DS is celebrating the tenth birthday this year and Avid has decided to launch the new version in September.
They showed some of the new features of Avid DS 10 at a gathering in Hollywood on Wednesday. The bottom line is that the box is fast, not cheap but very fairly priced considering the muscle and the amount of companion applications that come with it (Media Composer is bundled).
It does primary and secondary color correction in real time in 2k. RGB full resolution, no proxies. No lower quality playback. Just a solid 2k out. There are pretty serious 3D LUTs for standard stocks, digital cameras and as I understand you can make your own too.
No more EDLs for conforming DPX files. Actually, you can still use them but you can also use AFE which carries over far more FX information from Media Composer.
