THEORY OF OPERATION
The RED ONE™ Digital Cinema camera provides high performance digital imaging over a wide range of
frame rates and optical formats including Super 35mm, 35mm and Super16mm. The camera is supplied
as standard with a PL mount, and may be configured with 19 mm rods to accommodate most cinematography lenses, matte boxes and follow focus systems. Adaptors for 15mm offset studio and 15mm
lightweight rods are also available.
In addition to compatibility with existing PL mount cinematography lenses; a select range of S35/35mm
format PL mount prime and zoom lenses are available from RED DIGITAL CINEMA™.
Other lens mounts, including Canon FD, and Nikon F are available from RED™ and 3rd parties, permitting
the use of Nikkor and Canon photographic lenses. To use these mounts the PL mount must be removed.
It is recommended that this should be done only in a dust-free environment, as the sensor and optical
path will be exposed to the elements during this process.
A B4 mount to PL mount adaptor is also available to permit use of 2/3” HD lenses on the RED ONE™
camera. The optical coverage it provides is equivalent to S16 mm. Hence, the maximum recording resolution with these lenses will be 2K RAW. (2048 x 1152 pixel progressive scan)
MYSTERIUM® SENSOR
The MYSTERIUM® sensor has been specifically designed for use with the RED ONE™ camera, and provides variable frame rate imaging over 1- 30fps in 4K, 1-60fps in 3K resolution, and 1-120fps in 2K resolution record modes.
Native color balance for the MYSTERIUM® sensor is 5,000 degrees Kelvin, but may be electronically
compensated for any color temperature in the range 1,700 to 10,000 Kelvin. White Balance presets are
available for Tungsten (3200K) and Daylight (5600K) lighting; the camera may also calculate a color neutralizing White Balance value using a standard white card technique.
MYSTERIUM® includes integrated 12-bit resolution analog to digital conversion, capable of delivering up
to 11 stops of dynamic range when operating in daylight at a sensitivity of 320 ISO.
IMAGE PROCESSING
Images received from the MYSTERIUM® sensor are formatted as pixel defect corrected (but not color
processed) 12-bit RAW data - similar in image quality to a high end digital stills camera.
The sequence of 12-bit RAW images received from the sensor is compressed using proprietary wavelet
based REDCODE™ RAW compression. The RAW data recorded is independent of the RGB signal monitored from the monitoring path. ISO, white balance or other RGB color space adjustments made to the
monitoring path are not burned into the recorded 12-bit RAW data.
Images can be stored on a high-speed Compact Flash, RED-DRIVE® or RED-RAM® media.
The camera’s monitoring path converts 12-bit RAW sensor data white balanced 10-bit 1280 x 720 pixel
RGB 4:4:4 video. This signal may be modified using ISO, white balance or other RGB color space adjustments and provides monitor feeds for the RED™ EVF, RED™ LCD, Preview HD-SDI and HDMI outputs.

AUDIO RECORDING
The RED ONE™ includes four channels of analog audio input processing, Peak Level meter, headphone
monitor and 2-channel balanced analog audio output. Audio is digitized at 24-bit depth and 48KHz and
recorded in synchronization with video and timecode to the attached media. Digital audio is also embedded in the HDMI, Preview and Program HD-SDI outputs.
Line Level and Microphone Level analog audio input signals are routed via a high quality A/D and preamplifier, whose gain stage may be controlled using the Input Level control to achieve the desired audio
reference / recording level.
To assist with audio operating reference level setup, the camera provides a color-coded 3dB per division
Peak Level meter with 0dBu (-2odBFS) Witness Mark in the Graphical User Interface.
Peak Level meter range is –34dBu to +20dBu (-54dBFS to 0dBFS) and provides clip indication.
LINE LEVEL INPUTS
Line level audio inputs are designed to operate at unity gain (0dB Input Level); therefore an appropriate
line output level should be established by your field production mixer or other external signal source.
Reference signal level for Line inputs is 0dBu / 0.775 volts RMS / -20dBFS when operating at 0dB Input
Level. The maximum input signal that can be applied before the onset of input signal clipping is +18dBu /
6.5 volts RMS / - 2dBFS. I.e. this setting supports a guaranteed minimum of 18dB of input signal headroom above reference, plus the maximum available Signal to Noise Ratio for the resulting 24-bit digital
recording.
MICROPHONE LEVEL INPUTS
The recorded signal levels of Microphone inputs are affected by the sensitivity of the microphone and the
Input Level setting. Range is +26dB to +54dB, with a default value of +26dB. The camera operator
should choose an Input Level that aligns the input signal to the reference line drawn vertically through the
camera’s PPM, indicating 0dBu.
This setting supports a guaranteed minimum of 18dB of input signal headroom above reference, plus the
maximum available Signal to Noise Ratio for the resulting 24-bit digital recording.
VIDEO MONITORING OUTPUTS
In its default configuration, the RED ONE™ camera can simultaneously support a RED™ EVF, RED™
LCD, 3 HD-SDI outputs and one HDMI output, with two of these outputs supporting full GUI overlay
graphics.
Default setting for GUI support is RED™ EVF and RED™ LCD. However, if either one of these is not
present, full GUI overlay support is automatically enabled on HD-SDI and HDMI outputs.
RED™ EVF: 1280 x 848 resolution RGB 4:4:4 progressive video display with Surround View, frame guides
and safe action / title overlays, zebra and false color exposure overlays, waveforms, camera status and
operation menus.
RED™ LCD: 1024 x 600 resolution RGB 4:4:4 progressive video display with Surround View, frame
guides and safe action / title overlays, zebra and false color exposure overlays, waveforms, camera status
and operation menus.

