RED Modules

The RED DSMC2 Brain requires some sort of module to make it functional - to get power in, and get video signals out. RED offers you many choices!

The DSMC2® V-Lock I/O Expander offers a variety of Input/Output connections, as well as an industry standard V-Lock mount to power your DSMC2 camera using RED BRICK® batteries. Constructed from lightweight and durable magnesium, this expander module mounts directly to the rear of the camera BRAIN® and offers connections for the following:

• DC Power input (DC IN)

The DSMC2 V-Lock I/O Expander also features a selector switch that enables the BRAIN to automatically boot when power is provided via the DC IN connector on the expander. This feature allows you to use a connected DC input supply to turn the BRAIN on and off when the camera is mounted in remote or difficult to maneuver locations. This expander is an ideal solution for a wide variety of production environments—from low-profile run-and-gun situations to studio shoots that require mobility.

NOTE: The DSMC2 Top Handle is NOT fully compatible with the DSMC2 Base I/O V-Lock Expander, as the top handle will interfere with the battery when one is attached to the expander module.

NOTE: Only one (1) expander module can be used at a time.

Wooden Camera Cable-Less V-Mount for RED DSMC2 (220600) - Display Model on Sale $679
Cable-less V-Mount system for RED DSMC2 Brains (Monstro, Helium, Gemini), Weapon, Epic Weapon (Epic-W), Scarlet Weapon (Scarlet-W), Raven, and other DSMC2 cameras which utilizes an IDX brand plate with two D-Taps and the Wooden Camera pogo interface module. The assembly will attach without tools directly to the back of the RED Weapon/Scarlet-W/Epic-W/Raven camera, Base Expander Module, REDVolt Expander Module, and some third party modules like OMODs.

This system can be converted between high and low modes. High mode is where the battery plate sits above the back of the camera. Low mode is where the plate is configured to be flush with the top of the camera body leaving batteries in a very compact configuration. An important note is that the RED DSMC2 top handle will clear RED Brick batteries when our Cable-less V-Mount plate is configured in low mode.

The Cable-less V-Mount will communicate percentage or voltage data to the camera's LCD display. Intelligent batteries like RED Bricks, Blueshape, Switronix, PAG, and other batteries utilizing SMBUS or reversed SMBUS will allow for the module to communicate percentage data and estimated run time. Non-SMBUS batteries like some IDX and other low cost batteries will only provide voltage data to the camera through our module.

2x D-Tap ports for accessory power
