Dynamic Rentals, a Burbank technology company for the entertainment industry, has joined with Codex in Los Angeles to provide its workflow products and MediaVault storage to production companies and rental houses on an on-demand basis.The result of this partnership, the companies said in a release, is to allow Dynamic Rentals the ability to offer Codex MediaVaults storage via long-term rentals or leasing options to its partner network and production customers.
Dynamic has added multiple Codex media docks and stations to its inventory, along with multiple 8 terabyte transfer drives for high-speed back-up and cloning of the original camera data.Austin Rios, chief executive officer of Dynamic Rentals, said that production and post-production companies have to buy new storage for every project they work on. The company is able to offer a rental solution to that issue, he said.“As the data flows from camera to post, the storage demands also grow. Codex is a trusted solution with a reputation for excellence in the industry, and together we will be able to provide workflow solutions on-demand, dynamically, anywhere in the world,” Rios said in a statement.
Codex Vice President of Business Development Brian Gaffney said that with production work increasingly in remote locations, secure and reliable storage that can be deployed and accessed anywhere is more important than ever.“We are delighted to be partnering with Dynamic Rentals to be able to offer and deploy our Raw camera workflow solutions and MediaVault storage on an on-demand basis worldwide, allowing more productions access to our award-winning storage ecosystem without the risks associated with capital outlay,” Gaffney said in a statement.In addition to the Codex products, Dynamic also rents cameras from such manufacturers as Arri Group and Sony Corp. and lenses from providers including Carl Zeiss AG and Canon Inc. It has offices in Atlanta, New York and the United Kingdom.
