CODEX TO SUPPORT AATON DELTA PENELOPE CAMERA

- AATON’S DELTA PENELOPE DELTAPACK TO WORK WITH CODEX VAULT -

London, UK – 7 September 2011 - Codex, the leading developer of digital media recorders and media management systems for film and television production, today announced an agreement with French camera manufacturer Aaton to support the Aaton Delta Penelope camera with the new Codex Vault products.

The Aaton Delta Penelope camera has a Super 35 Dalsa® CCD sensor and will record uncompressed RAW files compliant with the CinemaDNG format on the internal Deltapack®. According to J.P. Beauviala, founder of Aaton, “We have designed a high-quality, versatile camera with an internal RAW recorder; Codex however provides the workflow. Their technology has become the standard for high-end film-making and we are pleased that our products will work together to provide a seamless and efficient workflow.”

Codex Digital’s new product line, the Vault, will allow for the ingestion of files from Aaton’s Deltapacks. These files will then automatically be archived to LTO-5 media and Codex Transfer Drives, allowing for easy delivery to a post house. The Codex Vault also incorporates the Codex Virtual File System, allowing for the creation of dailies deliverables such as Avid DNxHD MXF, Apple ProRes, DPX and OpenEXR using a unified ACES workflow.  This provides an entire back-end dailies and deliverables workflow for the Delta Penelope Camera.  “Our aim is to provide a standardized, streamlined workflow for as many cameras as possible, whether or not they use our onboard recording technology,” explains Codex’s Managing Director Marc Dando, “and also to provide an easy way of moving files back and forth from production to post production and VFX.”

The full line of Codex Digital products are available from Band Pro.
