Codex To Showcase Action Cam At IBC2014

News Image
Codex is now shipping the Action Cam and will showcase the new camera at IBC2014, Stand 11.C71.

Codex Action Cam can be deployed as an Action | POV camera system, 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 3D stereoscopic conversion. It comprises a tiny HD camera head and a Codex Camera Control Recorder.
Among the first US customers for Codex Action Cam is Radiant Images in Los Angeles. The company’s in-house engineering team has developed a new range of camera rigs with Codex Action Cam – fitting Codex Action Cam heads with a wide variety of miniature prime and zoom lenses, housing Codex Action Cam with a helmet to create the Freedom POV Camera, and different easy-carrying systems for the Camera Control Recorder, battery packs and lens/focal control systems.
"The strength of Radiant Images lies in our ability to help filmmakers achieve their vision without compromise. We create simple, fast and efficient solutions that push projects forwards, and Codex Action Cam fits the bill," said Radiant Images co-founder Michael Mansouri. "The dynamic range of the Codex Action Cam HD CCD delivers exceptional image quality, especially in the highlights. Above all it is a versatile point-shoot-post package that can be developed and deployed in new and exciting ways, while delivering a workflow you can trust."
Moving Picture Company creative director, Paul O'Shea, who supervised the visual effects on Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare, said: "Codex Action Cam allows us to work in the tightest situations, and capture exciting POV action, without compromising the quality that we need for creating visual effects. The images from Codex Action Cam can be blended seamlessly with those from other digital cameras too. Indeed, on Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare the camera quality was so good we could use it as a second unit camera to shoot bluescreen plates."
