RED's Other NAB Announcements: a Boatload of Accessories and a 4K Projector/Player

04.16.12 @ 4:05AM Tags : , , , , ,

The new 6K Dragon Sensor isn’t the only thing RED is announcing at NAB — far from it. While the Dragon upgrade is aptly-named after a mythical creature — and will remain so until its spec sheet becomes a reality — some of these other RED announcements are actual products. Others, like their 4K Laser Projector, continue their wildly ambitious streak of announcements long preceding actual availability.

I’m not in Vegas this year myself, unfortunately, as I’m prepping my feature Man-child for a week of meetings at the Tribeca Film Festival (no, the film is not playing at the festival — we have not shot it yet! — but I’m fortunate enough to be a Tribeca grantee, thus my participation). Tribeca starts this week and so it was a case of unfortunate timing; however, Joe is in Vegas and will be exploring many of the new announcements and offerings in person for us.

So, what are RED’s non-sensor NAB announcements? Here they are (ship dates are RED’s estimates):

In other RED news, via Cinescopophilia, there’s also word of an external RED Rocket enclosure that enables Thunderbolt connectivity. Available for preorder from mLogic.

RED’s website is also relaunching, which was much-needed (hopefully this will also improve their order history page), and is also set to provide more learning materials.

We’re all here for the same reason: to better ourselves as writers, directors, cinematographers, producers, photographers... whatever our creative pursuit. Criticism is valuable as long as it is constructive, but personal attacks are grounds for deletion; you don't have to agree with us to learn something. We’re all here to help each other, so thank you for adding to the conversation!

    hey ! i am coming to tribeca film festival!

  • If I’ve read this correctly huge news for theater owners 4k projection at affordable prices. Surely other companies will have to come down in price. Christies pricy projectors are not for independent art houses and film festivals. I suspect Canon will follow in a year with a projector.
