8 Input Mode

Double the record channels on ZX45 with Cinedeck’s 8 Input Mode

Cinedeck  ZX45 typically has 4 inputs for HD or SD recording. With a quick firmware change, you can now have up to 8 independent record channels on a ZX45, effectively cutting your production costs in half. (Note: 8-input record is available in limited codecs and wrappers on the MX and ZX40)

8 Input UIIn 8 Input mode, each channel can still be set up with different frame rates and encoder settings.

The four upper channels shown are currently in record mode, indicated by the red record border. The four channels below are in standby – ready to record.

The yellow border indicates the active window.  This is the only channel currently accessible to be managed. All other channels are locked out so accidents are a thing of the past.

Each channel can be expanded to allow full configuration and management. Also, you can gang some or all channels, to trigger record and stop events simultaneously.
