The Codex Vault was introduced last year and has already been used on feature films worldwide such as Cuban Fury, We’re the Millers and Iron Man 3. Customers who have invested in Codex Vaults include leading camera rental facilities like Otto Nemenz and Clairmont Camera in Los Angeles, ARRI CSC in New York and Take 2 in the UK. Marvel Studios have also invested in Codex Vaults.
New Vault features include :
- The Codex Vault now includes support for Sony’s F5 and F55 cameras as part of the Process Module. This includes compressed XAVC camera data recorded to SxS cards as well as the new Sony AXSM cards used to the record RAW output via Sony AXS-R5 recorders.
- Vault also now supports REDMAGs used by RED Epic and Scarlet cameras, providing a reliable archiving and dailies workflow for RED.
- A new Codex Review Module allows for playback of camera-original material (including 4K) directly from Vault for QC and review. It includes the ability to add look-up tables.
- A new, removable Codex Storage Module for Vault features 8-terabytes of storage capacity. It can be used as a substitute for internal storage, providing greater flexibility and the ability to quickly increase storage capacity.
Codex will also be showing a new internal recording module, co-developed with ARRI, for ARRI’s Alexa camera. The XR Module is a side panel that replaces Alexa’s SxS Module. It allows internal recording of ARRIRAW at speeds up to 120 fps (16:9) onto an exceptionally fast 512 GB XR Capture Drive. The module facilitates untethered shooting and in a smaller camera configuration. Apple ProRes can also be captured to the XR Capture Drive for significantly longer recording times. All new ARRI Alexa XT cameras will include the XR Module.
Codex recording and workflow technology has been used in hundreds of film productions worldwide. Recent productions that have relied on Codex products include World War Z, The Host, Iron Man 3, Admission, The Wolverine, White House Down, The Lone Ranger, Trance and The Internship. Current productions employing Codex products include Prisoners, X Men: Days of Future Past, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Animal Rescue, Thor: The Dark World and The Man Who Sold the World.