DIGITAL MAGAZINES
REDCODE™ RAW compressed video, time code, audio and metadata may be recorded to on-board or
attached digital media devices including:
REDFLASH ™: RED™ speed verified Compact Flash cards of 8 or 16GB capacity.
RED-DRIVE®: A hard disk media based Digital Magazine of 320 or 640GB capacity.
RED-RAM®: A solid-state flash media based Digital Magazine of 64 or 128GB capacity.
Each clip is recorded with a unique clip name and with all the appropriate elements of the clip – REDCODE™ RAW files and QuickTime Reference files placed in a clip folder (.RDC)
All clips are in turn placed in a root directory (.RDM) The root directory (folder) contains all the clips recorded on that specific piece of digital media, so copying of clips from the digital magazine to backup media may be performed by a single drag and drop operation.
For additional information, refer to APPENDIX B: MANAGING DIGITAL MEDIA.
METADATA
RED ONE™ cameras record Metadata, which is data that describes the precise characteristics of the picture and sound data, in each frame of footage. This may include camera specific setup information,
project and clip management information, Edge code, Time code, date and GMT, lens parameters, audio
settings and any video image processing information.
CLIP NAMING CONVENTIONS
When you push record, the camera names the clip being recorded on the digital media. The format of the
clip name is Camera Letter + Reel Number + Month + Day + ** where ** is a two digit alphanumeric random number generated by the camera for each file
E.g. A001_C002_0502A6.RDC
Where: A = camera A, 001 = reel 001, C002 = clip 002, and 0502 = May 02
And A6 is a two digit alphanumeric random number generated by the camera. This number helps avoid
duplicate file names if two cameras are inadvertently named A on the same set.
Three cameras identified as A, B and C can therefore have individually recognizable clips:
A001_C001_0502**.RDC
B001_C001_0502**.RDC
Build 20 v20.1.6
NOVEMBER 20, 2009
©2009 RED.COM INC.
C001_C001_0502**.RDC
21
A single camera identified as A can have individually recognizable reel numbers, such as:
A001_C001_0502**.RDC
A002_C001_0502**.RDC
A003_C001_0502**.RDC
A single camera identified as A can have individually recognizable clip numbers, such as:
A001_C001_0502**.RDC
A002_C002_0502**.RDC
A003_C003_0502**.RDC
Note: Even if the same Reel number and / or camera name are reused, the use of the two random
characters generates non-duplicate file names, such as:
A001_C001_050267.RDC
A001_C001_0502F8.RDC
A001_C001_0502A6.RDC
Under normal operation, the reel number increments each time the camera formats a new piece of digital
media, up to a maximum value of 999. However the reel number may be manually reset at any time to
001or other desired value.
SMPTE TIMECODE
As each recording is made, the RED ONE™ camera records two independent timecode tracks.
Edge Code is a SMPTE timecode track that always starts at 1.00.00.00 on the first frame of each piece of
digital media. It is a sequential code that is continuous from frame to frame and also between clips. Edge
Code is equivalent to RUN RECORD as used on broadcast cameras.
Time Code is a SMPTE timecode track that syncs to the camera’s clock, or if operated in Jam Sync
mode, syncs to an externally supplied SMPTE master timecode signal. It is therefore a sequential code
that is continuous from frame to frame, but discontinuous between clips.
NOTE: Time Code and Edge Code are only output from the 5-pin timecode connector if OUTPUT is
enabled in the TIMECODE setup menu, but are always embedded in HD-SDI.
When in Varispeed or Time-lapse recording modes, the timecode counters are updated at the same frame
rate as the recording. This means valid SMPTE timecode is created without count jumps that would affect
clip playback or editing. If using an external timecode source with Jam Sync enabled, the clip’s master
time reference point is the first frame of the recorded clip.
When in Loop Record mode, the Edge Code will become discontinuous between clips, because frames
copied into the cache memory are discarded. This may lead to problems with applications that assume a
continuous timecode sequence. It is therefore recommended that Time Code be selected when operating
in this recording mode.
POWER CONSUMPTION
The camera draws approximately 75 watts in a typical configuration. A RED-BRICK® 140Wh battery will
run the camera and typical accessories for about 90 minutes. The camera is normally cooled by passive
convection from the camera body, assisted as required by a fan.

