Cinedeck multi-channel recorders make multi-cam productions faster and smoother. We continue to design features with workflow flexibility in mind.

Our recorders support a wide variety or codecs, wrappers, formats, and resolutions. Control all the settings right from the display of the recorder or with our Multi-Channel Control app. Record your media directly to your networked storage or to a standard 2.5" SSD. 

From JPEG2000 archive formats to XAVC, ProRes and DNxHR 4K Multicam, Cinedeck recorders cover a wide range of ever-evolving workflows.

We want you to be able to work on any project - no matter the size or scale. We want the sky to be your limit, not your video recorder. Learn more about Cinedeck here.

Our Story


Cinedeck’s roots date back to 2009. It was founded in New York City by a group of cinematographers. With plenty of experience in video production, they were dissatisfied with the hardware available. They wanted the simplicity of a tape recorder with varied digital capabilities.

As a result, they designed an innovative multi-channel recorder unit for video production. It offers on-set monitoring, playback, and quality control. The recorder supports multiple codecs, format, resolution, and audio channels. It also unifies filming and production workflows- all in a single device.

The recorders were well-received by the industry. The team released several models, each with its unique specifics.

Then, they decided to move further… To revolutionize the video editing industry as well.

Post-production is a tedious and time-consuming process. Especially, if you notice an error in a show that’s already exported and QCed. Fixing even tiny mistakes, such as a misspelled title, requires re-exporting and re-QCing, often more than once. That costs companies a lot of time and resources.

In 2016, Cinedeck released cineXtools, their first standalone software application. cineXinsert, its main feature, allows file-to-file insert edit. It works much in the same way as editing on film.

Yet, the challenge was to persuade the industry that insert-edit was even possible. Because industry professionals had grown familiar with workflows they’d been using for years.

Despite the resistance, Cinedeck has proven that it’s not only possible—but very efficient.

An example of a successful project is helping Sky TV rebrand 400 assets.

A traditional transcode workflow would have taken them 600 man-hours to re-render and re-QC. That’s over a month of saved man-hours! CineXtools managed to cut the time almost 40 times. So, they spent only 16 man-hours with our video editing software instead.

Other clients include BBC, Showtime, Envy Post, Cartoon Network and more.

Cinedeck’s also developed CineX API and CineX plugins. They continue working on offering clients an even wider array of options.
