Cinedeck will ship v4.2 software release on July 1st that enables its dual-channel RX and quad-channel MX file-based recorders to cost-effectively replace traditional tapedecks in everyday editorial and post-production operations.
Headline features include Playlisting, RS-422 deck control, LUT shaders, Segment Record, H.264 streaming, plus enhanced Audio options, Burn-ins and Closed Caption recording. This new release will also include an array of additional features, including ArriRaw recording and 3D stereo modes, which further advance the versatility of Cinedeck recorders in digital cinema and broadcast workflows.
Prices start at $9,495 per play/record channel with the Cinedeck RX3G, and $13,499 with the Cinedeck MX.
Post house FotoKem in Burbank, California, has already implemented the v4.2 upgrade, successfully replacing traditional tapedecks with Cinedeck recorders..
“FotoKem is highly-active in HD and 2K film and tape transfers to file-based media, and this latest v4.2 software upgrade allows the Cinedeck recorders to play fundamental roles within both workflows,” said Paul Chapman, senior vice president of technology at FotoKem. “Compared to other products, we decided Cinedeck MX and RX3G with the latest deck control functions offered the most extensive feature set for the best price. Their abilities to perform frame-accurate capture, quickly and efficiently, coupled with simultaneous delivery of multiple file types for editorial, make them a great replacement for traditional tape decks.”
