Codex Digital announces data support for ARRIFLEX D-21

April 24, 2008

Codex Digital announced at NAB2008 that it is adding data support for ARRI’s new ARRIFLEX D-21, as well as future ARRI cameras, to its HD, 2K and 4K systems.

The Codex Recorder and Codex Portable field recorder currently support the ARRIFLEX D-20 in data mode, unleashing the potential of this camera to operate beyond HD. As an approved supporter of ARRI’s ARRIRAW T-Link, Codex Digital’s uncompressed and JPEG2000 data recording will let users record the D-21’s highest possible resolution and dynamic range and deliver captured material directly into a post-production chain. The material is recorded complete with all available metadata and delivered in any format required for effects and finishing.

Codex recording systems can capture and store the raw, unprocessed data from ARRI’s 4:3 sensor, making maximum use of its 2880 x 2160 resolution and 12-bit bit depth, with real-time playback, including unsqueezed anamorphic material.
