Cinedeck LLC, pioneering developer of capture systems for digital cinema, broadcast and post production, will showcase the multi-faceted capabilities of its product line as direct, cost-effective VTR deck replacements, plug-and-play ingest servers for broadcast, and in archive remastering operations, at IBC 2013, Amsterdam, 13-17 September (Hall10.F39).
Cinedeck RX3G and MX recorders continue to grow in popularity in digital cinema, live, OB and studio production, delivering 2D/3D, 444, Dual-Link, 60P, single/multi-cam recording. Now, brand new Playlisting and RS-422 deck control features, underpinned by an unrivalled range of codecs, realtime multi-format playback and advanced operational toolsets, allow the RX and MX to also undertake a wide range of everyday non-linear editorial, telecine transfer, duplication, archive remastering and post production operations. These leading-edge features also support the RX3G and MX as ideal alternatives to more expensive file-based media ingest servers in broadcasting environments.
Cinedeck MX and RX both create ready-to-edit files in realtime, eliminating time-consuming ingest/transcode processes and enabling fast gateways from production-to-post. Along with small form factors, they also feature Cinedeck’s renowned intuitive touchscreen interface, reducing training time and speeding deployment. Both systems record master and proxy codecs to redundant file destinations, including internal SSDs, local attached storage and network storage (SAN/NAS), creating production and back-up files simultaneously.
Additional features including color LUT import, Segment Record, enhanced Burn-in options, Closed Caption support, H.264 Streaming, and Extended Encoder Audio Support put Cinedecks on an entirely different level compared to other ingest and recording solutions.
Price points as low as $9,495 per play/record channel with the Cinedeck RX3G, and $13,499 with the Cinedeck MX, deliver enormous cost savings compared to the outlay on a single tapedeck, with further savings achieved against the extra shipping, power and auxiliary equipment costs associated with tape.
