The Camera House, an L.A.-based provider of camera equipment to the film and television industries, has made a major investment in digital recording and workflow technology from Codex Digital.
The company has initially taken delivery of a Codex production package, which includes a Codex onboard recorder, data packs and a Transfer Station for Mac OS X. It plans to add other Codex technology in coming months. The Camera House plans to use the new Codex technology to service productions shooting ARRIRAW with the ARRI ALEXA camera or other uncompressed file-based workflows.
“Codex manufactures what are clearly the best ARRIRAW and uncompressed recorders and workflow solutions in the market,” said Rufus Burnham, The Camera House, CEO. “We were an early adopter of the original Codex systems and we want to continue working with the best, which the Codex On-Board clearly is.”
“The Camera House has been among the leaders in file-based production and has consistently sought out new technologies to benefit cinematographers and other filmmakers,” said Codex Digital vice president for market development Sarah Priestnall. “We are pleased to have them as a client and partner.”
Recent film and television productions supplied by The Camera House include Lie to Me, Brothers & Sisters, Law & Order Los Angeles and Weeds as well as the upcoming new Fox show The Finder.
