Arri And Codex Develop New Solution For Alexa SXT

News Image
Arri has teamed up with Codex to develop a new recording and workflow system for its Alexa Super Xtended Technology (SXT) camera.

The camera incorporates a new revised Codex recording engine, similar to the system that is built into the ALEXA 65, and support the latest SXR Capture Drives, which offer a data rate of 20GB/s.

Existing XR Capture Drives will also work with Alexa SXT cameras, while a new Codex-developed media bay will feature adaptors for XR and SXR Capture Drives, SxS cards and CFast 2.0 cards.

Marc Dando, Managing Director of Codex, said: "Arri is continuing to raise the bar and expand the ALEXA family but they are also protecting their existing customers by offering an upgrade path for Alexa XT owners.

"It's great to work with Arri, to set new performance capabilities with our new media, and to show that the Arri - Codex partnership is continuing to expand the creative and technical choices available to cinematographers."
