This powerful Codex on-board recorder has been specifically designed to work in concert with the Arri Alexa camera series. The recorder captures seamlessly the ARRIRAW format out of the REC OUT ports of the camera, either through 1.5G DL (Dual Link) or 3G SL (Single Link), with frame rate options ranging from 23.976 to 30 fps. The Codex ARRIRAW recorder handles the Alexa 16:9 as well as the 4:3 sensors resolution seamlessly, offering an optimal amount of play in post production. It is the ideal companion to shooting anamorphic with the Alexa Plus 4:3 or Studio, taking full advantage of the larger sensor.

The Codex ARRIRAW recorder is a turnkey system that can be bolted atop of the Alexa body replacing the pre-existing handle, making for a compact and easy to handle system. It conveniently powers off of the RS port present on the camera body, but our kit also includes an AC power option.
