V-RAPTOR [X] 8K VV combines the strengths of RED’s two families of cameras into one powerful all-purpose workhorse. The frame rates, light sensitivity, and resolution of the V-RAPTOR line combined with the global shutter of KOMODO, the V-RAPTOR [X] 8K VV sensor is the culmination of the latest advancements in digital cinema image making. Using RED’s newest 8K VV sensor, V-RAPTOR [X] X leverages the benefits and flexibility of large format, global shutter, 8K acquisition, all inside of a compact and feature rich body weighing just over 1.8 kg. Initial orders beginning to ship in March 1, 2024.
The New Standard
V-RAPTOR [X] is the first large format global shutter camera available. It is built off the same keystone features found in the original V-RAPTOR, such as 2x 12G SDI’s capable of unique monitoring views, a locking Canon RF style lens mount for rigid and flexible lens selection, and CFexpress Type B media for up to 800MB/s formats such as 8K 120p. In addition, improved in-camera audio pre-amps as well as a redesigned sensor cavity designed to mitigate stray light and improve contrast performance only further builds upon the V-RAPTOR legacy.
V-RAPTOR [X] 8K VV is pushed to new limits with the introduction of Global Vision, a new suite of image processing techniques that use the global shutter sensor in V-RAPTOR [X] to provide even more flexibility and ease of use throughout the production process. Global Vision’s Extended Highlights allows the camera to see 3 stops deeper into highlight detail, providing even softer and more subtle highlight roll-off when in uncontrollable environments. Phantom Track streamlines any Virtual Production environment employing Ghost Frame or Frame Remapping, capturing distinct R3D clips per each sub-frame slice, as well as allowing for monitoring of either slice live on-set over each SDI.
Additionally, the V-RAPTOR [X] and the DSMC 3 platform features advanced connectivity solutions which enable applications such as remote control and monitoring, in-camera Frame.io integration, AWS direct upload, RED Connector for live 8K R3D video over IP or live 4K over SMPTE ST2110, and more...
