We are proud to announce a new product that will be ready for prime time very soon... the wireless Origo. The Origo-W will wirelessly start and stop your Epic/Scarlet using the WIFI built into the camera so there are no cables or boxes to mount. The all new Origo-W is only slightly larger than the original Origo yet it has a number of features that will make it an indispensable tool for your kit. Currently we have the protocols designed to work with RED EPIC® and SCARLET® cameras but we will have additional receiver hardware options to work with conventional GPIO and Lanc-based camera control scenarios as well.
--Long battery life with only a CR2032 Battery(More on that soon)
--Compact size: 2.21"x 0.92" x 0.52" (56mm x 23mm x 13mm)
--Wireless: 2.4 GHz direct control of RED EPIC® and SCARLET® cameras.
--OFN finger navigation sensor (12-bit control in X and Y axis, mappable to menu navigation or EF lens control)
--Four user assignable buttons (assign the same way as the buttons on the REDMOTE®)
--LEDs for battery and tally readout. 100% accurate to values on camera display
--Four mounting holes for handle mounting brackets etc.
--Rear battery cover includes a lanyard loop for included neck strap
--Micro USB input for power and firmware updates
--FCC, IC, and ETSI certified.
A great thing about the newer firmware from Red is that they have allowed multiple REDMOTE® controllers to be used at the same time. So you could feasibly have a redmote for a display/control, an Origo-W for menu navigation, and yet another for controlling an EF lens.
Estimated MRSP on the Origo-W will be less $425. A pre-order page will be up on this site within the next few weeks. No orders are billed until units are ready to ship.
One last note: We continue to offer DFF credit towards any products we are shipping... that includes the Origo-W. So if you currently have an Impero/Inclino order on the books you can use that credit towards anything we make. (Read More)
