Any idea if and when Media 100 will directly support EX codecs?

Thanks very much

Hey guys,

Sorry for the delay, I spent the last two days talking to a lot of people about how to answer this and, unfortunately, I can't.

I hate to do it but, in this case, the stereotypical lawyer-speak answer really is the appropriate one. We simply do not publicly discuss features that we have not publicly announced.

I CAN tell you that this sort of support is not out of the question, it's something that is discussed frequently in house and something that we would certainly "like" to do. We are constantly making decisions about where to focus our resources. Sometimes this means our customers will feel like a feature or two is "missing". We are not the only company in the world that has to make these sort of choices. I personally would LOVE to be able to go straight to Blu-ray out of DVDSP, but Apple hasn't put that in there yet.

So, again, sorry I can't always answer your questions, but PLEASE don't stop asking them.

Apple and the Blu-Ray consortium have many legal, licensing & cost issues that have steered Apple along the non Blu-Ray path for the moment.

I doubt that is the case with Media 100 and EX codec so that comparison is not realistic but I understand what you are saying. Nonetheless, your initial answer was honest enough for me - thank you. I do hope that Media 100 WILL include this increasingly popular codec in the near term.

Yes, I import & convert the files to PR422HQ easily and it all looks great, but the EX choice would be appreciated as Media 100 does not offer many HD codec choices at all.

I will keep asking.

Thanks again Wick

I too appreciate your honesty.

And it would certainly help me if you all decide to go in that direction. (And it would influence a purchase as well.)
