The ARRI Codex Compact Drive Dock. Like the USB-C Compact Drive Reader, the Compact Drive Dock is compatible to both Mac OS and Windows without the need for additional drivers. Featuring Thunderbolt 3, however, it offers a much higher transfer speed.
The Thunderbolt 3 Dock can transfer a full Compact Drive in under 7 minutes or around 12 minutes if you have to go through an Apple Thunderbolt 3 to 2 Adapter. With the USB-C reader, it will take somewhere from 16 minutes up to 40 minutes if the computer does not offer the latest USB-C (USB 3.2 Gen2) standard. Even on older Thunderbolt 2 machines, the dock therefore offers a significant speed advantage compared to the USB-C reader.
Note: These times do not include checksum verification or HDE encoding. The transfer time will vary, depending on the system configuration (e.g. speed of target drive). If the Thunderbolt port is shared with other Thunderbolt devices, the connection speed will be reduced.
High Density Encoding
Mac users can optionally install the free Codex Device Manager software, which gives them the ability to use on the fly High Density Encoding (HDE) of ARRIRAW footage. With HDE enabled in the app preferences, MXF/ARRIRAW footage will be automatically show up as HDE file sequence (.arx). An HDE ARRIRAW file requires about 40% less storage space than the original MXF/ARRIRAW file. HDE is completely lossless - when an HDE file is decoded, it is a bit-for-bit perfect match to the original file.
