Yet Another HD Capture Option

By: Scott Wells

Sound Devices PIX 220 and PIX 240 video recorders add Quicktime recording using Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD to any HDMI-or HD-SDI equipped high-definition video camera. The portable PIX 220 (HDMI-only) and its sibling the PIX 240 (HDMI and HD-SDI) record Quicktime files to CompactFlash cards or removable 2.5-inch solid-state hard drives. Check for more info at the Sound Devices website.

This device is somewhat similar to the one in my previous post from Atomos. Looks as if it has a few more moves and is somewhat more expensive. A recent client in the studio used one for capture of a live webinar for a Duke Medical Center presenter. He claimed that it was the best piece of production gear he had bought in a long time. Recommended it over the AJA Ki Pro.
