Codex Workflows And Cams At IBC2014

News Image
Codex will showcase its Vault Platform and Codex recording systems and integration with production, monitoring and DI post technologies – from partners including ARRI, Panasonic, Canon, Sony, RED, Dolby, FilmLight and Leica – at stand 11.C71 during IBC2014.

Vault Platform is a modular workflow system that provides fast transfers of camera data to internal storage, plus metadata management, transcoding to a multitude of dailies formats and archiving to LTO tape. The latest Vault Review module enables the playback of HD, 2K and 4K material for review, QC and basic colour grading. It adds the power of GPU processing, enabling transcoding at speeds greater than real time. Brand new at IBC, Codex will show Vault Platform running on the latest Mac Pro workstation.
Codex has extended support to encompass more digital cinematography cameras and will highlight its end-to-end RAW recording solutions for ARRI ALEXA XT and Canon C500 cameras, as well as showing how Codex workflows, powered by Codex Vault, support the latest 4K cameras from Sony and RED.
Codex now delivers ProRes UHD workflows for ARRI's AMIRA camera, via Vault and the Codex CFast 2.0 dock for ARRI AMIRA. Additionally, Codex is partnering with Leica to showcase the latest Leica Summilux-C series lenses, as used in the Codex/ARRIRAW workflows on Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes and X-Men: Days Of Future Past, plus a selection of Leica's new Summicron-C Prime lenses.
Codex is now shipping Codex Action Cam, which can be deployed as an Action | POV camera system on commercials, TV and movie productions, as a companion camera when regular packages are too large for the situation or location, or as a Witness Cam to capture depth information for VFX compositing or stereoscopic conversion. Codex Action Cam comprises a tiny HD camera head and a Codex Camera Control Recorder that delivers full remote control of the camera, plus the proven workflow of the industry-standard Codex.
At NAB 2014, Codex and Panasonic announced a strategic product development alliance, whereby Codex is working with Panasonic to deliver the only compact, high-speed 4K uncompressed RAW recorder for Panasonic's VariCam 35 camera. The recorder, to be shown at Panasonic's stand during IBC (Hall 9.D40 and 9.C45), captures uncompressed 4K VariCam RAW at up to 120fps. Codex's Vault workflow system supports the rapid transfer of digital camera originals for post-production and archiving. The Codex V-RAW recorder connects directly to Panasonic's VariCam 35 camera.
Codex and FilmLight will demonstrate the results of their technology collaboration that links Codex Vault to the Baselight grading system. This allows grading decisions, made on-set with the Baselight FLIP real-time image processor, to be viewed and rendered into dailies deliverables on Vault.
There will also be a technology demo of Dolby's Dolby Vision Display Prototype that supports Dolby Vision, utilising breakthrough quantum dot technology to create over 2,000 nits of brightness while retaining a 0.003 nit black, delivering an astounding 600,000:1 contrast ratio or 16eV (f-stops) of dynamic range. The Dolby Vision Display Prototype will be integrated with the ARRI ALEXA XT, FilmLight FLIP and Codex Vault.