Ensure a RED-DRIVE® is connected or a REDFLASH™ Compact Flash card is inserted in the camera. To
record, use either of the RECORD buttons located on the rear and left side of the camera. Push once to
begin recording, push again to stop recording. The camera will automatically create a file name for every
clip recorded on the digital magazine or media.
REDCODE™ RAW data recordings store the Color Temperature and Exposure (ISO) and any RGB color
processing values you use in the monitor path as metadata. This metadata is used in RED Alert! ® or other post production software as initial white balance, exposure and color correction points i.e. you can
change these if you wish when you process the RAW footage.
Time Code and Edge Code values used by the camera are Non Drop Frame (NDF); Drop Frame (DF) is not
supported. Audio is captured at 48KHz 24-bit resolution per channel, uncompressed.
Digital media should be treated with equal care as exposed film or a videotape master. We recommend
storing digital media that contains your footage in a secure location and backing up the data on another
digital media, such as data tape or a hard disk drive.
Each clip is recorded to the digital media in a separate folder and with a unique clip name. To copy the
clip from the digital media to a Macintosh or Windows computer, just drag and drop its folder to the computer’s storage device. If you open the Clip folder, it will look like this:
The Clip folders (.RDC) are held in a root directory (.RDM) on the digital magazine. In each folder there will

SENSOR MENU CONTROLS
This section describes how to set sensor specific menu parameters including Sensitivity, Shutter Speed,
Color Temperature, Varispeed and Time-lapse.
To access the Sensor main menu push the SENSOR menu button on the rear of the camera. To enter the
available sub-menus, use the joystick to highlight the desired selection and push joystick in or down.
NOTE: Sensitivity and Color Temperature metadata values are stored as metadata and are also
used to modify the RED™ LCD, RED™ EVF, Preview HD-SDI and HDMI monitor outputs. They do
not affect 12-bit REDCODE™ RAW data recording; the stored metadata values may be used by
REDCODE™ RAW compatible NLE and image processing applications if desired.
SENSITIVITY
The sensitivity sub-menu allows you to adjust the camera’s operating sensitivity. The default sensitivity
value is ISO 320; adjustable in 1/3rd stop increments from ISO 100 to ISO 2000. When sensitivity is adjusted, the camera metadata logs the change and the monitor path reacts accordingly.
1. To adjust, twist joystick to change the highlighted SENSITIVITY box to the desired setting (default is
ISO 320).
2. Push up on the joystick to set and return to the previous menu (SENSOR main menu) or push the EXIT
button to exit the menu completely.
COLOR TEMP
The Color Temperature sub-menu adjusts the purity of white reproduction of the RGB monitoring paths at
different Color Temperatures of ambient light. Factory default is 5,600 degrees Kelvin.
AUTO WB: The Automatic White Balance (AUTO WB) function allows the camera to calculate a Color
Temperature that will render a white object as white. AWB mode analyzes the central 25% of the image
visible in the monitor.
To use AUTO WB, place a white or gray object under the ambient light, select the AUTO WB parameter
and then push in on the joystick once. AUTO WB may also be assigned to a User Key.

Kelvin. To adjust: Select MANUAL WB and twist joystick to change the highlighted COLOR TEMP box to
the desired setting (default is 5,600K).
TINT: Color Temperature calculations assume a pure light source that may not be true in the specific
scene the camera is imaging. To compensate for any residual colorcast, the TINT parameter can adjust
the RGB color balance with a compensating Magenta - Green color component. To adjust: Select TINT
and twist joystick to change the highlighted TINT box to the desired setting.
NOTE: Pushing AUTO WB calculates a new Tint value. This is maintained if the Color Temp is adjusted via the Manual WB parameter. If you select the Tungsten or Daylight presets, Tint will be reset to zero, which is the default value.
SHUTTER MENU
Adjusts exposure time of each frame captured by the MYSTERIUM® sensor. Shutter speed presets are
available for all common speeds (and corresponding angles) at 24 / 25 fps and 50 / 60 fps.
Preset shutter speeds may be adjusted using the RELATIVE and SYNCRO shutter parameters.
GENLOCK
References Shutter scan start time (phase) to an external Tri-Level Sync genlock signal. For 3D and multicamera, permits scan time and scan phase of all cameras to be matched. To select: Use joystick to highlight GENLOCK checkbox. Push in or down on joystick to place checkmark in GENLOCK checkbox.
GENLOCK ICON
When GENLOCK is checked, a PADLOCK icon will be displayed at the top of the EVF, LCD and all external monitors. An external GENLOCK signal generator will need to be connected to the GENLOCK connector to allow full use of this feature (refer to GENLOCK INPUT under APPENDIX D: INPUT/OUTPUT CONNECTORS).

