Proxy Module – RED

This is important, because RED lost a lot of business to Alexa and other manufacturers because it did not incorporate Prores or DN x HD (Avid) codecs into it’s camera. Anyone shooting straight to broadcast or with a need for quick turnaround on dailies had to transcode

RAW files first. Recently, a connected third party came out with the Meizler Module to do this. Unfortunately it cost $14K. What is signifigant about this new back is it does all those things at a very reasonable $2500. This will put it into direct competition with Sony and all the rest and fills a noticeable gap that RED users have been complaining loudly about for quite some time.



The PROXY MODULE records DNxHD, H.264, and ProRes proxy files

Connects via included HD-SDI cable to your DSMC brain or PRO I/O MODULE and the PROXY MODULE will record your 1080p video feed onto RED MINI-MAGs (64GB, 128GB, or 256GB).
