AbelCine Adds Codex Onboard S to Support Canon C500 and ARRI Alexa
London, England – AbelCine, one of the largest suppliers of cameras and camera accessories in the United States, has boosted its digital cinema resources through the purchase of multiple Codex Onboard S camera recorders. AbelCine purchased the recorders to support productions using the new Canon Cinema EOS C500 cinema camera, the Arri Alexa camera and other digital cameras that generate high resolution raw data.
With offices in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles, AbelCine is a longtime reseller of Codex technologies. The company anticipates strong demand for the Canon C500 and continued demand for the ARRI Alexa and is committed to servicing those productions with best-in-class recording technology.
“An increasing number of productions are choosing to shoot raw,” explains AbelCine Camera Technology Specialist Andy Shipsides. “With Codex systems, we can service everyone, from lower budget productions to high-end features.” Shipsides adds that AbelCine will co-venture with Codex to market and provide training for Onboard S and other Codex products.
AbelCine East Coast Rental Manager Mike Nichols notes that Codex is the preferred choice among the company’s cinematographer clients, especially for recording raw data. “The Codex name is associated with reliability,” he says. “It also has a wonderfully expansive feature set and attractive price point. Codex is the standard for digital cinema production.”
Codex, who are based in London, England design and manufacture high-end digital equipment for motion picture and television production, products include the award-winning high-resolution media recorders and a range of media management stations to manage the entire workflow of a digital production from set to post production. The company is setting new standards for end-to-end production workflow.
