[Tapio Haaja] "I really hope Adobe some day releases their own high quality cross platform DI codec. In the meantime I hope they've licensed Prores from Apple for CS6 so they can build native support for it and bypass old Quicktime. I think licensing for Mac Premiere shouldn't be an issue because Avid already introduced native Prores support in MC6 for Mac.

Another thing is I/O performance and stability. At the moment performance and stability with AJA, Blackmagic and Matrox is very poor."

Tapio, AFAIK Apple has licensed prores encoding only to acquisition hardware companies (cameras, recorders etc). Both Premiere and Avid can read & edit prores files (Win and Mac) but only Mac versions of both can encode if they have FCP or Motion installed on their system.

In my experience stability in PrPro with third party hardware is solid. Problems with stability and performance are usually system configuration issues. Some complain, for instance, that they can only play a single stream of prores HQ. Others with the same hardware get 3 or 4. Personally I tend to avoid all QT variants like the plague because they're 32bit and because Quicktime on Windows really is as painfully buggy as black flies in July.
