512GB TURBO SSD - Data Rate almost double current media. Take advantage of Epic's higher Frame rates at a lower compression. Priced to match. A lot of Epic user's dream..

32GB Lower Cost SSD - Data Rate almost half current media. Matched to Scarlet's top speed. Priced to match. A lot of Scarlet user's dream..

Wow! That's for me. Live concerts have been a bit challenging, even with 256GB. Thank You!

Steve Sherrick
04-16-2012, 12:26 AM
Wow! Didn't see that one coming. Also opens some things up for Red Ones as well. Any hint at price for 32GB?

Very very cool! 512gb mags - insanity! :D

Are there eventual plans to make 3 tiers of Redmags at different speeds and capacities? ie a 512gb scarlet speed Redmag, or a 64gb Turbo Mag? Though, not much recording will fit onto a 64gb Turbo SSD if the cam is being rolled at 120fps with low compression!

Sam Winzar

512 is going to be great for documentary and live event work!

so the 128 cards are the new 64 gb cards.
4xpack`s

I'm still saving up for my scarlet and every time you guys release something like this my start up cost gets just a little cheaper truly an amazing company

Nicely done on the colors! Great news on the 512GB card. :)

Richard Gale

Ahhhhh... "lower cost SSD" ...that's music to my ears too.
Much appreciated!

Cüneyt Kaya
04-16-2012, 12:38 AM
so with the 512 cards 5k FF 100fps in HDR is possible?

Chuck Z
04-16-2012, 12:42 AM
Take advantage of Epic's higher Frame rates at a lower compression.
How soon will we see a data rate/compression table?

Zack CC
04-16-2012, 12:48 AM
Different color mags are GREAT for quick visual ID across a set. maybe not against mags of the same type, but especially good given speed variance vs orignals. Good visual cue.

Scott Snare
04-16-2012, 12:49 AM
Another revolution. Bring it on!

Eric Z

That's probably a Micron C400 SATA3 SSD in that 512GB enclosure.

Great news! Any chance of revised prices on the "older" SSD's?

Ketch Rossi
04-16-2012, 12:52 AM
Just upgraded our SSD's to the 256GB ones, to be able to handle 3D at 48fps in HDRX, 512GB SSD? Now this is an interesting option indeed, LOVE IT, and LOVE THE COLOR TOO... ;)

Available for purchase when?

Looks really compelling. What do you mean "priced to match?"

Will Keir
04-16-2012, 12:59 AM
What data rate will the 512gb sustain? Twice the 256gb? Priced around 5k I'm thinking?

Is the 512gb going to have the red sheen same as the picture?




512 is going to be great for documentary and live event work!

absolutely. Probably my favorite update. Soon we'll have 1tb and 2tb ssd.

Martin Weiss

Now the question is do I want 16 baby mags with 32GB capacity or go all out max speed SUPERMAG 512gb... guess i've got some time to decide ;) either way, THANK YOU for giving us even more options. . . RED is the best.

Fantastic! Very good news for Scarlet owners!!!

Patrick Grossien
04-16-2012, 02:44 AM
F*** yeah! Love the glam rock red and battleship grey also!
Now about these prices! And packages ;)

Will Keir
04-16-2012, 02:48 AM
No question here, get the 512, more possibilities, less data management. Use the extra time to shoot more.

its all about options.. you wanted more.. so we gave you more. Cheaper, slower cards for the budget minded Scarlet customer or the Epic guys that shoot with lower data rate demands, and Ferrari-fast cards for people that want to shoot high frame rates with even less compression or are anticipating DRAGON.

Kwan Khan
04-16-2012, 03:05 AM

Rob Ruffo
04-16-2012, 03:46 AM
That sounds great! But still wondering... How much for the Ferrari?

Brett Clements
04-16-2012, 04:19 AM
You guys have gone nuts. And this is only a 1/4 of what u r rolling out?

