This Codex Digital Capture Drive Dock works as a hub for file-based workflows. It can easily be configured to produce a full set of deliverables for production and post, from viewing copies to archives. It comes with an ATTO ExpressSAS H680 card that installs into your Mac Pro (or expansion chassis for MacBook Pro).
The ID LED on the rear of the Dock indicates the number assigned to it by the free-download Codex software, as multiple Docks can be connected to one Mac. The standard license for the software allows you copy Digital Camera Negative files (ARRIRAW, CanonRAW, DPX, or ProRes, depending on what format was recorded). Enhanced functionality that can be enabled by installing a license allows metadata management, transcoding with the Codex Virtual File System (VFS), and verified backups using the Codex Disk and Tape Offloader.
