Codex products are designed to function as an ecosystem. Recorders capture RAW, Uncompressed HD, or wavelet encoded HD material – plus audio and metadata – onto a removable, solid-state Codex datapack. On the ARRI Alexa, the Codex recorders support frame rates up to 60 frames per second (16:9) or 48 frames per second (4:3).
Capturing in the Codex Virtual File System affords flexibility with metadata editing, deliverables creation, and archiving of original camera data. Several hardware options for offloading material, including desktop docks and the Codex Vault, are available depending on production needs.