Adam Howden
04-16-2012, 04:22 AM
The 512 is AWESOME, but with the OLED Bomb, Pro I/O I might have to wait a little. Hopefully they won't go out of backorder too quickly! :-)

Adam Howden
04-16-2012, 04:27 AM
Any specs on exactly what frame rates and compressions we'd be able to get with the new 512gb card on the Epic-X?

roryhinds
04-16-2012, 04:35 AM
what is the price point on these puppies ?

Sven Seynaeve

+1 on price ????

Daniel Peters
04-16-2012, 05:32 AM
This is great news - im sure both types of cards will be very handy for Epic-Scarlet shooters
great news ;)

Jeff Lower
04-16-2012, 07:07 AM
Thanks for the option on the slower card, it will be nice not to have to buy the more expensive cards that I can't use the full potential of anyway.

Now if we can get those in larger sizes than 32GB that would be awesome too.

More choices. Love it.

PatrickW
04-16-2012, 07:18 AM
Yeah, affordable media. This is wonderful news.

I hope eventually that lower speed media will trickle into the higher capacity cards as well...

Erik Vanlenten
04-16-2012, 07:42 AM
This is really awesome too see red accommodating both Epic & Scarlet owners. The 32gb cards could be really useful for a firmware backup in your kit!

Al Lougher
04-16-2012, 07:45 AM
As a "budget conscious" new Scarlet owner I'm interested to see how cheaper these cards will be. Having dropped almost $2k on two 64GB cards that I may not be using to their full potential, I would rather sell them and reinvest some money into batteries etc.

Gary Jones
04-16-2012, 08:05 AM
Yeah, affordable media. This is wonderful news.

I hope eventually that lower speed media will trickle into the higher capacity cards as well...

Yeah, I am considering Scarlets as B cams for live events and the main thing stopping me is the cost of the media. The 32GB affordable media is definitely a step in the right direction but it is kinda restrictive in size. Having an alternative all the way through the range would be amazing.

David Collard

Kemalettin Sert

hope 32GB SSD is around 200$ :) last time i checked 128GB SSD was (which is toshiba THNSNC128GMMJ) 250$ on aliexpress.
Jarred which brand ssd in 512GB one?

Isak Dinesen

32GB Lower Cost SSD - Data Rate almost half current media. Matched to Scarlet's top speed. Priced to match. A lot of Scarlet user's dream..


Cool,
but will the 32GB SSD be fast enough for the future Scarlet with Dragon-upgrade?

Michael Hastings
04-16-2012, 08:52 AM

You can always lower the data rate via frame rates or compression ratios to match the media.

Jarred Land
04-16-2012, 08:52 AM

It will be fast enough at some compression ratio..

AndrewThomas
04-16-2012, 08:59 AM
Hi Jarred, any time frame on when these 32GB cards will make it in the store? Thinking I may shift from the idea of getting 4 256GB cards to getting one 512GB and a bunch of 32s. I actually am already a little paranoid about filling a 64GB card...

Can I get it in Boysenberry blue?

Jon Carr
04-16-2012, 12:08 PM
the 32gb seems to be a nice firmware SSD or a nice card to start the abby or martini on so the DIT can start dumping the bigger card earlier. Would make a good on set indication that were close to wrapping when the grey SSD gets inserted.

Dennis Guskov
04-16-2012, 12:19 PM
Who's selling their black SSDs? :) (To buy a red one, obviously!)
:)

Elsie N
04-16-2012, 12:42 PM
To early to make that decision. Depends on price of Red colored media and the redcode setting allowed for 6k.

brian hanson
04-16-2012, 01:15 PM
I'll be picking up a couple of the 32gb cards. Nice color too.

Mestizo Devon
04-16-2012, 01:18 PM
Price?????

paulherrin
04-16-2012, 01:26 PM
my guess if 'priced to match' means what i think it means...

32 LOW = $250
512 TURBO = $12,000

Andrae Palmer
04-16-2012, 01:35 PM
my guess if 'priced to match' means what i think it means...

