Codecs: ProRes (.mov) | DNxHR (.mxf OpAtom)

Framerate: up to 60p

* note: 4K / 60p recording is only available on ZX45. Quad HD/2K = one 4K/UHD channel per deck.

Cinedeck ZX is available in three upgradeable base models. Choose the base system that best fits your requirements and budget and then, when requirements change, get in touch about upgrading.

The ZX is what you would expect from a video recording and playback server appliance. The main back panel differences between the ZX20, ZX40 and the ZX45 (shown) are channel count and not all models include a DVI port for user interface monitor connection.

Cinedeck Compatibility

All current Cinedeck models run the same easy-to-use interface and are built around the same video hardware. They are interchangeable, supporting the same workflows for a wide range of production and post production tasks. All Cinedeck models offer simultaneous recording of all your master and proxy deliverables to get you to post faster. Local disks, SAN, NAS, etc., your files can be recorded directly to the storage you need to work from. Additionally, redundant recording gives you peace of mind by writing secondary independent files to an additional record destination of your choosing.


COMPACT 2-CHANNEL VTR REPLACEMENT


Cinedeck RX2 is perfect for environments where space and weight is at a premium, and when cooling and power draw are of utmost importance. All the connections are designed with protection and accessibility in mind. Like it’s predecessor, the RX2 provides a full-featured UI in a conveniently small package.


CODEC SUPPORT

RX2 supports the full complement of Cinedeck standard codecs in every quality and wrapper combination:Pro Res, XDCAM, DNxHD, AVC-lntra, DVCPRO HD, H.264, IMX( D10)

 Wrapper Support: MOV, MP4, MXF OPATOM, MXF OP1A, AS11, AS02

H.264 UHD and 4K recording up to 30P is also supported on RX2 with the addition of the optional GPU co-processing board.

FULL DUPLEX I/O

Like it’s predecessor, each channel of the RX2 can be controlled independently. So you can record on one channel while playing back on the other with different framerates and codecs across the two channels.

PLUG & PLAY

Anyone familiar with the operation of a tape deck will feel immediately comfortable with the RX2. Straightforward touchscreen buttons make the device easy to operate with little training time. The built-in high resolution LCD offers convenience of use while recording, playback or insert-editing.

FILE-BASED INSERT EDIT

With advanced deck control, each channel of RX2 can be controlled just like a tapedeck over RS422. Use each channel of RX2 as an independent tape deck while controlling each channel separately using your preferred NLE, 3rd party output device, or even a tapedeck.

10GbE | 8Gb FIBER CAPABLE

RX2 has an available PCIe lane open for an optional 10GbE or 8Gb fiber network card for record or playback across your high bandwidth network. RX2 also has a hot-swappable sled that can hold up to 2 standard 2.5” SSDs for additional record destinations.

Driving any Cinedeck is extremely intuitive. RX2 can be fully managed and operated via the built-in touch-screen but they can also have an external display, keyboard and mouse connected, directly or through an appropriate KVM, for easy desktop access.

PURPOSE BUILT 4-CH H.264 RECORDER


Deliver multiple high-quality H.264s with an all in one plug and play device. For the many production team members that need to ‘walk away with the show in their pocket’, HX1 creates H.264 show files and line‑cuts ‘on‑site. HX1 records up to four HD or SD sources at a broad range of quality levels from full HD on down and can connect up to ten USB3 thumb‑drives. Importantly, HX1 incorporates the same easy-to-use interface as other Cinedeck hardware platforms, allowing for easy setup and operation.


CUSTOMIZABLE BURN-INs

HX1 incorporates all the features needed to create H.264 files that customers can walk away with. With options like file name, user text or timecode, HX1 allows you to select and burn-in up to 8 different variables per channel that can be customized further for position, text color and text size.

FULL PROFESSIONAL AUDIO SUPPORT

Like other Cinedeck recorders, each HX1 channel records professional quality audio, 24bit @ 48kHz – up to 16 embedded SDI audio channels or 8 channels over AES. The Cinedeck audio mapping tool allows you to remap the audio channels to a configuration that best works for you.

LOTS OF H.264 PROFILES TO CHOOSE FROM

Cinedeck HX1 supports more than thirty H.264 profiles and if you don’t see one that fits your specific requirements, Cinedeck will create a custom profile that meets your specification.

HIGH QUALITY FILES FOR IMMEDIATE DELIVERY

Cinedecks have been ingesting and creating a variety of file types for years. We’re pros at encoding the highest quality images that can be immediately turned around for marketing purposes; or use the encodes to make color or lighting decisions.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

      • PAUSE RECORD – Cinedeck’s Pause Record function allows you to create a clean H.264 director’s copy of your production. During stage setup or a set transition, simply “PAUSE”. When you’re ready to pick up the recording again, press “RESUME”. This ensures that you don’t record hours of non-essential material.
      • ALL IN ONE DEVICE – Like all Cinedeck recorders, HX1 can accept all signals from SD to 3G. It’s an all in one, plug and play device that can accept LTC or embedded timecode, encode professional audio to your H.264 file, as well as generate user-defined burn-ins.
      • NO TIME LIMIT – Unlike recording to DVD, there is no time limit for recording to H.264 files. Record continuously for hours without worry.

STANDALONE INSERT-EDIT APP FOR MAC & PC



cineXtools is Cinedeck’s stand-alone, file-to-file insert edit application. The core module, cineXinsert, is a groundbreaking NLE companion utility that shaves hours off the time spent making changes. Simply change a shot, audio stem or replace a frame with a bad pixel in seconds instead of re-exporting the entire show. With additional modules for audio versioning, DPP metadata management and adjusting timecode, you can start saving time and money now, with a tool that will accelerate your post workflow immediately.

For more infomation, visit the cinextools site. 


TRUE FILE-BASED INSERT EDIT

cineXtools provides the ability to accurately replace video, audio and close caption data in existing flat files. The insert process is almost identical to inserting into a video tape. Timecode is used to define in and out points for the source and master and like inserting on tape, replacement content is truly overwriting the original data. It’s even possible to use a different codec, for example you can use DNxHD content as the source and cineX will transcode it into a ProRes master.

AUDIO VERSIONING TOOL

Audio Versioning lets you do a much faster than real-time merge of video and audio content. Add or remove audio tracks, re-route or re-map existing tracks, as well as use .wav stems as the source for inserting new tracks.

TIMECODE RESTRIPE

With the Timecode Editor, you can instantly change the running timecode for a loaded file as well as toggle its timecode between Drop-Frame and Non-Drop Frame.

CLOSED CAPTION MODULE

The Closed Caption Module lets you add, insert and change .CAP and .SCC source files. Insert captions across an entire program or just patch a section of the program. Additional features include 608 to 708 caption conversion for SD to HD upconverts and caption exports to .CAP, .SCC or text files.

CINEXTOOLS AS11-DPP METADATA EDITOR

The cineXtools UK DPP AS-11 Metadata Editor instantly adjusts, validates and updates the DPP required metadata that accompanies AVC-Intra 100 master files. The Metadata Editor is extremely useful to content producers delivering files to companies and broadcasters that endorse the technical specifications set out by the United Kingdom’s DPP (Digital Production Partnership). Combining the ability to overwrite fixes to video and audio with the insert edit tool, and the AS-11 metadata editor means that delivering AS11 files just got a whole lot easier.

4K – UHD SUPPORT

cineXtools can run on virtually any computer and it is resolution independent which means 4K/UHD Support is available with all paid versions. Don’t waste hours re-exoporting when you can use cineXtools to overwrite new content to your files instantly.
