The Video Devices PIX 270i complete is a Rack Mount Video Recorder. Includes Rack Mount Video Recorder, XM-Caddy Pack, PIX-SSD6, PIX-Caddy2 and SL-WLP4 power supply

The PIX 270i is a network-connected file-based video deck with an audio-only mode, built specifically for broadcast and live event applications. Like the 250i, it is feature-rich and has scalability that makes it an ideal solution for large-scale applications. Whether used for framesynchronized multi-cam recording for OBs, capturing multiple camera ISO feeds at a sportsstadium, or multi-channel video playback applications, the PIX 270i's compact half-rack, 2U size makes it the perfect alternative to large, difficult-to-use video servers.


Built-In Redundancy
Simultaneous multi-drive recording for redundancy and backup; up to four solid state drives
PowerSafe provides 10-second power reserve for safe shutdown in the eventof complete power loss
FileSafe automatically detects and recovers files that have not been finalized
Redundant 4-pin XLR power connections

Recording Capabilities
Edit-ready Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD® ; up to Apple ProRes 4444 at 330 Mb/s and Avid DNxHD codecs up to 220 Mb/s. Proxy rates of 36 Mb/s also available.

Access and transfer files over Ethernet
Networkable, for group control of multipledecks; external control via RS-422 or via embedded web control panel
Frame synchronized recording and playback of grouped decks for multi-screen presentation

Superior Audio
64 channels of Dante and MADI audio I/O for large-scale audio systems
Eight channels of analog audio
Eight channels of AES digital audio
16 channels embedded SDI; eight channels of embedded HDMI audio

Frame Rate Converter and Scaler
Like the PIX 250i, the PIX 270i features a powerful hardware scaler and frame rate converter. Up, down, cross-conversion and pulldown removal give users the ability to record files in a customer-requested rate, even rates not supported by the camera. The camera-mount PIX 240i video recorder also supports aspect ratio conversion, HD to SD and SD to HD.

Timecode Generator
The on-board high-accuracy Ambient timecode generator makes the PIX 270i right at home on any production from simple single camera shoots, to complex multi-camera sync-sound productions. All common timecode frame rates and modes are supported. Embedded timecode over SDI and HDMI is also supported.

Extensive Video I/O
The video input on the PIX 270i has extensive compatibility with a wide range of cameras. It's BNC input accepts 12-bit 3G SDI (4:4:4 RGB or YCbCr), HD-SDI, SDI. Its HDMI input accepts high-definition and standard-definition video.

With its 3G-SDI 4:4:4 input, recording to ProRes 4444 offers recordings that are perceptually indistinguishable from the original source material.
