RED HYDROGEN ONE PRESS RELEASE
WHAT IS THE RED HYDROGEN ONE
The HYDROGEN ONE is a standalone, full-featured, unlocked multi-band smartphone operating on Android OS that just happens to add a few additional features that shatter the mold of conventional thinking.
Wearable displays not spoken here. It is no longer necessary to carry (or charge) another device to enjoy multi-dimensional content. Experience “look around depth” in the palm of your hand, no glasses or headsets in sight.
This incredible retina-riveting display advancement features nanotechnology that seamlessly switches between traditional 2D content, holographic multi-view,1 content, 3D content, and interactive games … both landscape and portrait modes supported.
• View all traditional 2D content normally at full screen resolution
• View holographic RED Hydrogen 4-View content (H4V)
• View stereo 3D content
• View 2D/3D VR, AR and MR
ASSAULT YOUR SENSES
Embedded in the OS is a proprietary H30 algorithm that converts stereo sound into expansive multi-dimensional audio. Think 5.1 on your headphones. The perfect match for holographic H4V or just listening to your favorite tunes. The difference this makes would be enough to justify the entire system.
HYDROGEN ONE is the foundation of a future multi-dimensional media system. The HYDROGEN SYSTEM incorporates a new high-speed data bus to enable a comprehensive and ever-expanding modular component system, which will include future attachments for shooting higher quality motion and still images as well as HYDROGEN format holographic images.
The HYDROGEN ONE will not only be the control center for the HYDROGEN system, it will also integrate into the professional RED camera program, working together with Scarlet, EPIC and Weapon as a user interface and monitor.
One channel to find all 4-View holographic content. Create .h4v (or convert 3D to .h4v) content and upload. Download or stream to view. Movies, documentaries, games, shopping and other apps all found with one click.
