Codex Digital Announces Data Support For ARRI D-21 Camera

Codex Digital, a specialist in high-resolution media recording and workflow, has announced the extension of its HD 2K 4K systems, that record from leading data-mode cameras, with support for ARRI's brand new D-21 and future cameras developed by ARRI.
The Codex Recorder and Codex Portable field recorder already support the ARRI D-20 in data-mode, unleashing the potential of this camera to operate beyond HD.
Now, as an approved supporter of ARRI's ARRIRAW T-Link, Codex Digital's data-recording - uncompressed or JPEG 2000 - will also enable users to record the highest-possible resolution and dynamic range of the D-21 and future ARRI cameras and to deliver the captured material directly into a post-production chain.
The material is recorded complete with all available metadata and delivered in any format required for effects and finishing.
Codex recording systems can capture and store the raw, unprocessed data from ARRI's 4:3 sensor, making maximum use of its 2880 x 2160 (around 3K) and 12-bit bit-depth, with real time playback, including unsqueezed anamorphic material.
This results in far superior picture resolution than when using the 1920 x 1080 HD video output, as the entire image data captured by the sensor is retained.
Codex also features the ability to demosaic and downsample the ARRI cameras' Bayer pattern images in real time. The material captured with the D-20 or D-21 can be viewed and passed directly to editorial in the form of MXF, QuickTime, AVI or DPX files, without the need for lengthy, time-intensive de-Bayering and downconversion.
In ARRI data-mode, Codex also supports all frame-rates, including full vari-speed support.
In production, Codex provides on-set monitoring and multiple types of file outputs for all common production workflows. The monitoring and output files can be configured for all aspect ratios including multiple anamorphic ratios for all combinations of lenses and outputs frames.
Codex Digital, which is headquartered in Soho, London, design and manufacture high-end digital equipment for motion picture and broadcast production. Further information is available at: www.codexdigital.com.
The ARRIRAW T-Link (Transport Link) has been developed by ARRI to provide a simple and standardised method of getting raw data from the ARRIFLEX D-21 to a recorder. It is a method of packing the ARRIRAW 12-bit data into the RGBA HD file format. Transmission is achieved over a standard dual link HD-SDI connection per SMPTE 372M.
