Cinedeck successfully completed a record of 4K @ 60p for DIRECTV’s Big Knockout Boxing Event (@BKB) held at Mandalay Resort and Casinos on April 4, 2015. Sony’s F55 was used to record a continuous stream of Prores 4K at 60p directly to the Cinedeck ZX’s internal storage. Cinedeck’s unique ability to record mulitple streams simulataneously also meant that an HD, Proxy and streaming H.264 were recorded at the same time which equated to no downtime transcoding to start editorial.
“Cinedeck delivered everything that was promised – an easy way to record and archive 4K footage at 60 fps. The ease of operation was truly great and the GUI is very intuitive. They played a vital part in our 4K test for our Big Knockout Boxing event in April, 2015,” said John Ward, Senior Vice President, Content Operations, DIRECTV.
