“The ability to encode 4 cameras direct into the Cinedeck, at the same time, creating MXF files, both online & offline Avid media real time, meant we no longer had to capture off of the HDCAM’s overnight. This saved us thousands of dollars in production costs, and allowed our editors and directors, to access the media the same day of the shoot.”
~Jim Leber, Senior Director Technical Operations, Nickelodeon Productions
Nickelodeon has integrated multiple Cinedeck RXs into the workflow of five of its most recent children’s shows. Cinedeck RXs capture the HD output from Sony HDC 1500 ISO cameras, plus the line cut, and record the material in real-time to DNxHD36 for offline editorial. This material is then rapidly downloaded to hard drives via Cinedeck RX’s eSATA connection and shipped to the editorial team.
