Can understand that $2700 is cheap for a broadcast/wire operation -- but for a less than 10Mb file.... well.... I have iOS apps that size that were far cheaper. Anyone use this stuff and can discuss value for pros?

$1700? Well, this is obviously meant for commercial TV studios, who have the bread for it, and not for us run of the mill Mac users.
