Cinedeck LLC, manufacturer of multi-format, recording, monitoring and playback systems that provide the fastest gateways to post-production, has teamed up with Sony to launch a rebate promotion on Sony XDCAM EX and F3 cameras when purchased with a Cinedeck EX recorder.
Cinedeck EX is the first cinema-grade, camera-mountable, recording, monitoring and playback system. It enables filmmakers to take full advantage of the Sony F3 S-Log and Sony XDCAM EX picture quality and output performance, with 10-bit uncompressed 422 and 444 recording. All choices of Avid DNxHD, Apple ProRes and CineForm make Cinedeck EX the fastest mobile capture-to-post system. Dual Cinedeck EX systems were recently combined with Sony F3 cameras, and played a pivotal role in the camera-to-post workflow for VFX-laden horror feature film The Ghost Of Goodnight Lane, directed by Alin Bijan.
Sony is now offering rebates on all XDCAM EX and F3 camcorders, when purchased with a Cinedeck EX. The rebate amounts are:
The rebate scheme is ends on December 31st, 2011. Further details and terms and conditions are available here.
The launch of the Sony “Unleashed” rebate follows last week’s news about the release of Cinedeck EX v2.5. Available for immediate download, the new Cinedeck v2.5 software delivers a range of customer-requested features that support an even better operational experience for Cinedeck users. These include a new and enhanced playback engine, expanded timecode operations, upgraded audio metering displays, and a new Windows-based, desktop remote controller for multiple Cinedeck EX systems.
