Broadcast Graphics Broadcast Pix has adapted its Rapid CG software, which uses templates to create custom graphics, so that it integrates with Rundown Creator, a web- based collaborative software platform for producing rundowns and scripts for live news and other programmes. The integration allows information for lower-thirds and other graphics included in a Rundown Creator script to be exported to Rapid CG and automatically inserted into existing templates to simplify live production graphics. “Our integration with Rundown Creator saves time and reduces errors,” explained Steve Ellis, chief executive of Broadcast Pix. Digital Recorders Codex has worked with ARRI to develop a recording and workflow system for the new ALEXA Mini. The compact and lightweight Mini has a 4:3 sensor and can shoot ARRIRAW or ProRes at frame rates of up to 120fps to a new Codex multi-camera recorder or 30fps to in-camera CFast 2.0 cards. Codex’s latest recorder features 8 channels of HD-SDI input plus metadata and embedded audio, which means it can record ARRIRAW from 4 ARRI ALEXA Minis simultaneously. “Once again ARRI has listened to what their customers want and worked with Codex to come up with a great solution not just a great new camera but an entire workflow,” said Marc Dando, managing director of Codex. Stephan Schenk, managing director of ARRI, added: “The ALEXA Mini is a valuable addition to the ALEXA family, and we are pleased that Codex is again able to push the technology envelope with this new recorder.” Have you met the Stardom family?
