This week at NAB in Vegas, RED will be showcasing an array of innovations and new products. Be sure to stop by their booth, #SL1519 to see live demos or new products and software – including the lovelies we have for consideration today.

RED have some new and updated cameras on offer and a few other goodies. We’ll be looking at each of them in detail below (in this order):

  • RED® 4K Broadcast Module – Real-time streaming of live uncompressed 4K footage at 60 fps
  • SCARLET-X® RED DRAGON® – Now in 6K and available for order
  • REDLINK™ Development Kit – REDLINK™ SDK that gives you the power to create remote control apps for the DSMC
  • EPIC-M DRAGON® MONOCHROME – Exclusively a B&W camera capable of capturing 6K images at 1-100 fps

 

And, if this lot isn’t enough to completely drain your budget, head on over to Band-Pro’s booth and check out the Leica Summicron-C Primes they’re demonstrating all week. Then go home and either put a mortgage on your home, or cry for a while. Never fear, we’ll have plenty more shiny things to show you all week long. So Stay Tuned!

Redlink Development Kit

 

RedLink Bridge

RedLink Bridge

ESTIMATED TO BEGIN SHIPPING BY APRIL 11, 2014.

The REDLINK™ Development Kit allows programmers to create custom applications to control their DSMC via mobile device, computer, or microcontroller. The kit contains a USB pre-loaded with the REDLINK SDK sample apps, as well as additional resources. Use the SDK, apps, and resources to create custom applications that allow you to adjust controls on the DSMC, including Record Start/Stop, Shutter Speed, White Balance, ISO, and programmable User Keys. You can also program your custom app to monitor the status of your camera settings.

Completing the REDLINK™ Development Kit is the REDLINK™ Bridge, a wireless module that allows apps to communicate with the DSMC through the REDLINK™ Command Protocol (RCP). Additionally, the REDLINK™ Bridge interfaces with the RED 3-AXIS LENS CONTROL SYSTEM’s T.H.C. (TACTICAL HAND CONTROLLER) to control focus and iris on Canon and Nikon lenses. The REDLINK™ Bridge attaches to the rear of the DSMC brain or compatible rear module, and supports a wireless communication range of approximately 50 ft.
