Overview

Overview

The Sony CBK-55PD Apple ProRes and Avid DNxHD Encoding Board is an additional Codec Board for the PMW-F5 and PMW-F55. The F55/F5 cameras have established codecs including 10 bit XAVC 422, 10 bit HDCAM SR 444,422, MPEG 50Mbps 422, and 16-bit RAW using the optional AXS-R5 RAW recorder. This upgrade will offer even more flexibility in the workflow, allowing users to stay in Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD® throughout the entire pipeline, if they so choose.

This hardware upgrade option for the F55/F5 cameras offers Apple ProRes 422 and Avid DNxHD® encoding. The board includes three operating points of Apple ProRes and two operating points of Avid DNxHD® as of the release date (January 2015). The board requires F5/F55 version 5.0 firmware planned to also be available at the end of December 2014. Files will be encoded internally to the F55/F5 and recorded to Sony’s SxS Pro™+ memory cards. Apple ProRes 4444 is planned to be supported with a future firmware update planned for June 2015.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The CBK-55PD must be installed at a Sony Service Center. This is a one way upgrade, the encoder board cannot be uninstalled.
