I have one outstanding question that I have asked (out of a number) that I would especially love to hear some kind of an answer on from the guys at RED.
Can you give us any kind of information about the recording format used for the 1080 and 720 scaled output from scarlet?
Presumably it can't be a true RAW format as it's been scaled and de-bayered. Someone mentioned Redcode RGB is this true? If so any info on it posted anywhere?
If this part is not hardwired into the ASIC and you guys haven't locked it in yet so can't really say then let me know and I'll shut up about it okay?
There are two main types (Although the same type actually) of connections that can be done with a Ethernet/Wifi/Cable/Modem conection.
For a internet conection you need a Internet Operator DNS that will connect you to the so called internet. That can be with all the above mentioned, and you are limited to a download speed and a upload speed asigned by the company (And this limitations vary from what the company offers to also what physically a cable, phone conections, etc. can offer)
Now, a computer can also created a INTERNAL network. This is mostly called LAN (Intranet, Interlan, on the old days). Internal networks works just like internet, but in a local way with a modem o router.
Let's say you have a WIRELESS MODEM connected to your computer. That Modem have the internet conection and it distributes this conections to the other computers on your home.
This is done by creating a INTERNAL NETWORK to which computers on your home connect.
So all computers and apps that connect within this internal network can also connect to eachother by LAN connection (with no need of the internet)
See it like a "closed circuit" internet conection.
Now, the limit of speed here is not what a company can offer you buy what your modem, or Ethernet computer card can offer you.
Common LINKSYS WIFI modems go from 20Mb/s of upload 40mb/s of Download. This mean that if you have Two laptops connected by cable to this modem, and you connect each laptop within this network (Created by one of the laptops with the modem), you can transfer a file with that speed.
This of course may vary. Years ago the limit of a ethernet cable was upgraded to "Gigabit" Ethernet, which is 1gb/s speed on the modem or cable/ethernet Gigabit card. All moderm PC and MACS have this kind of ethernet card.
Lets say 10 years from now a company offers internet speed to 900mb/s, you could still use this cards and wifi modems to that speed. (I here suffer on a 1mb conection)
So, with red, you can transfer files via LAN to a computer at 1gb/s, which is pretty good.
I think I read that post way back when and it got me thinking about an ideal audio module system for the new RED cameras. My posts were earlier in this thread and are quoted below. Any thoughts?
I am sure David Mullen could elaborate a bit more on this. His article about shooting with the Phantom at 1000 frames per second mentioned his need for a lot more light to capture a "dark" type of scene.
Basically, motion issues aside, you will still run into other tech issues trying to get HDR motion.
Will Scarlet/Epic support internal switching or will we need a cross over cable to go direct?
