RED DIGITAL CINEMA DSMC2 V-LOCK I/O Expander

R38,319.00
SKU 720-0045
More than just a way to power your camera, the RED DSMC2 V-LOCK I/O Expander provides a variety of input/output connections in addition to a V-Lock mount for your DSMC2 camera. The Expander is made from magnesium, so it is lightweight yet strong. It enables powering your camera from a V-Mount battery or by an alternate DC source via cable, and you can set it to automatically boot your camera up once power is connected. It provides both 3G-SDI and HDMI outputs, as well as control and sync outputs.
Built-in USB and auxiliary power outputs enable powering accessories and limiting the number of power splitter and converter boxes hanging from your camera. Audio is not forgotten by RED, and the Expander features both an analog stereo input and a stereo headphone jack. It is compatible with the WEAPON 8K S35, WEAPON 6K, as well as the EPIC/SCARLET-W, and the RAVEN.
Auto Boot-Up on Power-On
The Expander features a physical switch that allows you to enable the camera to automatically boot up when power is applied. This is a useful feature for when the camera is in a difficult-to-access position.
Firmware
Since the V-Lock I/O Expander communicates with your camera, and allows electronic signals and video output, it requires that your DSMC2 camera has firmware v6.2.17 or later installed.
The Expander simplifies your power and output situation when shooting, and can be removed if you want your camera to have a smaller profile for stash-cam, gimbal, or drone shooting.
