Codex V-RAW Recorder Now Available

News Image
Codex is now delivering the Codex V-RAW Recorder for the Panasonic VariCam 35 camera to customers worldwide.

Combining high-performance with ease-of-use, the Codex V-RAW Recorder adds important uncompressed RAW capture to Panasonic's new camera platform by enabling the recording of 4K RAW at up to 120fps.

The Codex V-RAW Recorder records to the next-generation Codex Capture Drive 2.0, which has a bandwidth of 20Gb/s. The combination of the V-RAW Recorder and the Capture Drive 2.0 can easily handle the bandwidth required for recording uncompressed 4K RAW at up to 120fps from the Panasonic VariCam 35. For simplicity, the V-RAW Recorder comes as a direct-attach module for the VariCam 35 camera, eliminating the need for cables and making operation straightforward. Adding more functionality to the camera package, the V-RAW Recorder also powers the camera and has three 24V accessory power outputs.

"We've worked with Codex recording and workflow technology for several years and they have great, reliable products backed by excellent support," said Michael Condon, SOC, VP Digital Division at Clairmont Camera in Los Angeles. "We are excited to get the new Codex V-RAW Recorders into the hands of our rental customers and happy that Panasonic chose Codex as their technology partner for RAW workflows."

The Codex V-RAW Recorder for the VariCam 35 continues Codex's tradition of providing a fully-featured, streamlined workflow from production to post and archive, via Codex Vault Platform, Vault Review, Review Live and Media Vault systems. Existing Vault customers, such as Atlanta-based cinematographer and rental house owner John Sharaf, appreciate that despite the data requirements of the VariCam 35, Codex products are engineered to meet today's challenge of faster throughput. Along with Clairmont Camera, Sharaf is one of the first V-RAW Recorder owners in the United States.

"As a Codex Vault owner, I am very familiar with Codex products already," said Sharaf. "Panasonic couldn't have chosen a better partner for RAW recording and workflow for the Varicam 35. Codex's products are cutting-edge and backed-up by world-class customer support."
