Yea, I got the word down here that it's not EditDV for Windows. I do like what they've announced though, especially for a user like myself. Better integration with Adobe Premiere 5.1, and an NT version of MotoDV. That was a big missing piece. There are a lot of potential NT MotoDV customers that will like this. I'm getting the sense that we are still a ways off for EditDV for Windows. I realize it's a tough job, but I think they fumbled the ball on that one. Should have seen the need a while ago.

The Radius booth was one of the most populated at the DV Expo, and eventhough I'm currently losing a bundle with my position in Radius, I have confidence that their products are headed in the right direction. I agree with a previous post that suggests Radius is getting evaluated for what it WAS and not what it IS now: a software company with a leading product in a market that is getting ready to explode. I am still a bit concerned that managment doesn't understand that Windows is the KEY to higher revenues, and that there isn't an appropriate strategy to exploitate the consumer DV market when it arrives. Radius is creating a great product for prosumers and powerusers, but they need to come up with a super easy/friendly video editor that the average consumer who buys a DV camcorder can find bundled with his camcorder or bundled as an option with his PC. Hope they make the right moves from now on.

They understand that Windows is the future. They've known it for years, in all their product lines. They can't do it. Whether because of the technology or lack of funding, I don't know. But don't think that they don't know it.

Chuck Berger announced over 2 years ago that they would have a product line for windows ready to ship a year ago September.

Dear David,
I think they are really aware of the windows issue. Hence the motoDV "studio" solution packaged with premiere. It is interest to note fuzzymedia's response on yahoos board to the edit DV for windows as being months away. Hence MotoDV Studio. It sounds like hank morgan talking. Hes not the CFO anymore .Lastly, we can stay the course, things will drop in line. Canon relationship is very significant. Now canon has to spiff up their webpage a bit. I really think the lose ends are being tied. I am really surprised that fuzzymedia can say such things if he really was hank morgan. But no body is really sure of this.

I got a chance to speak to Radius management at the show. I'm not sure if that's a good sign or not :) I was impressed with the VP for Marketing, Brady Bruce, I believe his name was. In my mind he seems to understand the important distinction between the consumer and prosumer markets. He had some good ideas, I just hope that he can make them a reality. I also got a chance to speak to Houseley, and he gave me some insight into when the Windows products would start appearing. I don't want to put him on the spot or anything, but the words Comdex and NAB were thrown around. His big "wish" was for Firewire to finally make it directly on PC motherboards. That seemed to make sense, for what is now a software company.

Hey David,

Thanks for the feedback! You by chance ask him what the hell is going on with the share price and the prospects of another rev split?

Damn, sitting around hoping and wishing for events in the high tech industry is not exactly the kind of words I like to hear from a CEO, especially considering that we're a few days away from getting the shit or get off the pot delisting notice from Nasdaq.

What about sales and some black ink for a change. Any partnership acknowledgements?

Sure would be nice to see one of these big-wigs putting their wallet where their mouths is and buy some shares. What about this Brady Bruce? If he's sooo doggone confident, why isn't he buying?

How in the hell should anyone have any confidence in buying this stock if no one--not a sole within has publically bought anything. I don't care what fancy talk these clowns offer. If they where so confident of the future, there would be alot of insider buying at these level. There isn't for good reason I fear.

I don't really understand the financials of this company very well. Ovbiously not, if I bought my first stake at 4! So I didn't talk financials with them. I mainly talked about their products, the coming of the DV revolution, target markets, and the appropriate types of user interfaces for each type of market. I would agree with you that if they are not buying the stock at these levels it's because they see the possibility of new lows. I'm holding for the longterm on this stock now, so I'm not too concerned with what happens to the stock price tomorrow, but rather next year. Having said that, do you know when earnings are this quarter?

You paid $4.00/Share?! Damn, if could have only been so lucky!

That's reverse logic. Everyone on both boards (SI/Yahoo) have been scratching their heads over how we'll deal with the delisting problem. I say it's not problem at all! Housley becomes a man and merely 'entices' himself and every VP and above to begin immediately to make private open market purchases of the stock they represent. Like he needs a brain-fart to figure this one out?!

The buying pressure alone should increase the value, but more importantly, the managment will finally be giving the investment community that they, believe in themselves. See, everyone wants to just throw credit at Housely for resurrecting this firm. Frankly, although I think he has done a fair job so far, he certainly has not suck his head on the line to make anything easier. I wish everyone would recall, the stock price is now lower by far than ever before. As such, any increased leverage and opportunity of a higher cap has been lost due to Mr. Housely refusing to invest personally. That alone stinks of a man just looking out for himself for paycheck. Again, why should anyone invest in this POS when even the insiders won't? WAKE UP DUMBIES!!!

You know frankly, I'm more than a little peeved with this Bruce clown. Any exec worth a shit always buys personally to infer a commitment to his superiors and the shareholders. Goddamn money grabbing loser figures he's gonna stick around a few months to see some options appreciate. Prick!

Having said that, do you know when earnings are this quarter?

Dates kicked around include Nov-4 & 20. Nothing official announced yet from what I can tell.

And Scott's post is the voice of reason and season. Hard to sound like a virgin after you've been screwed.
