From cinema, virtual production and broadcast, to live events and sports, Red Digital Cinema has showcased different technologies during the show.
RED Digital Cinema will bring its latest innovations to the NAB Show, including the RED Connect Module and RED Connect, a license-enabled feature that allows delivery of full resolution, live R3D video streaming via RED’s V-Raptor and V-Raptor XL camera systems.
B&H (Stand #C8317)
Live Cinematic 8K with The Studio-B&H, in partnership with RED, HP and NVIDIA: The RED Connect live 8K workflow brings the power of R3D images to real-time 8K live output. This includes transferring a stream of 8K RAW files from the just-released RED Connect Module for V-RAPTOR cameras via a fiber connection to a high-performance HP Z8 Fury G5. An HP workstation will use a state-of-the-art NVIDIA RTX 6000 Ada to decode the stream and send live 8K images to an 8K display.
RED Connect will run in conjunction with an SNS/EVO storage server that will transcode R3D files to proxy codecs for direct access by any non-linear editing platform to the transcoded media. This eliminates the need for traditional computing platforms, creating an instant media networking environment and a one-of-a-kind workflow that is a revolution for incredibly efficient on-set workflows.
Magicbox (Stand #C8045)
An interactive experience inside the world’s first mobile virtual production Superstudio with RED, Adobe, Pixera, SISU Cinema Robotics, DrivingPlates.com and Magicbox: Inside this mobile LED volume, visitors will experience either a car process or a train process setup. Footage will be captured on RED KOMODO cameras mounted on SISU camera robots, and then sent directly from the camera to the cloud using Adobe’s integrated software. Within moments, attendees will receive a message with a link to download an edited, shareable mini-movie of their experience.
Microsoft (Stand #W1529)
RED Connect and RED Connect Module Showcase: RED will highlight its RED Connect and RED Connect Module in conjunction with Meta’s Open Video Pipeline (OVP) and Microsoft to enable the creation of an end-to-end live 8K60P streaming system for Meta Quest users and provide live streaming content producers better image quality and ease of use. OVP, a free and open-source reference, eliminates the need to use third-party cloud video infrastructure platforms for processing and packaging that degrade the quality and provides a full end-to-end signal flow design for 8k60+ live video streaming. With Microsoft, OVP can leverage the scalability, security, and reliability of the cloud to deliver high-quality video streams to end users.
A leader in digital cinema capture, RED’s V-Raptor, V-Raptor XL, KOMODO and the recently released RED V-Raptor S35 camera systems will be featured at various partner booths including B&H, ProTech (#C5350) and Videndum (#C5817). Launched last month, the new V-Raptor 8K S35 and V-Raptor XL 8K S35 feature RED’s new S35 sensor with the same fast cinema-quality sensor scan time as its 8K VV counterpart. Twice as fast as previous generations, it maintains a dynamic range with 16.5+ stops and coverage for Super 35mm lenses. The V-Raptor XL 8K S35 also includes RED’s new integrated electronic ND system.
