The player handles 4K files, upscales the resolution of your other files and is even compatible with the HFR 3D that you'll see in 'The Hobbit.'
UHDTVs are hitting the market and the folks that own them are going to need something to watch. RED is responding to that need by offering up the Redray Cinema Player – a device capable of playing back UHD video files at the same resolution as your TV.
RED isn't stopping there though. They know you're still going to need something to watch on your fancy new set and will be launching the Odemax distribution system to go with it. Odemax will presumably allow you to both rent and buy movies in 4K though the specifics are fairly limited at the moment. We do know it comes out for consumers in March of 2013.
The Redray player is available for preorder now with shipments starting at the end of this month. The price is set at $1,450.