32 LOW = $250
512 TURBO = $12,000

I'm thinking 3200 * 2... so $6400.

Elsie N
04-16-2012, 01:35 PM
I'm thinking the 512 turbo to be more like $5,000... maybe $5500.

EDIT: Maybe even less if the price of flash memory falls. Red has a history of reducing the cost of media without reducing the price, ala when they doubled the capacity of the Red Drive and kept the price the same.

Mike P.
04-16-2012, 01:56 PM
Is there going to be a "lower end" series - e.g. 64, 128, 256gig - that are all half the current data rate and priced to match, or just the 32gb?

Mestizo Devon
04-16-2012, 01:57 PM
Is there going to be a "low" series -- e.g. 64, 128, 256gig Low -- that are priced to match or just the 32gb?

I'm wondering the same, and when are they going to be in stock?

sorry guys... there's no way. the 32 has HALF the datarate and the 512 has DOUBLE. definitely going to be over 6,400, probably at least 10k... come on now. we're talking about reality, not 'what i'd like to pay'. sure, that would be awesome if it was a nickel... not gonna happen.

Elsie N
04-16-2012, 02:51 PM
Paul, How long has the SSD module series been out? A year or more? And speaking of more... Moore's law. So, I stick by my prediction.

BrandonChristensen
04-16-2012, 03:27 PM
32GB?

I don't think I fully understand why there'd be a 32, wouldn't it only record roughly 15 minutes? What's the benefit of this? Other than it probably being half the price of the 64?

Ketch Rossi
04-16-2012, 03:29 PM

would be nice to have the right price on the 512 ;)

AndrewThomas
04-16-2012, 04:21 PM
I'm going to guess the Turbo 512 is going to be a 50% per gig premium over the standard 256, so $9600. I'm really hoping the 32GB cards are $350 (or less ;) ).

Curran Giddens

I'm getting one just to store a copy of the current firmware in case of emergency.

Shawn Nelson
04-16-2012, 05:01 PM
SSDs have been out for like a year at the same price, so I'm really hoping our friend Moore comes along and we see a price shift. I've been waiting on purchasing any more until that happens.

I realize this isn't a democracy :-), but I'd love to see something more like...
512 - $4000
256 - $2000
128 - $1000
64 - $500

I doubt those prices will happen, but I'm sure if they did they'd see a huge spike in demand. I'd buy a many more cards at those prices instead of copying cards as often as I am.

Tom Lowe
04-16-2012, 08:36 PM
With the data rate doubled for 512 cards, can we shoot high framerates like 96 fps with less compression?

Rob Ruffo
04-16-2012, 09:27 PM
With the data rate doubled for 512 cards, can we shoot high framerates like 96 fps with less compression?

From what I know about data throughput issues, yes, absolutely. At a CPU level it's actually harder for a cam to compress more in real time than less, so the CPU side would be even less problematic. Jarred stated specifically this would allow better comp. rates at high FPS.

A little bump on asking for a better understanding of what Jarred meant by "priced to match"?

AndrewThomas
04-16-2012, 10:39 PM
It's pretty clear, isn't it? The turbo 512 will be a $/GB premium over the regular 256/128/64 which will be a $/GB premium over the 32GB budget card.

Rob Ruffo
04-16-2012, 11:39 PM

Thanks Andrew - it was not that clear. Americans have turns of phrase which do not translate clearly to other cultures. Here "priced to match" would usually mean same price as existing products, which in this case did not make sense.

In this case - "priced to match" indicates being priced in accordance with the change in features mentioned/markets targeted.

AndrewThomas
04-17-2012, 12:23 AM
Oh, ha Mr. Ruffo! Quite thoughtless of me to forget the international audience. My apologies :) Yes. "priced to match" in this context means "priced to reflect the performance difference from the original cards."

Chuck Z
04-17-2012, 02:49 AM
I don't see the 512 GB in the shop. Is it supposed to be there now or is it coming down the pike?

