We are going to be buying an ARRI Alexa pretty soon and we were wondering about the use of external recording devices. If we connect an external device like an AJA Ki-Pro, will it start recording when you hit the record button on the Camera? Also can you record in LogC to the SxS Cards, but also record linear to the external deck?

Hi Joe,


So here's the deal, you will be able to do both of those things soon, Feb 2nd to be exact. Those features are being added to the camera in v3 of the software. This will give you the ability to send the “record flag” over SDI which will trigger devises that support that (SRW-1, Codex Onboard, Ect.) and allow you to diced which LUTs get applied to which output (Log-C on SDI, Linear on SxS).


Thanks for the question,
