    Are there any more details on what the “pre-certified hardware available from DaVinci Specialist Retailers” costs? Is there a base hardware and then additional add-on modules? Does the $19,995 Linux license for current 2K/2K+ users include any hardware?

    Also, is the telecine control still in the Linux version? We currently run a 2K/Shadow telecine setup.

    The Linux configurations are specified by us so you and the DaVinci Resolve distributors can be confident that they work, and of course we can assist with support. Please contact your local authorized specialist DaVinci Distributor. The Mac based systems are available from all BMD distributors.

    Linux models include, 1GPU, 4GPU, 4GPU-3D, 8GPU, 8GPU-3D, 16GPU and 16GPU-3D. More GPU’s mean more realtime corrections. All models also have the option to add a Coprocessor or two to accelerate the RAW decoding of r3d, so half res premium debayer on the timeline is practical. Customers with multiple systems can share a common database of projects using the Database server.

    BMD designs and manufacturers the DaVinci Control Surface (Panels) and the application. You can use a Decklink HD Extreme for vtr I/O and the grading monitor feed but all other hardware is sourced and supplied by the BMD authorized DaVinci Specialist Distributors.

    I don’t know if the answer is confined to the Mac product but the answer in regard to the Mac is no, as I understand it from Dwaine’s response in:
    Linux may be different, but he doesn’t differentiate. Although he may be able to perform many other calculus operations.

    I’m pretty sure this is a file based Resolve only. The DaVinci 2k had the telecine features.

    I’m terrible at calculus. But I can clarify that the BMD Resolves (Linux and Mac) will not have telecine control. They also don’t have multiple VTR control.

    Some pre-BMD Resolve systems (R Series with Transformer 2/BOB hardware) can control telecines, and have multiple VTR ports. But the BMD Resolve does not use the Transformer 2/BOB hardware, so has no ability to control telecines or multiple VTR’s.

    There you go… a well-integrated response. You’re better at calculus than you think.
