Red Storage Requirements
on Mar 11, 2010 at 10:26:50 am

Hi
I am trying to estimate storage space requirements for any future Red jobs that I may be involved with.
After reading the excellent Kadner book I am slightly confused with a couple of things.

If the data rate is fixed at 28MB/sec (or 36MB) doesn't that mean that file sizes are all the same, just that the 4K files have twice the compression of 2K ??
I know this can't be right but if someone can straighten me out I would be grateful.

Also, is there a chart out there that lists all the red formats and the storage space per minute etc.

Any help appreciated
Dan

I believe this is what you're looking for (slightly out of date but gives you the idea):

And thanks for the book plug- please give us a good review over on Amazon.com:

An hour of 4K at 24FPS shot in Redcode 42 should be around 152.2 GB.
