NAB 2014: Cinedeck has debuted its new 4K and JPEG2000 workflow at NAB, as well as the latest v5 software release for the Cinedeck RX3G and MX recorders.
At NAB, Cinedeck is showing a MX recording a 4K YUV10 input from sources like the Sony F55 camera, while simultaneously creating edit-ready HD Master and Proxy deliverables, plus streamable H.264 files.
The company has also just announced the MX4K, which features the same 30fps recording and file deliverables from two 4K or Ultra HD sources.
Cinedeck MX recorders can now also down-convert the 4K camera feeds in realtime for on-set HD monitoring.
The 4K, HD Master and Proxy files are all recorded to removable SSD drives, with edit-ready deliverables simultaneously written to SAN for immediate access, and can be encoded to the full gamut of available codec and wrapper profiles.
Users can apply a variety of industry-standard or custom Look-Up-Tables (LUTs) to the Proxy, H.264, onboard display and HD outputs.
Cinedeck founder and chief executive Charles D’Autremont said: “Key differentiators of Cinedeck’s 4K workflow, versus other recording options, lie in their unique ability to simultaneously create 4K, HD master, proxy and streamable deliverables, while also maintaining global file naming and metadata.
These are of huge advantage in efficient content creation, as editors can start work immediately with the peace-of-mind that edits will seamlessly relink between offline and on-line processes.”
Cinedeck’s v5 latest release supports new codec/wrapper specifications advanced by the Advanced Media Workflow Association (AMWA) in the US, and the UK’s Digital Production Partnership (DPP), and now adopted by broadcasters worldwide.
These include the AS10/AS11-compliant acquisition and delivery standards – XDCAM HD Op1A, AVC Intra-100 Op1A and D-10 (IMX) Op1A.
To enhance Cinedeck’s JPEG2000 workflow, MX, MX4K and RX3G support for additional digital cameras, framerates, codecs and wrappers will be ready for shipping in the coming months.
