This weekend’s IBC Show, which opens today in Amsterdam, Netherlands, has all of our favourite manufacturers, showing off their wares to the world. RED Digital has all its bits and pieces out for demonstrations, including the newly announced 7-inch Touch LCD Screen and the Dragon Epic, which has just made it’s way to Europe.

RED will have attendees lined up through the exhibition hall, all trying to get a hands on with the Dragon and if we were there [insert sobbing here], we’d be first in line. One thing we’d like to take a squizz at, is the newly announced RED Touch 7.0” LCD with the DSMC Interchangeable OLPF Mount.

It goes without saying thatone of the world’s finest cinema cameras, the 6K RED Dragon, will be demonstrated, but RED have a new 4K broadcast module to spruik with it.

The Dragon will be paired with the RED 4K Broadcast Module to demonstrate real-time streaming of live uncompressed 4K footage. Another brilliant display will be the RED 3-Axis Lens Control System paired to the T.H.C. (Tactical Hand Controller) through the REDLINK Bridge showcasing the DSMC system’s remote focus and iris control capabilities. There’s also talk of OSX & iOS apps for remotely controlling all of RED’s DSMC cameras, including precise focus control, recording settings, playback, looks, curves, and more all via wifi or ethernet.

Also on display will be the RED SWITCHBLADE-M, a slim and lightweight interface solution that mounts to the side of the EPIC or SCARLET.

During Saturday’s show (from 10:00am to 11:30am), RED is giving its Big Screen Theater presentation. Attendees can experience a live 4K broadcast demonstrations with real-time graphics, while simultaneously capturing 6K R3DRAW masters.

In addition, House of Cards Lead Colorist Laura Jans-Fazio [insert more sobbing here] will be giving an exclusive presentation on the color grading process used for season two of the Netflix Original Series. Attendee’s will hear her walk through the creative process, using House of Cards 5K RED EPIC R3D footage, grading live on FilmLight’s Baselight system in 4K.

If you’re lucky enough to be attending the show, you can find RED’s booth at 10.A10. We can already hear our Editor Nicole Boyd, pushing for tickets for next year’s conference.




The Touch is a 60 Hz, 323-ppi display panel, used for recording and reviewing R3D footage with a 1920 × 1136 resolution, with a 1000:1 contrast, and is bright enough for operation in high ambient light. The lightweight display mounts to the DSMC BRAIN or other tactical component using standard 1/4-20 mounting points. Featuring near 360° rotation, a lay-flat hinge design, as well as image flip and flop capabilities.

If you prefer to use a viewfinder, along with a display, then it’s worth picking up the extra +1 Adaptor Module with Pro EVF (LCOS or OLED) which comes in it’s own pack.
