Codex Digital

, the leading developer of digital media recorders and media management systems for film and television production, have announced that they have introduced 60fps ARRIRAW capture on the Codex Onboard Recorder. With the release of SUP 5.0, the ARRI Alexa camera is now able to output ARRIRAW at up to 60 frames per second. Franz Kraus of ARRI explains, "Our goal with Alexa is to keep improving its functionality, based on feedback from our customers. Higher frame rate ARRIRAW recording is an example of how we can work closely together with Codex to implement these features. Codex have stepped up and met the challenge."

As part of their ongoing collaboration with ARRI, Codex Digital’s engineers have ensured that Codex recorders and data packs are able to record these higher ARRIRAW frame rates, utilizing existing technology. The Codex ARRIRAW PLUS recorder is now able to record ARRIRAW at up to 60 FPS, as well as two channels of ARRIRAW at up to 30 FPS. Codex recorders have already been used with the Alexa camera this year on many productions utilizing ARRIRAW, including Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (Warner Bros/Paramount), Gravity (Warner Bros), Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (Fox), Rock of Ages (Warner Bros), This is Forty (Universal), World War Z (Paramount) and The Avengers (Paramount/Disney).
