[Oliver Peters] "Not in my frame of reference. It's simply a"stand-in" for the original. I make a differentiation between proxy and ProResProxy. One is a substitute, the other a specific format. In fact, in Adobe's "proxy" parlance, you can specify the size and codec of the "proxy" file. In other cases, a proxy file might be the same resolution as the original, but with a LUT and TC burn added.

Just like the terms offline and online editing. The de facto assumption is that offline would use lower-res media and online would use higher. But there's nothing that says it can't be the other way around.

Haven't thought of it like that before. Though even Apple and Sony use 'proxy' to refer to low res media that's a place holder for the high res masters. Maybe my definitions just haven't changed with the times?

[andy patterson] " I don't see loyalty to HP or Dell although there may be a few. Keep in mind there is a difference between real facts and pure personal bias."

While now dated, have you ever heard the phrase, "Nobody ever got fired for buying IBM?" Do you remember the Zune Tattoo Guy? There are certainly a lot of Windows/PC loyalists that wouldn't be caught dead with anything made by Apple. Maybe you hang around too many Mac-centric places so you don't notice, but get around a more general cross section of the computing user base (which is still by and large PC users) or go to PC-centric places and you'll certainly run into those that vehemently prefer PCs (or as they are known in gaming circles, The Glorious PC Gaming Master Race ;)).
