Compact and powerful, the Video Devices PIX-E7 7" 4K Recording Video Monitor can record 4K video over HDMI and 1080p over 3G-SDI to SpeedDrive SSDs. Not only is the PIX-E7 a powerful recorder, it also has a built-in 7" 1920 x 1200 resolution touchscreen for monitoring framing, checking focus, and displaying scopes. Video Devices designed the PIX-E series of recorders to be compact so you can use them with small cameras and camcorders without weighing them down excessively.
The PIX-E7 can record resolutions up to DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) from HDMI sources and uncompressed 1080p from 3G-SDI sources in the Apple ProRes format in up to 4444 XQ. DCI 4K can be recorded at up to 24 fps and up to 30 fps in UHD (3096 x 2160). HD footage can be recorded at up to 60p for slow motion or projects requiring that frame rate. All inputs have a loop-through output which can go to a client or director's monitor.
High-Resolution LCD Touchscreen and Controls
With a bright 1920 x 1200 resolution touchscreen IPS LCD, the PIX-E7 can display scopes clearly, as well as perform precise punch-ins for focus confirmation. The capacitive touchscreen can be used to navigate menus as well as direct the focus punch-in area. Even though the large touchscreen is convenient, Video Devices has also implemented their intuitive, classic rotary encoder menu navigation style found on the PIX-240i as well as their classic tactile dome-shaped buttons so you can change your settings without putting fingerprints on the screen. For durability, the glass on top of the LCD panel is Gorilla Glass 2 which is scratch and shatter resistant.
The PIX-E records to affordable and fast SpeedDrives. SpeedDrives are based on industry standard mSATA drives contained within a custom-designed USB 3.0 enclosure. The SpeedDrive, which plugs directly into the PIX-E, can double as a standard USB 3.0 thumb drive for high speed offload to any computer without the need for a special cable or drive docking station. SpeedDrives can be bought stand-alone or as an enclosure to hold a 3rd party mSATA drive for more capacity options.
