User manual for the Video Devices PIX 240i 5" Portable Video PIX 240I KIT
The user manual for the Video Devices PIX 240i 5" Portable Video PIX 240I KIT provides
necessary instructions for the proper use of the product Professional Video - Recorders & Duplication - Solid State/HDD Recorders.
The Sound Devices PIX 240i 5" Portable Video Recorder & Monitor Kit includes the PIX 240i external video recorder and monitor in a robust weatherproof case full with accessories for power, storage, mounting, and monitoring. You get two batteries and an AC adapter, two Sound Devices-approved SSDs and two caddies for securely inserting and locking the SSDs in the recorder, an articulating arm for camera-top mounting and a small stand for tabletop use, a sun shield, and a 3 ft SDI cable and 3 ft HDMI cable. The two caddies also offload the SSD contents via FireWire or USB 3.0.
The PIX 240i features gold-plated 3G-SDI and HDMI video inputs and outputs. By SDI, you can record 1080p 4:4:4 color information in 12-bit color depth to Apple's ProRes 4444 codec, or 1080p 4:2:2 10 or 8-bit to ProRes or Avid's DNxHD, and by HDMI you can record 4:4:4 or 4:2:2 in 10 or 8-bit. For ProRes 4444, the transfer rate is 330Mbps and for the other codecs 220Mbps. All recordings get stored as QuickTime .MOV files to either CF cards or 2.5" SSDs. A built-in scaler will let you perform up, down and cross conversion, pulldown removal, and HD-to-SD / HD-to-SD aspect ratio conversion.
The SDI input and output both support 8-channel, 48k embedded audio, and the HDMI input supports two channels and the output eight channels. For independent audio, the PIX 240i also has full-sized XLR audio inputs for microphone or line level signals. Microphone-level inputs offer 48V phantom power, input limiters, and sweepable high-pass filters. Inputs can also be set to accept up to four channels of AES3 digital audio.
The difference between the PIX 240i and the preceding PIX 240 is that the 240i is equipped with an IPS display which affords an ultra-wide viewing angle. The display is 5" diagonally, glossy, and has an 800 x 480 resolution. Monitoring functions include 12-step False Color, two-level Zebra, 1:1 Pixel Mapping, and Peaking. You can also overlay audio metering, timecode, file type, record status, and frame rate information.
The small stand above-mentioned as one of the accessories is about 2" long and attaches into a 1/4" thread between the two battery mounts on the rear of the monitor to allow you to stand the monitor on a flat surface, like standing a picture frame on a table. The two included SSDs are 240GB PIX-SSD5 Sound Devices drives with a 550 MB/s read speed and 520 MB/s write speed. The supplied sun shield attaches firmly to the four corners of the front of the recorder. And the weatherproof case is made of strong and corrosion-resistant high-density polymer, features a compartmentalized foam interior, and measures a handy 18 x 14 x 7" (approx.).
