  • HD SPARK upgrade path

    Is it likely that GV will ever consider allowing EDIUS 5 software only users some kind of upgrade path to their hardware? I'm interested in HDSPARK, but the idea of having to pay for EDIUS 5 again puts me off.

      You can buy the Spark alone without Edius.

          Oh, cool - I had no idea this had changed. I'll have to see if they do this in the UK as well.

            As far as I know, both HDSPARK (HDMI) and HDSPARK Pro (HD/SD-SDI) are available world-wide, in software-free SKUs.

              K, do you know if the HDSpark Pro is shipping in the US yet?

                No idea - I'm not connected (physically) to shipping operations any more. The PR said end of September.

                  Yes, HDSPARK and HDSPARK Pro are both available as hardware-only for owners of EDIUS v5.

                  HDSPARK Pro should be available in the US starting next week, so place your orders now!

                    Joe,

                    Siren technology does them in the UK, you can buy it naked but if anyone needs E5 it's cheaper to buy the two together.
