Codex has announced that it is working with Vision Research to provide a robust workflow for the Phantom Flex4K camera. Already widely used around the world with many different cameras, Codex Vault is a mobile workflow device that supports the rapid transfer of the digital camera originals from the Phantom for review, post-production and archiving.

Vault is a modular system that enables the playback of 4K material to a 4K monitor for review, QC and basic color grading, as well as providing fast, reliable transfers to internal storage, metadata management and archiving to LTO tape. Powerful GPU-based processing facilitates fast but extremely high quality transcoding to h.264, Apple ProRes 4444, Avid DNxHD 444 and uncompressed RGB formats.

“We are excited to offer a workflow solution for the Phantom Flex4K camera. It continues the vision that we have for Vault – supporting the multitude of different cameras that are available today with the reliable, streamlined workflows that our customers have come to rely on from Codex,” said Marc Dando, managing director of Codex, “our industry needs secure, robust workflows that are common across camera formats and this is another step in that direction.”

“The incorporation of Phantom CINE files into the Codex media management environment will make the Flex4K camera more accessible,” said Moe Shore of AbelCine, the exclusive reseller of Phantom in North America, and a reseller for Codex. “Codex has it right in offering a common workflow platform to a multitude of camera sources. Filmmakers want choice without restrictions.”
