Fairuse snippet of Iridias PR:

Real-Time Playback at 3K Resolution

IRIDAS, who introduced the first live playback of RAW files earlier this year, today announced support for real-time de-Bayering of ARRI D20 digital camera footage. The ARRI RAW file format, which offers 3K resolution and 12-bit color depth, can be played directly in FrameCycler and SpeedGrade. Since RAW files are one third the size of uncompressed RGB formats, this means substantially lower storage requirements and will save filmmakers the time that would otherwise be required to render RAW footage before it can be viewed.

"The new IRIDAS RAW playback capability is the link that has been missing until now," said Achim Oehler, D20 project manager at ARRI. "Now we have a seamless solution for working with the D20 RAW data in its native format."

"Working with RAW is just much more efficient," said Lin Kayser, IRIDAS CEO. "There's less data to move, less, to store, and yet you're working at full 3K resolution. This will be tremendous for digital dailies workflows with the non-destructive color correction capabilities of SpeedGrade DDS, for example."

The ARRI D20 is the third RAW file format supported by IRIDAS. CineForm RAW, and the Phantom camera RAW format are the others.

SpeedGrade and FrameCycler are great tools. SpeedGrade OnSet is an inexpensive way to check color correction options during production and send reference frames to a colorist. FrameCycler allows one to playback the RAW files out of computer memory in the computer's RAM, which is otherwise impossible. We currently bundle both programs with the laptops on our Phantom rental packages.

i agree.

Speedgrade and Framecycler are excellent products and priced to competete.

the other topnotch german company for 2,3,4k should also be menitioned: DVS.

their new clipster is a real 4K powerhouse - it even outputs DCI masters directly.
