Cinedeck ships new solid-state recorder

NEW YORK — Cinedeck ( is shipping its Cinedeck RX, a new, rack-mountable, solid-state recording, monitoring and playback system. Cinedeck RX is the next generation of the platform pioneered by Cinedeck EX, the company’s portable, multi-format, HD-SDI recording system. The RX uses the same intuitive touchscreen interface as the Cinedeck EX, reducing training time and speeding deployment in the field. The unit captures from all leading production formats, recording to cost-effective SSD storage media. It can be used for single input, dual-input two camera, or 3D stereo shoots. 

Cindeck RX ($14,995) offers simultaneous native support for Avid and Apple standards, supporting Avid DNxHD (wrapped as MXF OP-Atom or QuickTime), JFIF for proxies, and all Apple ProRes codec formats, including 4444, CineForm and uncompressed 444 (10-bit) or 422 (8- or 10-bit). Its "Double Dual-Stream" feature delivers the flexibility to capture two feeds at a time with the same codec, or to capture one feed with two different compression formats while simultaneously creating back-up copies of each.

A high resolution 7-inch touchscreen display allows for realtime monitoring. It also includes image analysis tools such as edge enhancement for focus assist, clipping, waveform, vectorscope and histogram. Users can also monitor audio via the headphone jack. 

One of the first customers to install Cinedeck RX is outside broadcast service company All Mobile Video ( in New York, which is integrating multiple Cindeck RX systems into its fleet of OB vehicles and in-house post production facility.
