Cinedeck breaks into 4K

NEW YORK — Cinedeck LLC (, which offers capture systems for digital cinema, broadcast and post production, has introduced new product and software releases that support 4K production and the latest HD delivery standards. 
The new Cinedeck MX4K features two channels of 4K YUV10 30fps recording from 4K and Ultra HD sources, including the Sony F55 camera, while simultaneously creating edit-ready HD master and proxy deliverables, plus streamable H.264s. The MX4K also down-converts the 4K camera feeds in realtime for on-set HD monitoring. The 4K, HD master and proxies are all simultaneously recorded to the MX4K’s embedded SSD drives, with edit-ready deliverables written to SAN for immediate access, and can be encoded to the full gamut of ProRes or Cineform profiles. Users can apply a variety of Look-Up-Tables (LUTs) to the proxy, H.264, on-board display and HD outputs. Cinedeck will release RX3G and MX support for additional digital cameras, framerates, codecs and color spaces in the coming months.
The Cinedeck’s V.5 software release for the RX3G and MX adds AS10/AS11-compliant acquisition and delivery standards — XDCAM HD Op1A, AVC Intra-100 Op1A and D-10 (IMX) Op1A. These new codec/wrapper specifications are championed by the Advanced Media Workflow Association (AMWA) in the US, plus the UK’s Digital Production Partnership (DPP), and are being adopted by major broadcasters worldwide. Cinedeck’s V.5 software release also includes enhanced Edit While Record, EDL and H.264 support features.
Cinedeck will show 4K on the Cinedeck MX, and showcase the new V.5 software, at the HPA Tech retreat in Palm Springs from February 17 to 21.
