I was wondering before if Apple somehow has a blanket license from Red and then sub-licenses to manufacturers or something. Apple just licenses out the codec. Which is quite different to the RED patents, which block people from doing internal compressed raw. Oh hang on, the MAVO Edge doesn't do great compression than 5:1 ProResRAW? Is that still light enough compression that it isn't covered by RED's patents? Quote The codec Apple took RED to court for, the ProRes RAW file format, allows files to be compressed for up to 22:1, with 8:1 visually lossless compression and 3:1 mathematically lossless compression. https://techthelead.com/straight-outta-silicon-valley-apple-loses-video-patent-lawsuit-to-red/ So that is why Kinefinity has 5:1 ProResRAW? And not 8:1 Quote The camera can also include a memory device and an image processing system configured to compress and store in the memory device the raw image data at a compression ratio of at least six to one and remain substantially visually lossless, and at a rate of at least about 23 frames per second. https://patents.google.com/patent/US8872933B2/en BINGO!
