Cinedeck LLC (www.cinedeck.com), pioneering developer of capture systems for digital cinema, broadcast and post production, will showcase the multi-faceted capabilities of its product line as direct, cost-effective VTR deck replacements, plug-and-play ingest servers for broadcast, and in archive remastering operations, at IBC 2013, Amsterdam, 13-17 September (Hall10.F39).
Cinedeck RX3G and MX recorders continue to grow in popularity in digital cinema, live, OB and studio production, delivering 2D/3D, 444, Dual-Link, 60P, single/multi-cam recording. Now, brand new Playlisting and RS-422 deck control features, underpinned by an unrivalled range of codecs, realtime multi-format playback and advanced operational toolsets, allow the RX and MX to also undertake a wide range of everyday non-linear editorial, telecine transfer, duplication, archive remastering and post production operations. These leading-edge features also support the RX3G and MX as ideal alternatives to more expensive file-based media ingest servers in broadcasting environments.
Cinedeck MX and RX both create ready-to-edit files in realtime, eliminating time-consuming ingest/transcode processes and enabling fast gateways from production-to-post. Along with small form factors, they also feature Cinedecks renowned intuitive touchscreen interface, reducing training time and speeding deployment. Both systems record master and proxy codecs to redundant file destinations, including internal SSDs, local attached storage and network storage (SAN/NAS), creating production and back-up files simultaneously.
Additional features including color LUT import, Segment Record, enhanced Burn-in options, Closed Caption support, H.264 Streaming, and Extended Encoder Audio Support put Cinedecks on an entirely different level compared to other ingest and recording solutions.
Price points as low as $9,495 per play/record channel with the Cinedeck RX3G, and $13,499 with the Cinedeck MX, deliver enormous cost savings compared to the outlay on a single tapedeck, with further savings achieved against the extra shipping, power and auxiliary equipment costs associated with tape.
Founded by cinematographers, and headquartered in the heart of New York City, USA, Cinedeck manufactures innovative, touchscreen recording systems for use with all popular digital cinematography cameras. Along with on-set monitoring, playback and quality control capabilities, these recorders also unify camera-to-post workflows by offering the industrys most comprehensive range of ready-to-edit output formats. Cinedeck EX, the industrys first camera-mountable device, has proven essential to the workflow on hundreds of TV and cinema productions, and has won TV Technologys 2010 STAR Award, the 2010 Vidy Award, DV Magazines Award of Excellence, and Studio Dailys 2012 Prime Award for Best User Interface/User Experience. Continuing this pioneering spirit, Cinedeck LLC has addressed the challenges of the mobile OB broadcaster with its Cinedeck RX rack-mounted, multi-format recorder, monitor and playback system. Cinedeck RX was awarded the prestigious 2011 Pick Hit Award at IBC 2011 from Broadcast Engineering Magazine.
