Interesting. While this isn't new technology by any means, it is the first I've heard of this company, which hails from Italy I believe.

Take a look at the 2nd video posted, right at around the 10 second mark. You'll notice all of the heads gathering on their catch pans. Once those pans get full, you'll either have to stop and tilt the header back to clear the pans or get out of the combine and clean them yourself if they become too plugged. I'd also question its performance should the crop become downed or layed over.
This design of head has been manufactured for quite some time, it sells mainly on price point alone. Parts and service would be a question I have as well.

Wouldn't want a chopper on a sunflower head. We like to leave our stalks to catch snow in the winter.

It's pretty tough to beat a sunmaster and they're made locally. Why can't someone invent ways of keeping combines from starting on fire in sunflowers? The Lexion 770, with its exhaust cooling system, is the only machine that I know of that doesn't start on fire in sunflowers.

Wheatworld, your a lucky man if you dont have a lexion 770 go up in flowers, Claas were pulling their hair out last year with the amount the went up in smoke in wheat in Europe ?

If 3' stalks aren't hard enough on ur tires we will chop them to 6" so it's like running over metal stakes
Wouldn't it be better to flatten them with a roller or something like a stalk stomper for corn? To me the stalks look like they would be hard on tires after that chopper goes over them.
