With these new capabilities, available in forthcoming software upgrades, Cinedeck will significantly expand the toolsets of its flagship recording systems for on-set and post-production professionals working in digital cinema, episodic broadcast and live event production.
Extended Camera and Format support:
Cinedeck RX3G and MX will support the capture and realtime playback of ARRIRAW. Forthcoming upgrades will also support JPEG 2000, now the standard for DCI-compliant cinema packages,
Cinedeck will show the import and application of non-destructive, viewing LUTs (Look-Up Tables) to recorded content, via the on-board displays on the RX3G and MX, as well as to output monitors. This capability is especially useful when a production is shooting RAW unprocessed images.
ACES Color workflow:
Cinedeck will be supporting the IIF/ACES workflow, developed by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' Science and Technology Council to establish a standard format to maintain color accuracy for digital production and post.
Enhanced RS422 Deck Control
Cinedeck will also preview a range of further enhancements, set to ship later in 2013.
Cinedeck will also release new control applications. Currently, Cinedeck recorders have a TCP/IP based, multi-machine control interface for the Windows platform, which manages control and settings for up to 24 Cinedeck channels. Coming soon will be an updated multi-machine interface for PC, Mac as well as iOS and Android mobile devices.
