REDCAST Module Introduction

This section includes:


The REDCAST® Module (formerly the RED 4K Broadcast Module) provides a 4K Ultra-High Definition (UHD) video stream, enabling you to capture and view action in real-time. The REDCAST Module uses four (4) 1080p 3G-SDI output connections to broadcast 4K video at up to 59.94 frames per second (FPS).

Alternately, you can stream a full-frame 1080p video out of each 3G-SDI connector, providing four (4) additional HD-SDI monitoring and recording paths.

For the first time, the unrivaled crisp and detailed images created by the EPIC DRAGON® and SCARLET DRAGON® cameras can be broadcasted, creating a refined 4K viewing experience. The REDCAST Module adds to the arsenal of features the EPIC DRAGON and SCARLET DRAGON offer. In addition to streaming a live 4K UHD video feed from the REDCAST Module, the camera can simultaneously:

  • Record to SSD at 6K, 5K, or 4K.

  • Live stream at up to 1080p via the HD-SDI connector.

  • Live stream at up to 1080p via the HDMI connector.

Five (5) 1/4-20 mounting holes are built into the top of the module, allowing for various mechanical peripherals to be attached.

You can apply 3D LUTs to the 3G-SDI outputs on the REDCAST Module.
