As for the lack of HDMI inputs, just put a switcher in front of it. I know, kludgy but if this still the "real" Teranex product and not a dumbed down low cost version, it's well worth the trouble for people with large SD libraries.
As for the consumer customer base, no, it will not be widely adopted IMO. Those of us hard core videophiles will get one for sure but most users are just fine with AVRs and internal TV processors these days. As for purchasing, Black Magic has a wide network of dealers like B&H photo in NYC for example. And professional video equipment dealers will be happy to take anyone's money these days - especially a cash sale.
I looked at some websites (not all) did not notice this product, alot of other black magic products though.
Maybe someone can help me out here.
Really if this is infact better then radiance, theres little price point difference. Also would be quite curious if the 2d device can actually pass a 3d signal? I really dont know much about 3d, but i would still be curious, hard to hook up anything to the 2d device if you plan on watching a 3d disc, and it cant pass it.
I really have no use for this device since 95% of my viewing is hd or bluray, but i like vp's and i dont know why. I imagine it deinterlaces 1080i properly, but so does my current vp, I would be interested if the noise reduction has finally surpassed my algolith flea though.
