RED takes EPIC pre-orders, preps iPhone preview streaming

RED 5K camera moves to stage 2 with proxy module

RED used the occasion of the NAB trade show to firm up its camera plans. It's near shipping the very early test versions of the EPIC, known as Tattoo models, to its closest customers; these should arrive in May. Pre-orders have also begun for the stage two program of existing RED ONE owners and should see the $19,500 camera reach buyers in roughly July or August.

The EPIC is the first to use RED's new Mysterium-X sensor and, in its first form, will capture 5K video.

When they ship, both the EPIC and the compact Scarlet will have the option of a new proxy module. The device will graft to the back of the camera and will create a full, live 1080p video stream in H.264. All the footage is saved to CompactFlash, but it can also push the video securely to either a computer on the set or an iPhone or iPad, albeit at a lower resolution. It should be useful at a minimum for daily footage reviews but could also send video to editors in remote locations and livestream HD video to the Internet through a server.

RED plans to ship the module in September for about $2,500.
