Recording Formats - Epic X Camera
RED brings to the film industry a new recording format, patented by the own house. This format is called R3D or REDCODE RAW. Default way of recording on all RED cameras in the current market.
This format efficiently encodes the measurements of the MYSTERIUM-X sensor. It stores each color channel separately. In addition, it uses a variable bit rate "wavelet" in order to generate smaller files, making compressions without losing quality. Within the settings of the format, we can choose different comprehension factors in the RED EPIC-X camera, ranging from a 3: 1 to 18: 1 compression.
Depending on the resolution you choose, you can opt for some aspect ratios. It allows capturing in 5K in Full Format, 2: 1, 2.4: 1, 16: 9, 1.22: 1 and Anamorphic in 2x and 1.3x factor. Likewise, it can save in other types of formats (DPX, 4: 2: 2, Quicktime, Avid, MXF ...) but only formats originated at a maximum resolution of 4K. Epic X csmera rental in Camaleon Rental.
REDCODE RAW reaches a maximum frame rates of 120fps at 5K resolutions, and a maximum speed of 300fps recording at 2K resolution.
The data recording media are made on REDMAG 1.8 or RED MINI-MAG recording cards, the latter one, with a maximum data transfer rate of 225 MB / s and 300 MB / s. You are able to choose between RED MINI-MAG of 120GB, 240GB, 480GB and 960GB.

Also, an output to 3G-SDI and HDMI monitor with frame lines or clean signal. These signals can be in 1080p at 4: 2: 2, 720p at 4: 2: 2 SMPTE Timecode, with horizontal auxiliary metadata and with 24 bit audio at 48kHz.
The EPIC-X camera allows connection wirelessly or via ethernet, RS232 and GPI Trigger. The EPIC-X camera has two channels of uncompressed audio 24-bit at 48kHz. Epic X camera rental in Camaleon Rental.
Workflow - Epic X Camera
The use of REDCINE X-PRO software is recommended when working with R3D files. It is a software composed by a line of programs for transcoding and manipulation (at the level of scale, color, reframing ...) of the REDCODE RAW files. The REDCINE X-PRO will create a new file from the native, but keeping the RAW file without having suffered some type of loss.
