The URSA is a professional camera, capturing with industry standard formats like Pro Res and CinemaDNG Raw. These formats however, do require your computer to be setup properly for use. On Mac's, everything is built in because most post production firms are still based on the mac platform. However, on windows you will need to download the drivers from Apple's web site and if you haven't installed quicktime, you'll need to do that as well. Transcoding to another media format for playback, can't happen without quicktime to read the files in the first place.

Second step would be to have fast storage to play it back. The 4444 12 bit files will have issues playing back from a standard hard drive, they will work, but you could have dropped frames and stutters. You'll need a tower computer of some kind with PCI slots and a small outboard raid with high speed connection like E-Sata or Fiber, for them to playback flawlessly. I work a lot with that format and have found it most challenging if you don't have the right hardware.

Hope that points you in the right direction.
