More Information

The unit has it’s own in built monitor and also features XLR audio inputs, Ambient Timecode and loop through HD-SDI and HDMI and records to solid state media.

The unit comes with 2x 256GB SSDs and Sony NPF batteries for portable power.

Extensive Video I/O

The video input on the PIX 240 has extensive compatibility with a wide range of cameras. It’s BNC input accepts 12-bit 3G SDI (4:4:4 RGB or YCbCr), HD-SDI, SDI. Its HDMI input accepts high-definition and standard-definition video.

With its 3G-SDI 4:4:4 input, recording to ProRes 4444 offers recordings that are perceptually indistinguishable from the original source material.

Frame Rate Converter and Scaler

The PIX 240 features a powerful 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 240 also supports aspect ratio conversion, HD to SD and SD to HD

Time Code Generator

The on-board high-accuracy Ambient time code generator makes the PIX 240 right at home on any production from simple single camera shoots, to complex multi-camera sync-sound productions. All common time code frame rates and modes are supported. Embedded time code over SDI and HDMI is also supported

IPS Field Monitor

With its 5-inch, IPS display, the PIX 240 becomes an accurate field monitor for production cameras. The display’s accurate colour representation and excellent off-axis visibility assist in framing, exposure evaluation, and focus evaluation. It is complete with 12-step false colour and two-level zebra, peaking, and 1:1 pixel viewing. 

Defeatable detail overlayed 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 state display can be sent to the SDI and HDMI outputs.

Superb Audio Performance

With its deep expertise in production sound, Sound Devices included no-compromise audio performance into the PIX 240. Its full-sized XLR audio inputs accept microphone or line level signals. Microphone-level inputs offer 48 V phantom power, input limiters, and sweepable high-pass filters. Inputs can also be set to accept AES3 digital audio, up to four channels. 

Inputs offer selectable audio delay. Since video cameras often introduce several frames of delay because of internal processing, audio signals connected directly to the PIX 240 can be delayed up to 500 ms to accommodate that delay and provide perfect synchronization between video and audio signals


The PIX 240 offers a wide range of playback features. Off-speed, forward, backward, freeze-frame, looping, and custom playlists give users extensive playback control. File markers can be set while in record or playback mode with the press of a button and loop playback modes allow continuous looping playback of entire files or between files markers. Playlists allow users to quickly organize multiple files for consecutive or loop playback.

File Storage and Transfer

PIX 240 records and plays back Quicktime files to either removable CompactFlash cards or removable 2.5-inch solid-state drives (recording media and PIX-CADDY 2 are optional accessories). Both CompactFlash and SSD media are formatted by PIX recorders as exFAT volumes that are directly mountable, readable, and writable in Mac OS and Windows

Mechanical Construction

The PIX 240 is designed and built for the rigors of field production with a durable chassis made of light weight, moulded, metalized-carbon-fibre. Its four 1/4-20 thread mounts on two different axis offer countless mounting options. All important connections on the PIX 240 use full-sized, locking connectors, including its BNC video and XLR audio connections. Data drives mount to the available PIX-CADDY2 for a secure, hot-swappable, locking data connection.


The side panel rotary knob makes menu navigation fast and simple. Simple controls and a straight-forward plain-language menu makes setups easy for both new and experienced users. Four large, illuminated, tactile record, stop, play, rew, and fast-forward controls are easy to access with gloved hands. Screen and button brightness are adjustable.


The nanoFlash from Convergent Design represents a huge leap forward in tapeless workflows. Easily mounted to your camera, nanoFlash is designed to record higher quality images than the camera itself, by capturing never-compressed video/audio from the HD-SDI or HDMI output.

More Information

nanoFlash utilizes the very high-quality Sony XDCAM 422 CODEC, recording the video/audio onto affordable and readily available Compact Flash Media, at up to 160Mbps (Long-GOP) or 220 Mbps (I-Frame). The footage can be stored in either Quicktime (MOV), MXF, or MPG file formats, providing near-universal NLE support as well as DVD / Blu-Ray authoring formats.

Record direct from an HD-SDI to cheap and easily available CompactFlash cards and record direct to your NLE systems file type. No more transcoding. With variable frame rates at your disposal you can record at 50/100 Mbps (Long GOP) or 220 Mbps (I Frame only).

As both a recorder and player, nanoFlash sports HD-SDI I/O as well as LTC in, wired remote control and a power/start/tally light connector. The NanoFlash is small enough to mount on your camera and will add nothing but versatility to your workflow.
