The Sound Devices PIX 270i Video Recorder & Network Connected Video Deck is a file-based video recorder featuring 3G-SDI and HDMI video inputs and outputs. It records edit-ready Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD files and allows sequential or simultaneous recording to up to four Sound Devices-approved SSDs. A built-in scaler will let you perform up, down, and cross conversion, pulldown removal, and aspect ratio conversions between HD and SD.
Extensive network connectivity and multi-unit synchronization supports grouping multiple PIX recorders over Ethernet for simultaneous frame-accurate multicam recording and playback. The PIX 270i can group with other PIX 270i recorders, as well as PIX 260i, with all of the recorders functioning as a single system. The grouped recorders can be controlled two ways: directly through the PIX hardware interface or via a browser accessing the embedded built-in web-based control panel.
The PIX 270i records Quicktime files in a variety of data rates, from Apple ProRes 4444 at 330 Mbps down to 36 Mbps proxy files. It supports eight channels of embedded audio over its HDMI input/output and 16 channels of embedded audio over its SDI input/output. For independent audio, two channels of analog audio in/out via balanced line-level XLR inputs and eight channels of AES/EBU digital audio is also available. For large-scale audio systems, the PIX 270i supports 64 channels of MADI audio and 64 channels of Dante audio I/O.
For monitoring your footage, the PIX 270i features a 5" IPS display with 800x480 resolution. A built-in web server lets you control and setup the PIX 270i using any browser-capable device. You can also add external control devices using the RS-422 port or USB port. The PIX 270i is housed in a 1/2-rack 2U chassis and is powered by 10-27 VDC via a 4-pin XLR connector.
