PlatinumHD Propvid Goes RED Epic

PlatinumHD Propvid Goes RED Epic

Director/Cinematographer Michael Suzor with ‘Paris’.

In line with our mission statement to be the No 1 property, tourism and lifestyle production network worldwide, PlatinumHD will deploy a Red EPIC on all its big signature productions from late September.

The camera will be used on the Gold Coast, Brisbane, The Sunshine Coast and New Zealand, by the Network’s senior DPs.

This is what RED says about the EPIC: “The name is not an overstatement. The much anticipated addition to the RED family is the answer to the professional’s wildest dreams and exists as the most sophisticated and capable camera ever engineered and built. In a package one third the size of a RED ONE, resides a 5K Mysterium-X™ sensor and a 27 layer ASIC, the most advanced processor of its type in the world, enabling EPIC to capture up to 120 frames per second, each frame at full 14MP resolution. EPIC is engineered to be a DSMC™ (Digital Still & Motion Camera), a camera that excels in both worlds … by design. Providing native dynamic range of over 13 stops and resolution that exceeds 35 mm motion picture film, this is the camera of the epoch. Add to that RED’s newly developed HDRx™ extended dynamic range technology and EPIC boasts an amazing dynamic range of up to 18 stops. Purpose-built for perfect multi-camera synchronization, EPIC comes to market at a time when 3D capture requires the sophistication of a new generation of innovative technology. EPIC, very simply, is epic.”
