About this item

The Sound Devices PIX 220i Video Recorder with IPS Display is a file-based video recorder and player with focus and exposure assist monitoring functions. It records in Apple's ProRes or Avid's DNxHD codecs at multiple data rates up to 220 Mbps, in 8- and 10-bit color and it plays these recordings back as QuickTime files on a 5-inch display that has IPS technology back of it. IPS -- In Plane Switching -- enhances color accuracy and viewing angle. PIX also records and plays back up to 4 channels of audio simultaneously with video.

A powerful feature PIX has is a hardware-based scaler/converter that's menu-operable. It can, in real-time, convert the resolution and frame rate of an input camera signal and record and output the signal in the new resolution and rate. You can convert up, down and cross, from 480i through 1080p.

All recording is done onto either 2.5" SSDs or CompactFlash drives, both sold separately. PIX formats both CompactFlash and SSD drives as UDF volumes that are directly mountable, readable and writable in Mac OS and Windows.

  • 3:2 Pulldown Removal: Actively views video fields looking for duplicates. When these duplicates are sensed, then this cadence is locked in and the appropriate extra fields are removed. The process depends on motion in the incoming video
  • Aspect Ratio Conversion: PIX allows for selectable Aspect Ratio picture styles. When converting HD to SD, styles include Letterbox, Crop and Anamorphic. When converting SD to HD, styles include Anamorphic, Pillar Box, Zoom Letterbox Zoom 14:9 and Zoom Wide
  • Audio Delay: PIX enables you to select audio delay to synchronize sound with picture. You can defeat audio delay at audio output while maintaining the delayed audio to the recorded file. This feature is for use when connecting the PIX audio output to the camera's audio input
