Hi all, I would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone that this forum is for specific discussion of [b]Thomson DD Switchers[/b]. If you have general questions about equipment and what people use, please use our General Discussion forums for such questions. (See the [url=http://editsuite.com/new/viewforum.php?id=16]main forums page[/url] for a listing of all our forums.)

The reason I am asking this is that it's hard for people to find the great feedback you all give on a certain manufacturer's equipment when it's buried in another manufacturer's forum. I think that you'll find this makes it easier for us all; you can find the info you need, and I don't have to move topics around. Ok, so I'm lazy, that's the reason. ;)

Thanks for your help and support of Editsuite.com!

-John

No, Mike, your are definitely right. Maybe we should let the users decide. . .nah, that never works (tongue definitely in cheek). . . maybe I'll ask the product marketing and/or engineering teams how they would like to separate the info. Or just post the questions as you see fit. I think it will work itself out. How's that for a cop out? -JH

Not to argue, but the Kayak IS a DD switcher, "KayakDD," isn't it? The HD version being an "expansion of the popular KayakDD? line installed in more than 1,000 facilities worldwide." I would argue that the Kayak thinks more like the philips bloodline than the legacy GVG bloodline. The side panel software is nearly identical to the DD35/XtenDD. Just a humble opinion.

Hi all, Yeah, I know it's confusing. Thomson / Grass Valley have supported us before they merged so we just kept the 2 forums. It's a moot point these days, I know. Let's say the Kayak should be discussed in the GVG Switchers forum. The Thomson DD forum should be for actual DD switchers. How's that sound? Thanks, John

[quote="Enric"]Hi John, It's possible to discuss about all switchers thomson as Kayak? Thank you, Enric[/quote] Even thbough Kayak is a Thompson/Philips product with a Grass Valley sticker placed on the panel, my guess would be the Grass Valley forum since it is remarketed under that brand name.
