PIX 240i is a highly advanced video recorder which can record digital video signals from SDI or HDMI sources to an internal 2.5” drive or CompactFlash (CF) card. This recorder can also record very high quality audio simultaneously with the video to industry standard QuickTime (.mov) files. QuickTime files can be edited with all major video editing programs.

The PIX recorders compress the incoming video signals using the popular Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD codecs at up to 12 bit, 4:4:4 sampling. Both codecs offer excellent video quality in a “ready to edit” file, not requiring transcoding while importing video.

The PIX 240i features both SDI and HDMI inputs and outputs. The PIX 240i offers a full built-in Ambient® Lockit Timecode Generator/Reader, AES/ EBU audio inputs, and provisions to connect to an external, stand-alone eSATA hard drive.
