LOS ANGELES—California-based

The Camera House

, a premier provider of camera equipment to the film and television industries, has made a major investment in digital recording and workflow technology from

Codex Digital

. The company has initially taken delivery of a Codex production package, which includes a Codex onboard recorder, data packs and a Transfer Station for Mac OS X. It plans to add other Codex technology in coming months. The new technology will be used to service productions shooting with ARRI ALEXA and other digital cameras and employing file-based workflows.

The Camera House, which has been a pioneer in file-based production, sees Codex as the ultimate ARRIRAW and uncompressed file-based workflow solution, especially for the growing number of productions shooting with the ARRI ALEXA camera and ARRIRAW format. “Codex manufactures what are clearly the best ARRIRAW and uncompressed recorders and workflow solutions in the market,” said Rufus Burnham, the company’s CEO. “We were an early adopter of the original Codex systems and we want to continue working with the best, which the Codex On-Board clearly is.” The move by The Camera House serves as a strong endorsement for Codex Digital technology, and is reflective of the rapid shift toward file-based workflows among film and television productions. “The Camera House has been among the leaders in file-based production and has consistently sought out new technologies to benefit cinematographers and other filmmakers,” said Codex Digital Vice President for Market Development Sarah Priestnall. “We are pleased to have them as a client and partner.”

Recent film and television productions supplied by The Camera House include Lie to Me, Brothers & Sisters, Law & Order Los Angeles & Weeds as well as the upcoming new Fox show The Finder.
