It's not like MPEG, though, which blocks or breaks up when the stream is interrupted. Wavelet just gets "softer." Again, don't quote me, but that's my understanding at this point.
The Redray player isn't for streaming movies. It based on that you set the player to download content from Odemax to the internal storage.

Expect that they will save most of the details of the projectors for NAB which is really their venue for announcements, and they need something "new" to announce there.
Re Odemax, the guy stated that it was still a few months off. They had previous;y said a launch at Sundamnce next wewek. Now they say they are still testing the compression codec or whatever to put content on the Odemax network.
Originally they said the official launch should be at the Sundance festival, and that the Odemax network would be launched in March.
Now they have removed all references to Odemax at the Red.com Redray presentation and removed the launch references at the Odemax website. Expect some delays. Maybe some studios are on-board and demands a different launch time or event?
Last they said about the compression codec software some weeks ago was that the Image quality was "locked down" and that they now work on the efficiency of the software.
