Sound Devices has unveiled the PIX line of audio and video recorders at InfoComm 2011 in Orlando, Florida.
Located on Booth 2274, the PIX 220 and PIC 240 are the firm’s first portable video recorders.
“Sound Devices has taken the next step and introduced high-performance video along with high performance audio with our new PIX recorders,” said Matt Anderson, director of engineering for Sound Devices. “While our existing products have become the audio recorders of choice for countless productions worldwide, their superior design, reliability and support have now been extended into our new video products with the introduction of the PIX 220 and PIX 240. AV professionals now have an all-in-one product for their audio/video recording needs.”
The new PIX 220 and PIX 240 connects to cameras with HDMI and records directly to QuickTime using Apple’s ProRes or optionally, Avid’s DNxHD codec. Since PIX recorders use ProRes and DNxHD, files recorded in the field can be used directly in post-production, making the workflow simple and fast. The PIX 240 adds even more flexibility, with its HD-SDI input and simultaneous HD-SDI and HDMI outputs.
The audio circuitry on the PIX 220 and PIX 240 was based on Sound Devices’ 7-Series digital audio recorders. The low-noise (-128 dBu EIN), high headroom, high-bandwidth inputs are mic/line switchable and include limiters, high-pass filters and phantom power.
