Sony CBK-55PD - Additional Codec Board for the PMW-F5 and PMW-F55.

Sony is pleased to announce the CBK-55PD* Additional Codec Board for the PMW-F5 and PMW-F55. This hardware upgrade option for the F55/F5 cameras offers Apple ProRes 422 and Avid DNxHD encoding. The board includes three operating points of Apple ProRes and two operating points of Avid DNxHD as of the release date. The board requires Firmware version 5.0. Files will be encoded internally to the F55/F5 and recorded to Sony's SxS Pro™ + memory cards. Apple ProRes 4444 is planned to be supported with a future firmware update planned for June 2015.

The F55/F5 cameras have established codecs including 10 bit XAVC™ 422, 10 bit HDCAM SR 444,422, MPEG 50Mbps 422, and 16-bit RAW (using the optional AXS-R5 RAW recorder). The upgrade offers more flexibility in the workflow, allowing users to stay in Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD throughout the entire pipeline.

NOTE: *The CBK-55PD must be installed at a Sony Service Center. End users must schedule an appointment with the Sony Service Center for the installation. This is a one way upgrade, the encoder board cannot be uninstalled.
