The PIX 270i file-based video deck delivers the performance, quality, and reliability required for fast-paced studio, live sports, event, and mobile multi-camera production. It seamlessly replaces tape- and disc-based video decks and provides a cost-effect and compact alternative to complex video servers.
Extensive network connectivity and multi-unit synchronization support grouping multiple PIX recorders over Ethernet for simultaneous frame-accurate multicam recording and playback. The PIX 270i can group with other PIX 270i recorders, as well as PIX 260i, with all of the recorders functioning as a single system. The grouped recorders can controlled two ways: directly through the PIX hardware interface or via a browser accessing the embedded the built-in web-based control panel.
The PIX 270i records and plays Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD Quicktime video files through its 12-bit 4:4:4 3G-SDI at data rates from 330 Mb/s (Apple ProRes 4444) down to 36 Mb/s (Pro- Res and DNxHD proxy files). Files recorded on a PIX 270i can be directly imported by leading editing systems including Avid Media Composer, Apple Final Cut Pro, and Adobe Premiere Pro. And Quicktime files made in an editing system are ready for playback on the PIX 270i.
Up to four SSD drives can connect to the PIX 270i, two in the drive bays behind the front panel and two attached via eSATA. The PIX 270i can record to the four drives simultaneously for redundancy or sequentially for long form recording. PIX SSD drives and files are also accessible over Ethernet as network-attached SMB volumes. In addition to browser-based control, the PIX 270i can be controlled by external RS-422 (Sony 9-pin compatible). Machine transport and setup menu selections are fully controllable.
