    EPIC

    We are not just behind schedule anymore… we are embarrassingly late. Trust me when I tell you this is a complicated and aggressive project. When one of the most respected companies in the industry is just releasing their brightest new star that does 1/5 of the resolution, half the maximum frame rate, in a box three times the size and for 3 times the price… that should tell you how tough a trick EPIC is.

    Having said that, we have located the wicked, mean and nasty bug and our engineering team has put a bullet in the back of it's head. That pesky bug has put us behind in our schedule (obviously) since it also held up the work that followed it. We are now making the type of progress we had hoped to be making a few months ago.

    We have working EPIC cameras… and are adding features on a daily basis. Firmware upgrades are happening fast and furious. But please remember that we are not going to release a buggy camera with limited features this time, so keep that in mind. Lots of testing, upgrading, new features, bug patrol… and all of the above happening now. The RED ONE is now one of the most reliable cameras in the industry (after a humble beginning)... EPIC will not be a step backward.

    During this development/testing time we have made the decision to add 13mm of length to the brain (about 1/2" for those who are metric challenged), which means lots of new board spins to fit. This is small stuff compared to the battle we just had on monster bug patrol.

    Tattoo cameras will go out as soon as we have a stable platform with a standard set of features… production to follow as soon as the Tattoo owners give us the thumbs up. We are in a hurry… but not so much as to get it wrong. I don't think it is productive to promise another date… but we all are on the same page. The sooner the better.

    Scarlet is moving along side the EPIC program as the big bug hit it as well. Production of Scarlet will trail EPIC… not exactly sure by how far. A lot of it has to do with just how fast we can get EPIC production rolling and solid.

    In the end… we have a great project going on here. Once again… this is not an easy task (neither was the RED ONE)... which is exactly the way we want it. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else doing anything different.

    OK… next question?

    Where are you in the Scarlet program? Is the 2/3" still in the Frankie Jr. stage or are there working prototypes?
    Any progress on finding a new manufacturing partner?

    Jim and the rest of the RED team, you guys are seriously awesome. Thank you for your time, commitment, hard work, and dedication. Its much appreciated by everyone here! Keep up the good work.

    Is it alright to ask what the bug was/is?

    Any consideration for a RAW module for Epic now that portable RAW recorders are 4k capable and have come down in price and size?

    Some Questions...
    1. When will we see Scarlet footage or an R3D?
    2. What is super secret feature #21 and what cameras does it apply to?
    3. Will there be a price drop on the RED ONE in the near future?
    Nothing clever or informative here... move along.

    Great news Jim,

    Get it right, we can wait.

    I'd love an update on the RPP's, any news on the 65 and others.

    Also, we haven't heard an update about Red Ray in a while.

    All the best,

    Steve

    There are working Scarlet prototypes... EPIC will be manufactured in the US. Scarlet is still undecided.... at least we aren't saying.
