RED's next-gen cameras to get demo

RED early today made clear its efforts to persuade videographers by promising to hold a "RED Day" February 13th. At the Los Angeles gathering, the company plans to show prototypes of its long-delayed EPIC and Scarlet cameras along with some of their accessories. It additionally plans to show the current RED ONE camera outfitted with the new generation's Mysterium-X sensor and to show 4K footage at its native resolution using a Sony 4K projector.

More details are expected in the run-up to the event, RED chief Jim Jannard says.

Originally slated to ship in production form as early as this year, EPIC and Scarlet have been pushed back due to a combination of acknowledged optimistic predictions as well as the technical challenges of the camera system: besides developing completely new 3K, 5K and larger sensors, RED has also insisted its new video cameras use a completely modular system that adapts to the shooting environment, such as DSLR-style photography using still camera lenses as well as studio, handheld and even stereoscopic 3D recording.

The very earliest EPIC cameras are still due to ship this year but will be delivered only to a very small number of testers.
