NAB 2015: Codex Updates

I stopped by the Codex booth today to chat with Sarah Priestnall, VP Market Development, about their new VariCam V-RAW Recorder.

Designed specifically for the Panasonic VariCam 35, the unit attaches directly to the back of the camera. The V-RAW Recorder captures uncompressed VariCam-RAW (V-RAW) 4K at up to 120 fps using the new 1TB or 2TB Capture Drive 2.0 media. These Codex Capture Drives offer 52 minutes or 1 hour 45 minutes of run time at 24 fps respectively and easily accommodates higher frame rates. The V-RAW Recorder uses the standard Codex workflow, including the Vault Platform and Vault Review, which now run on Mac OS.

I also took a look at the Codex Action Cam, which is an extremely compact HD, 12-bit raw camera that is ideal for stunts or car rigs. Because two cameras can record to the same control unit, they are great for 3D, virtual reality, or any project that requires multiple cameras. The Codex booth also has a tech demo of the new Multi-Camera Recorder that accepts inputs from eight Action Cams or four ALEXA Mini's. Check out my blog video above for more on all these products.

To make things clearer, I touched on data space requirements, recording simultaneously in 4K and HD, LUTs, external recorders, and more.

With so many cameras these days offering different recording options, combined with the popularity of external recorders, it's no wonder there are a lot of questions about this topic.
