NAB 2010 Report – Storage


RedRay from Red Digital plays back in very high fidelity at 4k at only 15Mb/sec


From Indie 2.0: “The Red Ray looks amazing. It’s big and being billed at the replacement for digital cinema servers (by Doremi, etc.). It plays back in very high fidelity at 4k at only 15Mb/sec, which is a lower datarate than standard def DVDs. Not sure how it works, but it’s some sort of amazing kickass compression. We say the proof, as apparently the Red reel we saw (which looked stunning on the 4K projector) was projected using Red Ray.”
