We are thrilled to announce a partnership with RED Digital Cinema to help KitSplit RED camera owners upgrade and earn more.
KitSplit filmmakers are visionaries. Visionaries need the best tools. The best creators in Hollywood and Indie Film like Steven Soderbergh, Nicolas Winding Refn, and David Fincher have used RED cameras on projects like Che, The Informant!, Valhalla Rising, Magic Mike, and The Social Network. You can join their ranks.
Already have a RED camera? Now you can upgrade to the newest model and step up your filmmaking game. A RED upgrade means even better image, processing power, and color science, alongside higher day rates when you rent your camera out. It means a return on your investment, through both visuals on your projects, and the dollars you earn on rentals.
Last Chance to Upgrade your Epic/Scarlet Dragon or Red Raven
The RED Epic/Scarlet Dragon and the RED Raven were incredibly popular models. But all good things must come to an end, and RED is now discontinuing these lines.
The good news is that owners of RED Epic/Scarlet Dragons and RED Ravens have the opportunity to upgrade to newer models before it’s too late!
Upgrading Your RED Camera Ups Your Game as a Filmmaker
The most frequently listed RED camera on KitSplit is the Epic Dragon. So let’s use that as a case study: what would it be like for Epic Dragon owners to upgrade to one of the new RED models like the DSMC2 Monstro 8k W?
Upgrading your RED means more than a name change–you’ll see noticeable benefits in resolution and data management.
With features like REDCODE, a wavelet based compression developed by RED, you’ll save time and money on every project with the Monstro 8k W. REDCODE’s small data footprint means less money spent on storage, and less time spent on processing–keeping track of your 4K and 8K footage has never been easier.
RED’s NVIDIA CUDA-accelerated R3D SDK and accompanying REDCINE-X PRO software is available now, with support from major NLEs and other SDK integrators expected soon.
Make More Money on KitSplit
Upgrading your RED won’t just upgrade your filmmaking–you’ll have the opportunity to make more money on KitSplit as well! Gear owners on KitSplit that take advantage of this exclusive upgrade deal, can also raise the day rate of their RED rentals!
