    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.

    Apple ProRes and Avid DNxHD video formats have emerged as industry standards. These I-frame codecs offer the best in picture quality, processing efficiency, and data storage requirements. They are ideal for editing, on-the-fly color grading, and video processing. Files recorded in the field on a PIX recorder are ready for the most popular editorial workflows.

    That's $$$exy. Probably built like a tank, and doesn't start below... $3000, maybe a fair bit more?

    Wow, these things are just coming out of the woodwork in droves now.

    Can't wait to see a head-to-head comparison of all the competing outboard recorders. I'm esp. interested in the quality and feature set of the monitors (for those that have them, like the SDs, and Atamos).

    If that thing is built anything near the quality of my 302 field mixer, I want one. I know that is apples and oranges, but my sound devices mixer will probably survive the end of the world.

    Wow, this is quite a device. I wonder if the prices will be competitive with the Nanoflash.

    Curious that they don't mention anything about timecode. Not that I expect it via HDMI but HD-SDI or some sorta jam would be much appreciated, especially considering the Sound Devices heritage.

    Wow, nice find. Now there's quite a few recorders to choose from. This one has some nice features, but it looks a little bulky for mounting on camera. I'd be interested in price and delivery as well. Sound Devices usually has high quality, but a corresponding high price, too.

    Avid DNXHD is an option. No 4:4:4 option.

    Time Code and Genlock

    Additionally, the PIX 240 has a tunable, high-accuracy time code generator/reader by Ambient complete with Genlock (or word clock) output. The time code source can be derived from an HD-SDI stream, from an external jammed source, or from the built-in generator.
