Codex Show RAW Workflow From Camera To FCP

Codex showcased RAW workflows from camera to FCP at IBC 2017.

Its Codex Production Suite software v4.5, with new Thunderbolt 3 Capture Drive and Transfer Drive docks was shown with dual LTO-7 archiving solutions, packaged in 2RU rack mount configurations. This is for on-set use to clone, back-up, and transcode deliverables for near-set dailies and editorial post production.

With 4K and 8K workflows now becoming the standard, using the fastest storage on the market to move data from set to near-set is why the CODEX workflow is needed – states the firm.

“Codex’s One Workflow has all the essentials to support the new ARRI SXT-W camera, the Panasonic VariCam Pure, and the Canon EOS C700 camera; powered by Codex Production Suite on the Mac OSX platform and with the Vault XL workstation,” it states.

Codex also demonstrated the new M-Series storage solution for archiving the original camera negative and daily deliverables onto the Media Vault Flexi Drives, and transporting these to the local data centre or post production partner. Format support for LTFS with erasure coding provides long-term cold storage. ZFS formatting provides high-speed playback for 4K files and beyond to allow a shared workgroup access to the files for VFX turn overs and 4K review.