-
If the PADLOCK appears on its own as shown above, the camera is Genlocked. This means the shutter start time is referenced to the external Genlock signal, so multiple cameras recording the same
scene will be capturing their individual images at the same moment in time if they are all Genlocked to
a common reference signal.

If the PADLOCK has a red circle and diagonal bar through it as shown below, this indicates the sensor
is not Genlocked. Check that the Genlock signal generator frame rate is equal to the project TIME
BASE and / or the cabling and connections are correct.
MODE
Enables one of three following shutter modes: (Default selection is Normal) For additional information, see
SPEED section.
-
Normal: Shutter Speed is defined exclusively by the Shutter Speed setting.
-
Syncro: Shutter Speed is defined by Shutter Speed, but modified by Syncro setting.
-
Relative: Shutter Speed is defined by Shutter Speed, but modified by the capture fps.
To adjust: Select MODE and twist joystick to change the highlighted SHUTTER MODE box to the desired
setting.
NOTE: If operating in Relative or Syncro modes, the shutter speed is reported in yellow text.
NOTE: If the operator requests a shutter speed (angle) that is outside the capability of the camera
in that mode, the actual shutter speed (angle) used will be reported in red text.
SPEED
When operating in Normal mode, the Shutter Speed value used by the camera is fixed, i.e. it is independent of the image capture rate. This is opposite from a mechanically shutter camera.
Decreasing Shutter Speed will allow more light to fall on the sensor, increasing exposure and motion blur
on any objects moving within the frame. As Shutter Speed increases less light falls on the sensor, decreasing exposure and motion blur on objects moving within the frame.
Exposure times presets include: 1/24, 1/25, 1/30, 1/32, 1/33, 1/40, 1/48, 1/50, 1/60, 1/96, 1/100, 1/120,

When operating in Relative mode, the Shutter Speed values are proportionately reduced or extended to
correspond to changes in the instantaneous capture frame rate.
This mode is analogous to use of a fixed shutter angle on a mechanically shuttered camera.
E.g. Enabling Relative mode with 1/48th sec shutter at 24fps will mean 1/96th sec for 48fps, and 1/16th sec
for 8fps. This achieves the same visual result as setting a180 degree shutter.
SYNCRO
When operating in this mode, the Shutter Speed values may be proportionately reduced or extended to
tune exposure time to a precise value. Range 10–90. Default is 50.
To adjust: Select SYNCRO and twist joystick to change the highlighted SPEED ADJUST box to the desired setting.
E.g. Setting Syncro to 53 with a 1/60th sec shutter is equal to 1/56.6 sec exposure time.
PHASE
Provides a delay relative to the start of the frame for the exposure time. Phase may be adjusted over the
range - 45 to + 45 degrees. Default value is 0.
To adjust: Select PHASE and twist joystick to change the highlighted PHASE ADJUST box to the desired
setting.

overlaid by true sensor exposure)

To adjust: Select METER and twist joystick to change the ANALYSIS METER to the desired setting.
LUMA HIST/RGB HIST/MONO HIST/RAW HIST: Select a histogram that best illustrates the exposure
distribution of your scene.
NOTE: Histograms are affected by White Balance, ISO, VIEW and LOOK settings, however if VIEW
is set to RAW, histograms will represent the exposure levels at the sensor i.e. prior to White Balance, ISO and LOOK settings. The RAW histogram is the exception to this rule, in this case the
sensor exposure graph always represents true sensor exposure even though the underlying colorless RGB graph will still be affected by White Balance, ISO, VIEW and LOOK settings.
LUMA HISTOGRAM: Displays the luminance values of the RGB monitor path (or sensor exposure when
VIEW is set to RAW).
RGB HISTOGRAM: Displays the RGB values of the RGB monitor path (or sensor exposure when VIEW is
set to RAW).
MONO HISTOGRAM: Displays the area of the RGB values of the RGB monitor path (or sensor exposure
when VIEW is set to RAW).
RAW HISTOGRAM: Displays the sensor exposure values (blue) over a colorless histogram of the RGB
monitor path (White).
NOTE: Histogram information is complemented by two additional meters, the Sensor Raw meter
and RGB Clip Meter.
SENSOR RAW METER
The Sensor Raw meter is a vertical color bar graph that indicates the true exposure at the sensor. This meter is unaffected by White Balance, ISO or LOOK settings, and therefore represents a true exposure of the sensor at all times. The meter is color coded identically to the False Color overlay, so if False Color is
enabled and VIEW is set to RAW, False Color and Sensor RAW exposure indications will be identical.

