    1. The situation in Japan has affected us, along with the rest of the industry. We are like ants looking for an alternate route to the sugar. It is affecting EPIC-X and Scarlet 8X the most. We can't give specific dates because we are in line for parts from alternate suppliers along with everyone else. We do know that we are sitting here with a ton of inventory of parts and pieces ready to roll and the latest it could possibly be to get EPIC-X in production is June. We are trying for sooner. Even if we begin production in June, we think we can clear all orders by end of summer. We have purchased, at great expense, parts to make EPIC-Ms... and are ramping up production again on this model.

    2. We announced the RED Dragon. It is of the Monstro family and is scheduled to be released in 2012. The significance of this sensor is that it is an upgrade to the current EPIC-X and EPIC-M and not a new brain. Obsolescence obsolete is alive.

    3. We have shown the iPad "Mission Control" application.

    4. We are working on a home 4K laser projector.

    5. There is a new REDCINE-X to be released this week with Rocket support for EPIC and a ton of new features. N/C as always.

    6. REDray Professional is scheduled to ship in June. Price to be announced prior to shipping. Well under $10K. REDray consumer in 2012 under $1000.

    The uncertainty of supply chain weighs heavily on us. As paralyzed as we feel, we acknowledge that there are many others in Japan that continue to suffer unthinkable pain and consequences. The news is now diverting away from Japan, but the significance of the situation does not track with the news. It continues to be unimaginable.

    Thanks to all of our customers for your support and patience. What we are attempting to do is unprecedented in any industry. We are swinging for the fences. Apparently, we are beginning to inspire others to step up their game. We like that. But we still are continuing to stretch towards the impossible for our customers and supporters.

    Thanks Jim.

    Being able to get the Monstro sensor as an upgrade makes my day!

    Hang in there, and I will too.

    June's not so bad (For EPIC X)! It's a relief to many, I bet, if it turns out to be true. Thanks, Jim

    I wasn't expecting to hear anything about release dates as the Japan quake probably has those (and maybe even prices?) up in the air, but I was really hoping we'd get final specs on Epic-S and Scarlet (not sure how much the HDRx upgrade has changed the latter)...

    By the way the iPad app is really cool.

    We have not and will not post the size and specs of the RED Dragon sensor until we are ready to ship. We are no longer interested to telegraph our roadmap to our competitors. I will say that the RED Dragon is significant.

    Thanks Jannard for the update, good to know about the projector! can't wait to see it, especially if its a home one and REDRay Pro...

    Have you guys got a rough idea yet on update for specs list and stages update for the X,S and Fixed? Is it possible that we'll see the update before next month?

    Very awesome stuff though with the Dragon program, really great for those taking the dive with the X

    It seems hollow to post now about EPIC-S specs until we recover from the supply chain issues and get production rolling. EPIC-S comes after EPIC-X. The frame rates and date rates are less, as is the price.