You are thinking a little too Ferrari on your 512GB estimate, but pretty close on your 32GB guess :)

Nook Kim
04-17-2012, 11:23 AM

04-17-2012, 12:18 PM
are you also planning on releasing other sizes (as in 64s 128s or 256s) for the red ferraris and the grey vw beetles?

just found your Questions thread :)



Hard to make any guesses in the media game.. things change so fast. lets see how the 32GB cards do :)

Patrick Grossien
04-17-2012, 12:49 PM
With the same factor as for the 256GB cards, the 512 would be $ 6,400. So anything from 5000 to 7000 might be a realistic guess.

As that factor is not including a Turbo premium, this might be off quite a bit, but it is also not including that the $ per GB ratio is sinking towards the bigger cards.

Ben Coleman
04-17-2012, 01:50 PM
You are thinking a little too Ferrari on your 512GB estimate, but pretty close on your 32GB guess :)

Maybe this is a pipe dream but I would love to see a 4 pack of 32's for no more than a grand. That would be very competitive to the higher speed CF cards.

Steve Sherrick
04-17-2012, 01:57 PM
Jarred, on the 32GB cards, how does that affect the Red One resolutions? Will these be qualified to shoot up to 4K 16:9 at RC36?

Thanks!

Tom Lowe
04-17-2012, 02:20 PM
Will there be faster 128 and 256 cards soon?

Rob Anderson

Load me up with a Honda-priced Ferrari 512 please! Can't wait.

Christian Jadot
04-17-2012, 05:00 PM
On a side note. It is really cool that the limiting factor on the Epic is the media and not the camera.

Daniel Reed
04-17-2012, 09:16 PM

[...]pretty close on your 32GB guess :)

Hmm hopefully closer to $300 than $400. A 4-pack of 64GB cards is about $800 each. $700 for a 64GB of 32GB cards isn't much of a discount if you have to buy new cards when you upgrade to Dragon. Even $600 per 64GB is pushing my enthusiasm.

Second that question - will it be possible to use the 32GB with the RED ONE?
best wishes and kind regards,
Martin

04-18-2012, 11:36 PM
What is the firmware requirements for using the new 32gig size ? Will I be able to use an older firmware ?
I liked the internal sync feature, it was working ok for me, now it's gone. For some things I may want to use the old firmwares on occasion.

512GB TURBO SSD - Data Rate almost double current media. Take advantage of Epic's higher Frame rates at a lower compression. Priced to match. A lot of Epic user's dream..

32GB Lower Cost SSD - Data Rate almost half current media. Matched to Scarlet's top speed. Priced to match. A lot of Scarlet user's dream..

I don't think I fully understand why there'd be a 32, wouldn't it only record roughly 15 minutes? What's the benefit of this? Other than it probably being half the price of the 64?

Curran (as well as a couple of others) already noted the use as an emergency firmware SSD.

This need was the subject of extended threads on REDUser as well as individual discussions with Bomb Squad reps and RED product development personnel.
RED was and is listening - more importantly, they think it through - if it makes sense, they respond with something we can use.

There are other uses for this product.
For example, once "still mode" or "time lapse mode" are enabled - makes a lot of sense to have these cards.
Dedicating a card for storing essential files downstream - remember, neither the Scarlet or EPIC have SD card slots - who knows what RED has under development...
Someone else mentioned quick reference / startup files for the DIT on location - great idea.


All I can say is a very big "THANK YOU" to all involved with either promoting the idea and developing the product.

Edit: And about the 512's: +++++ Yeah Baby- those will rock!

Enough people longed for a cheaper card. For one a lot of Scarlet Users and then a lot of people who want a small, cheap card as a firmware carry-on ;) Also for stills this might be worthwhile.

Also, as these are slower than the standard black SSDs, the 32GB will surely come in cheaper per gigabyte. Think about a $300 price point or similar. Jarred already mentioned $350 is close.
I don't expect them to be half the price of a 64GB. That really wouldn't make too much sense, especially not if they are slower!

