chance of a Rocket Lite ithat is purely a debayer and does not have any outputs for around 2K US.
