Portable Cinedeck lets filmmakers record and edit high-rez footage

Cinematographers got sick of lugging around bulky and anvil-heavy recording gear, so they designed the “extremely portable” Cinedeck, a hotshot digital video recorder that’s 8 inches wide and weighs 4 pounds. It digitally records HD footage from any camera that outputs HDMI or HDSDI onto its off-the-shelf solid-state drives.

Besides functioning as a digital recorder and high-rez playback unit, this versatile box’s on-board Intel Core2 Extreme quad qx9300 processor powers a fast Windows PC inside, letting you hook up a mouse, keyboard and a larger monitor to edit together your shots using whichever Windows editing software you prefer.

Shipping next month is the first Cinedeck/Extreme model, capable of handling resolutions up to 1080p. Later this year, the company will roll out versions for 3D shooting, higher-rez 2K film work, and even a model that handles footage from those sweet 1080p-shooting digital SLR cameras. Pricing starts at $7995, so you can see it’s intended for pro use on film shoots.