RGB CLIP METER
The RGB Clip meter looks like a traffic light and indicates if Red, Blue or Green
channels of the RGB monitor path are clipping. The RGB Clip meter is affected by
White Balance, ISO, VIEW and LOOK settings, and normally monitors RGB monitor path levels. Therefore it can also be used to check the HD-SDI outputs are not
clipping. However if VIEW is set to RAW, the RGB Clip meter monitors sensor
exposure and may be used to verify the sensor is not clipping in Red, Blue or
Green channels.
UNDER AND OVER EXPOSURE EXAMPLE
Any desired combination of False Color, Zebras, Histogram, Sensor RAW and RGB Clip information may
be used to judge ideal exposure. As a general rule the ideal histogram to aim for is both "fat" and "right
justified", with the sensor RAW meter indicating Green, Yellow or Orange.
In this example the camera is ideally exposed. The histogram is justified to the right, the Sensor RAW meter indicates the sensor is not clipped, and the RGB Clip meter indicates the RGB monitor path is not
clipped. When the recorded clip is color corrected in post production, sufficient headroom exists such
that any highlight information should be displayable without clipping, and shadow information should be
displayable without significant noise.
In this example the camera is significantly over exposed. The histogram is piled up to the right, the Sensor
RAW meter indicates the sensor is clipped, and the RGB Clip meter indicates the red and green channels
in the RGB monitor path are clipped. When the recorded clip is color corrected in post production, highlight information will probably be clipped, although shadow information will probably be displayed without
any significant noise.
In this example the camera is significantly under exposed. The histogram is piled up to the left, the Sensor
RAW meter indicates the sensor is underexposed, and the RGB Clip meter indicates the RGB monitor
path is not clipped. When the recorded clip is color corrected in post production, the highlight information
will not be clipped, however shadow information will probably be displayed with significant noise.

EVF Refresh: permits the operator to select the display refresh rate used by the RED™ EVF.
FIXED: The default mode is FIXED, which uses 2:3 or other appropriate pull down as required to display
images at a fixed frequency of 59.94 Hz (or 50Hz) at all image capture frame rates. This mode minimizes
display flicker, but will exhibit a 2:3 motion stutter on 24fps images.
SYNCED: The alternative mode is SYNCED. This avoids 2:3 pull down, and instead doubles the capture
frame rate – for example displaying 24fps images at 48Hz (50Hz for 25.00 fps). The display may exhibit
luminance flicker due to the lower frame update rate, but it will not stutter.
NOTE: When in SYNCED mode, EVF display may blank for up to 3 seconds:
-
When existing OPEN GATE mode
-
After exiting MAGNIFY mode when in 4K record resolution
-
After changing between certain Varispeed frame rates

NOVEMBER 20, 2009
AUTO: This setting combines VARIABLE speed fan operation while not recording, with SILENT mode
when in record. This mode is recommended for extended duration dialog recordings.
VARIABLE: This setting is most useful when the ambient temperatures are below 50°F/10°C. In variable
mode, the fan runs at a continuously variable speed in both preview and record. At low ambient temperatures the fan will run at minimum speed. At higher ambient temperature, the fan will run faster to maintain
the camera body within its operating temperature limits.
HOT: This setting is most useful when the ambient temperature is between 86°F/32°C and 104°F/40C. In
hot mode, the fan runs at its maximum speed. Other camera cooling precautions may be necessary, such
as shading the camera from sunlight and use of a cold gel pack.
STANDARD: This setting is most useful when the ambient temperature is below 86F/ 32C. In standard
mode, the fan will run at half its maximum speed when in record.
QUIET: This setting is most useful when the ambient temperature is below 72°F/25°C. In quiet mode the
fan runs at one quarter its maximum speed when in record.
SILENT: This setting is most useful when the ambient temperature is below 60°F/15°C. In silent mode the
fan runs at its minimum speed when in record.
BLACK SHADING
Black Shading allows the camera to self-calibrate sensor output for optimum black levels.
NOTE: before starting a Black shading calibration, ensure that you place a lens cap that blocks all
light on your lens. Insert a formatted CF card into the camera (or attached a formatted REDDRIVE). Ideally re-format the media before proceeding to ensure sufficient space is available to
perform the record task.
NOTE: It is very important that no light reaches the sensor. If Black Shading is performed without
capping the lens, the black level calculation will be incorrect. To rectify, repeat the Black shading
procedure with a lens cap installed.