32GB Lower Cost SSD - Data Rate almost half current media. Matched to Scarlet's top speed. Priced to match. A lot of Scarlet user's dream..

half the size and half the data rate of a 64GB... wouldn't that sum up to a quarter of the price ? hehehe!

It will definitely be interesting what the 32s can pull of on an EPIC. So if you buy these, you know what they will produce if you rent or step up sometime in the future.

Hey Jarred,

This is a dream indeed. Any specs on the compression ratios at the higher frame rates on the new 512? Also need any Beta testers? Great to see you at NAB, reminds me of 12 months ago! :)

While as I said in other threads as well, I can't wait for the 512GB turbo SSD's, as even so I moved entirely to the 256GB SSD's, we are chowing them up like candy on the set of Rape of a Beauty, as we do lots of 120fps 5k for the Glamour Fashion and Beauty stuff, plus using HDRx for other scenes,
and recording 5:1 and 3:1 at 24fps, and we are still in Pre-Production, imagine what will happen in Principal Photography, also we are shooting in two Languages, so Double takes on everything.


My solution for now?


Easy, have the rear SSD and use 2 256GB SSD's... ;)


Of course this will double once we get the 512's... ;)

I really like the Rear SSD Module, I ABSOLUTELY HATE to have to stop recording because of luck of media, so if RED was to release a 1TB SSD I would sale the 512GB ones and buy those, with the Rear SSD Module I fill safer.

This is of course for those type of shoots were I need the extra long continuos recording times, as in Narrative we can control the times, most of the time any ways.

I have been using it for a while now, and never had a single problem with it, as it does not really stick out that much at all in proportion to the camera line of occupied space, so it would be very difficult to bomb in to it.

The love for the Modularity of the EPIC is without end, you can literally set up the camera in any which way you want, this three set ups are only few of many I have done and tired out today, we mounted and dismounted the camera about 30 times... ;)

Hi All,

Has there been any updates or further announcements regarding the scarlet-sized Red Mags? I recall reading a post by Jarred that mentioned the upcoming battleship grey cards had their capacity increased to 48 GB while keeping the targeted price point the same. Additionally if I recall correctly, the same post stated a 9/28/12 release date target. I can't seem to locate that post anymore on Reduser - perhaps it was all just a dream! :coolgleamA:

I've also heard recent "rumors", which I suspect are nothing more then water-cooler gossip, that the Red Mag Mini and the Scarlet sized Red Mag are being merged into one and the same, aka a bracketing sleeve on a mini can be used in place of a standard Red Mag on Scarlet(and Epic).

Any information to clear up the subject is greatly appreciated. I'm looking forward to purchasing more memory from Red soon. Thanks All.

Nothing new to add.. We had to re certify the bigger mags remember. it went up to 48GB and have finished testing.. there is actually a few extra gigabytes that showed up along the way for free .. But we will continue to sell them as 48GB.

Sorry for the delay in update... we found a (rare) self destruct sequence on the 48GB cards last week that required a card firmware change.. The fix is complete but it needs to go through a couple of weeks of testing to make sure everything is rock solid.

Can anyone confirm whether or not the Mini-Mags are able to record full res 4k as well as proxies? I know there is talk of an adapter for them to work in the regular SSD slot so I am wondering if that means they can also be used for full res recording.

Also, was a price/release date ever hinted at? I've been gone from the community for a while.

I do get your point, but probably out of the same reason someone wouldn't buy the 512GB. Although they are faster and cheaper per GB than any of them.

Ok the 48Gb could be slower as of :

"REDMAG 1.8" SSD (48GB) is tailored for the data rates of the SCARLET-X camera"

But it would be cool to know what data rate they accept on the Epic?

5k up to what compression/frame rate?

Are there any speed difference between 128 / 256 / 512 GB?

Thanks a lot.

