See you all at NAB!
Red has a rather interesting relationship with NAB.
Back in the begininning (ie 2006), the Red One was seen as vapourware. Who could make a camera with those specs at that price point? Well - Red could, and did.
Since then, however, their performance at NAB has been less than steller. There have been some announcements with great follow through - like the Motion Mount, the +1 module, etc. There have also been some broken promises - like Dragon upgrades. There they were doing "upgrades" from the show floor, and now we are coming up on one year since we signed up and haven't heard a peep. Then there is the full on vapourware - like the Meizler module that was announced with such fanfare, and then quietly killed off a few weeks ago. And don't get me started on Odemax and Redray.
1. Be more open with your customers. We all know that you can't broadcast everything to your competition, but why have there been so few updates about just about everything? Why was the Meizler canceled? What will replace it? Why not roll over reservations to the new product? If you can't answer the questions at least tell people when you plan on making announcements.
2. Focus on reality, not hype. Announcing Dragon upgrades at NAB 2013 was great. Having an upgrade facility on site made for expectations that you couldn't meet. A lot of expense for a rather embarassing outcome. Dragon is reality, the upgrades were hype.
But hey, what do I know?
