Hands-on with the PIX 240

Sound Devices is known for their high-quality and robust sound recorders and mixers, so we were all surprised to see them announce a video recorder. However, after receiving our first demo units, we were not surprised to see how well made they are.

Like all Sound Devices products the PIX 240 is very durable and solid. If you haven't read about it yet, the PIX 240 records in ProRes or DNxHD formats onto SSDs or Compact Flash cards. It has both HD-SDI and HDMI inputs, as well as timecode and sync connections. And, it also works as a nice small monitor; the built-in LCD has a 800x480 resolution and wide viewing angle. Watch my video above to learn more about the PIX240 and all of its different options.

We stopped by the Sound Devices booth to check out the latest in their line of PIX recorders. The PIX 260 has much the same function as the PIX 240 and PIX 220, but it's designed to fit into a rack.
