Cinedeck EX v3.5 supports XD-Cam/AVC-Intra codecs, plus third-party control functionality Cinedeck LLC (www.cinedeck.com), pioneering developer of mobile capture systems for motion picture and broadcast production, has announced significant enhancements to its award-winning Cinedeck EX portable, multi-format, recording, monitoring and playback system, with the forthcoming release of Cinedeck EX v3.5. The new Cinedeck v3.5 software, to be shown during NAB 2012 at Cinedeck’s Booth #SL13417, extends Cinedeck EX’s native, multi-codec support to include popular native HD camera formats, and also enables control via a range of third-party devices. With its robust and flexible architecture, Cinedeck EX is already the fastest gateway from production to post. It enables any camera with an HD-SDI or HDMI output to record to a choice of the most preferred finishing standards used in editorial and VFX post production today, including all flavors of Avid DNxHD, Apple ProRes, CineForm, plus uncompressed 444 and uncompressed 422 recording. Time-consuming and costly transcoding processes are eliminated, and material is read-to-edit straight from the Cinedeck EX. Cinedeck EX v3.5 now adds support for the record/playback of HD footage from Sony’s XDCam 50 and XDCam EX 35, and Panasonic AVC-Intra class 50 cameras, and transcodes to a range of editorial and review standards. Additional codecs include JFIF Meridien and H.264 for playout to broadcast servers, dailies deliverables, web-based services and iPad. Cinedeck EX v3.5 also ushers in VTR-like control of common functions including Record, Pause, Stop and Play, via several third-party USB control devices. These include P.I. Engineering’s X-keys XK-12+Jog & Shuttle, Logitech’s Professional Presenter R800, as well as USB keyboard hotkeys. “Cinedeck EX remains as popular and treasured among users as it always has, and the new features included in v3.5, will keep it at the leading edge in terms of deployment and performance,” said Charles Dautremont, CEO of Cinedeck LLC. “With its sheer range of capabilities, Cinedeck EX represents unbeatable value for money for content creators working across the broad spectrum of the media and entertainment industries.” Pricing and Availability: Cinedeck EX v3.5 will be available for download in May 2012, free-of-charge to customers with a current maintenance subscription.
