Fascinating discussion. Two points:
Don't know about the other systems Mike refers to but iQ doesn't do any
'mass file copying' to ready material for playout. It just plays the
material in the order it is on the timeline - the disk sub-system is fast
enough to cope.
Clearly DI is many things to many people. For many of the people I talk to
DI is an opportunity to make some money in post by either doing stuff for
new customers or doing more stuff for existing customers (hey a few posts
back someone did say ask the Marketing department)
