2 K and 4 K Editing

For video productions that will be displayed on a large screen, or just to create a higher-resolution image than HD’s measly 1,080 lines, camera recording systems are available to record video with as much as 4,000 lines of resolution. The Red One camera and the Sony Cine Alta are two of the digital cinematography tools that Hollywood has embraced.

The Red Drive is an external hard drive array set to the RAID 0 configuration. The drive has FireWire 800, FireWire 400, and USB 2.0 ports, and it may be directly connected to a computer via any of those interfaces. It appears as a standard external hard drive, and files containing the footage may be used the same as with any other computer files.

Red offers compact flash drives (CF) for 2 K and 4 K resolutions, but the run times are limited with CF cards. The company also makes a RAM solid-state storage disk that provides longer run times with solid-state memory rather than a hard drive. RedCode Raw is the company’s proprietary audio/video format with the file extension .R3D. QuickTime may be used to open the files, or the R3D files may be processed by software that natively supports the RedCode codec.
