On top of the earlier announcement of a new Mini Raw Camera and Recorder package, Codex has now announced that they are working with Vision Research to provide a workflow for the Phantom Flex4k. 4K high-speed acquisition can very data intensive, but in conjunction with their Vault system, Codex will support the rapid transfer and archive of the Flex4K digital camera original data. Vault is a modular system that enables the playback of 4K material to a 4K monitor for review, QC and basic color grading, as well as transfers to internal storage, metadata management and archiving to LTO tape. Internal GPU-based processing facilitates fast but extremely high quality transcoding to h.264, Apple ProRes 4444, Avid DNxHD 444 and uncompressed RGB formats.
Both companies, Codex and Vision Research, are supporters of DCS, and it is gratifying to see them working together to create better, more streamlined workflows that meet the challenges of acquiring in higher resolutions.
