New Solutions Facilitate On-Set Dailies Review, Compact Storage for Quick and Efficient File Transfer
IBC 2011 will see the European debut of the new Codex Vault series. The Codex Vault is a next generation on-set laboratory solution for dailies review, deliverables production and archiving that supports digital cinema cameras made by RED, ARRI, Aaton, Sony and other leading manufacturers.
A fully featured Vault is a standalone solution requiring no external drives because it utilises Codex’s new Transfer Drives, which are also being introduced at IBC 2011. With the ability to support all of the most popular professional cameras, the Vault provides a single, standardised workflow. It also has the capability to produce deliverables in all formats required for dailies review, post production and archival purposes.
The new Codex Transfer Drives provide 1TB of storage in a compact form, designed to work along with the Codex Vault to facilitate the transfer of files from production to post. Each transfer drive can, for example, contain almost 100 minutes of ARRIRAW material from a Codex Onboard Recorder. The Codex Transfer Drives are ideal for moving data back to a post house from set, eliminating the need to transport Codex Datapacks back and forth and increasing efficiency and throughput. The drives will work along with the new Codex Transfer Dock (USB or SAS).
As well as the new products, more Codex solutions will be available for demonstration on the following booths:
* ARRI (Hall 11, Stand F21) – regular demonstrations each day of ARRI/Codex workflows including Codex Transfer Station for Mac OS X plus an ARRIRAW recorder, and an Alexa/Codex ARRIRAW workflow from production through to post.
* Band Pro (Hall 11, Stand F40) – a Codex Onboard Recorder and Codex Transfer Station for Mac will be shown working with an ARRI Alexa camera.
* Assimilate (Hall 7, Stand H11) – showing a Codex Onboard Recorder with an ARRI Alexa camera, plus a Desktop Transfer Station for Mac OS X running with Assimilate’s Scratch Lab.
