RED Big Change Coming
RED already has a second major announcement due early next month, company head Jim Jannard says in a community teaser. Having just launched the EPIC and Scarlet revisions and the DSMC system earlier this month, the greater-than-HD camera maker now promises a "big change" on December 3rd and calls the earlier announcements "insignificant" by comparison. Details of the new announcement itself remain a mystery and are unlikely to be provided until the announcement.
Speculation exists that the update will focus on the workflow for the new cameras, including the hardware and software to manage the extremely large and processor-intensive Redcode footage. Others also suggest an entirely new camera, though the tentative EPIC and Scarlet systems scale from 3K to 28K and so are likely to cover most of the expected camera needs.
