High-end digital recording and workflow specialists Codex (featured in the new issue of Zerb) have collaborated with ARRI to develop a recording and workflow system for the Mini.
“Once again, ARRI has listened to what their customers want and worked with Codex to come up with a great solution – not just a great new camera but an entire workflow,” says Marc Dando, Managing Director of Codex. “We’re excited to showcase our cutting-edge recording technology with this exciting new camera and continue to partner with ARRI to provide the tools that our industry needs.”
The ALEXA Mini has a 4:3 sensor and can shoot ARRIRAW or ProRes at frame rates of up to 120fps to a new Codex multicamera recorder or 30fps to in-camera CFast 2.0 cards. Codex production-proven workflows support both of these options.
Codex’s latest recorder features 8 channels of HD-SDI input plus metadata andembedded audio, which means it can record ARRIRAW from 4 ARRI ALEXA Minis simultaneously. This makes it perfect solution for TV, commercials, music videos and stunts. It has a unique design incorporating a versatile cheeseplate system for the mounting of accessories.
