RED keeps it coming with the RED RAY disk drive

RED's trifecta of hot new gear announcements at NAB wrapped up with the RED RAY optical disk drive, which promises to play back 4K video from the RED ONE, 3K video from the new Scarlet and the usual assortment of HD formats from RED Disc and RED Express media, as well as native R3D RAW files from CompactFlash. 5K video from the new EPIC isn't supported, though. As with all of RED's announcements today, specs are promised to change, but the clever name of the drive has us thinking that it's based on Blu-ray -- we'll keep digging for details.
