Video Scalers
PIX recorders offer powerful, hardware-based video scalers. Realtime conversion among video formats, including 1080i, 1080p, and 720p, are set with a simple menu selection. Conversion between interlaced and progressive, as well as frame rate conversion is available in realtime. For instance, some cameras set to record 24ps send 1080i 60 over HDMI or HD-SDI. PIX recorders can be set to convert the 1080i 60 stream back to 24p with no loss in quality.


Up To 32 Tracks Of Audio
The PIX 260i has extensive audio connectivity. With up to 32 track record/playback capability, the PIX 260i accepts eight channels of line-level analog I/O, eight channels of AES digital, 16 channels of embedded SDI, 8 channels of HDMI, and 32 tracks of audio over Ethernet using Audinate's Dante.

Hardware Video Scaler
Like the PIX 220i and PIX 240i, the PIX 260i includes a high-performance hardware scaler and frame rate converter. Regardless of the incoming signal, the PIX recorders can record the signal after up, down, or cross-conversion at the same or different frame rate. Hardware-based 3:2 pull-down removal is included as well.
