IBC 2012: Codex's Vault supports Sony F65 workflows

AMSTERDAM — Codex (www.codexdigital.com) is showing the Sony SR-D1 SRMemory reader module for its Vault product at the IBC show, here. The removable Sony SR-D1 SRMemory reader module 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 back-end dailies and archiving workflow for the F65 and its 8K sensor.

“Our aim with the Vault is to provide a standardized, streamlined workflow for as many cameras as possible, whether or not they use our onboard recording technology,” says Codex managing director Mark Dando. “Consistent data is a common industry goal. Given the interest we’ve seen in Sony’s F65, providing a workflow was an obvious choice for us.”

Codex produces a number of products that support the recording and management of raw camera data. They include the Codex Transfer Station for Mac OS X, the Codex Digital Lab and the Codex Vault S, each of which provides tools for metadata management, quality control, dailies generation and archiving.
