The PIX 270i file-based video deck delivers the performance, quality, and reliability required for fast-paced studio, live sports, event, and mobile multi-camera production. It seamlessly replaces tape-based and disc-based video decks and provides a cost-effective and compact alternative to complex video servers. Extensive network connectivity and multi-unit synchronization support grouping multiple PIX recorders over Ethernet for simultaneous frame-accurate multicam recording and playback.
The PIX 270i can group with other PIX 270i recorders, as well as the PIX 260i, with all of the recorders functioning as a single system. The grouped recorders can controlled two ways: directly through the PIX hardware interface or via a browser accessing the embedded built-in web-based control panel.

The PIX 270i file-based video deck delivers the performance, quality, and reliability required for fast-paced studio, live sports, event, and mobile multi-camera production. It seamlessly replaces existing tape-based and disc-based video decks and provides a cost-effective and compact alternative to complex video servers.
Extensive Video I/O
Extensive network connectivity and multi-unit synchronization support grouping multiple PIX recorders over Ethernet for simultaneous frame-accurate multicam recording and playback. The PIX 270i can group with other PIX 270i recorders, as well as PIX 260i, and PIX 250i units, with all of the recorders functioning as a single system. The grouped recorders can be controlled two ways: directly through the PIX hardware interface or via a browser accessing the embedded built-in web-based control panel.
Simultaneous or Sequential Recording to Four Drives
The PIX 270i records and plays back either Quicktime video or audio-only WAV files to removable 2.5-inch solid-state drives (drives and PIX-CADDY 2 are optional accessories). Recording to multiple drives offers immediate file backup, eliminating time-consuming post-record copying.
Frame synchronized transport control between multiple grouped PIX 270i's. Record, Play, Stop, Pause, Jog (frame by frame), Shuttle, Fast Forward and Rewind.
Advanced Metadata Editing
Edit scene, take, notes, track names and circle metadata for next take, current take and previous takes even while recording. All edits ripple across all drives being recorded to.
PIXNET Network Control
The PIX 270i can be controlled from browser-capable computers and tablets. When connected to a data network, transport controls and setup menu controls are available on PIXNET. PIXNET offers control of one or multiple PIX 270i recorders. Multiple units can be grouped for simultaneous control.
Record, play, stop, fast-forward, rewind, shuttle, jog, and locate control is available over RS-422. Remote control further enhanced by GPIO ports and standard USB keyboards. USB keyboards also offer menu navigation and text entry.
The PIX 270i offers a wide range of playback features. Playback control includes off-speed, forward, reverse, jog, shuttle, freeze-frame, looping, and custom playlists. File markers can be set either while recording or playing back with the press of a button. Loop playback offers continuously looped playback of whole files or between files markers. Playlists help organize multiple files for consecutive or loop playback.
IPS Preview Monitor
With its 5-inch, IPS display, the PIX 270i becomes an accurate video signal evaluation monitor. The display’s excellent color accuracy and off-axis visibility assist in framing, exposure evaluation, and focus evaluation, both during recording and playback.
Defeatable detail overlays on the picture includes audio metering, time code, file type, record status, and frame rate information. The display also doubles as a fast, simple menu interface.
Time Code and record status display can be over-layed on the SDI and HDMI outputs.
Drag and Drop Transfer
Drives connected to a PIX 270i are accessible on Ethernet-based networks as read and write SMB shares, opening up endless possibilities for file sharing. Files can be copied to or from any PIX 270i located on a network, from access across a room or across the globe. Drives can be automaticaly switched to Ethernet when they are full.
Time Code Generator with Genlock
The internal, high-accuracy Ambient time code generator makes the PIX 270i at home on complex, multi-camera and sync-sound productions. All common time code frame rates and modes are supported. Embedded time code over SDI and HDMI is also supported.
Scaler and Frame Rate Converter
The PIX 270i features a hardware scaler and frame rate converter. Up, down, cross-conversion, and pulldown removal give users the ability to record files in a customer-requested rate, even rates not supported by the camera. The PIX 270i also supports aspect ratio conversion, HD to SD and SD to HD.
PowerSafe and Dual Power Supplies
PowerSafe circuitry provides a constant 10-second power reserve. In the event of power loss, the PIX 270i continues to operate for up to 10 seconds, then cleanly stops any file operation and safely shuts down. The PIX 270i draws 10-27 VDC through a four-pin XLR connector. A secondary connection allows connection to redundant power supplies.
PIX 270i's convenient 1/2-rack, 2U chassis dimension allows it to be easily integrated into any existing environment. It is powered by 10-27 VDC through its four-pin XLR connector.
The PIX-RACK (sold separately), includes one full 19" 2U rack (holds two PIX 270is), one blank panel and screws.
