Cooke Optics has announced that its /i Technology will be available on all Red One cameras. Jarred Land fire chief at Red announced on the Red Web site that all new Red One cameras would come with /i pins installed and fully functional beginning that day. Cooke’s /i “Intelligent” Technology enables PL-mounted film and digital cameras to automatically record key lens and camera data for every film frame using /i equipped lenses which can then be provided digitally to post-production teams. Since the Red One camera has built-in /i support via contacts in the Red camera lens mount for direct metadata capture there is no need for an additional equipment interface. The technology streamlines both production and post saving time and costs and eliminating guesswork whilst enabling greater creative freedom. Les Zellan chairman Cooke Optics says “We are delighted that /i Technology is now live on the Red One. With schedules tighter than ever and demands for higher image quality the need for production and post to work closely together has never been more important. The Red One camera is all about using digital technology to streamline processes and create the best possible images and the /i capability amply fulfils that criteria.” Cooke Optics Red One
