Sound Devices Pix 260i

The rack-mounted PIX 260i is a file-based video recorder/player that seamlessly replaces tape-based video decks in production and post-production environments.

Using Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD codecs, the PIX 260i records and plays files up to 220 Mbps in high-quality 10-bit 4:2:2 video. It also records 32 tracks of 48 kHz audio. Files from the PIX 260i are ready for direct import into Avid and Final Cut editing platforms, eliminating time-consuming transferring and transcoding. Files can also play out of the PIX 260i for real-time applications.
