Codex announced an agreement with Sony to provide workflows for its new F65 CineAlta digital motion picture camera.
Codex’s new product line, the Vault, will allow for the ingestion of files from the Sony F65. The files will automatically be archived to LTO-5 media and Codex Transfer Drives, allowing for easy delivery to a post house.
The Codex Vault incorporates the Codex Virtual File System, allowing for the creation of dailies deliverables including Avid DNxHD MXF, Apple ProRes, DPX and OpenEXR using a unified ACES workflow. This provides a back-end dailies and archiving workflow for the camera.
In addition, the Codex Platform software will provide a workflow for the F65 on Mac OS X, also incorporating the Codex Virtual File System. Either system can be integrated with other products, including Colorfront OSD via a 10gigE connection.
“Our onboard recorders have become the industry standard but our aim is to provide a standardized, streamlined workflow for as many cameras as possible, whether or not they use our onboard recording technology,” explained Codex’s managing director Marc Dando. “Given the enormous interest we’ve seen in the F65, providing a workflow to support it was a obvious choice for us.”
