Escuse my ignorance
But is Red Ray meant for 4k projection in the home or is it a also meant to be a broadcast device?
If we are going to have 4k TV's, don't we need the ability to deliver 4k first??? I have been bugging AJA and Black Magic to create a by-pass of the HD deck using SSD cards in the form of one of these shuttles of 4.4.4 capture devises. Something that has the ability to communicate with editing systems and broadcast decks so we can create broadcast masters for delivery. Lets face it, HD decks are made by old world thinkers. It's like Arri and sony trying to charge 100k for a 4k camera package. There is no reason why we don't have a simple SSD device that is capable of acting like HD deck where we can deliver on an SSD card. Thinking ahead, there is no reason why we can't have one that does 4k too, and for under 5k.
Or do we?
Everything I read about Red Ray sounds like it is almost what I'm asking for, except the ability to communicate with editing systems. It seems to be marketed to home use or theatres. Were missing a major step and that is production delivery. You redesigned scarlet at the last moment, why not a rework Red Ray to have a Pro model that will be the 4k broadcast delivery system. Red here is you ability to own yet another area of the broadcast world and much of your R&D is done. However don't exclude the smaller guys, lets do this for sub 10k, better at sub 5k. Thunderbolt/SSD.
It seems some what pointless for us to have 4k TV, but no professional system to deliver on that is cost effective for everyone that owns a camera. Now I don't know everything about red ray, so please add your comments.
