    It sure would be nice if there was a chip on every Blackmagic card with the complete DaVinci instruction set built in.

    what amazes me is the reaction on AVID-L, FCP-L, and other user forums. The buzz about this is incredible.

    So, does this mean that we’ll soon be seeing a $1k da Vinci bundle with a BMD card?

    Jeeze, Apple included Color for free. They set the bar pretty high (or low depending on your point of view). It’ll be interesting to see how BM can compete against that cost/benefit standard. On the other hand, it seems Color 1.5 still hasn’t really fixed things, so I guess the reality is, you get what ya pay for.

    Yup, that was kind of my point.

    BMD recently gave us the sub $1k HD capture card, and has now pushed HD scopes down to around $1500-$2k (including the computer to run it!), so why not take a $100k+ color corrector and drop the price to, say $5k? or would that be to high?

    Perhaps they’ll buy Quantel or Avid next?

    Well, before anyone jumps on my message above as some sort of serious comparison between DaVinci and Apple Color, don’t bother please, I was joking. I know DaVinci well and I know some of wonderful DaVinci colorists here in L.A. as well.

    I congratulate both BM and DaVinci.

    IMHO there are three elements that made possible the “digital video revolution”:
    – MiniDV format.
    – Affordable NLE systems.
    – BlackMagic cards.
    Today I have an AJA IOHD but I trust very much those guys of BM.
    I don’t think we will be working with a DaVinci for a few bucks, but sure this people will make these system much more affordable.
    I deeply wish that BM gives another lesson to the “elite orientated” companies.
