This is excellent news.

Just for the record, CPU use is indeed lower with Hap as it uses a faster secondary-(de)compressor (Snappy). If you/Resolume feel unfairly represented on that page then do get in touch - it's intended to be a fair comparison.

For Hap and Hap Alpha artifactsing (artifactsong?) is very very similar. Below the High quality setting we use the GPU to encode so results will vary between machines - but are generally reasonable and encoding is fast. At High and above results should be extremely similar to DXV.
Hap Q has quality far beyond anything currently in DXV - but then so are its data-rates, as you observe.
Anyway, thanks for your support!
