AJA makes great products for capturing and processing video. We use some of these products and they are bullet proof. But we noticed recently that AJA has now come out with a free app to support video storage calculations. Did we mention that it’s free? We have done these calculations on the backs of napkins in the past and we have made mistakes in our calculations. This little app can be configured for video densities all the way up to to the RED 5K | 240 (333MB/s), CODECs including REDCODE, ProRes and others and finally audio all the way up to 16 channels at 96khz at 32bits. Anyway it works on all MacOS platforms as well as iOS and Windows. (Sorry Android, not yet). Here is the link to the page where you can find links to the App Store. We could have used this years ago but it’s available now. Thanks AJA
