Ok ok, I can't help myself. Yes I like to push the RED boys for more useable tools.. so here goes.
RED ROCKET MOBILE: Who wants one. (Manufactured by RED)
Multiple Thunder Bolt, SADA, FIREWIRE ports or any pipe thats quick.
DVI-HDSI-HDMI & Thunder Bolt outputs for monitor viewing.
Since we all have know Fricken idea what APPLE are doing with the MAC TOWERS, and with MAC BOOK PRO's being super powerful these days and best of all, portable.. A RED ROCKET MOBILE like this with SSD CARD reader would be a major asset for a majority of us working on the ROAD or in home offices or small POST HOUSES.
We can backup and transcode all at the same time... Playback on set, grade on set all in realtime. All without dragging a Bloody TOWER around the world.
Transcoding RAW to DPX, PRO RES, DNxHD, Tiff, etc.. is the biggest and slowest hurdle in RED WORKFLOW without a RED ROCKET.. Smooth this part out with a small affordable portable system that can fit in your computer bag and RED just got way faster and easier !!! .
For example... I shot 6 hours of data. Laptop transcode to 4444 PRO RES HD (NO RED ROCKET) 38 hours... !!!!
Talk about do my head in... I could get film back from the lab in 12 hours. YES! thats right.
RED ROCKET Transcode for the same amount is 6.8 hours...! If I had one in that city I ws working in.
I just can't be dragging around a TOWER everywhere. A RED ROCKET mobile would save every project and make on set viewing and transcoding a dream come through.
People power will hopefully push RED to make one of these. VOTE with your posts guys, RED LISTEN.
+ THE 4k PRO RES / DNxHD MODULE is still on my RADAR - Especially with REDGAMMA 3 coming out.
