London’s Rushes is the first post house to buy SpectSoft’s RaveHD 2.5. Rushes Director of Engineering Tim Wharton said, “We were looking for a 2k and HD capable disc-based product to improve workflow in our Linux-based CG area. RaveHD 2.5 was the perfect solution and I can also see applications for RaveHD with our internal shot tracking database – and I can confirm that the Da Vinci 2k-based telecine area will also be looking seriously at the product.”
SpectSoft co-founder Ramona Howard said, “We’re really happy to have shipped RaveHD to a company as respected as Rushes in London and are very hopeful of more sales into the Soho post production community as a result.”
Howard also confirmed that RaveHD 2.5 would ship with the ability to support dual DDRs and/or stereoscopic recording by simply adding an additional I/O board. It is also expected that features such as MPEG conversion and data conform will roll out mid-summer 2007.
