RED Digital Cinema is advancing its product portfolio of high-quality cameras and sensors with a focus on simplicity, price and quality for customers. Beginning today, RED’s camera lineup will be modified to include one DSMC2 camera BRAIN with three sensor options—MONSTRO 8K VV, HELIUM 8K S35 and GEMINI 5K S35. The single DSMC2 camera BRAIN includes high-end frame rates and data rates regardless of the sensor you choose and in addition to this new value, the streamlined approach will result in a price reduction compared to RED’s previous camera lineup.

RED’s DSMC2 camera BRAIN is a modular system that allows a shooter to configure a fully operational camera setup to meet their individual needs. RED offers a range of accessories including display and control functionality, Input/Output modules, mounting equipment, and methods of powering the camera. The DSMC2 camera BRAIN is capable of up to 60 frames per second at 8K, offers 300 MB/s data transfer speeds and simultaneous recording of REDCODE RAW and Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD/HR recording.

The DSMC2 BRAIN camera BRAIN paired with each of RED’s sensor options provides the ultimate blend of flexibility and performance at an accessible price.

As a result of this change, RED will begin to phase out offering new sales of its RED EPIC-W and WEAPON camera BRAINs immediately. In addition to the changes to the camera lineup, RED will also begin offering new upgrade paths for customers looking to move from older RED camera systems or from one sensor to another.
