The Sony SR-D1 SRMemory reader module for the Codex Vault was shown for the first time at IBC2012 in Amsterdam. “Our onboard recorders have become the industry standard but our aim with the Vault is to provide a standardised, streamlined workflow for as many cameras as possible, whether or not they use our onboard recording technology. Consistent data is a common industry goal,” explained Codex’s Managing Director Marc Dando. “Given the interest we’ve seen in Sony’s F65, providing a workflow was an obvious choice for us. “Codex is committed to assisting filmmakers by providing support for the best new camera systems,” Dando added. “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 the critical back-end dailies and archiving workflow for the Sony F65 Digital Motion Picture Camera with an 8K sensor that productions have come to rely on from Codex.www.codexdigital.com
