The Cinedeck MX is a rack-mountable, solid-state recording, monitoring, and playback system designed to maximize file-based production and post workflows. It supports native codec capture diversity to eliminate time-consuming ingest and transcode processes, multiple encodes per input channel, and flexible connectivity and editorial workflow options. Plus it features a small footprint. It also offers versatility on multi-camera, 2D/3D stereo projects. The interface is an intuitive touchscreen with familiar manual controls, allowing for reduced training time and speeding deployment.

Cinedeck MX provides costs savings over the purchase and installation of traditional tapedecks and other ancillary equipment typically used in machine rooms. Occupying 4RU of rack-space, a single Cinedeck MX can be easily configured to undertake the tasks of two tapedecks, reducing spend on equipment and saving physical space and transportation costs.

Offering a wide variety of codecs, multiple real-time codec delivery options, plus real-time up/down/cross conversion capabilities, Cinedeck eliminates time-consuming and costly transcoding processes. As material is delivered to post production in the appropriate ready-to-edit codec, or direct to a playout server in a transmission-ready format, Cinedeck MX slashes the time and cost of getting material from production to post to air. Cinedeck MX has in-built waveform, vectorscope, histogram monitoring, and focus tools, doing away with expenditure on supplementary devices. It also consumes minimal power.

Operation & Controls
Cinedeck MX combines an easy-to-operate 7" touchscreen interface with familiar manual Jog/Shuttle and deck controls. It can also be remote-controlled via popular RS-422 VTR/DDR protocols and supports third-party control devices via USB connection. It comes with a Cinedeck Controller and TCP/IP based application enabling multiple Cinedeck MX systems to be managed from any PC or browser.
Cinedeck MX supports up to eight SSD drives, features in-built redundancy for security of assets, and offers capture resolutions including 1080i, 1080p, 1080PsF, 720p, 2K, 4K, and PAL/NTSC, 480. It offers mix and match encode, with up to four camera/channel inputs and multiple encodes per channel. It can also be configured to record stereoscopic 3D material in any of the supported codecs.
Codec Support
Cinedeck MX offers codec support for Avid, Apple, and a wide range of other popular standards, so that footage is immediately ready for editing in popular editors such as Apple Final Cut Pro, Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere Pro, Sony Vegas, and GV Edius. Codec support includes: Avid DNxHD and DNx444, Avid Meridien JFIF; Apple ProRes 4444, CineForm and uncompressed 444 (10-bit) or 422 (8- or 10-bit); AVC-I 100/50; XDCAM HD50/XDCAM EX35; DVCPRO-HD; and H264 and DPX.
Cinedeck MX monitors video in real-time via a high-resolution, 7" touchscreen display. It provides users with a comprehensive array of image analysis tools, including edge enhancement for focus assist, clipping, waveform, vectorscope, and histogram.
Users can review shots instantly in real-time, and in any order, via the touchscreen display or external HD-SDI or HDMI monitors, allowing instant QC.
Redundant file creation on separate local discs and redundant hot swappable power supplies protect material during capture.
I/O & Connectivity
Cinedeck MX can be deployed in any post-production or broadcast environment, via a wide choice of video, audio, and IT connections including SD, HD, Single and Dual Link, 3G, and 3D stereo. It supports real-time up/down/cross conversion, enabling the painless transition to different production formats. For 3D stereo, it captures via HDMI or HD-SDI, and offers the widest variety of codecs for stereoscopic recording in one device, with footage immediately available for editorial and VFX post production.
