RED Founder Announces Retirement Citing Health Issues


Jannard has confirmed that he is going to take a break from his 45-year long career due to his medical conditions. Along with his retirement, he has also confirmed that the Hydrogen Project is going to shut down.

Hydrogen Project was RED's attempt of innovating cameras for flagship smartphones. However, the attempt was proven unsuccessful.

"I have spent the past 45 years building "inventions wrapped in art".

Just now turning 70 and having a few health issues, it is now time for me to retire.

I will be shutting down the HYDROGEN project, ending a career that has included Oakley, RED Digital Cinema and HYDROGEN. I am very proud to have worked with many great people over the years who have signed on to the vision."

RED Digital Cinema will continue stronger than ever with Jarred, Tommy and Jamin at the controls. Komodo is about to be launched... and the HYDROGEN One will continue to be supported in the future.

I want to thank everyone for the support I have felt over the years...

Jim" reads his official announcement.

The announcement mentioned that the Hydrogen project is going to shut down but the Hydrogen One will continue to get support in the future. He has also mentioned that Jarred, Tommy and Jamin are going to take control over everything.

The Hydrogen One smartphone was released back in 2018. However, the smartphone didn't get that much attention to how much the company was expecting. Later, RED guaranteed that Hydrogen Two will be a greatly improved smartphone. However, with the shutting down of Hydrogen Project, it seems that the telephone will never turn out to buyers.
