Founder Jim Jannard has announced that he’s also retiring due to “a few health issues”. That said, Jannard says that the existing Hydrogen One “will continue to be supported in the future”.
Jannard initially posted on the H4V forums that the Hydrogen progam was undergoing a “radical change”. The company even had a teaser up for a short period of time. It depicted what looked like modular cameras for the phone, as well as other attachments that could improve battery life and expandable storage.
It looks like none of that will ever see the light of day. RED Digital Cinema as a company will still be around, led by President Jarred Land, executive vice president Tommy Rios and president of marketing and creative Jamin Jannard.
