Are there any Transfer houses currently transferring Red's RAW footage to D-Beta?

I'm wondering if this could solve a lot of workflow issues. I've heard that Riot! in Santa Monica might be doing it. I plan to give them a call tomorrow to see what the story is. My thinking is that if I can get Red footage transferred and colored to D-Beta then from that point on I can work with the footage just as I always do.

I talked to Riot! They can handle the footage one of two ways.

1.) Their Data management dept. will take the RAW footage and transfer it to D-Beta for a future tape to tape.

2.) They bring in the footage on their new Resolve non-linear color correct system at 4K and they do a 4K color transfer (yep, it's as expensive as it sounds).

My friend at Riot! suggested that going to D-Beta and doing a tape to tape might be the smarter route (for now) since coloring at 4K and then downconverting to D-Beta might lead to unforseen problems, artifacts, etc. since while in 4K we would be tempted to push the 'neg' around much more than could be held in D-Beta.