APPENDIX B: MANAGING DIGITAL MEDIA
The RED ONE™ camera supports two types of media for recording - compact flash and external hard
disk.
Compact Flash (CF) media requires a REDFLASH™ (CF) module mounted to the left side of the camera
body. Hard disk media is housed in a RED-DRIVE® magazine connected via a custom16-pin SATA interface cable (POWER connector) located at the rear of the camera body.
REDFLASH ™ (CF) compact flash media is available with capacities of 8GB and 16GB. Record duration
is dependent on resolution, quality and frame rate, but a 8GB CF card will typically provide 4 minutes of
24fps 4K RAW, 7 minutes of 24fps 3K RAW, or 16 minutes of 24fps 2K RAW recording.
RED-DRIVE® media is available with capacities of 320GB or 640GB. Record duration is dependent on
resolution, quality and frame rate, but a RED-DRIVE 320GB will typically provide 160 minutes of 24fps 4K
RAW, 280 minutes of 24fps 3K RAW, or 640 minutes of 24fps 2K RAW recording.
RED-RAM® media is available with capacities of 64GB or 128GB. Record duration is dependent on resolution, quality and frame rate, but a RED-RAM™ 64GB will typically provide 32 minutes of 24fps 4K RAW,
56 minutes of 24fps 3K RAW, or 128 minutes of 24fps 2K RAW recording.
FORMATTING MEDIA
Media must be formatted prior to using it for recording. Formatting is performed on camera, although media may be erased on a Macintosh OS X personal computer, allowing the camera to just add the necessary project profile and clip log data.
NOTE: Media formatted on-camera will use a name and root volume in the format:
Camera Letter + Reel Number + Month + Day + ** where ** is a two digit alphanumeric random number
generated by the camera for each file e.g. A001_0512A6.RDM
Clips recorded to the media follow similar naming conventions
A001_C001_0512A6_001.RDC and A001_C001_0512A6_H.mov etc…
IMPORTANT: Media must always be un-mounted prior to removal or disconnection from the camera. This ensures power is removed from the digital media and any open data files are closed. Failure to do so may result in lost data or corrupted files. Refer to REMOVE MEDIA FROM CAMERA
(UNMOUNT).
This procedure outlines the formatting of Compact Flash cards or RED-DRIVE®/RED-RAM® magazine
using the RED ONE™ camera. Formatting a CF card or RED-RAM® will take about 10 -15 seconds; a
RED-DRIVE® formats in less than a minute.

MEDIA CAPACITY REMAINING STATUS
During a recording, the rear status screen, and monitor outputs will display the % of remaining media capacity in the MEDIA box (100% is shown).
At 10% remaining capacity the media status box will turn yellow, at 5% it will turn red. At 2% remaining
the camera will cease recording. This reserves a small amount of capacity for ancillary data to be written
to the media.
REMOVE MEDIA FROM CAMERA (UNMOUNT)
IMPORTANT: Media must always be un-mounted prior to removal or disconnection from the camera. This ensures power is removed from the digital media and any open data files are closed. Failure to do so may result in lost data or corrupted files.
Removing a CF card or disconnecting a RED-DRIVE® or RED-RAM® without first un-mounting it will not
physically damage the media, however it does increase the risk of file corruption, so it’s good operational
practice to un-mount the media if possible before removing or disconnecting.
IMPORTANT: Un-mounting the digital media takes a few seconds, protects the integrity of your
recorded data and helps clips mount instantly to your workstation once in postproduction, so it’s a

LINE LEVEL / MICROPHONE LEVEL AUDIO INPUTS
A three-pin mini-XLR connector is provided for each of the camera’s Line / Microphone inputs. Audio is
recorded at 24-bit 48KHz, which provides high audio fidelity and wide dynamic range. The Line Level and
Microphone Level analog audio input signals are routed via a high quality A/D and pre-amplifier, whose
gain stage may be controlled using the Input Level control to achieve the desired audio reference / recording level.
To assist with audio operating reference level setup, the camera provides a color-coded Peak Level meter
with 0dBu (-20dbFS) Witness Mark in the Graphical User Interface.
Peak Level meter range is –34dBu to +20dBu (-54dBFS to 0dBFS) and provides clip indication.

Line Level Audio Inputs
Line Level audio inputs are designed to operate at unity gain (0dB Input Level); therefore an appropriate
line output level should be established by your production mixer or other signal source.
Reference signal level for Line inputs is 0dBu / 0.775 volts RMS / -20dBFS when operating at 0dB Input
Level. The maximum input signal that can be applied before the onset of input signal clipping is +18dBu /
6.5 volts RMS / - 2dBFS. This provides a guaranteed minimum of 18dB of input signal headroom above
reference, in combination with maximum Signal to Noise Ratio for the resulting 24-bit digital recording.
Peak Level Meter response to 0dBu (-20dBFS) Reference Level
NOTE: If sending the camera a TAPE level line output (-10dBu), adjust the Input Level to +10dB.
MICROPHONE LEVEL AUDIO INPUTS
The 24-bit digital recording level of each Microphone Level input is affected by the sensitivity of the attached microphone and the Input Level setting applied to each of the audio pre-amplifiers.
Pre-amplifier Input Level range is +26dB to +54dB, with a default value of +26dB.
Choose an Input Level that aligns the input signal to the reference line drawn vertically through the camera’s PPM, which indicates 0dBu. This setting provides a guaranteed minimum of 18dB of input signal
headroom above reference, in combination with maximum Signal to Noise Ratio for the resulting 24-bit
digital recording.

