RED DSMC2 Base I/O V-Lock Expander

*** Please note not rentable as a separate item without camera ***


The DSMC2™ Base I/O V-Lock Expander offers a variety of Input/Output connections, as well as an industry standard V-Lock mount to power your WEAPON®, SCARLET-W, or RED RAVEN™ camera using regular V-Lock batteries.


Constructed from lightweight and durable magnesium, this expander module mounts directly to the rear of the camera BRAIN® in place of the OMOD Command RT back option and offers connections for the following:
DC Power input (DC IN)

  • HDMI 1.2 output (Type A socket)
  • 3G-SDI output (HD-SDI, 75 Ω BNC)
  • CTRL & SYNC ports (2x 00B LEMO 4-Pin, Timecode and Genlock support)
  • AUX Power output (P-Tap 2-Pin female)
  • USB Power output (Type A, 5 V at 1.5 A for powering HDMI transmitters or small mobile devices)
  • Stereo Headphone output (3.5 mm jack)
  • Stereo Analog input (3.5 mm jack)

The DSMC2 V-Lock I/O Expander also features a selector switch that enables the BRAIN to automatically boot when power is provided via the DC IN connector on the expander. This feature allows you to use a connected DC input supply to turn the BRAIN on and off when the camera is mounted in remote or tight locations.

Please Note: The DSMC2 Top Handle is NOT fully compatible with the DSMC2 Base I/O V-Lock Expander, as the top handle will interfere with the battery when one is attached to the expander module.

Camera brain not included.
