What we'd be doing is giving away for free the information we learned at great expense to our potential competitors. This would be contrary to our best interests.
Publishing this information wouldn't do you any good, and wouldn't do us any good.
|Anyone know if there is a PC card that can take a firewire datastream and record it / play back via firewire out? I doubt it exists, but if so, it should alread be compatible with 16x9Time's product (HDVR-100).
If not, would 16x9Time consider making a version of your product that can record to a PC hard drive? (this would elminate the restrictions of short record times and high expenses of using a non-PC based solution).
|While a compatible DV VCR or camcorder is connected to the HDVR-100's firewire port, a special signal is visible on the viewfinder or the analog outputs of the VCR. This signal is not the actual high definition image. Instead it appears as a continuosly updating mosaic of color. At times the pattern almost takes on a discernable shape, but it is usually random and unlike anything usually seen.|

This comes from 16:9's web site.
So as much as I'd like to be able to import into Premiere and edit HD material, I don't think it's going to be that easy.
|Most (but not all) MPEG editing systems require the video to be captured as all "I" frames. But with a bit of memory buffering, it is far
from impossible to edit normal MPEG-2 video, several companies do it now.

I have no idea if this info helps anybody, but I somewhat sucessfully connected a PV-HD1000 to a ASUS P3B-1394 motherboard equipped PC. I was able to operate the transport controls and engage the record mode just fine, although it didn't actually record what I sent it. I tried both ULead software that came with the motherboard and VideoWave III. One package worked better than the other, but I can't recall which.
There were a few quirks, but otherwise it worked fine.
