The PIX-E7 monitor features a compact, die-cast metal housings and an LCD display protected by Gorilla® Glass 2, making it the ideal choice for cinematographers and videographers looking for monitors that can stand up to the rigors of the most extreme and demanding production environments. The PIX-E7 includes PIX-Assist™, an impressive suite of monitoring tools including TapZoom™ for unrivalled focusing speed, false colours and zebras to help set exposure, guide markers for framing, LUTs and a range of scopes including waveform monitor, histogram and vectorscope. These new on-camera monitors incorporate a ‘best-of-both-worlds’ user interface that combines easy-to-access real tactile buttons and intuitive touch screen.
A great monitor needs to be accurate; it must be able to show the finest detail, be viewable in bright sunlight, and have a range of easy-to-access tools that aid with perfecting the focus, exposure, framing and colour balance. These new Video Devices monitors do all of those things and with their ability to record the highest quality Apple ProRes edit-ready video, the PIX-E5 is an affordable, must-have tool for any video production professional
LCD - Detail, Accuracy, Brightness.
Discerning cinematographers and videographers need high-resolution, colour-accurate, sunlight-viewable monitoring with a wide angle of view.
The PIX-E7 Series monitor excels in all those aspects with its IPS, 500 nit, 1920x1200 (7-inch) display.
PIX-Assist™ Monitoring Tools & Scopes
Four Way View
Its never been faster to zoom in and check focus!
TapZoom provides instant 2x or 4x zoom to where you tap on the touchscreen. Tap again to zoom out.
Once zoomed in, tap on the screen in the direction of a moving subject to keep it centered - the perfect tool for quickly checking focus when an actor lands short or overruns a mark
Outstanding Recording Capabilities
The 4K-compatible PIX-E Series are the first on-camera monitors to offer the full range of Apple ProRes codecs including the highest quality Apple ProRes 4444 XQ*. This is a 12-bit codec designed to preserve the detail in wide dynamic range imagery captured by today's high performance digital image sensors.
PIX-E can record 4K up to 24 fps, UHD up to 30 fps and 1080p or 720p up to 60 fps.
SpeedDrive™ Recording and File Delivery
The PIX-E records to the affordable, super fast SpeedDrive, an industry standard mSATA drive contained within a custom-designed enclosure. The SpeedDrive, which plugs directly into the PIX-E, doubles as a USB 3.0 thumb drive for very high speed offload to any computer without the need for a special cable or drive docking station.
Two SpeedDrive options are available, a 240 GB SpeedDrive and an Enclosure-Only version that allows the user to choose and easily fit any size of mSATA drive. mSATA drives are available in sizes ranging from 128 GB to 1 TB.
Best-of-Both-Worlds User Interface
Some functions are better controlled via touchscreen and others by real buttons. PIX-E incorporates both types of control. The touchscreen is best used when interacting directly with a specific area of the displayed image such as zooming in to a point of interest with TapZoom.
Buttons allow the operator to locate a control without looking and instant tactile response leaves no doubt a function has been activated. Button control is well suited to commands such as 'Record' where failure to activate can be catastrophic.
Mechanical Construction and Powering
With their compact, die-cast metal chassis, nutted connectors, and an LCD protected by scratch-resistant and optically-bonded Gorilla Glass 2, the PIX-E field recording monitors are designed to withstand the most extreme and demanding production environments.
The PIX-E monitors are powered by external DC (10-34V) or dual L-mount Sony batteries with powering seamlessly switching from one source to another should one become depleted or removed.