-
You should always use a RED DIGITAL CINEMA™ XLR to mini-XLR adaptor cable, which provides a -4dB pad, to achieve an appropriate input signal level.
-
The 48 V Phantom Power source is automatically disabled on each power cycle.
-
Low sensitivity phantom powered microphones may exhibit excessive noise, so consider an external +48V phantom power source, or use a dynamic microphone.
-
Input Level range for Microphone Inputs is +26dB to +54dB.

WARNING: It is very important that both pairs of +VBATT and GROUND pins are wired up. DO NOT
fabricate power cables with just one each of +VBATT and GROUND pins wired, as this will cause
damage to the camera’s power supply; this is not covered by Warranty.
DRIVE INTERFACE
The Drive Interface (B) is a custom e-SATA and power connection for RED-DRIVE® and RED-RAM® media. Due to the requirement for absolute data integrity that requires custom cable construction, the pin-out
of this interface is not published.
Contact RED™ technical support for details of available Drive Interface cable lengths.
NOTE: The Drive Interface and D.C Power Input connectors use the same connector shell size. It is
very important you do not try to force a 16-pin Drive Interface cable into the 6-pin D.C Power connector, or 6-pin D.C Power cable into the 16-pin Drive Interface connector.

Each connector also provides a low voltage trigger input (GPI) and tally output (GPO) on pins 2 and 3,
whose functions can be configured in the GPIO preferences menu. The upper connector contains GPI A
and GPO A, the lower connector contains GPO A and GPO B. The default setting for both GPI A and B is
Record Start/Stop and for GPO A and B is Record Tally.
1. To activate a GPI trigger, momentarily short pin 2 to 1.
2. When active, the GPO tallies present 3.3 V @ 0.04 amps maximum between pins 1 and 3.
WARNING: If creating a GPI trigger cable it is very important not to short pin 4 to pin 3, as this
could cause damage to the camera’s power supply; this is not covered by Warranty.

APPENDIX E: POST PRODUCTION
RED™ workflow is quite easy to understand, especially if you have experience with photographic RAW
image processing, or shoot 16mm or 35mm film followed by a telecine transfer to a non-linear video editor
and on-line conform.
RAW data has a wide dynamic range and color space, so you can freely change the white balance of the
footage, adjust exposure and alter highlight and shadow tonality in post-production.
The RED ONE™ camera records RAW sensor data using wavelet based REDCODE™ RAW compression
to a CF card, or RED-DRIVE® digital magazine. The compressed RAW data is then transferred from the
digital media via FireWire or USB-2 to a Macintosh OSX workstation running RED Alert! ® or REDCINE®,
or to a Windows XP workstation running REDCIINE® post production software. These applications do not
directly edit or conform the RAW data themselves, but prepare the RAW data for editing and conforming
by RGB domain post-production software applications.
If you are using CF media, copy the clips onto the workstation’s hard drive. If you are recording to a REDDRIVE, it can be directly mounted as an external drive using FireWire if desired which eliminates the media copy step.
In film processing terms, RED Alert! ® and REDCINE® act as an integrated film laboratory, telecine, and
one light color corrector. They convert recorded REDCODE™ RAW data to RGB video, and provide basic
one light image processing and color correction. Using REDCINE® footage can also be cropped, resized,
or repositioned. These functions lessen the amount of time required for color correction or re-framing of
shots after the final cut has been completed.
RED Alert! ® can generate QuickTime reference movies suitable for use in dailies applications, and export
a sequence of 2K or 4K resolution RGB image files as TIFF or DPX files for DI use.
REDCINE® can also encode 4K or 2K RAW footage into a variety of uncompressed RGB and compressed 4:2:2 video formats. Provided the appropriate QuickTime codec’s are available on the host computer workstation, compressed video choices include ProRes, DNxHD, DV100 and M-JPEG QuickTime
movies at 1080p or 720p resolution. For film out, multi-media or special effects applications, REDCINE®
may export a sequence of 2K or 4K image files in TIFF, Open EXR, DPX, JPEG, or Photoshop PSD file
formats.
Creating 4:2:2 at 1080p or 720p resolution QuickTime movies provides compatibility with the majority of
non-linear editing systems.
Depending on the QuickTime movie resolution, material may be taken directly to a broadcast delivery videotape format, or after the editorial decisions have been made, video can be conformed at full image
resolution by replacing the lower resolution edit proxy (e.g. 720p at 8 bit quality) with a high resolution 4K,
2K or 1080p image file.
SOFTWARE TOOLS
RED DIGITAL CINEMA™ provides a variety of software tools to aid postproduction. For proper color rendition using a Macintosh OSX computer, your monitor should be set to Adobe 1998, or to SMPTE-C display profile. If you use the HD Cinema display profile, adjust the gamma to 2.2.

