RED releases 4K Cinema Player

Article Summary:

RED has announced that its Redray 4K Cinema Player will begin shipping this month, with volumes being available from Q1 2013. The player is capable of:

…native 4,096 × 2,160 or 3,840 x 2,160 video playback (in .RED file format) and upscaling. It connects to 4K displays via one HDMI 1.4 port or 4 HDMI 1.3 ports, with an additional HDMI jack needed to push 7.1 audio. It’s even ready for the new high framerate 3D video that we’ll see debut at theaters with The Hobbit.”

Buyers will still need to connect it to a 4K ultra-HD display, and the player alone will retail at $1,450.
