Multimedia, AV Dirac is an advanced royalty-free video compression format designed for a wide range of uses, from delivering low-resolution web content to broadcasting HD and beyond, to near-lossless studio editing. The v1.0.0 version was released yesterday, and the new VLC version supports playback of .ts/.drc Dirac files.

Eugenia, you should really be more clear in your criticisms.
Dirac is in production use at the BBC, one of the largest and most respected broadcasters in the world. By definition, that makes Dirac ready for professional use. And I've not seen any extensive marketing by the BBC of this format for use outside the professional broadcast market.

If it doesn't suit your amateur mtv video productions of local garage bands, then say that rather then implying it isn't suited for all amateur or especially professional use. And your backhander remarks about png usage also illustrate that fact you are commenting on your own limited usage and workflows rather then " someone deep in all things video-editing".