RED™ QUICKTIME CODEC
(Use V3.9.0 or higher for Build 20 footage)
NOTE: V3.9.0 is currently not compatible with Build 20 camera color matrix – therefore camera footage should be white balanced before editing or other image processing)
The RED™ QuickTime codec permits REDCODE™ RAW footage to be displayed on Macintosh OSX personal computers running QuickTime Player V7.4.5 or higher.
Render performance of computers will vary based on CPU speed, number of cores and disk speed. The
RED ONE™ camera, RED Alert! ® and REDCINE® offer QuickTime reference movies at _F full, _H half,
_M medium and _P proxy resolution. Choose the resolution that is most appropriate to your requirement
for playback frame rate on your specific computer. If the footage is to be viewed at distant location – e.g.
dailies - export the footage as a standalone movie using MPEG-4 or other low bit rate codec.
NOTE: The QuickTime reference movies work by partially decoding the wavelet data, which means
that the original RAW recording must be available on a drive accessible to your computer. For remote use, conversion to a standalone movie avoids this issue.
NOTE: If an ANAMORPHIC record mode has been selected (2K ANA, 3K ANA, 4K ANA) any video
captured from the camera HD-SDI outputs has been stretched 2:1 to illustrate the final 2.40:1 aspect ratio of the final image projection. The actual recorded image is 1.2:1 aspect, and the QuickTime reference movies will reflect that aspect ratio.
RED ALERT! ®
(Use Build 20 / Version 20.1.6 or higher for Build 20 footage)
RED Alert! ® is available for Intel based Mac OSX computers only.
In addition to performing white balance and one light color correction, RED Alert! ® can export a clip at 4K
and 2K resolution via 10-bit DPX or 16-bit TIFF files, or create color corrected QuickTime reference movies for editing or other uses by applications that use the RED™ QuickTime Codec. As RED ONE™ shoots
progressive scan images, all QuickTime movies created by RED Alert! ® will also be progressive scan.

The upper panel in the display provides information about the levels in the selected clip. Exposure and
White Balance may be altered, R G and B digital values may be sampled from the image, and a Zebra exposure indicator can be selected.
NOTE: If an ANAMORPHIC record mode has been selected (2K ANA, 3K ANA, 4K ANA) any video
captured from the camera HD-SDI outputs has been stretched 2:1 to illustrate the final 2.40:1 aspect ratio of the final image projection. The actual recorded image is 1.2:1 aspect, and the .R3D
files decoded by RED Alert! will reflect that aspect ratio.
A composite RGB histogram is available, which appears below the main display area. This provides a
view of the exposure distribution for the Red, Green and Blue channels.
A one light color correction panel permits adjustment of Color Temperature, Saturation, Contrast, Brightness, Red Gain, Green Gain and Blue Gain. These parameters match those available in the RED ONE™
camera.
NOTE: The range and resolution of these color correction parameters is greater than those available in the camera UI. This reflects the need for greater range and precision for the controls in postproduction than for monitoring images during image capture.

NOVEMBER 20, 2009
RED Alert! ® reads the metadata recorded for each color correction parameter by the RED ONE™ camera. Values can be adjusted by dragging the appropriate slider, or by entering a new numeric value in its
box. Clicking R will reset the value back to its default setting. Clicking M will restore the recorded metadata value. R ALL or M ALL will affect all parameters, GRADE will revert all values back to those last used in
your color grade.
Presets may be saved in RED Alert! ® to allow a consistent “look” to be established across multiple clips,
or alternative color treatments may be made for the same clip.
NOTE: Looks may be transferred to the camera by entering RED Alert! ® values into the UI.
The image may be displayed in a variety of color spaces. For most applications, select REDspace. For
special effects select Linear, and for Digital Intermediates select a Log.
The timeline control plays the selected clip and marks IN and an OUT point, between which the TIFF or
DPX file sequence will be extracted. For QuickTime reference movies the entire clip will be referenced, as
trimming will be performed downstream. If a single frame is to be exported, push Save 4K or 2K DPX, or
4K or 2K TIFF. If a sequence of frames is desired, push Save Sequence 4K or 2K DPX, or 4K or 2K TIFFS.

REDCINE®
(Use V20.0.0 or higher for Build 20 footage)
REDCINE® is available on Intel based Mac OSX and Windows XP platforms. In addition to performing
white balance and one light color correction, REDCINE® provides image pan/scan, crop and scaling operations. The application can export either a single clip, or a sequence of clips, as 4K or 2K resolution 10bit DPX or 16-bit TIFF files. REDCINE® can also render clips as standalone QuickTime movies using specific HD video codecs. As RED ONE™ shoots progressive scan images, all QuickTime movies created by
REDCINE® are also progressive scan.
