WHAT IS IT
It is an extremely capable, upgradeable, highly rugged, portable, direct-to-disk video recorder designed and built by cinematographers for cinematographers.
It is compatible with HDMI/HDSDI/LAN cameras and records to the widest choice of formats including Uncompressed 4:4:4 or 4:2:2 HD, Apple ProRes, Avid DNxHD (wrapped in MXF or MOV), Avid Meridien JFIF, and CineForm™ Digital Intermediate files in MOV format via HDMI and single/dual link 3G HDSDI. It also records to the world's most popular camera and playback formats including AVC-Intra, XDCAM HD, and H.264. This gives you the fastest file-based workflow possible.
It has a large 7" high-res preview/focus/playback monitor and physical button interface for all commonly used functions. Record settings and playback transport are accessed via a stunningly straightforward touchscreen user interface.
It comes in three models – Cinedeck EX, Cinedeck RX, and Cinedeck MX – each designed to focus on specific needs in different areas of video production.
Cinedeck EX is the world's first and most versatile, cinema-grade, camera-mountable, recording, monitoring, and playback device.
Cinedeck RX has all the versatility of the original Cinedeck EX designed into a rack-mountable configuration with added features to meet the needs of production facilities and OB production.
Cinedeck MX expands the capabilities to provide a lightweight, more capable tapeless alternative to expensive hi-end tapedecks, without compromising on the functionality AND quality that you'd expect for that type of production.
