Because of a Cinedecks ability to replace traditional tape decks and write files directly to network or local storage, the entire archive process becomes more efficient and less costly. Instead of three or four passes and steps to complete an archival encode, use Cinedeck and go directly to the correct file type. Complete the job faster on a single appliance with one pass, in the format you require with all the bells and whistles such as custom sidecar XMLs, Closed Captions, special resolutions and custom embedded metadata.

Each of the encode channels on a Cinedeck can be independently triggered via EDL files or an external controller, providing automated and simultaneous creation of both digital master and proxy versions. Networking the systems allows immediate file creation to your SAN or NAS for direct access by archive and editorial systems.

Cinedecks also support archival codecs and wrappers like mathematically lossless JPEG 2000 wrapped as AS02 or AS11 files, while also supporting high frame-rates and resolutions in UHD and 4K, giving you flexibility for your archiving needs, all in one appliance.
