RED video off-loader
Imagine has announcedShotPut RED, its media off-loader for high-resolution RED One video cameras. The new software automatically backs up RED video data at full speed (with no Finder overhead) from RED media and Compact Flash cards, to as many as three locations for redundancy's sake. RED One cameras are a beyond high-definition, 4000-pixel resolution video camera system, aimed at video producers and moviemakers. ShotPut RED can offload RED video data automatically upon insertion of the media, from one device or from multiple devices, and offers log files and verification of data transfers. ShotPut Red can also be set to reformat Compact Flash cards to prepare them for their next use.
The software is compatible with Compact Flash, RED RAID volumes and more, copying R3D files in build 15 and 16 formats. The $50 software, available now, works on Mac OS X 10.4 and higher, requiring 512MB RAM and 16GB of hard drive space.
