I recently had the honor of hosting Ted Schilowitz (employee #1) from RED Digital Cinema on Microsoft’s Redmond campus. Ted presented a 4K technology showcase that included RED cameras, HP PCs with Windows post production tools, and a Windows 8 4K multi-mon setup run off a single AMD 7970 video card. Here is a picture of the 4K multi-display set-up from my lab during setup:
Ted’s talk included a fascinating history of RED as they created the first viable digital cinema camera (The RED ONE). In the last 6 years, RED has progressed from a technology concept to a widely adopted system for shooting major motion pictures digitally.
Attendees got the opportunity to touch RED EPIC cameras, and Ted delivered a quick hands-on training session to show how RED footage is acquired with the EPIC and edited on Windows with REDCINE-X PRO and Adobe Premiere Pro CS6. It was an awesome opportunity to get hands-on insights from employee #1 from RED.
Here’s some links to more information about the HP workstations mentioned in the video:
