RaveHD uses Linux to help movie studios process raw video

SpecSoft's Linux-powered RaveHD DDR-VTR system is not a video editing tool for home users or small-time professionals. It's a system that stores, manipulates, and plays back uncompressed video that can be turned into film clear enough to fill a Hollywood movie theater's wide screen. It's what you need when the file size of each frame in your video is measured in gigabytes and your whole project takes up multiple terabytes of storage, and you have not just one or two but 100 or 200 animators and post-production people working for you. At this level of video and film production, says SpecSoft co-founder Ramona Howard, the question isn't why you develop your utility programs in Linux, but why you would even consider using a proprietary operating system.
