Franklin - it remains in NTSC testing, I would think (speculation on my part) that it will release with the release of the Bogart V4 OS here in the Americas. MSUS originally targeted May 2011, though it might move into June. Thought I too am eager to work with this version of Arabesk, I don't mind too much a postponed release though as I would rather it release with any substantive issues resolved.

Hello Krish,

That is a challenging question - how/when to upgrade. Unfortunately the Renommee was produced when the video stream (video via cable = DV, etc)was the prominent and mostly only avaialable technology for video. Now with the proliferation of file based video technology, that product line does not work or work well with this newer technology. You _can_ convert the files into video streams and edit them but it is a longer process than most folks would find practical. Here is a previous post I recommend that will give you some thoughts about whether to upgrade and the considerations: http://chetdavis.typepad.com/casablancaexpert/2010/04/10.html

And though we are miles and oceans apart, I am happy to assist you if I can.



thanks Chet
