    Upgrade info from 850 to 855 info

    We do not have the Extreme, however one of the reps on the floor stated that there is an upgrade path for the 850 owner. Any information available?

    Just confirmed it for a couple of my clients. $5995 is the cost to upgrade to the 855 from the 850. Basically half of what it used to be to upgrade from the 850 to the 850 Extreme. Pretty good deal if you ask me.

    Yeah, the differential from the old upgrade path has me chomping at the bit. I wasn't sure I saw $10k+ worth of benefit to the Extreme. But custom transitions and iso recording and such for 6k is very close to finding quick budget justification.

    Quicktime recording is also huge - big time saver, problem solver...

    Maybe for FCP users. :-P I guess it will save us time rehashing workflow threads.

    Really, it'll be a huge help. There are plenty of times when we want to hand footage off directly to the customer at the end of the show, and Quicktime is going to be a lot more friendly for that.

    How are the Quicktime file sizes comparing to the Mpeg in similar profiles, Steve? Now that we'll be using isocorder more, I imagine we will be much more actively managing hard drive space.

    More or less the same, in our tests.

    The 855 now comes with a CS right, or am i reading it wrong? So does a 850 to 855 get you a CS?

    In that upgrade price, I would say "no way." That'd be like, buy a CS, get an Extreme for free!

    Arrow TriCaster 855 Upgrade

    The upgrade from 850 / 850 EXTREME to 855 does NOT include the 850CS.

    The 850CS is the control surface that is included with the 855. No such thing as an "855CS."

    We have pre-ordered a couple 855s. Should be shipping this week to new homes (wherever they may be). They are currently not accounted for, so you can get in line last week with an order placed this week.

    So: accompanying each Tricaster 855 System (that isn't an upgrade) should be the copy.
    Makes total sense, for those of us that know the cost of a CS, but may be prudent to spell it out.

    Just to be thorough, these are essentially the same item; the silk-screening will be updated in a heartbeat or two.

    Hi Steve,

    Are there any functional differences for the 850CS than the 855CS? As was described to me at the pre-NAB dealer meeting, the 850CS is the same as the 855CS. Is the silk-screening the only difference?

    I thought that some of the details we received were lacking, but now I'm wiping egg from my face!

    Not that I am aware of. It's just an update of the model designation (to avoid potential confusion ).

    Been there!

    No worries, there are any number of little questions of this sort that I don't know the answer to yet either. Welcome to NAB month

    You know what it was for me, I would hear everything that was said and thought I stored it into memory and then Andrew threw "Oh and I almost forgot, here is the 8000" and I truly believe I lost time like when a person blacks out type of thing

    You should hear some of the things I thought I heard which were not even close because of the 8000

    Do I get a refund for my recent upgrade to 450XT as I'd like to have the extra functions for less money

    Am I taking it that upgrades the the 450/850 (I think I remember Steve mentioning 4d was on the way) will now stop and so the quicktime soliution and backup solution will have to be bought ?

    thanks
