■ Red Epic-M Dragon: 6K Red Dragon sensor-equipped camera making its Japanese debut
Equipped with the 19-megapixel 6K Red Dragon sensor, the Red Epic-M Dragon is a digital still and motion camera with a dynamic range of 16.5 stops, support for ISO 200 to 2000, and capable of shooting at 6K resolution (6144 pixels x 3160 pixels) which is more than 9 times higher than HD. It weighs around 2.3 kg.
The lens size is 30.7 mm (width) x 15.8 mm (length) x 34.5 mm (diagonal). Shooting formats range from 720p RGB (16:9) to 6K raw (2:1, 2.4:1). Project frame rates include 23.98, 24, 25, 29.97, 47.96, 48, 50, and 59.94 fps.

■ Red Motion Mount with built-in electronic ND filter also in first Japanese appearance
The Red Motion Mount, a PL mount that was shown at the NAB Show 2013, is on display for the first time in Japan. The Red Motion Mount is equipped with a fine-tunable electronic ND filter and a global shutter capable of preventing partial illumination by strobe lights, as well as shearing in fast-moving subjects. Using this mount makes it possible to employ the global shutter system in the Epic and the Scarlet. It is also possible to control the system on the screen of the Epic or the Scarlet and conduct fine-tuning up to ND 2.4.

■ The Red Rocket-X with processing speeds 5x faster than the previous Rocket on display
The Red Rocket-X is a PCIe board capable of transcoding and playback of 4K R3D files in realtime at a variety of resolutions, achieving processing speeds 5x faster than the previous Rocket. It supports output from DVI to 4K monitors or projectors as well as output to HD-SDI via Redcine-X of full-quality 2K/1080p scaled-down from 4K footage.
