October 3, 2022 – RED Digital Cinema is the leading manufacturer of professional digital cinema cameras, bringing cinema-grade images and performance to content creators everywhere. The recently released MC-1 B4 to RF lens mount enables broadcast organizations and houses of worship to adopt the latest cinema technology while maximizing their existing investment in professional B4 lenses. The mount is designed specifically for RED’s DSMC3 cameras including the RED V-RAPTOR and KOMODO’s multi-sensor formats and is sold exclusively by DigitalGlue at the low cost of $1,749. After rigorous testing by the RED engineering team to ensure it meets the highest level of required specifications, the MC-1 mount has officially been added to the list of “RED Approved” third-party products.
The budget-friendly MC-1 mount, a 2022 Award of Excellence recipient at NAB, allows production teams to purchase or use a RED camera without needing a new lens, which is the most expensive part of the cinema camera assembly. Matthew Carman, Cinematographer and Creator of the MC-1, notes that “with the new MC-1 B4 to RF mount being available, it now gives RED shooters the largest selection of lens options on the market. From Wildlife to Sports we have everything covered in Broadcast Cinema.” The mount achieves HD 120 frames per second (fps) and UHD 60 fps on the RED KOMODO and HD 480 fps and UHD 240 fps on the RED V-RAPTOR by utilizing the built-in lens doubler while maintaining the lens’ zoom and aperture ranges. Now, broadcast organizations and houses of worship can achieve a broadcast cinematic look with upwards of 17 stops of dynamic range, smooth highlight roll-offs, and exceptional low-light performance. As an official RED systems integrator, DigitalGlue is able to quote and ship back-ordered RED cameras like the 6K KOMODO faster than buying retail.
