RaveHD supports uncompressed SD, HD, Dual Link HD and 2K in a single system as well as hardware accelerated upconverting and downconverting. The RaveHD Xenon system features integrated RS-422 hardware that allows for both slave and master control, unlimited scalability, dual 10/100/1000 gigabit ethernet and includes features like frame oriented, standard file system storage and centralized database asset tracking, RP188 (embedded timecode), Varicam flagging support, and a programmable cadence engine(2:3, 3:2:3, 2:3:3:2, etc). RaveHD is natively frame-based but does offer some built-in tools for those working with Quicktime.
Priced at $25,000, the RaveHD Xenon System features 6TB of local storage in a SATA array configuration(upgradeable to 9.6) and offers one of the highest quality video solutions on the market today, addressing many concerns seen by other systems. "This system is a great solution for not only the traditional DDR but as a deck replacement altogether", states Ramona Howard, President of SpectSoft. â€œThe feature set we have built into RaveHD is unlike any other software package on the market today and it just keeps getting better with the development help we see from our customers.â€?