Patrick, the 48GB is said to be half the speed of the 64, 128 and 256 GB SSDs and the 512GB is double than that of these standards.
I just don't know what that turns out to be in terms of compression ratio.

EDIT: see first post... stupid me ;)

can i use 48GB SSD full performance on Epic also?

Finally found it :)
So the higher compression ratios will be enabled via firmware update when they are stable:


Yes they are the turbo ( red colored ) cards, speeds we are slowly ramping speed up through firmware to make sure stability is priority.. The 3.3 Build has 512GB support, in the following modest improvement in ratios:

Original REDMAG
5K WS
24 - 3:1
30 - 3:1
48 - 5:1
60 - 6:1
96 - 10:1
120 - 12:1


Turbo REDMAG Build 3.3
5K WS
24 - 3:1
30 - 3:1
48 - 5:1
60 - 6:1
96 - 9:1
120 - 11:1

with the 48GB on EPIC you will most probably loose some higher compression ratios and only achieve something similar to those that are enabled with SCARLET.

I see the 48GB are on the Red site for sale but there isn't any specs on what they will actually do? Would be great to have some detailed specs

Here you go, the 48GB is the old 32GB, you just getting an extra 16GB for FREE... ;)




512GB TURBO SSD - Data Rate almost double current media. Take advantage of Epic's higher Frame rates at a lower compression. Priced to match. A lot of Epic user's dream..

32GB Lower Cost SSD - Data Rate almost half current media. Matched to Scarlet's top speed. Priced to match. A lot of Scarlet user's dream..

What's the read/write speed of these new 512GB SSDs?

Jon Shaw

Has RED actually released what the 48GB cards can do? If / when Scarlet gets a dragon upgrade will they work then?

They can record at 112MB/s which is half that of normal cards. According to the calculator (http://www.red.com/tools/recording-time) you shouldn't have many problems shooting 6k at 24 fps if the scarlet dragon goes that high, but you'd also have less than 10 minutes of recording time at 8:1 compression.

Does anyone know what the read speed of the 512GB cars is?
I'm considering getting an ssd card for fast offloading in the field.
The Samsung 930 has 400MB/s write speed and the 940 has 520MB write speed but cost a bit more. If the Red card can actually read in 500 it will save 20% of offloading which would make it worth $150 more.

Has there been any word out on the frame rates/compression rates for the 512gb card yet?

Pierre Alt

512 gb : any experience now ?
Any specs on the compression ratios at the higher frame rates on the 512 gb ?
Real difference compression/frame rates between 256 and 512 gb card ?

Thanks for your answer(s) !

is there a chart with what the 256 can do? I'll put out my epic and 512 card and tell you the options

please do so, Chad.

I wonder if getting a 512MB makes sense, mainly for high frame rate, less artifacts shooting.

Thank you

In need of 4x 512GB cards for a dive shoot in SA one week end of august... Have these card even been available, or just something to come in the future?

Pretty sure they must have been available at some point Bjorn because I've seen peoples SSD collections and was surprised to see the red coloured ssd's.

I think they have just been out of stock for a while.

I assume these are not compatible with the Red One?
Does anyone know?

Brownian motion in Pinewood have some to rent. Maybe Jeff can help you out from there....

Every time I buy media I wish the 512's were back in stock, its painful to my wallet not having them around as we love our large SSDs for the type of work we do.

If you need to rent some we are using them on Transformers. Zach and Steve and Brook bought a ton of them and might rent you some. They are so beautiful in there red anodizing.

You do need to either power your reader or have a good USB 3 connection.

512's have been out for a while, they did need a firmware update or two, but seem to be alright now. You have to power your REDMAG reader from the AC adapter since these SSDs seem to draw more power than the smaller mags.

I have one 512 in my kit. Need to buy a couple more and will probably do so once in stock again... in prep for Dragon. :)

Wht is the compression rates for Dragon 6K using these 512GB SSD VS Epic MX ?
