The portable PIX 240i is an essential companion for any production environment. It simplifi es production and postproduction environments, bringing edit-ready Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD recording to SD/HD/3G-SDI (12-bit 4:4:4) or HDMI-equipped video cameras. The portable PIX 240i records Quicktime fi les to CompactFlash cards or removable 2.5-inch solid-state drives.

The PIX 240i records Quicktime fi les in either Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD video formats. Files recorded in these intra-frame codecs are ready-for-editing directly from the recorder. For colorcritical applications recording to Apple ProRes 4444 provides uncompressed alpha-channel transparency for superb chroma keying and grading performance.

The PIX 240i features a powerful hardware scaler and frame rate converter. Up, down, cross-conversion and pulldown removal give users the ability to record fi les in a customerrequested rate, even rates not supported by the camera. The PIX 240i also supports aspect ratio conversion, HD to SD and SD to HD, including anamorphic conversion.

With its 5-inch, IPS display, the PIX 240i is a fl exible fi eld monitor. Accurate color representation and excellent off-axis visibility assist in framing, exposure evaluation, and focus evaluation with 12-step false color and two-level zebra, peaking, and 1:1 pixel viewing. Defeatable detail overlayed on the picture includes audio metering, timecode, fi le type, record status, and frame rate information. The display also doubles as a fast, simple menu interface.

The PIX 240i is powered from removable Sony-compatible (L-mount) lithium-ion camcorder batteries or external 10-18 VDC power. Battery mounts are connected in parallel so batteries can be hot-swapped during operation, with no loss of power. When external power is removed while a removable battery is mounted, the PIX 240i seamlessly transfers to battery power. Battery source and voltage is shown on the on-screen display

The PIX 240i is designed and built for the rigors of field production with a durable chassis made of light weight, molded, metalized-carbon-fiber. Its four 1/4-20 thread mounts on two different axis offer countless mounting options. All important connections on the PIX 240i use full-sized, locking connectors, including its BNC video and XLR audio connections. Data drives mount to the available PIX-CADDY 2 for a secure, hot-swappable, locking data connection.
