Codex, developer of digital media recorders and media management systems for film and television production, is demoing its new Sony SR-D1 SRMemory reader module for the Codex Vault at IBC 2012 in Amsterdam at the Sony booth (12.A10) and the Codex booth (11.F41).
“Codex is committed to assisting filmmakers by providing support for the best new camera systems,” Codex’s managing director Marc Dando said. “We are especially committed to providing reliable and efficient tools to support raw formats at every point in the production workflow.”
The removable Sony SR-D1 SRMemory reader module on the Codex Vault allows for ingest of the F65’s 16 bit Linear 8K RAW files from the Sony SR Memory cards. These files can then automatically be archived to LTO-5 media, internal storage and Codex Transfer Drives, allowing for easy delivery to a post house. The Codex Vault also incorporates the Codex Virtual File System, allowing for the creation of sound synced dailies deliverables such as Avid DNxHD MXF, Apple ProRes, DPX and OpenEXR using a unified ACES workflow. This provides a back-end dailies and archiving workflow for the Sony F65 digital motion picture camera.
Some Codex products that support the recording and management of raw camera data include the Codex Transfer Station for Mac OS X, the Codex Digital Lab and the Codex Vault S, each of which provides tools for metadata management, quality control, dailies generation and archiving.
The Codex Vault is already being used on feature film productions including Marvel’s Iron Man 3, and it is arriving at rental houses worldwide. The F65 8K digital motion picture camera is being used for feature films including Oblivion and After Earth.
