The biggest camera news in the universe today from RED, announcing that they have partnered to go into the final frontier.
Here is the rip from RED announcing their cameras in space news…
RED Digital Cinema is pleased to announce it has entered a Space Act Agreement with NASA. A NASA Space Act Agreement is the primary vehicle for NASA to partner with third-parties that allows them to have access to wider range of technologies than is currently available within NASA.
The mutual interest between RED and NASA first began shortly after RED began shipping its first camera, the 4K RED ONE®, back in 2007. Since that time, RED has participated with NASA capturing a variety of rocket and shuttle launches in 4K and above.
But now, the relationship is entering a whole new stratosphere. Literally.
After months of being subjected to some of the world’s strictest testing and qualification standards, the RED EPIC® with the RED DRAGON® 6K sensor will be loaded onto a space cargo vehicle and travel to the International Space Station (ISS) in late 2014 or early 2015. While at the ISS, astronauts will be using the EPIC DRAGON to capture critical footage.
