How does one tell on the Odemax page what resolution each piece of content is? Where is the info on content pricing. Can anyone sign up now?.
I don't know if it is a fact that orders placed in December and not shipped. I have seen some post about it long time ago, but no confirmation that the poster didn't get them after they posted.
If you had taken shipment of your player then you could have been a quality witness.
I have been rather surprised of the lack of test results and feedback from owners of the RedRay player over at Reduser.
Red started manufacturing of the player in November last year, so they should have had a huge storage of them by now, unless they have "given away" a huge number of them, or restricted delivery to a number of people they know so as to have some kind of "beta testing" closed circle.
If the delivery time now is 2-3 weeks, what will happen when all these workers start the Epic Dragon sensor upgrade in September?
There is a "log in" button on Odemax. But maybe you need a RedRay player.
As for pricing; yes I would have liked to know that before I fork out nearly $2K for a player. It should have been obvious.
I also am is surprised that there isn't any emphasis on free content. There are so much reels and commercials from major brands that is shot in 4K, and which they could have gotten for free.
Much of that material has the type of quality that would make it perfect for HT demo material.
I was very surprised of the lack of information on the Odemax page for everything from technical information on each movie, longer bios of the directors and extended information on how Odemax really works.
Like why not try drumming up some excitements for the brand.
Odemax has had so many months to fill their pages with things that would help to sell the brand (and the RedRay player), but this "minimalistic approach" makes me undecided if they are just lazy or maybe clueless about marketing.
I also react on the low resolution on some of the "poster pictures" for some of the movies, looks like extra low resolution images that has been up-converted. Doesn't give much confidence of the image quality of the movie the picture is supposed to promote.
or this when page expands to display the image full size; http://odemax.com/channel/lookup?id=57
Technical design of the Internet page should induce some confidence in their technical ability.
They promise "big-budget-blockbusters" in the future and I think it is a mistake to not include at least some taste of that in this first release presentation, with a couple of known features even if they are not exactly "big-budget-blockbusters".
Because now I don't know if that is just hopes and dreams or wishful thinking by Odemax.
As marketing people, the Odemax guys fail on all accounts.
But still it is probably the best technical 4K material that can be had in any home theatre at the moment.
