INFOCOMM PREVIEW: SOUND DEVICES
Sound Devices is presenting its full line of rack-mount recording solutions — the Video Devices Pix 270i and Pix 250i video recorders, and the Sound Devices 970 audio recorder, with new features from its recent Firmware Version 2.30 release at InfoComm 2016 (Booth C6443). As part of this latest update, the company is providing a number of significant enhancements, including a new copy functionality and grouped playback of non-native files.
PIX 270i users now have the ability to group multiple video decks together for frame-accurate playback of non-native files, including those created in Adobe Premiere, Final Cut Pro, and Avid. This new feature is ideal for use with multi-screen video presentations that implement video elements on stage. Timecode recognition from non-native files is also now available for the Pix 270i and Pix 250i.
The update also enables both Pix video decks and the 970 audio deck to copy recorded files and reel folders from one drive to another without the need for a computer. Drive-to-drive copying may be initiated through the device or remotely via the PIXNET web interface.
