RED Modular Storage Unit Goes High Style, High Function
But this year at the NAB expo, the company came out swinging with something a little different, and it's something that may actually strike you as useful (even coming from a company that sells camcorders worth more than the average automobile). The new RED Station is a modular storage unit, which boasts the same classic design as RED's other wares and offers a variety of options for storing shoots or anything else. There's a hard drive module (room for a 2.5" SSD or HDD) and a RED CF module, which obviously accepts the CF cards that are so frequently used now by professional DSLRs and camcorders.
Each module can be stacked, giving you the ability to take 'em from floor to ceiling if you wish. On the rear, each has two FireWire 800 ports, one eSATA port and a mini-USB port if you find yourself in a real pinch. Each device is expected to sell for around $250, which isn't bad considering the premium that's placed on all RED equipment.
