Sound Devices’ New PIX-E Field Monitors Are 4K-Capable
Sound Devices (Booth C6040) will preview its Video Devices PIX-E, a new series of camera-mounted recording field monitors. The monitors feature 1920×1080 5-in. (PIX-E5 and PIX-E5H) and 1920×1200 7-in. (PIX-E7) LCDs, a full suite of precision monitoring tools, SDI and HDMI I/O, and the ability to record 4K and Apple ProRes 4444 XQ edit-ready files to affordable mSATA-based SpeedDrives.
The PIX-E monitors feature compact, die-cast metal housings and an LCD display protected by Gorilla Glass 2, suiting them for cinematographers and videographers looking for monitors that can stand up to the rigors of the most extreme and demanding production environments. PIX-E features PIX-Assist, a suite of monitoring tools including TapZoom for focusing speed, false colors, and zebras to help set exposure, guide markers for framing, LUTs, and a range of scopes including waveform monitor, histogram, and vectorscope. The monitors’ user interface combines easy-to-access tactile buttons and an intuitive touchscreen.
